ON THE SCENE- THE BABY PHAT FASHION SHOW 09'



Hey guys welcome back ..enjoy one of my articles.
For many years now designer Kimora Lee Simmons' Baby Phat shows has been
one of the hottest tickets in town during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. And
this year's Decade celebration show last Friday, Sept 12th, was no
exception. The show was held at it's usual venue, the amazing Roseland Ballroom. The atmosphere backstage before the show was exciting. Models were getting their finishing touches and press awaited eagerly for the first looks and exclusive interviews with the woman of the hour. Armed with my gold All Access Pass, I was able to see Kimora emerge from her dressing room wearing a charming green 70's inspired strapless jumper, with lots of gold accessories. One of the
reporters complemented Kimora on her gold ring and the Diva instantly took the ring off and gave it to the reporter, how Fab is that! Like the Baby Phat shows in the past there was lots of star power. Celebrities such as Andre Leon Tally of Vogue, tennis great Serena Williams, basketball star Carmello Anthony accompanied by his fiancé/MTV host La La Vasquez, singer Aubrey O'Day of Danity Kane, model/actress Joy
Bryant, Rapper Jada Kiss, and many more flooded the front rows. As the
lights dimmed the moment we all waited almost an extra hour for was
finally here. A huge monitor at the head of the runway showed a video of
Baby Phat's growth and evolution over the last decade. The fabrics flowed
and the accessories glowed as Kimora showcase the perfect juxtaposition of
modern high fashion and vintage urban chic. The colors were bright and the
hair was straight and long. Inspired by the looks of the sixties and
seventies; with wide leg pants, headscarves and beautiful ethnic prints
that were candy to the eyes, Wood Stock came to 5th Ave. Purple and green
were seen all over the runway. The models wore denim shorts that can be
worn as underpants and swimsuits that double as tops . With funky music
and flashing lights this show was quite an extravaganza from start to
finish. I truly enjoyed it. The notable absence of Russell Simmons who has never missed a show until now was further highlighted as Kimora' new love Djimon Honsu took Russell's usual place at the beginning of the catwalk and accepted the traditional hugs and kisses from adorable daughters and little fashionista's in training, Ming and Akoi Lee Simmons.Kimora Lee Simmons is well known for her Faboulosity, so it was no surprise that the after party was over the top. The post show festivities were held at The Plaza Hotel on 59th street and 5th ave. There was a private dinner in the Terrace room followed by guests moving
upstairs for more champagne, music by DJ Cassidy and dancing in The Grand
Ballroom. Kimora changed into a ravishing gold sequenced gown and was a
gracious host to partygoers including actor Ice Tea and wife CoCo, singers
Maxwell and Latoya Luckett among other stars. Coupled with great clothing,
celebrities and a luxurious ambiance the Baby Phat experience was a night
to remember.
