While the world is trying to recreate Miley Cyrus’ 2013 twerk-ready VMA look this Halloween, Miley is paying homage to one of the most iconic looks to ever grace the VMAs stage: Lil’ Kim’s 1999 outfit .
In case you don’t remember what Kim’s infamous pantsuit looked like, we’ll remind you. It was a sequined, lavender get-up that left very little to the imagination. In fact, half of the top part was missing leaving Kim’s left breast exposed, with just a perfectly placed purple pasty. The look was so provocative and enticing that Diana Ross even gave her breast a tap when they appeared on the stage together.
Leave it to Miley to recreate the look, getting every detail — including the straight wig, very ’90s pastel hue and makeup palette — right. She may have previously gotten some advice from the Queen Bee herself when they shot the video for “Twisted” together earlier this year.
Miley wore the look to a party attended by her “23” collaborator Wiz Khalifa and his wifey, Amber Rose, on Wednesday night. And on Halloween, she got serious props from the Notorious K.I.M., who tweeted, “Look at my baby @mileycyrus tonight!!! Looking GORGEOUS!!! I wish I was there to squeeze your boob.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Miley made headlines when she Instagrammed a photo of the “Pornkinzzz” she put out. What are “Pornkinzzz”? Pumpkins with naughty images carved into them. Happy Halloween!
