... Kanye West & Gwen Stefani Do Not

Every year, TIME curates a list of the 100 most influential people in the world, naming politicians, entrepreneurs and celebrities. The publication has just released a bonus list -- of "All-TIME" fashion icons -- featuring The Beatles, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Michael Jackson and David Bowie.

The musicians, all of whom were listed in the "Muses" category, landed alongside designers, models, actresses and politicians' wives. Also named are Seal's soon-to-be-ex-wife Heidi Klum and David Bowie's wife, supermodel Iman. English model Twiggy, who has released several albums over the years, also snagged a spot on the list, along with U.K. songstress Jane Birkin.

TIME included a blurb for each honoree, noting why they all made the list, from David Bowie's "rebellious androgyny" to Lady Gaga's meat dress and V magazine column. The Beatles were noted for their mop tops and neon suits, Madonna for her influence over '80s teens, and Michael Jackson for his "Thriller" jacket -- still iconic to this day -- and glittering glove.

Rapper-turned-fashion designer Kanye West didn't make the cut, nor did singer Gwen Stefani, who has Harajuku and L.A.M.B. fashion lines, in addition to her Target Kids' collab. Several fashion icons from the music world, like Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Diana Ross, were also left off the list.
