The legendary auction house Christie’s London, famed for selling incredible pieces of art recently sold George Michael’s personal art collection. With original works by Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, and Damien Hirst the entire collection sold for over £11 million.

It was one of Christie's most successful auctions, with the presale exhibition attracting a record number of visitors.

George Michael’s interest in beauty went beyond an appreciation of objet d'art, the late singer, songwriter curated a strong personal aesthetic throughout the ’80s and '90s that defined his great sense of style.

Michael’s love of fashion was prevalent in his work, evident with the music videos for Too Funky and Freedom. Freedom featured 90’s Supers’ Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington lip-syncing to the lyrics of the song, while Too Funky showed models dressed in head-to-toe Thierry Mugler.

At the start of his solo career while exploring a new musical direction Michael served some major looks. There's something that’s so appealing and relevant about Michael’s early style that still resonates today.

We pay homage by taking a look at the singers best outfits.
