Duran Duran - Le Bon's Rio Suit Stolen

DURAN DURAN singer SIMON LE BON no longer has the iconic suit he wore in the promo for the band's hit RIO - it was stolen by a mystery thief.
The group famously danced onboard a yacht in the Caribbean while wearing pastel-coloured Antony Price suits in the video, which has become one of the most well-known promos in MTV history.
But Le Bon has long since parted with his garish yellow two-piece - it was stolen during the 1990s.
He tells rock magazine Q, "I haven't seen that suit for two decades. It got nicked (stolen). That was the 'banana' suit. I used to give all my suits names. Some men give their penis a name, I used to name my suits."
