‘After Live Aid, came charity fundraiser Fashion Aid at the Royal Albert Hall, the biggest, most spectacular international fashion show London has ever staged. With 20 +  great global designers (and The Emanuels) and a cast that included Freddie Mercury and pre-Kate & Naomi-era supermodels such as Grace Jones, Jerry Hall, Iman, Marie Helvin and er, Lily Savage among hundreds who walked in KH’s section. This cover by Bowie and Jagger (who wears KH in the video) was a massive hit that season. Their version is not a patch on the Motown original, but David and Mick were (and still are) synonmous with London style and the lyrics summed up the gettting-together-for-a-good-cause party vibe; so it was a no-brainer to pick this.’ Keith Barker-Main
