Baby Phat Founder Sacked For Spending A Fortune To Re-Touch Her Own Photos!

26 August 2010

Oh dear. It seems that in these hard times, savings have to be found. Like Baby Phat, who have ‘let go’ their founder and 'face' for the label - hip hop wife and bargain clothes impresario, Kimora Lee Simmons.

Normally when things like this happen we’d speculate on the cause of the rift, because Kimora herself said in a statement - "It's time for me to move on and further expand my other businesses and create a new phenomenon. I adore all those who have faithfully been with me since the beginning."

...SO it's funny that a source from the brand itself has said - 'Kimora was going over-budget. She'd pay herself a fee to be in the ads, plus she paid her children fees to appear in ads. It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her because she's a [US] size 10. Plus, they spent a ton of money on body doubles. They would shoot another model in the clothes, and take Kimora's head and put in on her body.'

We say – silly billies! Why didn’t they get the body model to wear a Kimora mask? All you need to make one of those is a colour photocopier and a pair of scissors.

OR! Here’s a radical thought – let the size 10 Kimora (that's a UK size 14) be her own body double. She looks fine from where we’re standing!
