    I've never felt SO insulted in my life by any other ad as this ones.
    (If asking why, it's the maid)
    I swear to God if I ever see Kimora, she'll be humbled!

    I now understand why Janice couldn't stand Kimora. She is such a show-off and I HATE people who show up worthy material (father :rolleyes:). Her ads just scream see Im rich and look at how Im living yet I still wear my cheap ass Walmart clothes :rolleyes:. I dont understand what the maid is doing in their unless they also open a line of maidswear.

    It's not only hip-hop stars that wear Baby Phat. She has customers of many different backgrounds believe it or not.

    How is her airbrushing different than *any* other celebrity featured in magazines?

    She should burn in hell, along with her clothes, end of story.

    EEEWWW OH GOD she is so gross. What were they thinking, putting the poor maid in there?! Sometimes I wonder...do these people not SEE themselves at all, do they not realize how stupid and trashy and stuck up they appear to the rest of the world.

    Who conceives these ads? It looks like Kimora is ignoring her daughter's outstretched hand and the maid on the stairs isn't watching where she's putting her foot. :shock: And the 2 maids look like twins. Weird. But Kimora does look sort of more glam in this one.

    What i don't like is she copies things from couture designers and makes a tacky street version...she needs to stop...she wouldn't have ever been a designer if her husband wasn't Simmons. :wacko:

    I think she is trying to make a statement with the maid in the picture.

    Not a good or valid one.

    In conclusion she and her husband are former slummers who got lucky and made money.

    That pic is so dumb? Why does she include the maids? I can't explain it but it is so stupid

    Isn't it obvious?

    All the maids used in the ads are latina women. She is stereotyping.

    The more I look at the photos I see that her face is fat. That fat face should be accompanied with a larger body, no?

    Of course I noticed that!! But it's just hard to understand the logic BEHIND why she included the element in the ads. :unsure:

    How can she be stereotyping if these are her actual maids? The January 04 Harper's Bazaar KM article features photographs around her home and we see these same women as in the current campaign.

    I think Baby Phat is a hoochie, ghetto and trashy tee and jeans business with a runway show thrown in to get press. Awful clothes and therefore these are awful ads. However KM looks great in non-Baby Phat clothes and I don't judge her luxurious lifestyle. She seems to be a girl having fun.

    She should have hired a model. And I don't understand the maids... why are they there? They aren't wearing the clothes. Not unless Baby Phat came out with a line of maid wear.

    They are not her actual maids. I've read two articles saying that they were hired to play maids for Kimora's ads.

    Remember she lives in Jersey not California ;)

    :lol:

    Anyway, the ads are terrible, the clothes that the "maids" are wearing look nicer than the crap that Kimora threw on her own body, and the air-brushing could not be more obvious. Kimora Lee Simmons was the "muse" (or whatever) of Karl Lagerfield of Chanel for years (supposedly.) She couldn't have picked a thing or two up about style from him in the time she was gadding about with him? Bah. :doh:
