Lil Kim Explains How Iconic 1999 VMAs Look Was Inspired My Missy Elliott Joke Posted By Robo on January 20, 2021 Missy teased Kim about her constant nip slips and the rappers stylist, Misa Hylton, used it as inspiration. The colorful looks of Lil Kimhave gone down in Hip Hop history, but not many are as iconic as her lavender, breast-revealing MTV VMA look back in 1999 The New York rapper stole the show when she walked the red carpet and graced the stage in an outfit that bared one breast that only featured a matching nipple covering, and in a recent interview withPEOPLE, Kim revealed that it was inspired by a tease from her friend Missy Elliott Brenda Chase / Stringer / Getty Images Back in the day, Lil Kim was apparently known for her regular nip slips. My nipples used to pop out so much on their own, she said with a laugh. They said something in a movie and made it look like it was planned it was never planned The girls used to laugh at me and Missy said, Girl, your nipples pop out so much. One day, you need to just come outside with one nipple out.' It was a joke, but Kims stylist at the time, Diddy s ex and mother of his son Justin, Misa Hylton, thought it was a good idea for a look. On the day of the VMAs, Kim wasnt supposed to wear a matching lavender wig, eitherit was a mistake by the hairstylist that they decided to roll with at the last minute. She was so stressed because we were literally 45 or 30 minutes away from showtime, Lil Kim added. She was like, Misa, oh my God. I have to redo the hair, the whole wig is lavender. Misa was like, Did you say lavender? Kims outfit is lavender. Its perfect! And Im always with the sh*t I was like, Lets do it! Put it on me. Im always excited to see what Ill look like in different colors. Check out more of Kims iconic look below. Scott Gries / Staff / Getty Images Scott Gries / Staff / Getty Images [
