Lil’ Kim Commands Attention in Muscular Body-Illusion Jumpsuit, Versace Sandals & Green Hair at BET Hip Hop Awards 2022

The 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards took over The Cobb Theater in Atlanta for a pre-recorded show that aired Oct. 4. From hot performances to stand-out outfits and historic hip hop reunions, the event was a jam-packed moment for music lovers.

Lil’ Kim was among the many A-list stars to make a daring style statement on the red carpet. The hip-hop icon arrived at the annual award show in a skintight jumpsuit. The silhouette featured a screen print of a muscly woman’s contoured body throughout and had long fitted sleeves and a plunging circle cutout at the center.

To take things up a notch, the “Crush on You” rapper accessorized with dangling diamond “Lil’ Kim” earrings, transparent futuristic shades and carried a green Hermés Birkin bag. For glam, the Brooklyn native went with soft makeup, a touch of pink blush and a brown matte pout. She wore her curly green tresses in a high ponytail and rounded out the look with matching green nails.

When it came down to the shoes, the “Jump Off” artist completed her look with a pair of Versace strappy metallic sandals. The shoe style had a square outsole, thick chain strap across the toe and ankle and sat atop a stiletto heel.
