George Michael’s Glamorous “Freedom” Video

The “Freedom” video, released in 1990, may mark the high point of the intermingling of the fashion and music worlds. George Michael was a pop star of the highest order, and he recruited the pinnacle of fashion’s supermodels: Crawford, Turlington, Campbell, Evangelista, and Patitz. Remarkably, the production crew would also go onto greatness in their fields, including director David Fincher (Seven, Fight Club, The Social Network, Gone Girl). The New York Times reflects on the iconic collaboration of glamorous talent.
