“This is definitely catered to a woman who has a little spending power,”

We know Kimora for bringing urban chic BabyPhat to life, but now designer Kimora Lee Simmons has a new passion for fashion thats all “grown up”. Simmons recently launched her newest ready to wear luxury brand KLS Kimora Lee Simmons, a more business woman fashion line that can truly go from office to cocktail without missing a beat.

KLS is a line dedicated to the clean, sophisticated and tailored woman, but may be out of reach for many (like me on a blogger budget), with prices ranging from $600 to $3500. The pre-fall 2015 collection debuted in December, and is only available for purchase through the website KLS.COM for now until her KLS boutique opens later this spring in Beverly Hills. Like many luxury brands, the luxury is felt in the fabrics like cashmere, leather, double-layered silks mixed with mesh, ponte and jacquards. KLS offers a bit of edge and sex appeal with body hugging silhouettes and bits of skin showing through slits or mesh.

“This is definitely catered to a woman who has a little spending power,” she says. “It’s very classic and it’s my take on what would be basic. Not exactly basic, but updated and upgraded basic.”

The KLS 30 piece collection really is a stunning one for her luxury debut, and i’m sure that it will have the success she strives to have. The key to success in my opinion behind celebrity fashion brands lies in the design, functionality and aesthetics not just a famous name.

“I’m not the same woman now. KLS isn’t catering to a teenage audience or a young party girl. I’m a serious businesswoman.

South Florida Students will now have the opportunity to view SELMA FOR FREE!
In an unprecedented effort led by a team of African-American business leaders in New York, organizations across the U.S. coordinated a massive national campaign to find African-American business leaders to underwrite free admission to the Academy Award-nominated film “SELMA” for students around the country.

The new cities added are the efforts inspired by the overwhelming success of the program in New York City, in which 27 African-American business leaders created a fund for 27,000 of the city’s 7th, 8th and 9th grade students to see the film for free. That effort sold out in the very first weekend.

Students can share their images and response to the film using #SelmaForStudents.

Due to the generous contributions by so many of the country’s most prominent African-American business leaders, more than 275,000 middle and high school students will experience the critically acclaimed film for free at participating theaters while supplies last.

The following South Florida theaters below will be offering the film to 7th, 8th and 9th graders, students can show their student ID or report card at the box office of any participating theater in these cities, to receive their free tickets.*

“THE WEDDING RINGER” #REVIEW: A Bromance chock full of inappropriate comedy

The Wedding Ringer opens in theaters today, parents be forewarned this is not a film for youth under 16. TWR is not a family friendly film, I took my 13 year old son to the screening and was cringing throughout. This bromance is filled with rude and raunchy and inappropriate humor. Doug (Josh Gad voice of Frozen’s Olaf) is the lucrative business man, yet friendless groom to be who hires Jimmy (Kevin Hart) a professional best man for hire, to make him look good at his wedding to fiancée, Gretchen (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting).

Ladies don’t be fooled by the use of ‘wedding’ in the title and expect this “wedding” film to be anything like past films “The Wedding Planner” or “The Wedding Singer”, this film is all misogynistic humor.There are a very few brief moments in the film that are funny and better than I expected like the dance scene pictured above,at a reception. But for the most part ‘Ringer’ is chock full of inappropriate comedy from granny (Cloris Leachman) set on fire to using an animal for sexual pleasure called a ‘Fletcher’.

Rated R | For Crude and Sexual Content, Brief Graphic Nudity, Language Throughout and Some Drug Use

The Wedding Ringer opens 1/16. Sign up for a Fandango FanAlert to find out when tickets are available near you!
