The long-time “Supa Dupa Fly” Missy Elliott graces the June issue of Elle Magazine. Elliott is especially known for her unique style. Additionally, she made her mark in the Music Industry with her exceptional lyricism and vibrant visuals. It only makes sense that Missy Elliott would cover Elle Magazine’s June issue honoring women in Hip Hop.
Missy Elliott appears in Marc Jacobs’ Fall and Winter collection for the cover according to Bill Board.
I still remember hearing Missy’s music playing on the radio as a little girl. I would watch her videos and be so inspired by her daring attitude. I also credit her with being a big influence on my own adventurous spirit when it comes to creating and expressing myself. Furthermore, “The Rain”, and the black trash bag, are still at the top of my list for most creative releases.
“To me, the outfit was a way to mask my shyness behind all the chaos of the look. Although I am shy, I was never afraid to be a provocative woman. The outfit was a symbol of power. I loved the idea of feeling like a hip-hop Michelin woman. I knew I could have on a blow-up suit and still have people talking. It was bold and different. I’ve always seen myself as an innovator and a creative unlike any other” – Missy Elliott via XXL
