For his London Fashion Week show on Feb. 18, Tom Ford found inspiration in an unlikely source: Jay Z, who literally sang the designer's praises in his hit song, "Tom Ford," rapping "I don't pop molly. I rock Tom Ford."

Jay Z, 44, wore a "Tom Ford 61" jersey shirt with the word "molly" crossed out during his Magna Carta Holy Grail tour. Ford took that design and gave it a sequined upgrade for the London catwalk. "I just took the knock off from online, and knocked it off," Ford told The Associated Press.  The long-sleeved dress appeared in black and bronze versions.

However, while a version of Jay Z's tour shirt is sold online for $65, the designer's version is decidedly more luxe. "My knockoff will sell for $6,500," he told Style.com
