If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then rapper Lil’ Kim is all smiles.

After Miley Cyrus tweeted her Halloween garb as the Queen Bee in the purple jumpsuit from the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards, Lil’ Kim not only gave her praise on Twitter, but complimented Cyrus for pulling off one of the most talked about outfits in the past decade.

“How awesome was that! Put it this way, she did me very well I think she looked gorgeous. I love her; she’s one of my besties,” Lil’ Kim told MTV News. “She’s like my bestie-slash-wifey. You know what’s so funny? As soon as she tweeted the picture, she texted me and was like she was like, ‘Happy Halloween, babe!’ … I think she did me well.”

Lil’ Kim also showed her support of her Miley’s sentiment of “just being Miley.”

“She’s so outrageous, she’s fun, she’s gorgeous, she’s just living her life,” said Lil’ Kim. “The purple pasty with the purple hair is something that kids love, women love, and men love and people all over the world loved. “When people give you that compliment on Halloween, it’s huge.”
