Lil Kim whipped out the white wiggery and white make up (we think) in a new photoshoot for the VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
We’re days away before the premiere of VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens” show. And before the show airs live, the female Hip Hop pioneers got dressed up for a promo photoshoot.
After a six-year hiatus, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim and Salt-N-Pepa will be honored at this year’s all female show to celebrate their rise to the top of a male-dominated genre.
Brooklyn raptress Lil Kim has us scratching our heads with her new promo shot. The “Crush On You” rapper got made up in white make up and a winter white wig for the shoot seemingly channeling X-Men character Storm. Interestingly, no one else in the shoot was in costume. So…
She flossed her curves in a black lace corset paired with black lace stockings. While we’re feeling Kimmy’s ensemble for the shoot, we can’t say we’re feeling whatever the hell is going on here. Like, why is this photo happening? WHAT is happening here? Never before have we wanted this badly for someone to go buy some Fashion Fair and Iman Cosmetics and go to town on that face.
Meanwhile, Queen, Missy and Salt-N-Pepa slayed their pics for the promo shoot:
VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens” airs Monday July 11th at 9/8c with performances by Common, Pharrell, Timbaland, Naughty by Nature and Da Brat.
