61. Missy Elliot (The Supa Dupa Freak)
She introduced us to “What the fuck”. This woman was different from every other hip hop/urban artist out. Yes she was a singer, yes she was a rapper. But her execution was foreign compared to anything else we ever saw. Her name is Missy Elliott and she had you believing that sporting finger weaves and wearing black trash bags were Fashion Oks.  She wore tons of baggy clothes, mostly overalls in her early career, in bright orange or pink. She later took it to another level with her sophomore album and began putting rhinestones on her eyebrows and experimenting with short haircuts and heavy bangs. The Missy Elliott of today is a way more laid back, but sexier woman. Since her weight loss, she’s worn shorts and fitted caps, still keeping her class and maintaining her personal edge by not going designer crazy. A lot of her shirts are plain T-Shirts. Missy is also recognized for wearing a lot of hats, of all types: fitted, kango, visors, etc. Lets also not forget she popularized track suits with matching hats like no other could dare do. There was also a magnificent period when totally gave us the 80s era and this actually influenced a lot of other artists to follow the same foot steps.
