FABTV: George Michael "Too Funky"

FABTV: George Michael "Too Funky"

Upon watching this video for the hundredth time, I realized it had a direct influence on my love for theatrical fashion. This early 90s video is another one of George Michael's brilliant contributions to the world and I was in awe at first viewing.

The cast: Linda (my all time fave), legs-for-days Nadja Auermann, Estelle Lefébure, Emma Sjöberg, a budding Tyra (in a green showgirl getup), Spanish actress with her standout nose Rossy de Palma, and the always beautiful Beverly Peele. I could honestly go on for hours about this video - let's go for a cocktail one day and dish about it! - but the OMG pieces were the iconic motorcycle outfit and femme bot uniform both by Thierry Mugler. Mugler also directed the video. Another jaw dropper: Linda premieres with a peroxided meringue-do that makes me drool every time. In short, this video exhibits raw female fashion empowerment. Too funky? Too fabulous.

Who's that model, whose name wasn't written? She's wearing like "metallic hotpants".
