Early in her careerKim France accomplished something that not many people can boast about: She launched a successful magazine, from the ground up. In 1999, Conde Nast hired France to launch a brand new shopping pub. Thus, Lucky was born.

Nowadays, France focuses on her latest passion project: Girls of a Certain Age, a fashion site dedicated to the over-40 crowd. And she has plenty of advice for today’s youth: “Do what you’re asked to do, and do it with a smile,” France says. “People will notice that you’re somebody who really wants to get work done and do it well.”
