Best of 2015: 10 Music Videos With Killer Style
Because you'd be feeling yourself too if you rocked these looks.
As 2015 comes to an end (we're so ready for the new year), we're taking a look back at this year's music videos with the most memorable fashion moments. From Drake's cozy turtleneck and nylon jacket in "Hotline Bling" to Maroon 5's sleek duds for crashing weddings in catchy love song "Sugar," we're presenting an unranked list of music's biggest stars wearing the coolest clothes.
"Bad Blood" by Taylor Swift feat. Kendrick Lamar
Not only did T. Swift's music video, which debuted during this year's Billboard Music Awards, break Vevo's record for most single-day views with 20.1 million views in its first day of release (that is, before Adele premiered "Hello"), the four-minute short also featured some killer looks. Think spiked bras, leather LBDs and bodysuits and furry hoodies — all rocked by herself and her crew.
"WTF (Where They From)" by Missy Elliott feat. Pharrell Williams
Missy Elliott made a major comeback with her first real single in 10 years with "WTF (Where They From)," in which she's seen busting out her kick-ass dance moves and rocking the most over-the-top looks. From a custom outfit covered with mirrors (sneakers included) to a Pop Art-inspired ensemble, the hip-hop legend never compromises her style or fails to surprise.
"FourFiveSeconds" by Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney
Starring RiRi, Kanye West and Paul McCartney, the "FourFiveSeconds" music video sees the three clad in denim duds. "Kanye came up with the idea of doing just some real street denim all American type look," shared RiRi in a behind-the-scenes clip for the video. Because of course Yeezus did.
"Sugar" by Maroon 5
Take note, wedding crashers: Maroon 5 cleaned up nicely as they crashed weddings around L.A. to perform their catchy love tune, "Sugar." Because who doesn't want to see Adam Levine in a tux? Yes, please.
"Hotline Bling" by Drake
No one made us want to wear a cozy turtleneck and puff jacket more than Drake when he debuted the music video that launched a million memes. Even Adele bought the red Moncler's "Maya" jacket featured in "Hotline Bling." Said the singer, "I love Drake. I love Drake so much. I even got the coat that's in the video — I got it delivered the other day, I ordered it. The red one."
"Sorry" by Justin Bieber
Not only did Parris Geobel choreograph Bieb's "Sorry" music video, the New Zealand-based dancer also came up with the colorful '90s outfits. "Me and two of my friends pretty much styled everyone. We all did our own makeup and were spontaneous," Geobel told US Weekly. "Most of it was my wardrobe, actually. We just kind of put together what we had."
"On My Mind" by Ellie Goulding
From the flashy gowns to the unbuttoned dress shirt-and-heels combo, the English singer goes for a sexier vibe in her "On My Mind" music video. But when she's not all dressed up, Goulding is seen wearing a studded denim jacket while riding a horse through a Las Vegas casino. Because, you know, that's cool, too.

"Bitch I'm Madonna" by Madonna feat. Nicki Minaj
Taylor Swift wasn't the only one to enlist her famous friends to star in her music video — Madonna also rounded up the likes of Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Beyonce and designer Alexander Wang for the "Bitch I'm Madonna" video. The colorful clip sees Madonna jamming out in a Moschino leopard dress, custom leather jacket by Discount Universe and Guiseppe Zanotti shoes.
"Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars
Leave it to Mark Ronson (one of this year's musicians featured in Billboard's Men of Style feature) and Bruno Mars to look totally cool in fedoras, blazers and gold chains for their throwback hit "Uptown Funk" music video. "Got Chucks on with Saint Laurent" never sounded so sleek.
"Feeling Myself" by Nicki Minaj and Beyonce
Because wearing bodysuits with fur coats and gold chokers in an inflatable pool is the only way to chill on the weekends, right?
