Missy Elliot Lands Elle Magazine June Cover!
Music legend Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott graced the cover of Elle, but we were not supposed to know that yet. Marc Jacobs leaked the news on his Instagram before it was "ok" to do so. Missy was dressed in all Marc Jacobs attire and the designer must have been very excited about that and promoted the cover before Elle got the chance to promote it.
Marc Jacobs wrote on his Instagram,
“Holler!! The incredible @missymisdemeanorelliott in our Fall/Winter 2017 collection @stephenjonesmillinery Thank you @elleusa for the great cover and editorial pics. I love it!!!!.”
The Marc Jacobs outfit that Missy wore was inspired by the documentary Hip-Hop Evolution. From the looks of the cover, Missy was wearing a tracksuit that has become her signature outfit of choice.
Elle’s Fashion Director, Samira Nasr, also chimed in on the excitement.
“I have been at ELLE for 4 years and for 4 years I have begged to shoot this woman,” she wrote on Instagram. “Our incredible June cover star @missymisdemeanorelliott styled be me with the legendary @misahylton shot by @markseliger hair by #angelastone makeup by #gloriaeliasfoeillet and nails by Miss @bernadettenails #ELLE @barbaragrogan @joannpailey @yashuasimmons @elleusa #itwasagoodday”
We can't wait to see the rest of the pictures taken from the photo-shoot and see what other outfits Jacobs put Missy in. You can snag the magazine with Missy in June.
