Don’t call it a comeback! Our speculations about Lil’ Kim’s appearance at The Blonds New York Fashion Week show just may be correct! Kimmy Blanco is back at it, storming stages and WERQUING red carpets. A guest of honor last night at BET’s “Rip The Runway” fashion show, Kim turned it out in a sassy-sweet mixed media peplum dress, a retro-femme silhouette toughened up by leather construction and a sheer neckline and sleeves. Touches of blue in her hoop earrings were highlighted by suede cerulean Giuseppe Zanotti bow strap sandals. The makeup job here (as in, those matted out eyebrows) has us scratching our heads a bit, but maybe Big Momma’s just on to something we’re not ready to handle yet.
Kim’s stage style was more overtly powerful and easier to move in. A sparkly black catsuit was her performance outfit of choice. With strong shoulders, a gravity-defying ponytail, and some caution tape yellow Michael Antonio heels for height, the Notorious K.I.M. spit a set of classics from “Crush On You” to “All About the Benjamins.” Queen B was dripping with gold accents from her neck to her wrist, and those racing stripe panels of sheer were muy caliente. Which outfit was your favorite?
