The Girl in the KajaGooGoo Too Shy Video

April 22, 2011

The Girl that was ‘Too Shy’


I guess that if you are reading this article, you are probably a Kajagoogoo fan, and will have almost certainly at one time or another seen the promotional video for Kajagoogoo’s debut hit ‘Too Shy’  Just in case you haven’t, here it is.

Video courtesy of emimusic:

I always wonder who the people are that make it into pop videos.  Sometimes, it’s easy – ‘Ooh to be Ah’ had appearances from both comedian Kenny Everett and television actor Christopher Timothy.  Other artists have really embraced this idea, with the likes of Eddie Murphy, Naomi Campbell, Chevy Chase, Steven Spielberg and Daryl Hannah all appearing in high-profile music videos at one time or another.

So, who was the girl in the ‘Too Shy’ video?  Well, she is Canadian model and friend of Limahl, Carolyn ‘Ali’ Espley.


The video was directed by Simon Milne, who has also directed pop promos for Duran Duran, The Human League, Spandau Ballet, Elton John, and Bananarama to name but a few.

Ever wonder where our ‘too shy’ girl is now?  Well, Espley is now married to American comedian, actor, and all-round television personality Dennis Miller.  She lives in Santa Barbara,California, with Miller and their two sons.

This is how she looks 2011 style….


Pictured with husband Dennis Miller…..

Maybe she could star in Kajagoogoo’s next video??

    Dennis – I think you married up. I mean, I love you on KSKY and listen every night but damn… She is still your better half! No disrespect intended but hey, gotta call it like it is. What you have in intellect she definately has in beauty. (no disrepect intended – I am sure as your wife she MUST be stacked upstairs). haha. Well done Dennis – well done.

    Just happened upon this after watching that video all those years ago. I just sat around waiting to see this video on MTV partly because I loved the song but mostly because she was so hot! Also I totally agree with one of the other posters – she’s definitely still hot today! 🙂

    (BTW, If you haven’t listened to his radio show, you should).
