Kimora Lee Simmons demands faux-fur coat for her Barbie doll

Kimora Lee Simmons

Model-turned-fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons’ new Barbie doll comes with a faux-fur coat, in a bid to show young girls they can look “fabulous” without skinning animals.

The designer and reality TV star admits she was thrilled when toymakers Mattel decided to model a Barbie in her likeness, but she had one recommendation.

She says, “She has a faux-fur chinchilla coat, because I want to show kids that synthetic fur can be fabulous, too. She’s everything a Barbie is supposed to be.”

Simmons isn’t the only celebrity to inspire a modern Barbie – a Hilary Duff doll has also been created recently.

Kimora Lee files for divorce from Russell Simmons

Kimora Lee Simmons

Kimora Lee Simmons filed for divorce from Russell Simmons, Tuesday, according to reports.

The couple had announced that they split up in March of 2006, but said that they had already been separated for some time.

In court papers, Kimora, 32, cites irreconcilable differences and asks for legal and physical custody of the couple’s two daughters, Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5. She requests that Simmons, 50, get “reasonable child visitation … to be accompanied at all times by the children’s nanny and security personnel.

So, he gets visitation of his children with their nanny and security detail? That’s awful generous of her. (Insert sarcasm here.)

Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons’ ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons wants to honor her late dog by turning the pet’s remains into a diamond. The Baby Phat model and fashion designer is in mourning after 18-year-old bitch Zoe’s recent death. But she is contemplating celebrating Zoe’s life with a new piece of jewelry.

She tells People.com, “You have to… grieve. It’s okay to take time and say this meant something to my life and (to) honor it. “There is a company that makes diamonds out of your loved ones. They make diamonds from a little of the carbon from the ash, so I might do that. I might turn her into a diamond.”
