  /  11.03.2017

Queen Bey salutes the Queen Bee. This Halloween, Beyoncé decided to pay tribute to Lil’ Kim by replicating five iconic looks from the Hard Core MC’s career.

Bey uploaded a series of images to her website, showing off the detailed process and the inspiration behind each outfit. “Hip-hop would not be the same without our original Queen Bee,” reads a statement on the site.

Up first, Bey rocked a white button-up shirt with Chanel suspenders, red pants, and black shades to look like Kim in Missy Elliott’s “The Rain” video. She went to Kelly Rowland’s Halloween party with her husband JAY-Z, who dressed up like his late friend, The Notorious B.I.G.

But that wasn’t all. Bey also replicated Kim’s famous blue Chanel hair, which the Junior M.A.F.I.A. rapper wore in a photo shoot for Manhattan File Magazine in 2001. ‘Yoncé went all out, wearing the exact same jewelry and blue contacts to complete the look. She even kept the blue contacts on for her next Lil’ Kim-inspired look. Taking a page out of the Queen Bee’s photo shoot for Today’s Blackwoman, ‘Yoncé wore a blue fur coat over turquoise lingerie.

The LEMONADE star didn’t stop there. She also wore a nude bodysuit with strategically-placed fur, remaking Kim’s 1999 Source Awards outfit. Plus, she rocked a neon green fur jacket over fishnets and a matching lime green bra and panties set, which Kim wore on the “No Way Out Tour” in 1997.

The Queen Bee was more than flattered by Bey’s homage. “@Beyonce the resemblance is crazy!!” gushed Kim. “Match made in heaven 👯 Every single detail is on point! I love you to pieces Bey.”
