Aoki Lee Simmons is clearly living her best Gen Z life this year!
The 17-year-old, along with her 19-year-old sister Ming, are claiming their rightful thrones at her mother’s revived fashion company Baby Phat.
“Selling Baby Phat direct-to-consumer through our website plays a big part in the sustainability conversation,” Aoki recently told Teen Vogue, adding, “It cuts out a lot of inventory issues and waste created from traditional retail.”
You better werk Ms. Business Woman!
In addition to all this corporate work, she’s clearly living her best life at Harvard! It appears that the college freshman has also found her sista’ squad at the Ivy League university.
In a series of pictures she posted earlier this week, the daughter of Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee is all smiles with that Harvard #BlackExcellence, all dressed in white and looking fabulous!
As we previously reported, the then 16-year-old was in tears when she found out that she had been accepted into the prestigious university in March.
In the video, Aoki is visibly emotional, shaken by her good news, all while her mama is yelling, “Yay!!! You wanna go there? Are you sure? Yay!!!
“I’m only 16 and I’m going to Harvard baby! Insert emotional crying face,” she captioned in her post.
Adding, “@kimoraleesimmons “thank god you got in on your own honey cause you can’t row” thank you so much to every single person who helped me along the way. I am excited and honored and so so grateful. #harvard2023.”
You got this Aoki! Have a wonderful semester. Tell Malia Obama, we said hi!

I keep thinking about why I’m so surprised that Felicity Huffman and William H Macy are involved in this? Like... they just seem like such down to earth, character actor, “doing it for the craft” types, that I forgot they’re just rich people who want rich people shit.— Tracie Hunte (@TracieHunte) March 12, 2019

Live footage of when Abigail Fisher finds out it wasn't qualified Black people via affirmative action who took her spot -- but wealthy white people like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin who used cronyism, capitalism, and nepotism instead. #StayMadAbby pic.twitter.com/Klbdkbcwm7— Ernest Owens (@MrErnestOwens) March 12, 2019

This story pisses me off. But in five years, I know some white male screenwriter will write this story, make it snarky and exaggerated like Vice or I, Tonya or Argo, make it to the Black List, and get nominated for 12 Oscars for his sanitized version of this bullshit. Watch. https://t.co/8iKxrUdK8R— Kellee Nicole Terrell (@kelleent) March 12, 2019

AND a bunch of black and brown kids in charter schools until 7pm, walking in straight lines, doing math drills and being told they just need "grit" to get into college https://t.co/A3HHFQr6ur— Jenée (@jdesmondharris) March 12, 2019

I want the people who were up in arms about affirmative action in college admittance to keep that same energy for rich people who pay to get their kids into Ivy League schools.— Jenét Where are the girls and babies? Morrow (@JenetAllDay) March 12, 2019
These are the people who are ACTUALLY stealing your kid's spot. https://t.co/L6qYvpNKcT

The saddest funniest thing about this college bribery scandal? These kids went to the best schools, had the best resources, and they couldn't compete with kids who had nothing. Their parents blame affirmative action instead of the fact that little Jackalope McQueasy is lazy.— Openly Black Mikki Kendall (@Karnythia) March 12, 2019

Lori Loughlin spent over $500,000 trying to get her daughters into USC, my alma mater. SC is 5% Black yet folk act like we were all Affirmative Action admits. Meanwhile we earned our spots (and have the student loans to prove it), and these folk buying tests and grades. Smh— Britni Danielle (@BritniDWrites) March 12, 2019

Rich people using their wealth to ensure (steal) spots at prestigious colleges for their mediocre children is an American pastime.— X (@XLNB) March 12, 2019
You know what else is tradition? Obscuring this fact by blaming black people & affirmative action for “snatching away” opportunities.

Wealthy white people committing fraud to pay their kids’ way into Ivy League schools instead of just donating to a building the way old-fashioned wealthy white people pay their kids’ way into Ivy League schools is what makes this news https://t.co/5TS22X2QN3— Ivie Ani (@ivieani) March 12, 2019

Can we please start giving Rich White kids the same side eye that Black & Brown kids receive when they say they attended an Ivy League school?! You know when it’s assumed that minority students took “someone” else’s spot who was “more qualified”! #DownWithTheDoubleStandard— bevysmith (@bevysmith) March 12, 2019

I am so shocked that rich white people were caught finessing their way into Ivy League institutions. Gee willickers, Batman. I thought they all got in off of merit.— Charles Preston (@_CharlesPreston) March 12, 2019
