To pay homage to our 1999-themed issue, hitting newsstands on September 7th, we reimagined some of the most iconic celebrity looks from a time when the red carpet ruled. 1999 saw its fair share of these moments, and we tapped photographer Petra Collins to give us her take on all of the greats. Among them, was rapper Lil’ Kim whose mermaid-inspired purple pasty moment at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards is still considered one the most memorable looks of all time. As the only female member of the hip hop group Junior M.A.F.I.A. the Queen Bee was wise to use fashion as a way to steal the show and Kim Kardashian—who counts Lil’ Kim as a close friend—is no stranger to such tactics herself. In the second image, Kim channels P.E.T.A.’s biggest supporter Pamela Anderson, who famously traded in her red swimsuit for a slew of show stopping red carpet looks in the ’90s.
Stay tuned throughout the week for more sneak peeks from our epic throwback story and from inside the upcoming CR 11.
