Music trailblazer Missy Elliott has never compromised when it comes to being herself and that’s including her style.
Her look, then and now, has always been eye-catching, yet fashionably covered up. It’s on glamorous display on Elle’s June cover, where Elliott appears wearing Marc Jacobs Fall 2017 designs.
But this isn’t the first time Missy has made the cover. For the occasion, she rocked a plastic-bag ensemble in her music video for “The Rain,” and reminisced about it to Elle: “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.”
As magazines plastered with skin-flashing celebs and naked dressing continue to trend, Elliott makes for a nice reminder that you can still turn heads with your clothes on. Go Missy, Go Missy !
