At this point, we’re not sure that there is such a thing as a new surprising look for Missy Elliott. The rapper-cum-style-icon has spent the last 20 years (feel old yet?) mixing it up with her fashion choices, and now she can add a new item to her résumé (as if she needed it)—face of a Marc Jacobs campaign.
For the last several seasons, Jacobs has taken an unexpected turn with his advertising campaigns, focusing on portraits of celebs with their own senses of style, including Winona Ryder, Cher, Beth Ditto, Bette Midler, and Lana Wachowski. This season, the designer will add Missy Elliott and actress Sissy Spacek to the lineup.

“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 in the caption of the campaign’s Instagram debut. “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.” Considering how amazing Elliott looks in this techno-meets-streetwear-meets-Final Fantasy look, we can’t wait to see the rest of the images.
