From the mind of Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in brew bits, kimora lee | Posted on 08-27-2010
If you’ve been following the riveting Twitter story, you know that Kimora Lee Simmons (Hounsou?) has severed her relationship with Kellwood the owners of that line of teenybopper urban ”fashion” Baby Phat. KeKe clearly gets worked over in the Photoshop lab, hard… I mean yea obviously it must take a team of Photoshop geniuses to massage the hell out of that neck ring urrah… but now a 6’0″ tall woman can’t be a size 10? Suck it Fashion Industry—for real. Oh and, let me take this moment to make this public service fashion announcement:
“NO ONE OVER 21 SHOULD BE WALKING AROUND WITH A GIANT BABY PHAT CAT, ANYWHERE ON THEIR PERSON!”
But another Baby Phat insider it could have been a way to slash costs: “Kimora was going over-budget. She’d pay herself a fee to be in the ads, plus she paid her children fees to appear in ads. It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her because she’s a size 10. Plus, they spent a ton of money on body doubles. They would shoot another model in the clothes, and take Kimora’s head and put in on her body.”Story
In April, Jezebel matched Kimora’s body in her “Dare Me” perfume ad to that of Daria Werbowy on French Vogue‘s March 2005 cover.
