Supererstar recipient of this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Missy Elliott, may have set the VMA’s and social media on fire with her show-stopping performance at the VMA Awards recently, but the post-show celebration in her honor was nothing short of spectacular.
Unik Ernest and team joined forces with Elliott’s long-time manager and good friend, Mona Scott-Young, to curate the star-studded event which hosted an impressive list of guests: Queen Latifah, Cardi B, Lizzo, Lil’ Kim, Oscar winner Regina King, tennis star Novak Djokovic, Brazilian Stunner model Adriana Lima, Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger (world champion US Women’s soccer team), Ice-T and Coco, Blac Chyna, Lil’ Mama, Dave East, Victor Cruz, Naturi Naughton, Winnie Harlow were among the elite who came out to celebrate with Elliott. Celebrity DJ Mary Mac 5 Star kept the energy high as guests partied into the wee hours.
The event was held at “The Museum of Missy Elliott,” an interactive pop-up playground that allowed guests to engage in the most memorable and iconic moments from Elliott’s music videos. The concept boasted a live hologram experience where guests could record a gif of themselves performing to Elliott’s hit classic “The Rain,” while virtually wearing her signature inflated trash bag.
