Baby Phat S/S 2008 : Kimora Lee Simmons by Camilla Akrans
Is this even fashion? Gosh, not her again!


WWD

Quote:
ON THE BEACH: Given the strength of the euro against the dollar, perhaps it's no surprise Baby Phat used the beaches of Malibu, Calif., to represent Saint-Tropez in its spring ad campaign. Photographer Camilla Akrans, who shot Missoni and Eres for fall, captured Kimora Lee Simmons in form-fitting denim and all-white outfits for the ads, which was inspired by the French resort. For the second season, ads for KLS Collection also were shot; however, Simmons decided to use a model instead of posing herself, to maintain the idea that Baby Phat and KLS Collection are two separate brands. Collectively for spring, the ad buy increased by about 20 percent. The images for Baby Phat will break in the March issues of Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar and Nylon, among others, while KLS Collection will make its debut in W, followed by Elle, Visionaire and Harper's Bazaar throughout the spring and summer season.

she should do what she wants...but don't call it high fashion or being overpriced since it isnt...for the majority it is okay...they love to see playboy shoots...that makes them feel sexy like her on the beach...lol
