Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

There's an avalanche of new Michael Jackson music coming out, and I honestly couldn't be more excited about it! The King of Pop has soundtracked many the poignant moment in my life: learning the alphabet, my very first Halloween party, and even that time I befriended a killer rat. All along the way, MJ has been a beacon of iconic style from his bellbottomed Jackson 5 days to his signature band jackets, so in honor of the forthcoming release of Xscape, we're taking a look back at his most stylish music videos.

You can't talk about MJ's style without talking about the "Thriller" jacket. That bright cherry red. That angular V-shaped panel. The fact that it's the style centerpiece of one of the greatest music videos of all time. This is the definition of iconic.

Michael had a knack for striking separates (something he picked up in his youth, perhaps?), and his wardrobe for ground-breaking music video "Billie Jean" was no exception. If you think a pink shirt and a bow tie is soft, try wearing them with an all-leather suit. Now who's soft, HANH?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
