When it comes to famous Hollywood sisters, the Simmons girls aren’t the typical troubled young socialites. Instead, Vanessa and Angela Simmons are entrepreneurs, and they continue to make their father Rev. Run proud with their ambitions. Vanessa and Angela were able to create a sneaker empire with their Pastry shoe line, and now the sisters are planning to achieve success in their own solo projects. Angela confirmed recently that she is launching her very own fashion line. The line, entitled “Angela By Angela Simmons,” is a dream Angela says she’s had for a very long time. On her “I Am Angela” website, she writes:

“I’m so excited to share the first video for my Angela by Angela Simmons collection. I’ve always wanted to create a fashion line and it’s finally happening.”


Angela also dropped a teaser video for the line:


Angela spoke a little more about her line and tells Russell Simmons’ website Global Grind:

“It is stuff you can wear for a long time. think it is important to create fashion that is really fashionable, yet still affordable. I feel like this industry is such a fast moving place in the fashion world, and it is important to stay up with the trends and be able to still afford it, to wear it, but let it still be fashionable at the same time. That is one of my things with my line; it is feminine, it is chic, yet it is still dressed down and comfortable. It is something you can wear from day to night.”


Angela’s big sis Vanessa is always making some power moves independently, as it was confirmed recently that she’s landed her first leading movie role. Filmmaker Dominga Martin confirmed Vanessa as the lead actress in her upcoming film My First Loves. In an interview with BlackFilm, Martin says:

“I believe she is this generation’s Diahann Caroll or Dorothy Dandridge. She has range; she’s classy, FRESH and has a quiet strength. She is the image of the character I created in my head. I was searching for someone fresh faced and untainted and Vanessa Simmons is everything I was looking for. She’s got next! I can’t wait to see her blossom and bring this role to life.”


Congrats to Vanessa and Angela on their new projects.

    I have always loved these two. They are proof that kids born rich can still be great in their own right. Rooting for them always.

    She said Vanessa is going to be this generation’s Dorothy Dandridge? Woah, now let’s not put the cart before the horse. Let’s see what she’s working with before we give out those kind of titles.

    Good for them. They are creating their own empires and not living off of their dad. That’s dope of them.
