    I thought anyone with a functioning brain could figure it out. This is one writer who noticed

    http://www.airmassive.com/amblog_063004_1.html

    And there are other articles which I distinctly remember having written so but quite frankly dont feel like taking the time looking for them. I do have a life after all. :flower:

    Just type "Baby Phat ad maid" in a search engine. You'll find some articles.

    well the maid is part of reality i mean whats wrong with a rich woman being with kids and a baby sitter i sincerely dont see nothinbg wrong with the maid. Many people have their maids help them with dressing up you didnt expect her maid to wear studded baby phat jeans now did we??

    i still dont understand why people should always put racism in every cup of tea, coffee or even chocolate. Just see something and love or hate it. i believe the maids are people not latinas just like kimora is a designer no one has mentioned her race yet..>>

    Urban Stylin, latina women stereotyped as MAIDS in the US .. I dunno if you just aren't aware of it because you are not in the US; so many cultural references seem vague and lost ... now me being a latino infuriates me seeing this type of portrayal ... so much I'd rather have her spitting on my face ... please note that I've ever EVER felt this way about something that has been posted in tFS. And yes, to many people it may seem racist, to many people may seem as a reality (though I dont think Kimora is protesting with these ads) ..but the fact is there's a maid in the ad and is latina.
    I'm not taking it personal towards you or any of the people who posts in this thread ... Kimora Lee just seems to prove the type of person she's with this ads.
    That's it! :flower:

    I find Kimora, her clothing line and these ads horribly tacky and self-serving. :yuk: As someone else mentioned it's quite a contrast to show that luxurious home and the maids while wearing clothes that look as if they are straight from the ghetto. What is she selling really? The average person who wears 'urban' labels doesn't live in a mansion and the people who live in mansions don't usually wear ghetto fabulous clothes. The ads aren't realistic imho.

    I think that she and her husband have both done extremely well for themselves. Kimmora looks gorgeous in other designer clothes, and I think she wanted to have a clothing brand of her own, but it's very stereotypical that tacky ghetto girls wear it, and it's making her a bunch of money so why not play it up. Using the maids is so that the brand looks glamorous. Don't really like that idea :innocent:

    definitely...She's somewhat slender, but she's not THAT slender. I think she was MUCH more beautiful when she was younger.

    I think the bangs age her, at least the pictures that I've seen of her. If you go to Getty Images, search for her, and look at the last pages, you can see older pics of her where I think she looks quite pretty.

    I think she looks good in that one...but her new ads seem too "plastic" to me...

    While I was getting my hair done today I was looking through a Bazaar from Januray 2004 and it had some article on Kimora in the back with pictures of her house and it included her latina maids. :rolleyes:

    And she says she has 300 pairs of jeans! What are you going to do with 300 pairs of Jeans? I think its time for her to take a trip to the salvation army... :innocent:
