LL Cool J’s daughter Samaria Leah Smith shared on social media a picture that proved she is her mother’s mini version. In the photo, she is seen striking a pose in a white sweater and distressed jeans while in New York.
In looks and style, Samaria Smith shares a remarkable resemblance and fashion taste with her mother, Simone Smith, the wife of rapper LL Cool J, whose real name is James Todd Smith.
On October 9, the 25-year-old jeans entrepreneur posted on Instagram a picture of herself outside a New York store. Samaria is looking comfortable in her relaxed outfit, perfect for her walks around the city.

Like Simone, Samaria seems to believe that comfort is key. In the picture, she is dressed in an oversized white hooded sweater and covers her head with a hood to highlight her long beautiful locks.
The young fashion designer opted to wear relaxed distressed jeans which she paired with white sneakers - a fashion staple she must have learned from her mother.
Though she is a lover of street fashion, Samaria balanced her cool ensemble with a hint of femininity by completing her look with a red designer sling bag. She looked as stunning as the flowers behind her.
As Samaria sashayed down the street, many fans were mesmerized by her looks which gave off a relaxed vibe. Many Instagram followers found her off-duty look cute and cozy.
One fan wrote in the comment section that the young businesswoman was looking gorgeous in her outfit while others adored her jeans and wondered if it’s from her brand, Samaria Leah. Another fan noted:
"The prettiest ?."
Aside from Samaria sharing the same fashion taste with Simone, the two also share meaningful advocacy on cancer as they work with organizations that benefit cancer research.
It's no wonder why the doting daughter has a heart for cancer research as Simone is a cancer survivor. Samaria and her family have supported her mother throughout her battle with bone cancer in 2004.
Though her denim brand is a new player in the fashion industry, Samaria aims to help more people in times of need.
While collaborating with cancer organizations, Samaria has also dedicated her time to producing facemasks for healthcare workers on the frontline against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Aside from LL Cool J’s daughter, acclaimed fashion designer Christian Siriano also stepped up his game in creating protective gear against the deadly virus.
In August, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo awarded the 2007 "Project Runway" winner a grant worth $352,590, which allowed his company to produce protective items, including facemasks.
Siriano and his team have volunteered to offer their service since March. He said that his team became idle after their company temporarily closed down its operations.
