Kimora Lee Simmons Shuts Down Rumors That She’s Pregnant Again
A few days ago, we posted a photo of Kimora Lee Simmons looking like she was ready lock in for another 9 months of gestation.
But the fashion mogul recently sat down with Fashionista and set the record straight:
I mean, I just had a baby — he’s right over there — and they’re already asking me if I’m pregnant, honey. I tell them, no that’s just the belly I didn’t lose. I’m wearing it and I’m not anybody’s size two, I’m a size you-know-who, honey.
On the following page, Kimora speaks on the negative racial connotations that are associated with the word “urban”?

F:I wouldn’t usually use this term because it can be pretty loaded, but do you think this line is less urban than people might expect from you?
Kimora:What does urban mean?
Well that’s a really good question. What do you think urban means?
I think it means, in the city.
Would you call Kimora Lee Simmons urban?
Not only. I would call it city chic or city sleek.
I come from Phat Fashions, where we had a jean company and we were, you know, in mass distribution. There were only a handful of people doing what Russell and I did. That was a time where, I think because we looked a certain way, people thought that was urban.
I think it means a lot of different things. I never liked that narrow urban connotation because it pigeon-holes people. This line is not an entry-level price point; it is obviously more at a designer price point. [Ed note: Prices range from around $600 to $3,500.] It is high quality fabrications, it’s luxury, it’s tailored.
I’m of mixed heritage. You can find designers of all different races now, so if people mean urban to maybe indicate a skin color or some association there, I’ve grown up. KLS is elegant, it’s multicultural, it’s sexy, it’s chic, it’s refined.
What does “urban” mean to you? Is it just an offensive euphemism for “black”?
