Ace on the ramp

Did you know Serena Williams loves Kimora Lee Simmons and her designer products? And to show this, the reigning US Open champion stepped out in a black dress and pretty-yet-painful-looking platform heels at the designer’s Baby Phat show in Manhattan this week.
“I love Kimora,” gushed Serena, who moonlights as a fashion designer for Aneres (her name spelled backward). “She’s a great person and I love her fashions.”
Williams said she’s amazed by Simmons’ “whole persona”. The star of The Style Network reality series Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane has never been shy about her love for the good life and all things blingy.
As expected, her latest show was high on fabulousity. She trotted out jumpsuits, hot pants and dresses in a variety of colours including turquoise and lilac. Sparkly gold panties peeked out from under a super short khaki dress; in a more ladylike look, a safari-inspired denim jacket topped a pair of wide-legged pants —worn with heels.
Simmons also made an appearance on the ramp. The smiling designer walked the runway with daughters Ming and Aoki.
