NEW YORK (CBS) Women's Wear Daily is celebrating its centennial with a list of the most remarkable fashion moments in its 100-year history.

Some of the historical moments on the list that changed the fashion industry included the introduction and popularity of hair dye, the rise of flapper fashion in the '20s, the introduction of the bikini, the murder of Gianni Versace and the February suicide of Alexander McQueen.

Even the sinking of the Titanic made the list - one of the co-owners of Macy's was onboard, and WWD also reported on the loss of the thousands of dollars worth of garments, French silks and Morrocan cotton that went down with the ship.

The daily also highlighted fashionistas including Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow, Jackie Kennedy, Madonna, Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga, along with designers such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg.

Other major fashion moments on the list included the rise of celebrity fragrances (kicked off by Elizabeth Taylor) and designers like Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani. The introduction of MTV feuled the desire to see fashionable stars in music videos, "Sex and the City" made shoe designers like Manolo Blahnik household names and Isaac Mizrahi's line for Target started a trend of designers creating reasonably priced lines.

WWD also listed the rise of the supermodels, and the controversy over thin models, on its list of memorable fashion moments.
