Fashion Week Fall 2008- Baby Phat

It’s that time of year again! Fall fashion week is going down in NY. It actually started last week; the GF is just trying to get caught up with all that’s fabulous and fashionable in the NYC.

Here are some highlights from the Baby Phat collection, which for the most part was filled with black and grays and included ‘exclamation point’ splashes of color in the form of colorful handbags.

Kimora Lee Simmons Has a Fab New HIt

So I tuned in to Kimora Lee’s “Life in the Fab Lane” this evening and the GF must admit- I LOVED it. I kept thinking she must have serious attrition issues with her employees, because though she lovingly refers to herself as “Mama” when setting her employees expectations and beating them into submission, she is truly the boss from hell. In spite of her hellish employee relations, I really enjoyed this show. I’m certain that it will be my new guilty pleasure for the next few weeks.

The season premiere had her entire staff on edge as they prepared for a “Russian-themed” photo shoot for her bi-annual ad campaign. None of the fashions featured seemed particularly Siberian-influenced, but Ms. Simmons looked gorgeous.

The other exciting thing revealed during the show was that Kimmi will have her very own Barbie. I loved the way she stuck it to the Mattel execs when they tried to get her to either sacrifice the length of her chinchilla, or not have a dog as part of the dolls release. This woman is smart, and has earned the right to call herself a mogul. I fell in love with her when I read her book “Fabulosity”- I know, I couldn’t believe that I could get through it either, but like I said, she’s smart; and as one intelligent woman to another, I loved to read about how she got her hustle ON.

The show can be seen on Sunday’s at 8pm on the Style Network; check your local listings for more details.
