GROWING UP! Aoki Lee Simmons Does Prom & Graduates High School Before She Heads To Harvard

​ ​ ​ ​

Aoki Lee Simmons is growing up! She just went to prom and graduated high school. Now, she's gearing up for Hardvard. More inside...

From the runway as a baby to trekking across the graduation stage! And then, Harvard!

We've literally watched Aoki Lee Simmons - daughter of music mogul Russell Simmons and fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons - grow up right before our eyes. As a toddler to a teen, she hit the runway for her mom's Baby Phat shows, she starred in her mom's reality show "Life In The Fab Lane," and we learned she's not taking ish from ANYONE after she publicly called out one of her white classmates for calling her the N-word.

The 16-year-old outspoken activist has bloomed into a gorgeous, intelligent young lady and she's ready to take over the world.

The entire family came out to celebrate Aoki graduating from Le Lycée Français high school in LA as the Salutatorian. Her pops believes she should have been named Valedictorian, especially since she copped the most awards in her class:

Over the years, Aoki has proven to be a total leader in her school, launching several clubs, playing on the volleyball team as co-captain, and writing for the school's newspaper.

And at just 16-years-old, she's one of the school's youngest to ever graduate. Nice!

Here's what she has accomplished thus far:

We noticed in the school's program, they listed her as Aoki Lee Simmons - Leissner, adding her step-dad's name to the end.

Aoki shared a family flick of everyone who came out to celebrate with her, including her mother Kimora Lee Simmons, dad Russell Simmons, step-dad Tim Leissner, her sister Ming Lee, her brothers Kenzo Lee Hounsou & Wolfe Lee Leissner, and her "cousins" D'Lila & Jessie Combs. She also poked fun at her parents' relationship:

Daddy-daughter trip to Bali will be fun.

Aoki will head to Harvard this fall.

Before graduation....


Aoki went off to her senior prom with her date Anthony.

Slaying a black gown for the big night, she joked about taking 30 minutes to attach her date's boutonniere on his blazer. Ha! The pre-prom struggle.
