Aoki Lee Simmons is a 21-year-old model on the rise, celebrating
her first magazine cover with the September 2023 issue of Teen Vogue, and first global
campaign as the face of the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2023 collection. Born into
the fashion and entertainment industry as the youngest daughter of Kimora Lee
and Russell Simmons, her upbringing was chronicled on the reality TV show
"Life in the Fab Lane." As a toddler Simmons took her first steps
on the runway for her mother's fashion brand, Baby Phat.
Whether engaging in discussions on youth voting alongside CNN's
Van Jones, working in UN refugee camps during the Syrian crisis, or
participating in disaster relief efforts in hurricane-stricken Texas, Simmons harnesses public attention for meaningful causes, on her own terms. A
Harvard graduate at age 20, she has been featured in publications like Vogue, Bustle, Teen Vogue,
Huffington Post, The Cut, Essence, and Complex,
and has modeled with brands including Tommy Hilfiger, Pyer Moss, Lacoste, Tory
Burch, Kate Spade, and Glossier.
