New York Fashion Week : Marc Jacobs 2018 Ready-to-Wear
Vogue.com: Unsurprisingly, Lil Kim Wins Most Surprising Hair at New York Fashion Week
If New York Fashion Week has been any indication, the current take on colored hair is defined by slightly washed out tones, innovative color placement, and a blend of unnatural and organic hues. But back in the '90s—the era that has succeeded in inspiring our present tense lean towards all things careless and slightly camp—celebrities opted for dye jobs made memorable by their saturated nature, and those candy-coated notions were spearheaded by none other than Lil' Kim. And it seems the irreverent rapper is back to remind onlookers of that very fact.
The front row at this evening's Marc Jacobs Fall 2018 show saw Kim shaking out a mermaid mane of sea-inspired hues, deep turquoise run through with verdant strands in an aesthetic mimicry of kelp. Her glossy, reflective waves streamed toward waist-level, a deep side part adding an extra kick of drama to the already eye-catching style. Kim, not one for subtlety—need we remind you of the lavender pastie that was matched perfectly to her pin-straight mane at the 1999 VMAS?—opted to top her deep-dive hairstyle with a black and white turban supplemented by florets. Simply add a smoky eye, glossy nude lip, and preternaturally perfect skin, and you have a look that is quintessentially Lil' Kim.

Over the last 100 years, the role and rights of women have changed beyond all recognition. But, one thing that has stayed constant is the sheer number of awe-inspiring women that exist all over the world. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of partial suffrage, we’ve made a list of the 100 most inspirational women from the last century. Some are feminist mainstays, some are relative unknowns and some are controversial – but they all changed the world. From badass suffragettes to empowering quotes: ladies, prepare for a healthy dose of #inspo.
Who: Lil’ Kim
Why she inspires us: Rapper, singer and LGBT advocate, Lil’ Kim was one of the first women to insist that women belonged in the 90s rap scene, whilst making no apologies for her sexuality.
What she taught us: Don’t apologise for yourself: with lyrics like ‘If I was you I’d hate me too/Louis Vuitton shoes and a whole lot of booze’, Lil’ Kim certainly doesn’t.
