Nostalgic Celebrity Imitation Costumes

Miley Cyrus's Li'l Kim Costume is a Nod to the 90s

— October 31, 2013 — Pop Culture
Miley Cyrus's Lil' Kim Costume recreates the rappers infamous 1999 red carpet moment at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Cyrus donned a glittery purple one-shouldered suit, a sequinned pasty and a neon purple wig. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and Lil Kim certainly approves of Miley's tribute. In response to Miley's Happy Halloween tweet with an attached photo of the costume, Kim wrote a very encouraging tweet showing her support for the campy, nostalgic outfit.

Celebrities dressing as other celebrities is a very meta way to celebrate Halloween. I'm sure there will be a fair share of Miley costumes circulating as well.
