See Missy Elliott Star In Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 Campaign!

It may be only June and summer’s just starting, but designers are already getting a jumpstart on their fall campaigns, and you can expect to see some familiar faces gracing the ads.

For Fall 2016, Marc Jacobs is continuing his portrait-style campaign, which he started during Spring 2016, where he featured the likes of Bette Midler, Pat Cleveland and Beth Ditto.

Yesterday on Instagram, Jacobs revealed rapper, Missy Elliott, would be starring in his Fall 2016 campaign ads.

He captioned the photo, writing, “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. I am in continued awe of Missy’s 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.”

“MISSY, Supa Dupa Fly From the moment I heard, The Rain, back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. 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. 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’s 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.” -@themarcjacobs • Photographed by David Sims Styled by @kegrand Casting by @bitton Hair direction by @guidopalau Makeup direction by @diane.kendal Nails by @jinsoonchoi Set design by @stefanbeckman #MJFW16
