Missy Elliott Is Dressed to Perfection in Marc Jacobs’ New Fall 2016 Campaign

Supa dupa fly.

Missy Elliott cannot be stopped.

Elliott, who will be honored at VH1’s 2016 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queen this July, is featured in Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 campaign—and the pictures are amazing. Her hair styled into a fabulous angular ’do, Elliott dons Canada Goose’s Manitoba Parka, as seen in Jacobs’ FW16 February show.

“Missy’s music has kept me and my design team happily energized through countless weekdays, weeknights and weekends during those long hours of sketching, fitting, styling and doing looks,” Jacobs wrote of Elliott in a lengthy Instagram post (below). “I am in continued awe of Missy’s ability to push the boundaries of the style of music both to the eye and to the ear.”

MISSY, Supa Dupa Fly From the moment I heard, The Rain, back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. Missy’s music has kept me and my design team happily energized through countless weekdays, weeknights and weekends during those long hours of sketching, fitting, styling and doing looks. In addition to the boundless energy of her music are the visually pulsating and wildly cartoon-like music videos she made in collaboration with the talented and visionary, Hype Williams. I am in continued awe of Missy’s ability to push the boundaries of the style of music both to the eye and to the ear. It was a dream of mine to work with her and I'm happy to share this portrait by David Sims for our Fall '16 campaign.

Jacobs also revealed on IG that the campaign, photographed by David Sims, involves a portrait series representing “a collective embodiment of love, honesty, integrity, courage, strength, curiosity and inspiration.” Also featured in the campaign are Genesis P-Orridge, Sissy Spacek, John Tuite and Carlos Santolalla.


Elliott stuns in these photos and we can’t wait to see her kill it at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors awards in less than a month. To hold you over, check out the following clip we dug up “From The Vault” of Elliott discussing what made her want to be a rapper.

Ladies first, y’all.
