Lil Kim Stuns in MCM, Poses Topless In New Fierce Hair
Along with the original Queen Bee’s vicious rhymes, Lil Kim is known among the hip-hop community as the ultimate fashion icon.
Many of those iconic looks can be accredited to stylist/designer Misa Hylton! Yes – even Kim’s infamous purple pasty VMA look!
Misa was recently appointed as creative director of longtime favorite hip-hop brand, MCM, and adorned her friend Lil Kim in their leather goods for a recent Essence Magazine photoshoot. Kim wrote Misa a heartfelt message on Instagram while previewing their shoot:
“@lilkimthequeenbee To my partner, my sister, my bestie and my creative director @misahylton we are like Kobe and Jordan. When we’re together it’s nothing less than magic. Thank you so much for being a part of the Lil’ Kim brand and movement for so many years. Every year we get tighter and tighter, smarter and smarter, and more and more creative.
