Lil’ Kim with blue eyes

Kimberly Jones -- better known as Lil' Kim -- poses for photographers before the Usher Motorola afterparty for the MTV Video Music Awards. This was at the Shore Hotel in Miami, Florida on August 29, 2004. Lil' Kim is brown-eyed by birth, but at times wears blue contact lenses to achieve this striking effect. Lil' Kim was born in 1974, so she turned 30 the year this photo was taken.
