The fashion designer unveiled a behind-the-scenes shot, as well as one of the photos from the ad campaign on his Instagram and shared with his followers why he chose the Grammy-winning artist. (I mean…do we really need an explanation, though?!):
“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,” the fashion icon said.
He continued to gush about her visual and creative direction, her ability to push boundaries, and more. “It was a dream of mine to work with her,” Marc revealed.
Cooler than a fan, Missy tweeted a thank you to Marc, linking back to his image and dropping some emojis, including the praise and fire emoji.
This is one ad campaign you won’t want to miss.
