Niatia Kirkland, better known as Lil Mama, has recently gone through a serious style change. And we’re here for it!
The 27-year-old “Lip Gloss” rapper went from a tomboy style to a grown and sexy with the help of stylists Michael and Tyler Mann.
“Having five brothers and being heavily influenced by hip-hop, I was really a tomboy and I was trying to figure out my style. I was so creative that sometimes I came off like I was a clown.” Niatia told BET. “I would wear so many colors and all these different styles and shapes, I was literally dressed like a doll. Along the way, I think I started to find sensibility and became comfortable in my sexuality in public as opposed to just dressing really nice for dates.”
Michael Mann tells BET that Lil Mama’s new style is inspired by fashion icons like Diana Ross and Donna Summer. “That Diana Ross and Donna Summer fabulous is who she is all day every day. We are all about giving references to those strong and iconic Black women in entertainment because it is still a fresh and new look for Niatia who will also be an icon for fashion, music and film.”
Great job Lil Mama and her team. We can’t wait to see her next red carpet look.
