Kimora Puts Her Foot Down, lol!

As an ex-model and current fashion designer, Kimora Lee Simmons has learned a lot about clothing over the years – including what not to let daughters Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5, wear.

"I would not let my daughters show their midriff," she said this week at the New York City launch of her new juniors line at JCPenney. It was even tough for her to see Ming in her halter dress. "That's a lot for me," she admitted.

"I feel like I've exposed my kids to a lot," Simmons said of her parenting philosophy. "We do lead a very high-voltage life so we have to taper back in other ways."

It's an attitude Simmons, 33, shares with her boyfriend, actor and model Djimon Honsou, 44. "He's very protective of them," she said.
Honsou certainly acted like a member of the family at the launch party at Hiro. He hugged Aoki, and quickly swept the girls away from the cameras while their mother answered questions on the red carpet.

Simmons and Honsou also work together to balance family and career. "We help each other do everything," Simmons said. "He's very supportive."

Honsou also helped Simmons deal with the aftermath of her divorce from mogul Russell Simmons, 50, the father of Ming and Aoki. "I know that women everywhere, especially with kids, understand what I'm saying. It's difficult when you go through a break-up, and it's heavenly to find a supportive system," she said.

I wonder if they are going to be like Bruce, Demi and Ashton? Do you think that Russell could handle it? or Do you think that Kimora could not?

Sounds like she has a good head on her shoulders, I bet she'll do just fab with her family :) Love the blog btw doll, since you know what's up in style and fashion I have to ask if you've heard about If Looks Could Kill yet? I work for Toyota, who released an interactive web series that follows an aspiring fashion designer, Bianca (Femi Emiola, Wicked Wicked Games), into a world of espionage.

And with each webisode, viewers are given a chance at winning prizes, like digital cameras, laptops, and all that fab stuff each week. This week's winner will get a trip to NYC + major shopping spree, and 150 people will win a Bluefly or MAC gift card. Next week: the grand prize is a fully loaded '09 Toyota Camry XLE! Fingers crossed, girl! ;)

Hope I haven't overstepped my bounds by contacting you directly. I'd love to get your take on ILCK since it's clear bloggers like yourself are in-the-know about what's hot and current, so I figured this would be something to catch your interest. If you're into it, check out:

Looking forward to hearing from you honey!
