Lisa Raye’s daughter Kai Morae is apparently the new face of Apple Bottoms.
The campaign is being shot by none other than celebrity photographer Derek Blanks, who performed the session at Miauhaus Studios yesterday (November 30, 2010) in Los Angeles, California.
Derek is responsible for THIS sexy Lisa Raye shoot so it’s only natural that she trust her daughter in his artistic hands.

Celebrity photographer Derek Blanks shot Nicki Minaj’s “larger than life” personality for the December/January cover of Ebony Magazine.
The cover is reminiscent of actress Tasha Smith’s shoot, where Derek recreated the “Attack of the 50 foot Woman,” but this time instead of Atlanta being the backdrop, it’s New York and the larger than life image is meant to represent Nicki “Crushing the Competition.”

I don’t think this look is permanent though… let’s just hope Kim Zolciak doesn’t miss her wig!
Lisa Wu-Hartwell was given the boot from The Real Housewives of Atlanta after she refused to “create” drama for the show but she’s still on her grind and still around Atlanta.

Lisa hosted a screening of the upcoming Disney animated 3D film “Tangled” in Atlanta last night. The movie is based on the Rapunzel fairy tale so Lisa and guests donned long blonde “Rapunzel” wigs for fun.

Actress Tasha Smith is the next celeb to be featured in celebrity photographer Derek Blank’s alter ego series.
Tasha, who’s known for her larger than life personality, uses the movie poster for the 1958 sci-fi film, “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman” for the concept with the background being the City of Atlanta.
…and in classic D. Blanks fashion, Tasha plays every role in the shoot!
Ms. Smith also covers the June 2010 issue of Sister2Sister magazine, which was also shot by Derek.
