Missy Elliott has been tapped as the face of Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 campaign. This comes just one day after VH1 announced that the legendary rapper, singer and producer will be honored at this year’s Hip-Hop Honors ceremony, alongside Queen Latifah and other influential women in the genre. Her lyrics have also been chosen to appear on Sprite cans for the summer. Missy’s back like she never left! “From the moment I heard The Rain back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott,” Jacobs says. “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.” So much TRUTH!
