Stella McCartney ended her Paris Fashion Week show yesterday (March 6) with a surprise tribute to the late George Michael.
The designer’s catwalk models came out at the end of her autumn/winter showcase to sing and dance along to a remixed version of ‘Faith’.
Michael famously cast five of the ’90s’ biggest supermodels – Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford – in his video for ‘Freedom 90’. Supermodels including Eva Herzigova, Linda Evangelista and Tyra Banks then appeared in his ‘Too Funky’ video two years later.

Last week George Michael’s longtime partner Kenny Goss gave his first interview since the singer’s death on Christmas Day. Asked if there had ever been a moment when Michael broke his heart, Goss told the Dallas Morning News: “Oh, I don’t know of one. We just had a really good, sweet relationship.” Goss said their break-up “just what it was – we weren’t even mad at each other or anything like that.”
However, he declined to comment on the pop icon’s funeral, which has reportedly been delayed because of toxicology tests.
