Missy Elliott Dressed Up As Herself For Halloween Because She's Missy And She Can

Twenty-two years later and she's still supa dupa fly.

The year was 1997. People everywhere fell in love with Jack Dawson, Teletubbies invaded the Earth, and Missy Elliott dropped her debut album, Supa Dupa Fly — and changed the rap game as we know it.

The Goldmind

The album gifted us with songs such as "Sock It 2 Me" with Da Brat and "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)," which included that LEGENDARY inflatable black suit.

Fast-forward to today. Missy is still a bona fide superstar and proved to us all that she literally doesn't age by re-creating the very album cover that started it all.

WOW🤩😱 This Halloween I decided to RECREATE my 1st album cover from 22 YEARS AGO one of these pictures I took ONLY 3 DAYS AGO the other was 22 YEARS AGO CAN YALL TELL THE DIFFERENCE??👇🏾

Just so you can really see it, here's a high-quality version of the original 1997 cover again.

And here she is, 22 years later!!! Like, WHAT?!

Her fans couldn't get past just how similar the two pictures looked:

Life: its time to age and look older Missy Elliott’s genes:

@MissyElliott Oh so we gonna just stunt like they ain’t identical!! I listen to this album to this day!! ♥️

@MissyElliott Wowwwww.. black DO NOT CRACK😳😳🤯❤❤

Hell, even Missy's own mother couldn't even tell the difference between the two pictures.

@LabellaCardiBey Lol my mom couldn’t even tell but if you look closely you can see the difference but I am more happy that my outfit is still in tack that outfit 22 year old leather😅

This isn't the first time Missy's dressed up as herself for Halloween. Last year, she re-created the blow-up suit by putting on a shiny Versace coat and giving us a lil' music video moment.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!😂🤣😂 I figured I’d be Missy Elliott from “The Rain” video but the 2018 version😂 I couldn’t find my blow up suit so just threw on my Versace coat🤷🏾‍♀️🤣 and I had no effects just my crazy ass😩🤦🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🤣😂🤣👏🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🔥@Timbaland

I think we can all agree that Missy has still got it. Every inch of it!
