Kim Kardashian Taps Former Inmate Alice Johnson to Model SKIMS Shapewear [VIDEO]

*A year after Kim Kardashian helped free 64-year-old mom Alice Johnson from prison, the reality TV star has tapped the former inmate to star in the debut campaign for her SKIMS Solutionwear. 

Johnson was serving time for a non-violent drug charge when Kardashian made headlines after she won the great-grandmother’s freedom last year. Johnson served 21 years of a 25-year sentence before Kimmy came to her rescue.  

“I was serving a 25 year sentence without the possibility of parole. Kim saw a video of me. She heard my story,” Johnson says in a campaign video. “And by the way, I didn’t even know who Kim Kardashian was! She went to war for me to fight for my freedom. That’s why I call her my ‘war angel,’ because nothing stood between her and my freedom.”

She continued: “I was set free on June the 6th 2018. So now every moment in life is precious to me. This shapewear makes me feel that I can walk into the store, I can pick up something that I normally wouldn’t think about wearing and I can put it on, and it’s going to look great on me.”

Kardashian was forced to rename her shapewear line to SKIMS after Asians expressed outrage across social media over the original name “Kimono”.

Earlier this week Kardashian announced SKIMS will launch on Sept. 10.

“I love the idea that the pieces will be the closest thing to someone’s skin, skimming with amazingly soft and supportive fabrics which accentuate the best parts of our bodies. Available in sizes XXS – 5XL, SKIMS Solutionwear™ is for every body. SKIMS.COM. #ShowYourSKIMS,” she wrote on Instagram (see her post above).
