(AllHipHop News) Rap icon Missy Elliott has been recruited to front designer Marc Jacobs’ latest campaign.
She will be making her debut as a Jacobs muse, but the stylist reveals the Hip-Hop star has been a longtime inspiration.
Calling her “Supa Dupa Fly,”, Jacobs writes:
“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.”
Photographer David Sims captured Missy for Jacobs’ Fall 2016 campaign.
His new campaign also features performance artist and songwriter Genesis Breyer P.Orridge.
