Missy Elliot Wears Marc Jacobs on the Cover of Elle [Instagram]
Missy Elliot landed the cover of Elle's June Women in Music issue, rocking a track suit and oversize knit cap from Marc Jacobs' hip-hop-inspired fall collection. The rapper, who was photographed by Mark Seliger and styled by Misa Hylton, also donned Jennifer Fisher earrings and massive Graff Diamonds. “One thing I won’t do is compromise," Elliot said in her interview. "I will never do something based on what everybody else is telling me to do. And have to kick myself in the ass every night. Nah. I have to make sure that it’s right. I’ve been through so many stumbling blocks to build a legacy, so I wouldn’t want to do something just to fit in. Because I never fit in."
