As if we need a real reason to watch 11 supermodels strut their stuff around New York City. For this momentous occasion, we just have Vogue and George Michael to thank for this eye-pleasing slice of heaven.
October marks the 26th anniversary of George Michael’s exhilarating pop anthem “Freedom! ‘90.” For the song’s music video, the former Wham! teen star turned gay icon famously shunned the spotlight, and instead, chose to feature the biggest supermodels of the decade, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell, lip-syncing his lyrics. The video, directed by David Fincher and styled by Camilla Nickerson, became an unforgettable moment in fashion-meets-pop culture history. And so, what better way to pay tribute to the “Freedom! ‘90” anniversary than by making our own modernized version of its iconic video? Watch the next generation of mega supermodels—Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Anna Ewers, Irina Shayk, Taylor Hill, and more—dressed up in the best looks from the Spring 2017 runways while dancing on the streets of New York City to George Michael’s classic, and still as infectiously upbeat, song.
