There were some pretty epic Halloween costumes from celebrities this year. Heidi Klum probably topped everyone with her “Thriller” costume. But, Beyonce was definitely up there among the best, with a series of looks paying tribute to the legendary Lil Kim.
Bey shared a number of images from this year’s Halloween looks on her website, where she recreated five of Kim’s most iconic looks… with great detail. “Hip-hop would not be the same without our original Queen Bee,” Beyonce said on her website.
Beyonce rocked a white button-up shirt with Chanel suspenders, red pants, and black shades, drawing inspiration from Kim’s cameo in Missy Elliott’s “The Rain” video. In another look, she donned Kim’s famous blue Chanel hair, which she wore in a photo shoot for Manhattan File Magazine in 2001.
Beyonce also replicated Kim’s look from Today’s Blackwoman and her 1999 Source Awards outfit.
Lil Kim was shocked, taking to social media to express how grateful she is. “I’m speechless and honored,” she wrote.
