Transformation Tuesday: Missy Elliott

View Photo Gallery

Missy Elliott is baaacckkk! Everyone’s favorite female rapper is back on the iTunes charts this week after her cameo in Katy Perry’s Superbowl Halftime performance. America seems to be giddy with Missy’s performances of “Get Your Freak On,” “Work It,” and “Lose Control” – so much so that she’s charting again! And of course, we couldn’t help but notice that Missy is looking more glam than ever while still sporting her signature Missy style. Coming into the game in the 90′s, Missy has proved to be one of rap’s most unique fashion icons, rocking everything from finger waves and trash bag chic to bedazzled Adidas tracksuits and neon red hair. No matter what Missy wears, it’s always specifically her style, funky and a little showy, with a street wear base. We hope to get more new Missy soon and until then we’ll keep playing the old hits! Work it, Missy!
