Lil Kim may be a hip-hop legend, but these days, that is not the only thing she is known for! The Brooklyn native has changed drastically over the last decade, and fans were shocked when she showed off her latest look at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show. Check out her face transformation in 16 clicks!
At Yeezy's show, Lil Kim's face was snatched as she posed with the rapper, Kylie Jenner, and Caitlyn.
When the 41-year-old rapper first came out, she certainly had a different appearance though.
Over the years, she’s experimented with her look by wearing an array of colorful wigs, eye contacts, and even going under the knife.
Her skin color has also drastically changed over time, and she's been accused of bleaching her skin to appear lighter.
While Lil Kim has only ever admitted to a nose job, Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star revealed to RadarOnline, “Her face appears contoured and has a waxy sheen. It appears that she’s undergone injection of fillers as well.”
The 4’11” Crush On You artist rarely speaks about her surgery, but back in 2005, when asked about criticism over her appearance, she told radio personality Angie Martinez, “It don’t bother me because I told you, I’m beautiful. I love myself. I mean you know there are certain things I think I was obsessive with that I always have time to fix.”
She continued, “But the thing of it is people think I did it because I have low self-esteem but that wasn’t the case I think I did it because I was a little too vain at the time, trying to be perfect…I’m a perfectionist. It teaches you a lesson too you know. You got to pull back overall.”
But since 2005, it’s pretty evident Lil Kim has gone for a new look!
“Overall, this an example of plastic surgery gone bad,” celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Garo Kassabian of Lift MD Aesthetics Beverly Hills, who has not treated the rapper, told RadarOnline in 2012.
“It looks like she had a brow lift from top to bottom, leaving her brows looking uneven and also a nostril reduction,” he continued.
We just cannot keep up with her ever-changing face!
And one person who is not a fan of the rapper's look is none other than celeb gossip queen Wendy Williams!
"Kim, in my head, I knew your goal was always to look like Letoya Jackson. You've out Letoya'ed Letoya in your new look," she said during a 2013 episode of her talk show.
"And blame blame your plastic surgeon girl," Wendy continued. Ouch!
