  1. Congrats Kimora! But name dropping makes you seem jealous or bitter. So what if there weren’t any Beyonce’ before you? It would have been a better look if those celebrities named you as one of their fashion inspirations. There’s always going to be someone who starts a trend.

  2. Hmmm Kimora you sound very egocentric. What does it matter if you indeed were the fashion forerunner for a lot of stars? I don’t think tooting your own horn makes it look noble!

  3. Kimora you and I share a Blasian connection and I’ve been a huge fan of yours for years. I’m glad you’re back on TV.
