Iconic female rapper, song writer, dancer and performer Missy Elliott is the face of Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 Ad Campaign.

David Sims lensed the campaign, while Katie Eleanor Grand handled styling duties.

Jacobs¬†wrote¬†a touching and heartfelt caption about Elliott‘s ability to push boundaries and how she influenced his designs with her creative looks and videos.

From the moment I heard, The Rain, back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. Missy‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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.”
