Kimora Lee and Russell Simmons' daughter Ming Lee Simmons has been taking the modeling industry by storm, and her recent Instagram photo in a black see-through swimsuit proves just why. 


Now that summer is fast approaching, models have been flaunting their beach bodies, and donning their most beautiful swimsuits. Ming Lee Simmons is no exception, as the young beauty confidentally showed off some skin while lounging on a pool chair. 

Donning a plunging black swimsuit with sheer arm sleeves, the brunette beauty smiled with her eyes closed, showing off her gorgeous physique and natural face, covered just with a hint of red lipstick.

Now that mother-daughter modeling duos are all the rave such as the Hadids, and Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber, people have slightly forgotten about the golden era of Kimora Lee Simmons' Baby Phat and Baby Phat Girlz lines, featuring Ming Lee Simmons and her younger sister Aoki Lee. 

The trio grew up on the catwalk, strutting their stuff just soon after they could even start walking. 


W Magazine spoke to Ming about how she feels being a model, and she shared:

"I grew up on the runway, walking with my mom and sister at the end of every Baby Phat show during fashion week in New York. I’ve been in ads with my mom and sister since I was 2 years old. I’m only now realizing how uncommon that is and I’m deeply appreciative of those experiences."

Now that Ming is 18 years old, the eldest daughter of Kimora and ex-husband Russell is balancing AP classes with runway walks. Kimora confessed to be quite the stage mom, saying she rarely lets her daughter go to castings without her. 

"We go to castings together, which I think is okay, but it’s got to be weird if your mom is me. Maybe it helps, maybe it hurts, we don’t know"


However, while she does love modeling, Ming is focused on heading to college as she is set to major in pre-law. The eldest Lee-Simmons also plans on designing and owning a company, just like her mom. 

""I definitely want to try designing, because I think that I might be good at it. I take after my parents, so the ideal modeling job is for a brand or business that you own. If I was going to make my own label I would always start with my mom first. I think she’s really developed and changed her style, and every time she changes she inspires the world in a different way."

Ming Lee Simmons was born to Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons in January 21, 2000. She also has a sister named Aoki Lee Simmons born in 2002.
