Duran Duran have had tenacious, three-decade long staying power with their danceable musicianship, sing-along choruses and their celebration of glamour and glitz. Their latest video “Girl Panic!” (below) captures the essence of Duran Duran, along with their irreverent humor.
In it, the band cleverly cast a host of supermodels (all of whom have been in their vids before) that live out the hedonistic rock and roll lifestyle at London’s legendary Savoy hotel, with champagne, hot groupies, awesome fashion and paparazzi. Naomi Campbell plays lead singer Simon Le Bon, Cindy Crawford plays bassist John Taylor, Eva Herzigova is keyboardist Nick Rhodes, Helena Christensen is drummer Roger Taylor, while Yasmine Le Bon takes a turn as their unnamed guitarist. The real members of Duran Duran appear as supporting staff (bellhops, waitstaff, chauffeurs and press), and Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana even make cameos as fashion editors.
Amazingly, the group of supermodels also appears on Harper’s Bazaar UK for December.
