George Michael - George Michael still has Faith jeans
George Michael still has the jeans he wore in his famous 'Faith' video but hasn't worn them ''for a long time''.
George Michael still has the jeans he wore in his famous 'Faith' video.
The 50-year-old singer wore a pair of ripped denim trousers with a leather jacket and black sunglasses for the 1987 video and has revealed his father Jack Panos still has the garments at his house.
George said: ''My mum used to keep things like that and now my dad's got them. They were jeans I'd had for ages, so the rips were genuine. I wore them so much that they started to fall apart - I used to ask my mum to sew them.''
The 'Careless Whisper' singer hasn't worn the pants for a ''long time'' but insists he's planning on digging them out next time he visits his father and says the clothing was his idea because he couldn't afford a stylist.
He continued: ''The whole 'Faith' image was totally me - I came up with the idea and I put the look together, leather jacket and everything. I didn't use a stylist - in fact I don't think I could have afforded one. It worked, though, and I think it was quite a cool image.''
The video was a huge hit and George's fashion sense inspired pop culture in the late 1980s but he claims it wasn't intentional.
He added in an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''I remember after that video, Vivienne Westwood wanted to make clothes for me - I couldn't believe that one of the engineers of the punk image thought I was cool enough for that.''
