    Baby Phat Creates Scary Kimora Barbie DollWe’ve literally spent months preparing for the release of Baby Phat’s Kimora Lee Simmons Barbie Doll; we even got a terrifying sneak peek of the damn thing at Fashion Week. But today we’re filled with a new level of fear upon learning that this little hell doll is back-ordered until February 29. We mean, it’s one thing to give your child a toy that looks like a miniature hooker. This is, after all, the day and age of the Bratz, so we can’t really judge anymore. But when said hooker doll has a wait list?

    Designers Catch Yellow FeverWe were expecting grays, browns, and blacks for fall. But banana yellow? Not so much. Kimora Lee Simmons sent Little Miss Sunshine down the runway in a floor-length yellow dress at Baby Phat, while Lacoste complemented the loud color with a dark cardigan. And Nicole Miller brightened up traditionally dark outerwear with a three-quarter-sleeved coat of color. This isn’t mellow yellow.

    Tyra Banks and Vivica A. Fox Speak On the Fabulosity of KimoraAmid the usual chaos backstage at Baby Phat, Jada Yuan managed to catch up with not only label designer Kimora Lee Simmons, but also Tyra Banks, Robert Verdi, Star Jones, and Vivica A. Fox, who each testified to Kimora’s “fabulosity,” as Fox put it. “Kimora is big, she’s over-the-top, she’s a grande dame,” said Banks; “she taught me ‘off the hook’ and ‘off the chain’ — and the chain is actually diamonds, when it’s Kimora’s chain,” added Verdi. Indeed. Watch the video for more.

    Baby Phat Invents ‘Understated Bling’Only at Baby Phat could black-on-black nails embellished with black crystals be considered low-key. But as Creative Nail Design co-founder Jan Arnold explained backstage before the show, Kimora Lee Simmons decided to go with an “understated bling” look this year. Now there’s a contradiction. New York Magazine Beauty Editor Aja Mangum also caught up with MAC’s Nadine Luke, who expanded further on the show’s makeup theme — “it’s 1920s but a modern 1920s, so instead of a flapper girl, she’s a flippin’ girl.” Watch the video to see the nails and the makeup close up.

    Rag & Bone Sets the Box on FireWe’re not sure which was the bigger crisis at the Rag & Bone after-party last night at the Box: The fact that a fire alarm went off around 11p.m., prompting a visit from the FDNY, or the fact that the D.J. followed said fire scare by playing “Burning Down the House,” prompting the already jumpy Box management to stomp through the balcony, proclaiming, “That’s it! We’re clearing out the floor!”

    Tyra Thrills, Kimora Dolls Give Chills at Baby PhatThere’s nothing like bookending day one with a pair of genuine national treasures: Liza Minnelli at breakfast time, and come supper, that deeply understated legend of Lycra-blend we call Kimora Lee Simmons. Tonight’s Baby Phat show was everything we’ve come to expect from the exceedingly subtle model turned designer, right down to the feathered hot pants, visible garter belts, and getups that felt inspired by Atonement via a few head injuries and maybe a martini.

    If Kimora’s Your Boss, Spell Her Name RightSomeone misspelled Kimora Lee Simmons’s name as “Kimmora” beneath the logo for her KLS couture line last night at the Baby Phat after-party. No one noticed, so we pointed it out to Kimora when she arrived. “Where?!” she said, turning around. “I’ll be Kimmy-mora for tonight. It’s fine, it’s no big deal. It’s just an extra ‘m’ — it stands for ‘million.’” she said, explaining: “My lovely ad agency did that, and I guess it was some internal problems in the office, and I said, ‘Well, did you misspell the name when I paid your check?’”

    Celebrities Get Obscenely PhatGoing to a Baby Phat show feels a bit like going to a nightclub. The prospect of a big ol’ spectacle gets everyone to tease up their hair and put on something shiny — one woman showed up in a dress that had mesh strips that went all the way up to her butt cleavage — and stand around sipping drinks, bopping their heads to the dance music, and craning their necks to see if that really is Jeremy Piven over there, or if it’s just some dude who hates to shower. It’s such a tornado of humanity that we couldn’t even make our way to the bar, and as you know by now, that says a lot.

    Baby Phat, Meet Carolina Herrera Evidently, ‘tis the season to soldier along with the unwashed masses. Evidently, ‘tis the season to soldier along with the unwashed masses. First Lulu Guinness slummed it waiting for seat assignments at Matthew Williamson Sunday night, and then this morning before the Carolina Herrera show, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien chatted merrily with a reporter about the size of runway models while she waited her turn at registration. Less patient was The Young and the Restless’ Victoria Rowell, who jumped the queue in order to gain entrance on her own recognizance; all that hurrying was for naught, though, as she then spent the entire run-up to the show standing aimlessly in the aisles waiting to see if she could snag an unclaimed spot. Soledad, meanwhile, was rewarded with a prime front-row view. It’s good to see karma in action.

He got out in time for the Baby Phat show, only to wait around an hour for it to actually begin. And then he got in a fight with another show-goer.
