I’ve loved Vanessa Simmons since I watched her on Run’s House 10 years ago. From reality star she quickly turned into the Jill-of-all-trades by designing for the shoe brand Pastry with her sister and appearing on both the big and small screen as an actress and TV host.
Her latest venture is a lingerie line in collaboration with the brand Naked Princess. And let me just say, it.is.everything!
Safe to say she’s a #LadyBoss.
I headed to the Naked Princess store in West Hollywood for a glam night out equipped with music (DJ Ivy provided the tunes), wine sponsored by Christina Milian’s Viva Diva Wines (which is so good it tastes like juice) and obviously some amazing lingerie!
Besides tripping and almost eating sh*t on the red carpet (Sevyn Streeter to the rescue!), the night was perfect. Picture perfect, actually.
It was so fun getting a chance to chat with Vanessa (who has read Give Me Mora , by the way! You can actually see my jaw dropping in one of the pics below when I found out) about her new line. I also got a chance to chat it up with Christina about our love for a bold colored lip with any outfit. How fly did she look rocking her crop top, jeans and pink lips?! And it was so nice to finally meet Sevyn! I have been following her for quite some time now and she is the sweetest (and prefers hugs over handshakes). All three ladies made me feel like I had known them for years and were so welcoming. It’s so refreshing to see so many power women supporting each other. Loves it.
