We are gearing up for the 25th anniversary of Essence Festival in July and have a jam-packed lineup for the weekend. Ahead of the festivities, we’re highlighting some of the performers’ best looks. We continue with Missy Elliott—she is a legend, and the Songwriters Hall of Fame confirmed that last week by inducting her into the A-list club. Elliott has paved the way for women in the rap industry, all while creating a style that only the hitmaker can pull off. Whether it’s oversize clothes, cowboy hats or velour matching sets, the Elliott influence in today’s fashion and music industry in general doesn’t go unnoticed.
