Duran Duran’s “Girl Panic” Video Brings Supermodels Back


You know how much I love the original supermodels, and who better to bring them back with song than Duran Duran? Well Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, and Yasmin Le Bon are back in this great nine minute epic of a music video shot at the Savoy Hotel in London. Also check out the cameos of the band (who are playing other people), Dolce and Gabbana, and the Harper’s Bazaar UK cover shoot.

Thank You Ondo Lady!

Last week I did a post called What Is Your Favorite Super Memory? I want to thank all of the readers who commented on that post. I think it is great to look back at a time when fashion was fun, even fanciful. Fashion today is kind of dark and business like. It is basically more about the bottom line instead of art, but I think the girls of Rodarte, Alexander Wang, and others are changing things again. Models are becoming popular again too. Hopefully they don’t overshadow the designers like last time and bring us back into the dark ages. BLAH!

Enough of my rant. What I wanted to say was… thanks Ondo Lady,from The Musings of Ondo Lady, for spurring my memory with this comment:

My favorite memory of the supermodels was at the Versace show when Naomi, Cindy, Linda and Christy came down the runway miming to the George Michael song, Freedom. Now that was a moment and I doubt if we will see anything like that again.

How could I forget? Well I found a video clip of that exact moment. The video is about 9 mins of awesome fashion moments. Watch all of it to see how the models used to walk a show, or skip all the way to the 6:09 mark and behold the day that most people say the Super was born.

I recently did a guest blogging post for the Demoiselles on body image. The post is scheduled to go up today. Please check it out. I wrote from the heart, and I think their body image series is a great read for everyone.

What Is Your Fondest Super Memory?

Can you remember the first time you heard about/or saw the Supers? Do you remember all of their names? Who was your favorite and why? Do you mourn the loss of the supermodel, or do you think the newest batch of models are supermodels? If so, who? Is Giselle a supermodel? I would love to see your comments.

You all know I love the Supers something fierce, so imagine my surprise when I saw that Vogue had opened up their archives to release some photos of the Supers. These shot are beyond amazing, and most of them are very iconic and recognizable. Take a quick peek at these photographic gems.

And don’t forget to check out the shoot with Eva, Naomi, and Claudia in the August 2009 issue of Vogue Korea. Hot!
