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.
