DIRECT LIL’ KIM REPLICA RIGHT HERE.
Honestly, these celeb Halloween costumes are putting my $2.99 CVS cat ears to shame. Because if you thought Paris Hilton‘s custom-made Miley Cyrus VMAs ensemble was dead-on, then wait till you see Miley Cyrus dressed as Lil’ Kim from the 1999 VMAs! You know, that time Kim wore a now-iconic purple pasty and never looked back!
Truth be told, we weren’t convinced that anything Miley did this year could top last year’s Nicki Minaj costume. Shows what we know! We should never have underestimated the “Wrecking Ball” singer, because Miley’s Lil’ Kim throwback situation may just change the Halloween costume game forever.
In fact, Twitter has all but exploded last night with celeb reactions to Miley’s Lil’ Kim ensemble. But instead of coming up with more ways to be perma-floored, we’ll just let these tweets to the talking.
The one and only Queen Bee, AKA Lil’ Kim herself was fully flattered by Miley’s costume. Girl even wished she could squeeze Miley’s boob à la Diana Ross! The queen herself has spoken!

Some were stopped dead in their tracks by Miley’s total and utter beauty:

Others took a more practical approach, correlating Miley’s ensemble current Halloween costume disasters:
Miley Cyrus dressing up as Lil Kim but not doing blackface is an inspiring vision of hope.

Closing thoughts? If we wanna get all #meta on you, one might say that Miley’s costume choice was strategic. As in, wearing VMA history after she just MADE VMA HISTORY. AAAAH!!! #BrainFreeze
