A 1990s supermodel, Shimizu marks a return to modeling with the launch of the lip collection. Discovered in the early 1990s while at trade school to become a mechanic, Jenny was soon being photographed by luminaries like Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. She made history when she appeared in the campaign for Calvin Klein's eponymous fragrance, CK One, and was the first Asian model to walk the runway for Prada, challenging the traditional rules of gender, age and race. Now 49, she is now working towards becoming a Los Angeles police officer, as she felt driven to serve her community.
"Jenny is not just the face of Girl, but a partner and an inspiration – she is fearless, confident, and passionate. She is more than a model; she is a role model," said Hourglass founder Carisa Janes. "It's imperative that we are sharing stories, like Jenny's, of confidence, inspiration and of making a difference."
The beauty brand has also created the #GIRLFORGOOD social media campaign with the launch.
