Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott. Icon, legend, fashion mogul. Since her 1990s debut, Missy has been known and respected for her unique groundbreaking fashion—especially in her music videos and performances. With today being her birthday, we wanted to revisit some of her best music video fashion moments, and we’re gonna go in chronological order, starting with one of the most memorable, “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).”

1. The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) - 1997

Beep, beep, who got the keys to the Jeep? Missy was supa dupa futuristic fly in metallic silver. This video not only produced Missy’s memorable look, but Lil Kim’s as well.

2. She’s A Bitch - 1999

A massively underrated Missy music video/look in our honest opinion. Misdemeanor was out of her mind for this one.

3. Hot Boyz - 1999

What do y’all be driving? Lexus, Benz, Bentleys, Rolls Royce’s? None of them above? Alright. The remix was sick. The visuals were ahead of its time. And that red glitter jacket…bomb.

4. Get Ur Freak On - 2001

Once again, the visuals were insane. It wasn’t the early 2000s if you didn’t have a denim and camouflage jacket in your closet, and like always, Missy did the best.

5. One Minute Man - 2001

The white bucket hat paired with the white and green shirt and pants combo was a moment. 

6. Work It - 2002

One of Missy’s best videos ever. No, scratch that. One of thee best music videos ever. Where do we start? The bee coat was insane. The blue Baby Phat-esque jumpsuit fit right in with the aesthetics of the video. In fact all of them did as a matter of fact. You know what? We can’t choose.

Sidenote: This video is hilarious. You have to really pay attention to all of the small references.

7. I’m Really Hot - 2004

Another of Missy’s finest. The all-white paired with the white makeup was a dope along with the Asian influences. 

8. Lose Control - 2005

Music make you lose control. The desert storm white tank top paired with the shorts were super nice. The 1950s dirndl dress were fun, and once again, Missy annihilated with the jumpsuit at the end by the way.

9. WTF (Where They From) - 2015

And in 2015, Missy proved that after twenty plus years in the game, she was still as stylish and creative as ever with “WTF (Where They From).

To this day, Missy continues to be a driving force in both music and style. Happy Birthday to one of the best to ever do it.
