After entertaining the world for more than thirty years, George Michael’s life came to an end at the untimely age of fifty-three. The English singer and songwriter initially rose to fame as one half of the music duo Wham! With the 1987 release of his album, Faith, Michael achieved superstardom. The music legend’s catalogue includes hits such as Careless Whisper, One More Try, and Father Figure.
Michael also left his mark on fashion with memorable music videos for singles such as Freedom! ’90. The video, which helped define a generation, included supermodels Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell. Michael’s style also resonated with an era. From the late 1980s to the early 90s, Michael redefined cool with a bad ass wardrobe of leather jackets, easy tees, and skinny denim jeans.
