Have you ever asked yourself what kind of music you could listen to, day and night, not like on-and-on-again, but like if-I-supposedly-woke-you-up-at-3-a.m.-put-some-music-for-you-what-would-be-the-music-that-wouldn’t-make-you-instantly-throw-a-pillow-at-me?
You would, most probably, anyway, throw a pillow at me, but still, what would it be? I’ve been asking myself this for some time now just to see if the answer is the same and it is. George Michael all the way.
It’s the same with clothes. There are clothes that you would throw on you, at any time, and feel good under whatever circumstances in. Those are, usually, the clothes to define your style.
What is the first image of George Michael that comes to mind? Your mind. Fast, fast, fast. First! Exactly!
The cross earring, the biker jacket and that hair. Would you have said the cross earring only? No, of course not. The image flashed just before our eyes a couple of seconds ago and it was it all. It was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou a.k.a. George Michael, born in London to a Greek father and an English mother.
Not to mention those aviators and that look! Hey, but that’s just me and Father Figure is one of my all time favourite songs. Flamenco dancing emoji.
He was so into singing that he didn’t care about what he wore – or at least he pretended not to – and kept on wearing the same things. Put together, they created something so authentic that it, eventually, turned into the iconic style we all have been in awe of. Even though it was his music first, that kind of style can only be pulled off by someone who enjoys fashion and its magic, also. He was the only one to have had five supermodels in one video alone and take the day of the shooting off. That’s right.

He had to show up in Too funky (directed by Thierry Mugler), though, just to show to the world what Beyonce‘s bodysuit would look like twenty years later.
Faith not only became one of his greatest hits, but propelled the Levi’s 501 to stardom, God bless that day!
One More Try is now playing in the background and it is the proof that style does not only mean clothes.
But then there he is in all leather. Fast love.
And in all white. A Different Corner.
No, you are Amazing, George!
And you sang with Whitney and that is that! If I Told You That
