It feels like just yesterday we were witnessing Vanessa Simmons’ transition into adulthood on MTV’s Run’s House and then evolve into a fashionista on her spinoff, Daddy’s Little Girls. 

The reality star has since blossomed into a mother, business owner and fashion designer who will be showing off her new line during LA Fashion Week.

Simmons recently teamed up with Project Runway alum, Candice Cuoco, for a one-of-a-kind collection called Bad Butterfly, something HipHollywood had a chance to chat with the beauty about.

“I’m super excited to present that to the world,” VS told HH while on the red carpet for the 2017 Essence Black Women in Hollywood event.

The New York native, meanwhile, has come a long way since making colorful tennis shoes with her sister, Angela Simmons.

While the designer still has a sporty edge to her, she now likes to keep it “chic with a touch of edge.” She revealed to us exclusively, “As I’ve grown up and now I’m a mother, I try to set an example for my daughter.”

She added, “I’m usually more conservative than most.”

Veteran Hollywood Marketing Strategist & Entertainment Publicity Director, John Tucker, tells HH that Bad Butterfly will close out LAFW’s 2017 event.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
