LL Cool J's Wife Simone I. Smith Debuts Her Jewelry Collection With Nicole Ari Parker, Kelly Rowland, Kim Porter, & More

Yesterday, Simone I. Smith, the wife of LL Cool J, hosted a trunk show at Bloomingdale's in Century City, CA.  I wonder if she's setting the stage for a "Real Rap Wives" show.  See pics of Nicole Ari Parker, Regina King, Kelly Rowland and more at the show.

 

Simone I. Smith is stepping out of her husband's shadow and launching her own line of jewelry which she debuted last night at Bloomingdale's in Cali.

Simone and her childhood sweetheart, LL, posed on the carpet.

Nicole Ari Parker looked fabulous in her white shorts, tee, and blazer.

Kelly Rowland also came out to participate int he launch.


 

Regina King came out to check out the collection in a cute orange summer dress.

Mr. Mahogany himself, Billy Dee Williams was there.

 

The line consists of gold and silver oversized hoops, cuffs, and necklaces.  As a cancer survivor, Simone chose to donate a portion of the line's proceeds towards the American Cancer Society.

And Moet & Chandon was flowing throughout the room.

LL Cool J chatted with actor Flex Alexander who brought out his wife, singer Shanice.  Loves these two.

TV personality Shaun Robinson was there too.

Kelly and Nicole checked out the collection and tried on everthing. 

And Kelly bumped into Kim Porter and Angela Bassett.

MC Lyte was the celebrity DJ for the event.  Fab times indeed.  Congrats to Simone on her new venture!

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

congratulations to Mrs. Smith

congratulations to Mrs. Smith 1. for being a cancer survivor 2. being down to earth and 3 being married to one of the hottest man out there. 4. for not letting all of these jealous haters bring her down. She goes home to him not you. She had his babies not you and he pays her bills not yours. He wanted an around the way girl and got her and at least she's a fellow African American woman. Stop knocking her for being herself. The green eyed monster look is not becoming. Good jewelry that will last will cost you some change.

People really need to get their facts right before they talk, or type...Her treatment required an invasive surgery that altered the appearance of her lollipop tattoo. "It literally looks like someone took a bite out of it, said simone....im happy for her.

It must be good to be a celebrity's wife. It helps to open a few doors and opportunities that a normal person might not get. The collection of jewellery should help earn some donations for the American Cancer Society as well, and that is definitely a worthy cause.

she wears a wig because she had cancer? People with cancer typically lose their hair. She probably wants to fit in like everyone else. I met her today and she is the sweetest little women. Her line of lolipops was inspired by the shape of her tumor. When the surgeon pulled it out it was shaped like a lolipop.

I agree with you, I meet her

I agree with you, I meet her too and she is very nice. I happen to think that she is really pretty and she was dressed fine. So to all the haters out there get a life...BTW the price point is very fair for the quality of the product. I got nice hoops for just $130.00. Not bad.

I went to the website and it's very clean and tasteful....she has cute cute earrings...Maybe Simone don't have a Diva attitude.... I think you guys are over reacting...it's a Trunk Show. Simone and LL still holding it down....you know how long they been together? since late 80's I'm not sure how long they have been married....but it worth recognizing.

SMH I thought LL sent his kids for lessons on manners? what happened? And yes everything her earrings are way to much money even for us "around the way girls"

yes but she should still

yes but she should still dress up up the part a little. whats up with the shoes? I found out shes only donating 10 percent of one of the necklaces to the american cancer society. She also went promoting her jewelry at the Revlon cancer walk. That was so trashy. If you are going to the walk go to walk not promote your jewels. yes you had cancer and thank god u are ok now. but girl it not like u are donating all ur profits. its one necklace 10 percent the rest goes to ur pocket! focus on ur kids i saw pictures of ur son online smoking pot and drinking like a fish girl. get it together.

After seeing her style on red carpets for years, why in the world would I want to buy anything Simone makes? When did marrying or dating a rapper or a rich man or a NBA player become a sure shot to fame? SMH at all of this mess..

It is obvious that Regina King hits the gym but she needs to ease up because she looks hard - not soft and feminine. Yes, working out is necessary for everyone in order to stay healthy but don't over do it.
