Although the lyrics for ‘Too Funky’ are not about fashion, the concept for the video was inspired by a Thierry Mugler benefit fashion show. The costumes for ‘Too Funky’ were created by Thierry Mugler and George Michael donated the song, and all its royalties, to the project Red Hot + Dance, which raised money for AIDS awareness.
The video features George Michael in short shots as a director filming supermodels walking the catwalk. The models featured in this video include Eva Herzigova, Linda Evangelista, Nadja Auermann, Emma Sjöberg, Estelle Hallyday, Shana Zadrick, Tyra Banks, Beverly Peele, and Emma Balfour. As well, actresses Julie Newmar and Rossy de Palma, and performance artists Joey Arias and Lypsinka are also featured.
