In a rare runway moment Stella McCartney closed her autumn/winter show at Paris Fashion Week today with a heart-warming tribute to the late George Michael.

Instead of a traditional finale walk, the designer and Beatle’s daughter sent out an army of models singing and dancing to a remixed version of his song Faith.

The upbeat sing-a-long saw models raucously chanting the lyrics to George Michael’s iconic hit with coordinated dance moves to match.

A collection which celebrated Britishness, McCartney’s memorial was fitting for a figure that made such an impact on the fashion world and saw guests jumping to their feet and joining in.

A defining character in both the music and fashion industry, George Michael, who passed away at the age of 53 on Christmas Day last year, was well-known for his iconic style.

Not to mention his Freedom 1990 music video that lauded the likes of Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Tatjana Patitz joining Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell among its cast.
