Lil’ Kim turned out to the 2021 BET Awards to perform a tribute to Queen Latifah, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award for her accomplishments in music and film. Kim took the stage to perform “U.N.I.T.Y,” a Latifah classic, in an all-white Prada ensemble.
The look was a cross between something you would wear on a ski slope and something you would wear to one of Diddy’s white parties in the early aughts. She wore a crisscross halter neck top with a matching white miniskirt (with a little pouch built in at the front), a floor-length jacket, and chunky hiking boots. She wore a hood that looked as if it was made of puffer material—peeking out were a set of super-straight, blonde bangs, cut to a little point at the center of her forehead.
Sure, the bangs caught our attention, but it was Kim’s fringe accessory that really made us do a double take. In the middle of the bangs was a tiny Prada logo—the kind you would find on a purse or sewn to a jacket—just hanging out there like, “Hey, what’s up, this is a very expensive set of bangs.”
For decades, Lil’ Kim has set trends and pushed boundaries in fashion, so it comes as little surprise that she would give us a moment at Sunday night’s awards show. We’re not going to lie—we’ve never seen anyone wear a designer logo like this. But since it’s Kim, there’s a high possibility that this may become a trend. Take notes, folks.
