Missy Elliott Provided The Soundtrack At Alexander Wang's H&M Launch

When Alexander Wang throws a party, you know there's going to be music involved. Just at his Spring 2015 show, the designer managed to seat Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Miguel, Tyga, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, and Die Antwoord all within nine seats. If that's how he throws a runway show, imagine how he throws a party. Or, y'know, we can just tell you: At his H&M launch, Wang's guestlist included Mary J Blige, Solange Knowles, his favorite rap upstart Sharaya J, and the great Missy Elliott to soundtrack the affair.

Somehow Wang managed to outdo the clothing with the music. Missy Elliott, who trotted around the party in a Nike Air hoodie and incredible "You Cant Workout With Us" snapback—later changing into one that said Wang along with a bedazzled pullover by the designer—performed her best of, including "Get Ur Freak on," "Lose Control," and, of course, "Work It Again."

Also in attendance were actresses Jessica Chastain, Dakota Fanning, Eddie Redmayne, and Kate Mara. The whole star-studded affair was a reminder of Wang's relevance: He isn't just a celebrity in the fashion world, he's at the nexus of pop culture.
