Instant Replay: Models Who Make Music Videos

July 19, 2012 12:07 pm

Models and music videos have a long-standing symbiotic relationship. Almost as long as bands have been conjuring up visual accompaniments for their musical musings, they have been casting pretty faces to star in them—and by “star,” we mean gyrate around while looking desirable. Actresses have gotten in on the gig plenty of times, too, of course—who can forget Kim Basinger’s turn in Tom Petty’s “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” Gwyneth’s cameo in Melissa Etheridge’s “I Want to Come Over,” or Alicia Silverstone’s entire Aerosmith oeuvre? But this week, we’ve got models on the brain, thanks to George Michael’s latest release, “White Light,” in which he shares screen time with Kate Moss (and one very strong wind machine). This is not Moss’ first rodeo; the original waif has appeared in videos for Johnny Cash, the White Stripes, and Primal Scream—and her experience shows: Kate has the nonchalant, pouty sway down to an art, which we imagine is only slightly vexing to the members of Michael’s original model-filled video for his 1990 hit “Freedom.” That cinematic experience just so happens to top our greatest “models in music videos” hit list, which is just a click away.
