Did you check out BET’s “Rip the Runway” show last night? No? Yeah, I missed it too. But Lil Kim made a comeback in a sequin and see-through jumpsuit and in yellow stilettos that were as tall as her hair. She not only performed her new single, “If you Love Me,” but she also took us on a walk down memory lane with her verses on “It’s All About the Benjamins,” and “Crush on You.” If you want to get people to be on your side, going for the oldies but goodies is always the best idea. Can’t lie, I was rocking with her: “You can slide on my ice like the Escapade, and itchy-gitchy-yaya with the marmalade!” Classic.
And can we talk about the outfits the models were wearing during the performance? They were maaaad cute! But anywho, check out her performance and skintight outfit below, as well as our girl Estelle’s and the oh-so smooth Robin Thicke telling us not to worry our pretty little hearts. Let us know your thoughts. Thanks!
Robin Thicke: (Love “Pretty Lil Heart” by the way)

For all the fashion heads, I’m sure you’re very pumped about Rip the Runway making its return to BET on March 21. You’ll get to check out funky, fly and fresh fashions of new and seasoned black designers, and in the midst of all that, get to rock out to some very entertaining performances (Lil Kim, Wale and Estelle are a few who you can look forward to). The taping of the show took place last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC, and The Game star Pooch Hall and model Selita Ebanks were hosts. Check out the best (and possibly worst) of Selita’s style choices from last night.
Ebanks hit the red carpet for the event last night in this figure hugging turtleneck dress (sans sleeves). The multicolored dress was rich in details, showcasing zippers, glitter, mesh and more. She paired it with some floral-detailed heels in black, and opted out of real jewelry. Loving the ombre hair color and the perfectly curled bangs (ever over-curled your bangs? It looks a mess…). The makeup was also very clean and playful.
