Fashion designer and model Kimora Lee Simmons was on stage at The Dubai Mall fashion catwalk presenting a style session to an audience of fashion VIP's in collaboration with Galaries Lafayette and Dubai Summer Surprises. The gorgeous model, who was first discovered by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld was offering fashion tips and advice to some of the UAE’s top stylists, as well as strutting her stuff on the catwalk, offering tips to a packed audience on how to perfect their model skills.
The show saw three Dubai fashion stylists (including our very own fashion editor) choose outfits from Galaries Lafayette for a number of categories. It was then up to Kimora to choose which outfit she liked best. Of course she loved them all but when she had to choose Kimora always opted for fashion-forward fitted ensembles.
Kimora is here in the UAE launching her new high-end fashion label KLS. The mum-of-three is positioning her new brand much higher than the Baby Phat label she owned until 2010. When it launches this spring KLS will be available online for UAE customers. Team Ahlan! got to chat to Kimora while she was here and she told us she loves being a designer but always makes time for her children and husband Tim Leissner (and they are so in love!)
Kimora also dished the dirt on fellow models Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks, but you’ll have to wait until next week’s issue of Ahlan! to find out more! For more pictures of the event click here....
