There hasn't been a female rapper yet who has been able to duplicate Missy's contribution to music or her style. Missy is known to rock a tracksuit, but it was the inflated trash bag she wore in her "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" music video that still has folks talking two decades later. And when it comes to hair, no one rocks a finger wave like Missy. Check out Missy's YouTube channel here and get caught up with all her looks. But check out her music video for "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" below.

Eve has come a long way since her Ruff Ryders days, but the rapper's imprint on hip-hop is undeniable. Eve arguably made the short blonde buzz cut cool for women. If you ever come across a woman with a paw print tattoo across her chest, it is safe to say she was inspired by Eve. Eve collaborated with Gwen Stefani and dropped "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" in 2001, which became her highest-charting hit alongside "Gangsta Lovin," both peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100Check out the music video for "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" below.
