It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Miley Cyrus would opt to show some skin on Halloween! The 20-year-old dressed up on Wednesday night as another artist who’s never been afraid to go for the shock-factor — Lil’ Kim. Specifically, Miley channelled the rapper’s iconic, yet controversial, 1999 MTV Video Music Awards ensemble.
From the purple wig, to the purple, sequined jumpsuit, and most importantly, the nipple pasty that exposes most of her breast, the “Wrecking Ball” singer got the look down to a T as she celebrated the evening at Beacher’s Madhouse in L.A. She shared photos of the spot-on costume on her social media accounts.
In an interview from the summer, Miley named Lil’ Kim as her No. 3 favorite female musician, falling only behind Joan Jett and her godmother, Dolly Parton. “In my past life, I feel like that was me,” she said of the rapper. “I feel like Lil’ Kim is who I am on the inside. She makes me happy, I just love her. And I can’t help that I love her.”
