CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner up and fine jewelry designer to the stars Jennifer Meyer is a fashion week virgin.
Ever since we hired Nora as an intern (and then made her a permanent fixture here), the new-New Yorker has regaled us with her sometimes sad, sometimes unbelievable, but always hilarious “only in New York Williamsburg” dating stories. We figured you should get to hear them, too. So we’ve asked her to share her trials and tribulations as a single 20-something trying to bag that elusive not-too-hipstery non-asshole–and coordinate the perfect outfit to go with. Taking some inspiration from that other Nora, the legendary Ms. Ephron, we present, “Love, the L Train, and What I Wore.”

Rap lyrics that sound like they’re rattling off the Fashion Month schedule are pretty much par for the course, and this trend can be traced all the way back to the beginnings of the genre. Lately, though, the caliber of the designers mentioned — and the frequency with which they’re mentioned — seems to be at an all-time high.
We decided to take a look back at some of rap’s most well known fashion name-drops over the years (with a little help from the boys from Rap Genius), from the requisite Versace shout-outs of the past, to the more recent inclusion of greats like Alexander McQueen and Isabel Marant. Read on to see the evolution–we bet that we’ll have you singing along by the end.
The amount of fried food involved may surprise you.
