Halloween 2017 is long over, but one Queen pays homage to another Queen in a stylish and creative photoshoot. Beyoncé paid homage to Lil’ Kim, dressing as the Queen Bee while her husband JAY-Z dressed as The Notorious B.I.G. at a party in Los Angeles over the weekend. On Friday (Nov. 3), Queen Bey posted a glamorous collection of photos, where she models various classic outfits worn by Kimmy Blanco. “Hip-Hop would not be the same without our original Queen B, says Beyoncé, in the photo gallery she calls “Halloween 2017: Lil’ Kim Appreciation.”
Beyoncé is seen wearing looks of Lil’ Kim’s from Missy Elliott’s “The Rain” video in 1997, the unforgettable teal Chanel wig look on a 2001 cover of Manhattan File Magazine, and the Brooklyn femcee’s mink cover on 2000’s Today’s Blackwoman Magazine. Bey also recreates Kim’s 1999 Source Awards and ends things off with an all-green neon look on Puff Daddy’s “No Way Out” tour in 1997. In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Lil’ Kim expressed gratitude of the gesture that stole social media.
