The stars came out in droves last night for Baby Phat’s Spring 2010 collection, Moroccan Kiss:


Baby Phat Spring 2010 Show Roseland Ballroom

As soon as I walked into Roseland Ballroom, I spied several celebrities peppering the front row, including the elusive Amber Rose, stylist June Ambrose, raven haired Kim Kardashian, and more:

After about half an hour, the show began with a loud blast of music, as brightly colored clothes and a bass driven soundtrack literally shook up the room:

Kimora’s Spring 2010 collection mixed the easy feel of 70’s separates with Moroccan opulence and style. Using a color palette of coral, turquoise, pink, and violet, she showcased laced blouses, draped dresses, sequined separates, and tailored outerwear all with oodles of gold jewelry and embellishments:

The line included skin clinging jewel toned dresses, colorblocked flouncy tops, floor grazing floral maxi dresses, and easy oversized white shirts , predominantly worn with gold accented sandals and oversized tote bags. Artfully combining tie dye, acid wash, and look-at-me patterns, Kimora presented a line made for a cool tween or young adult with a daring sense of their blooming sensuality:

My favorites included ruffled monokinis in navy and exotic print:

And bright sequined skirts that reflected the gold dust on the runway:

Out of all of Kimora’s collections, this one seemed the most wearable. I could see all of these hot items hanging on the racks in Macy’s, awaiting an eager tween or twenty something to scoop them up. From her new husband and baby to her increasingly chic collection, it seems everything for Kimora is on the uptick!
For the final walk, models stomped out to Michael Jackson’s PYT:

After a bit of a wait Kimora appeared with Ming, Aoki, and newborn Kenzo:


I also stopped Teyana Taylor after the event to ask her what she thought:

And chatted it up some more with Sheree:

What do you think of this season of Baby Phat?

  1. This was great coverage and fabulous shots. I agree that this collection is definitely the most wearable. I always loved Baby Phat but felt it was a little too over the top for my taste. With these, I can definitely see a lot of pieces I would wear. Kimora always does something big for her shows. Looks like this one was no exception.

  2. I like the look of this collection. I’ve never been a fan of Baby Phat and find it ironic that most of the celebrities there probably don’t wear it either.

  3. The pieces were ok; it looked very similar to the stuff she wears in her print ads or in editorials. Overall, it was the same old, same old.

  4. I luv Kimora, she is such a iconic person to me and hopefully I will have as much money she has in the bank in the future.

  5. wow @ Melissa Ford. smh.
    I really love Kimora’s selection of models for her runway shows. They always have great bodies (not too thin); I appreciate the variety of complexions & ethnictites in her shows as well.
    Surprisingly I like a some of the pieces, specifically the silver sequin skirt and the entire outfit in the black shredded leggings pic

  6. lol @ Ally! I had to call over coworkers to gander at it! She looks like a cartoon poor thing. Another surgery victim!

    I am not a fan of BP either. I am not a brand whore and hate most of the pieces are engulfed in those lil cats. lol But the show definately made me a lil more comfortable with the line. Great show and great coverage. Claire was on her job!

  7. I think this new line up is great. It’s very feminine and dainty. This isn’t for the everyday woman, this is for a princess, or Diva, or whatever the acceptable term is. This is a lineup for anyone who wants to be considered a lady.
