The Best Fashion Lyrics Of 2012

It's the home stretch, y'all! We are soooo close to the end of the year, we can almost TASTE the Auld Lang Syne and New Year's glitterbombing. All month long, we've been counting down the biggest and best style moments of 2012 from the typical like best hair, nail art, and campaigns to the silly (e.g. cat ladies, sticker apps, and Instagram selfies). What's next on deck? A personal favorite: the year's best fashion lyrics.

MTV Style exists, in part, due to an intrinsic and unavoidable relationship between music and fashion. That happy creative marriage manifests itself in a couple of different ways from designers inspired by musical muses to high fashion performance outfits to renaissance musician/designers dominating everything from the runway to retail à la Kanye West and Jessica Simpson. The point of intersection we're interested in today is the "Fashion Lyric." Musicians, especially MCs, have been writing style references into their songs for years, but this year, fashion lyrics feel more prevalent than ever. I mean, what are the chances of both Yeezy and Nicki Minaj penning rhymes about Vogue EIC Anna Wintour in the same year? And believe us, that's only the tip of the iceberg. We made it our duty to sift out all the best nuggets from this year's offerings (yes, non-singles from new album releases this year were fair game!) and relay them back to you. Peep our round-up of the best fashion lyrics of 2012 from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's ode to thrift shopping to A$AP Rocky's expert integration of Maison Martin Margiela, and there's even a nod to Lady Gaga's Philip Treacy runway wardrobe extravaganza. Enjoy!
