In George Michael’s pop prime, starring in the rugged Englishman’s videos became almost a rite of passage, marking a grand arrival for models from all over the world.
1990’s David Fincher-directed “Freedom! ’90” wrangled together supermodels who banked a reported $15,000 a day. Gianni Versace closed his Milan Fall 1991 show with the song and its video models walking in unison.
In 1992, “Too Funky” boasted pieces from acclaimed designer Thierry Mugler, which several runway stars wore. Michael’s influence on fashion and style is undeniable.
