Today’s celebrity photo roundup is very random. Just pics of my homegirl, Florissant, Mo.’s own, not-black-black-person Kimora Lee Simmons at a party thrown for her and former Vibe Magazine editor-in-chief Emil Wilbekin by Giant Magazine.
Also featured are pictures from the Essence Music Festival featuring Malcolm Jamal Warner, performing, with his band, Faith Evans in some of the World’s Ugliest Clothes, Anthony Hamilton and, of all people, “media personality” Sway.
But first, Kimora and all her expensive jewelry, camera-hogging, pretending-to-eat-a-cupcake glory.
First off. I’m always a little concerned when people try to do the “sexy face” on camera. It’s not that Kiki isn’t sexy. It’s just … no. The squint. The sloppily open mouth. The fact that she did it half assed when she is/was a professional fashion model. She knows how to give good face. What the hell, Kiki? This is all kinds of wrong. Plus, in real life, she would just inhale that cupcake, but since she poured herself into the tightest little black dress she could find she can’t risk it.
WireImage is consistently inadequate in their descriptions of photos. This pic was labeled as Simmons and “family.” Who? Who are these family members? Cousins? Half-siblings? Full siblings? Please explain! When you’re a not-black-black-person, who’s black, Korean and Japanese anyone could be your family.
Kimora always knows where the camera is … even for a “spontaneous” hug with fellow party honoree Emil Wilbekin.
I swear. When I look at the photos I can hear the loudness of Kimora’s laugh. Because when you’re already a six-foot-tall Glamazon you really need a voice that can be heard from several blocks away.
While Kimora was holding in her stomach for cute party pics, Malcolm Jamal Warner, aka “Theo Huxtable,” was throwing down for Essence Magazine. I didn’t even know he could blow.
The first of “Faith Evans What the Hell Are You Wearing?” Black leather jacket and black thigh high boots with a flimsy, multi-colored baby doll dress. Girl … stop. It’s one-part Strawberry Shortcake and one-part pirate themed stripper.

I don’t care if Sway and MJW stand next to it and point. I’m still not drinking Coke Zero.
And Sway’s got on an Andy Warhol-esque Obama T-shirt.
And now for part two … more pirate boots, skinny jeans and a Led Zeppelin T-shirt. I won’t ask her to name a Zeppelin song (I’m all about “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You.”) as a lot of people wear rock n’ roll band shirts just because they look neat. But really, girl? What are you wearing? And that purse is so big she could kill Theo and smuggle h
is body out in it. I’m not saying pirate boots with the skinny jeans are a bad thing. On some women they look absolutely amazing. But they make Faith look like she’s gotta a lil’ Captain in her.
