Fab mom-of-four hosted a night of fun, high-end fashion and friends at the grand opening of the Kimora Lee Simmons' Beverly Hills boutique. This new project has been one Kimora has been working diligently on.

We remember seeing her with her husband Tim Leissner and baby Wolfe Lee a few months ago in Beverly Hills making a stop at the store to make sure things were running smoothly.

And look who tagged along with mom....
