Super Models Become Duran Duran In New Short Film
Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jonas Åkerlund, this video reunites five of the world's top supermodels - Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Yasmin Le Bon with the members of Duran Duran in a day-in-the-life-of exposé, where the girls take on the roles of the members of the band and the guys are in the supporting cast as bellhops, waiters, chauffeurs and members of the press.
The short film, shot in and around The Savoy in London over two days earlier this summer. The five 'supers' bring their own style, irreverence and personality to the character of each band member, as Naomi Campbell steps up to the mic as lead singer Simon Le Bon, Cindy Crawford strikes a pose as bassist John Taylor, Eva Herzigova embodies keyboardist Nick Rhodes as the only blonde in the band, Helena Christensen rocks out as drummer Roger Taylor and Yasmin Le Bon makes a droll turn as 'the anonymous guitarist'. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana play Harper's Bazaar UK's guest fashion editors for the day during a photoshoot scene (still images from which form a 22-page cover story for the December issue of the magazine.)
