Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot is not only a singer, songwriter, dancer and producer, but also a fashion innovator. Missy’s music videos are futuristic and her fashion sense is nothing short of groundbreaking. She has created her own lane when it comes to fully clothed fly!
Missy’s jaw dropping fashion has constantly evolved since dropping her debut album and first video “Sock it 2 Me” in 1997. “Sock it 2 Me” was all about a superhero who donned a bright red wig and eye catching makeup. In an era where R&B and Hip Hop was dominated with skintight outfits Missy slayed in full astronaut gear.
Her follow up music videos have yet to disappoint us! Who else do you know could perform a whole dance routine in a fully jeweled jean suit or what seems to be a big black plastic bag and still be a sex symbol?
In Missy’s 1997’s “She’s Bitch” she rocked a bald jeweled head and sunglasses with leather bustier.
2001 was all about jean suits for Missy. Whether jeweled or studded she rocked them effortlessly
The very next year Missy brought back Kangoo hats, visors and Adidas sweat suits to main stream
In 2004’s “I’m Really Hot” the white fur lined puffer jacket and matching joggings pants sizzled!
Comfy and fresh in a royal blue sweat suit with a jeweled out crown with fresh kicks stood out in “Lose Control.”
A band leader suited and booted in all gold has never looked so good!
Missy’s recent comeback with “WTF” definitely didn’t fail us. Her mirrored tracksuit shined throughout the whole video.
Missy has blessed us with almost 20 years of innovative videos and fashion sense. Her evolution is something we here at EGL are addicted to watching!
