Some girls have all the luck.
Not only are these ladies beautiful, tall and fashionable, but they're also music video muses. If you enjoyed the recent Victoria's Secret version of Katy Perry's "Firework," then check out our eight favorite videos featuring moonlighting supermodels -- from Naomi Cambpell, Kate Moss and Christy Turlington to a certain celebrated "Uptown Girl." (Disclaimer: you may want to hold onto your hats folks, some of these vids are a little racy! That's fashion for ya!)
George Michael: "Freedom '90"
If you're going to do something, do it right. That must have been George Michael's attitude in 1990, when he got the world's biggest supermodels -- Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Tatjana Patiz -- to appear seminude and lip-syncing his song on the small screen. The video, directed by "The Social Network"'s David Fincher, is an all-time classic.
Chris Isaak: "Wicked Game"
There is absolutely nothing hotter than Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game." The 1989 video, directed by legendary photographer Herb Ritts in black-and-white, shows Danish supermodel Helena Christensen frolicking topless on a Hawaiian beach with Chris, while he croons, "I don't want to fall in love with you." Some insider trivia: Although Helena and Chris were both shirtless during the shoot, clever camera angles conceal any actual nudity.
The White Stripes: "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself"
We bet Burt Bacharach never thought one of his songs would come to this -- and by this we mean Kate Moss pole-dancing to the White Stripes. Wearing nothing but black underwear and heels, the British model does her best stripper impression in this 2003 video directed by none other than Academy Award nominee Sofia Coppola. Seriously, only Sofia could make pole-dancing look classy.
Rihanna: "Te Amo"
Rihanna is pretty racy, but we bet you never expected to see her like this before! In her sultry 2010 video, French supermodel Laetitia Casta plays the Barbadian songbird's lover. The outfits range from a vibrant, colorful flower-print Mara Hoffman maxidress and black feathered corset for Rihanna, to a breast-baring black bustier and skinny pants for Laetitia, who tries to seduce the singer inside a French castle. There's success -- and a steamy make-out session -- with both women wearing bondage outfits in the final scene. (The video isn't "not safe for work," but still, you might want to wait until you get home.)
Billy Joel: "Uptown Girl"
The music video for Billy Joel's 1983 hit "Uptown Girl" is somewhat bittersweet, given that it stars his now ex-wife Christie Brinkley (the two married two years after shooting the video and divorced in 1994). Regardless, it's still fun to watch the two flirt on the small screen as mechanic Billy serenades "Uptown Cosmetics" model Christie, who's stylish in a black-and-white flower-print minidress, black pumps and a black, wide-brim hat. An awesome '80s dance sequence ensues, and as the video ends, Christie climbs onto the back of Billy's motorcycle and shakes out her lustrous blond locks. If only life were as easy as a music video! Bet you didn't know: Billy originally wrote this song for then-girlfriend Elle Macpherson!
Michael Jackson: "In the Closet"
The King of Pop had good taste when he chose the sexy Naomi Campbell to star in his 1992 video "In the Closet." In the sepia-tone piece, sexy peasant girl Naomi gets all up in Michael Jackson's grill, dancing very, very close to the singer. Although the video, directed by Herb Ritts, appears to be set in the Middle East, it was actually filmed at California's Salton Sea.
Duran Duran: "Notorious"
Believe it or not, Christy Turlington was a music video muse at the tender age of 16. Ed Burns' wife looked far more experienced than her young years in the 1986 video for Duran Duran's "Notorious" (you may recognize the song as a Notorious B.I.G. hit, but this is the original version). Model pal Yasmin le Bon convinced Duran Duran frontman and hubby Simon to cast Christy. Guess it helps to have friends in high places!
