Molly Sims is recognized for her work as an actress, model and active humanitarian. Sims is also often noted for her savvy sense of style and fashion, and is expanding her list of credits with her upcoming book, The Everyday Supermodel. The book is the ultimate girl’s guide to everything fashion, fitness, diet and lifestyle. Additionally, she founded the eponymous jewelry collection aptly named Grayce by Molly Sims, which made its exclusive debut on HSN in the Fall of 2009. In Spring 2010, Molly launched Grayce, The Collection.
Molly’s acting career began to soar after she landed the coveted role as host on MTV’s House of Style. In addition to her contract with MTV at the time, Sims gained even more recognition after signing an exclusive, multi-year contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics, joining an elite group of spokeswomen. Furthermore, the Southern beauty gained even more attention as the ultimate celebrity icon from her Old Navy commercials and, of course, her sultry images in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue four years consecutively.
Although her full time residence is now in Los Angeles, Molly spends much of her time in New York City—the city she considers her second home. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, and yoga.
