Miley Cyrus made the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards scandalous, but for Halloween, she’s channeling Lil’ Kim‘s big VMA moment. Cyrus posted a series of photos on twitter of her dressed up in an exact replica of Lil’ Kim’s outrageous purple jumpsuit & seashell pastie ensemble from the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. Cyrus might have twerked on Robin Thicke this year, but never forget that Diana Ross once patted Lil’ Kim’s boob.

We speculated yesterday that Miley Cyrus might be dressing up as another scandalous starlet from this year: Amanda Bynes. It turns out that Cyrus’s purple banged wig wasn’t an homage to Bynes’s blue wig, but an exact copy of Lil’ Kim’s infamous look. Cyrus not only had the hair and the make up down, but her jumpsuit and pastie seem to be made from the exact same material and to the exact same pattern as Kim’s outfit. The original look was designed by Misa Hylton, who was Kim’s stylist. No word on whether Hylton hooked Cyrus up with this version of the costume.

Cyrus seems to be enjoying Halloween this year. She not only posted a photo of her twerking on her friend, Cheyne Thomas, at a party, but she also posted photos of pornographic pumpkins online yesterday. Happy Halloween indeed!
