Kim Kardashian West Dressed Up As Aaliyah For Halloween, And Twitter Wasn’t Feeling It

This weekend, Kim Kardashian West went all out for Halloween and dressed up every single day. On Saturday, the reality star dressed up as late R&B star Aaliyah, and Twitter wasn’t happy at all.

West recreated Aaliyah’s look from her “Try Again” video and wore a bedazzled bralette and pants with a matching belt and choker. She also styled her hair straight and wore smoky eye makeup to emulate the singer. The look was actually reminiscent of Keke Palmer’s tribute to Aaliyah for Halloween 2015.
