The world’s top supermodels including Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova and Yasmin LeBon gathered in London last week to shoot new music video for Duran Duran. The video is for Duran Duran’s new track called “Girl Panic”. Directed by Jonas Ackerlund who also produced Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” video and the Kate Moss Dior Addict Commercial, the video is set to be serialized virally online before premiering in whole later this year.
According to online reports published on Fashionologie and Styleite the video was filmed in central London “at a posh hotel,” with Crawford riding in the back of a Rolls Royce and the supermodels performing as the band. Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were also on the set, which doubled as a cover shoot for Harper’s Bazaar UK.
Stefano Gabbana posted a series of photos to his Tumblr of him with supermodels Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, and Yasmin Le Bon.
Duran Duran confirmed the video shoot on their Facebook page, writing: “So next Monday and Tuesday (June 6/7) Duran Duran will be filming a vid for “Girl Panic!”, directed by none other than Jonas Akerlund…and to confirm, supermodels flying in to appear in the video…Stay Tuned!” On Monday, they wrote: “more from [band member] JT: “Don’t get too excited, but we’re on the set with Cindy C, Helena, Yasmin, Eva and … Naomi is in the Presidential Suite”
