Courtney Simms speaks at the kickoff event for the Total Makeover Madness College Tour.
Tallahassee, FL. – Florida A&M University (FAMU) student Courtney Simms is the new spokesperson of Fashion Fair Cosmetics. According to representatives from Fashion Fair Cosmetics, Simms has the beauty, youthfulness and passion they were looking for.
“She was the right person to represent our brand,” said representatives from Fashion Fair Cosmetics. “We’re proud to have her as one of the newest members of the Fashion Fair family.”
A Gary, Indiana native, Simms is a journalism student, a member of the Presidential Ambassadors and Images Modeling Troupe at FAMU.
As a spokesperson and model, Simms is currently participating in the Total Makeover Madness College Tour, which will culminate at FAMU during Homecoming week on October 31. The tour, in its second year, is tailored to create a lively atmosphere for college students to enhance their beauty, receive tips on fitness and hair care and to receive job and scholarship information. As part of the tour, Fashion Fair will offer 15-minute complimentary beauty makeovers, consultations on skin and hair care and fitness demonstrations. Sponsored by Macy’s, FAMU’s own Images Modeling Troupe will show off the season’s latest fashions in a student fashion show.
Simms said she is enjoying getting accustomed to her new life.
“I love it, especially the opportunity to travel for the company. I am managing quite well, actually,” she said. “I still attend school like a normal student and hang out with friends; I don’t feel overwhelmed at all. Fashion Fair is allowing me to balance school and work.”
Simms will also be instrumental in helping the company reach the younger consumer and she is involved with Fashion Fair Cosmetics’ print campaign, “Inspire Your World.” The campaign can be seen in the latest issues of EBONY and JET magazines and on www.fashionfair.com.
Simms said this experience is more than she dreamed it would be.
“I felt a euphoric rush [when I found out],” said Simms. “Never in my life did I think I would be a spokes model for a major cosmetic line. My dream was to become a model, but I am living way past my dream.”
