Kimora Lee: Hit or Miss?
Kimora Lee Simmons seems to be catching a lot of flak for choosing this colorful Kevan Hall Couture gown to wear to the Costume Institute Gala but aside from the fit (which seems a bit too restricting up top) I don't think it's that bad. After all the theme of this year's gala was "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy." It this color saturated composition doesn't scream comic book panels then I don't know what does. Most of the attendees played it safe and dull. At least someone was able to go out on a limb with her gown. I'm probably letting her off too easy though, I am a fan of Detroit born Mr. Hall who seems to be one of the only designer out there who gets "safari chic" right, referencing the influence of African tribes like the Dinka and Maasai and Zulu without looking like a trend vampire.
