Lil Kim Had A Wardrobe Malfunction At Hip Hop 50 Live

During a big concert Hip Hop 50 Live, Kim had a moment where her clothes had a problem. 

While singing her popular songs on stage at Yankee Stadium in New York City, her shirt moved, and her breast accidentally showed slightly. 

But she didn’t seem bothered and kept performing for the excited crowd. 

She wore a shiny short top, sparkly shorts, and a short jacket of Gucci Brand. She wore tall red boots and cool aviator sunglasses. 

She often wears eye-catching clothes that show off her great body. 

In 1999, she made a big impression at the MTV Video Music Awards. She wore a lavender outfit that people still talk about today. 

The outfit was put together by a stylish named Misa Hylton

She wore a shiny jumpsuit covered in sequins with a part that showed her left breast.

A matching sequin sticker covered her breast. This outfit became famous because of a joke from another rapper Missy Elliott

Missy noticed that Lil Kim’s nipples sometimes showed, so she said Lil should just come outside with one nipple showing. 

This idea inspired Misa Hylton, and she created a daring outfit for Kim for the VMAs

Even Diana Ross, a famous singer, playfully touched Lil Kim's breast on stage while performing with Mary J Blige during the awards show.
