It isn’t easy being the child of a model. And if that wasn’t enough, imagine how much harder it becomes when, in addition to that, you end up being the sister of one. For Aoki Lee Simmons, daughter of Kimora, it was so much, particularly in this social media age filled with negativity, that the 15-year-old revealed that she, for a while, stopped sharing images of her face online. She admitted that she started to feel insecure about her looks, and thought that she may not be “as pretty” as big sister Ming based on what others were saying about her.
“Ok guys so! I’m [sic] you’ve noticed I’ve been posting a lot more this summer! I used to be very picky about pictures and not really show my face, and would often not post pictures of cool events or important moments because I didn’t like my smile or I was standing next to my beautiful sister,” she wrote. “it’s easy to get insecure when your older sister and mom are models and I’ve dealt with a lot of negativity on Instagram, comments saying I’m not as pretty as my big sister (who is the best by the way).”
Thankfully, she had a change of heart and stopped worrying so much about what other people thought and more about just living her life.
“We all want to look nice in our photos but I’ve tried to let all of that go and just post pictures were [sic] I look happy or was actually having a good time. I try not to worry who I’m standing next to and just share good moments with you guys.”
So sis will be serving all the face on Instagram this summer, and hopefully, from here on out. And she’s already started. Hit the flip to see more images of Aoki living her best life and being the beautiful young woman she is.
