The Divine Miss E. | In honor of Missy Elliots birthday this week, we are looking back at her V29 cover for the next installment of our ๐‚๐จ๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ž๐œ๐ญ๐จ๐ซโ€™๐ฌ ๐‚๐ฅ๐ฎ๐›! Shot back in 2004, Missy was about to release Respect M.E., a collaboration with Adidas, and was embarking on her "Ladies First" tour with fellow V alums Beyonce and Alicia keys when she graced the cover of V. In a conversation with then creative director of the brand Michael Michalsky, Missy revealed her longtime admiration for the sportswear label and confessed to owning over 3,000 pairs of sneakers. The outspoken rapper and producer also spoke candidly about being a female powerhouse in a male dominated industry, saying โ€œItโ€™s beautiful to be a powerful woman in the industry. As we all know, this is a male-dominated world, so as a female, when you can come through and make that mark and have people love and respect what you do, you feel like youโ€™ve conquered something.โ€ V Love You, Missy! โ™ฅ๏ธ

With only ONE issue left in the world, you donโ€™t want to miss this opportunity to score your copy.ย
