Drama queen Kimora Lee Simmons did not disappoint at her Friday night fashion bash. It started one full hour late, thanks in part to a scuffle about seating by 50 Cent and his entourage, presumably fed up with authority of any sort after the rapper's traffic stop earlier in the day, which resulted in him being taken to a police station and cited for a lane-change violation and for having an expired license and no registration.

Hello Kitty is all grown up. The docile little creature with red bow and yellow button nose turns 35 today. And just look at her now! At her inception in the 1970s, few could have known that the cute cartoon would become a global phenom complete with a theme park, TV series and restaurant featuring an image of her sweet whiskered face baked into bread. Indeed, Ms. Kitty has come a long way from her Japanese homeland. Christian Dior, Cynthia Rowley, Betsey Johnson and Kimora Lee Simmons have all hopped on the Hello Kitty pop icon bandwagon over the years, whisking the kitten around the world in high style.

Kimora LEE SIMMONS -- model, fashion designer and Lagerfeld muse -- has a house in L.A. and a house outside New York. She has two daughters with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons.

What's the current state of back-and-forth with fashion and culture between New York and L.A.? I think it goes hand in hand.
