Kimora’s house — as you would expect — was grand, opulent, and fabulous.
As she mentions in her Closet Confession, the closet we shot was just a “satellite”, one of two she showed us in her LA home, with the “mothership” in her house in New Jersey. From the peek we got though, it’s clear she’s an incredible achiever. We got the impression she designed every last detail of the house, apparently a total gut job. And when asked, she sounded like she’d gone to the quarry herself to pick up the marble in her bathroom.
She was the same way with her closet. She knows every single single solitary item folded and hanging in her “satellite” and can tell you exactly when and where she wore it. Yet, she’s completely down to earth about her one of a kind Manolos, the endless Birkin bags, and the rest that her adorable and lucky little girls will no doubt inherit.
And speaking of, on the day we shot at Kimora’s house, even with her daughters and nannies running around, all eyes were on the most beautiful man alive–her husband Djimon Hounsou. A glimpse of him was worth the price of admission.
But back to Kimora, she was a total pro. After a long day of shooting, she took the time to call each of us on the production team to thank us for the experience. Pretty fabulous, huh? – as told by #monicaBF More…

After years of tolerating my shopping habits, my closet finally had its moment.One overcast morning in March, Bluefly sent a camera crew to survey and document my past purchases. In my closet, we found vintage, impulse purchases from H&M and Forever21, investments pieces like a silk black Dolce ruffle-trim coat and Marc Jacobs blouse, tons of memories embodied as scarves – which apparently end up being souvenir purchases because they came from Hawaii (where I grew up), Paris, Croatia, D.C., even North Carolina (where my husband is from) – sequins, animal prints, too many pairs of jeans, and lots and lots of shoes!The shoes of course were my favorite part as they have always been my closet’s first love. I still remember my first pair of Manolos – if you’ve seen the video, you know that’s where it all started – which were from Saks. I bought them a few days after graduating from college and they were perfect, black stiletto booties. They had a buckle accent at the ankle and I loved them until the day one of the perfect stilettos snapped.It was fun playing dress-up for a morning and sharing my closet, but what I enjoyed most was reliving the excitement and joy of each purchase. Perhaps sharing my obsession with Kate Moss was a little much, but behind every fashion-lover is a style icon right??More…>Discover & Shop: Ethnic Print Spring Dresses>Check out Nicky Hilton’s Shoe Collection!>Show Us Your Closet–You Could Win $500!!
