Naomi Campbell - Supermodels Play Duran Duran In New Video

Supermodels Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen and Cindy Crawford have dressed up as 1980s icons Duran Duran for the band's new video.
The group of catwalk stars also includes Eva Herzigova and Yasmin Le Bon, wife of Duran Duran frontman Simon, and they are seen wearing the band's trademark suits and playing instruments in the promo for Girl Panic!
The shoot was conducted in conjunction with Harper's Bazaar magazine and directed by Jonas Ackerlund, who worked on Lady Gaga's Paparazzi and Telephone videos.
Duran Duran keyboardist Nick Rhodes explains, "Harpers had approached us about collaborating with the magazine on something really special... I'd had had this crazy idea for a video for the song Girl Panic! that looked fantastic on paper but that I thought in reality would be impossible to pull off.
"The idea was to recreate a day-in-the-life of the band, with five of the world's greatest supermodels playing all of us. (They) loved the idea of doing a cover shoot within the video itself - and so it all began."
Singer Simon Le Bon adds, "We have made some pretty ambitious videos over the years, but this one was certainly the most challenging to date.
"Co-ordinating the schedules of five of the world's biggest supermodels, Jonas, and the band was no easy task - but we couldn't be happier with the finished film. It has all of the ingredients that we feel are important - it's humorous, glamorous, sexy and very Duran Duran."
