And Kenzo Was His Name-O

Today Page Six published a report on Kimora’s new baby, revealing his name and the inspiration behind it.

KIMORA has a Kenzo. Kimora Lee Simmons (above) and Djimon Hounsou gave their baby boy the very fashionable name Kenzo Lee Hounsou, inspired no doubt by retired Japanese fashion icon Kenzo Takada. Kenzo, born here Saturday, weighed in at 8 pounds, and was 20 inches long. “He’s a little prince,” said a friend. This is Kimora’s third child — she has two daughters, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, with her ex-husband, Russell Simmons.

Exciting News from The Fab Lane

Kimora is on it!

The Queen of Fabulosity has inked an exciting deal with Steve Madden.

Under the new partnership, KLS will design, manufacture, market and distribute a collection of footwear and accessories for the Fabulosity brand with Steve Madden.

With Kimora as director, the collection will include women’s footwear, handbags, belts, small leather goods, and cosmetic bags for young fashionistas.

Any thoughts on where we’ll be able to buy them?

You guessed it!

The new line will be at JC Penney retail stores beginning in early 2009.



Kimora Covers Giant Magazine

Ms. Fabulosity, Kimora Lee Simmons, covers the June/July issue of Giant Magazine.

Here’s an excerpt from the cover feature.

Love her or hate her, Kimora Lee Simmons is a force to be reckoned with in the worlds of fashion, beauty and entertainment. Here, the often misunderstood mogul strips down and speaks candidly about her public image, her divorce from Russell Simmons and what it’s like to be a woman on top.

Sitting in the back of her silver Range Rover, Kimora Lee Simmons is wearing an itty-bitty black Victoria’s Secret slip with a cleavage-enhancing, bustier-like bodice. She’s not filming a video or staging some seductive scene for her beau, Academy Award-nominated actor and Calvin Klein underwear model Djimon Hounsou (of Blood Diamond fame). No, her lingerie ensemble came directly from the GIANT cover shoot she just wrapped. In the interest of time, the 33-year-old chief creative officer of Phat Fashions (which includes the clothing lines Baby Phat, Phat Farm. Phat Farm Kids and the new juniors’ label Fabulosity) plans to change clothes in the SUV en route to the posh Beverly Hills Hotel, where we’ll chat over lunch.
