Gwen’s 2005 smash “Rich Girl” has been included in Women’s Wear Daily’s list of the most stylish moments in music. They feature the song due to it’s references to designer brands, citing Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano.

WWD — The phenomenon of entertainment media product placement dates way back to 1927 when “Wings,” which took home the inaugural Academy Award for Best Picture, plugged Hershey’s chocolate. Though music lacks film’s visual possibilities, in recent years “brand-dropping,” as it has come to be known, has become just as common as its cinematic cousin. There’s even an advertising firm, The Kluger Agency, that focuses on bridging the gap between its clients and the music industry.

So how many songs out there actually mention designer brands? Too many to list. But here, WWD provides a historical look at some fashion-related product mentions.

Gwen Stefani, “Rich Girl feat. Eve,” 2004, “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.”

LYRICS: “Think what that money could bring / I’d buy everything / Clean out Vivienne Westwood / In my Galliano gown.”
