It feels like just yesterday we were witnessing Vanessa Simmons’ transition into adulthood on MTV’s Run’s House and then evolve into a fashionista on her spinoff, Daddy’s Little Girls.
The reality star has since blossomed into a mother, business owner and fashion designer who will be showing off her new line during LA Fashion Week.
Simmons recently teamed up with Project Runway alum, Candice Cuoco, for a one-of-a-kind collection called Bad Butterfly, something HipHollywood had a chance to chat with the beauty about.
“I’m super excited to present that to the world,” VS told HH while on the red carpet for the 2017 Essence Black Women in Hollywood event.
The New York native, meanwhile, has come a long way since making colorful tennis shoes with her sister, Angela Simmons.
While the designer still has a sporty edge to her, she now likes to keep it “chic with a touch of edge.” She revealed to us exclusively, “As I’ve grown up and now I’m a mother, I try to set an example for my daughter.”
She added, “I’m usually more conservative than most.”
Veteran Hollywood Marketing Strategist & Entertainment Publicity Director, John Tucker, tells HH that Bad Butterfly will close out LAFW’s 2017 event.
