It was a father-daughter event at the BookBindery as Aoki Simmons accompanied her dad, Russell Simmons, to the 2014 Baby2Baby Gala in Culver City this past Saturday (November 8). The youngest daughter of the entrepreneur held his hand and stood behind him as photographers took pictures. Russell was the proud dad whose bow-tie matched his daughter’s sparkling dress. How cute!
The BookBindery and Brick Buildings are the heart and soul of Culver City. The location houses some of the greatest artistry the city has to offer while inviting other creatively inclined residents from surrounding cities to showcase their talent. This year’s Baby2Baby Gala featured great artistry from up-and-coming innovators who may soon be known around the world.
Russell is no stranger to galas as he has hosted a number of art showings in California and on the East Coast. The entrepreneur has also used his influence as a savvy businessman to promote youth who are still developing their gifts.
Russell has two kids with ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons.
