04 November 2011 by

Don’t hate us but Grazia Daily is feeling pretty smug. Why? Well, this very site brought you the GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE! that Duran Duran’s latest music video will feature a gaggle of original supermodels — and at last we have the video proof...

Naomi Campbell as Simon le Bon for Duran Duran

While party-hopping in Cannes earlier this year, yours truly discovered that Yasmin Le Bon (wife of lead singer Simon) masterminded the genius plan and recruited her pro pouter pals — Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen AND Eva Herzigova — to star in the video for the band's upcoming single 'Girl Panic'. Wowee, what a super line-up! Cut to today and thanks to Duran Duran's YouTube channel, we’ve been treated to an amazing ELEVEN teasers. Hurrah!

So what have we seen thus far? Well, the fab five look fierce taking on the roles of the band members and performing as the supermodel version of Duran Duran. Yes, really! In Simon Le Bon-stylee, Naomi steps up to the mic in a white fur coat and chunky silver jewels, Cindy wears a pinstripe waistcoat with a glittering scarf as bassist John Taylor and Yasmin sports black flares as another guitarist, while Eva works a sharp white suit with a black shirt as keyboardist Nick Rhodes and finally, Helena rocks out as drummer Roger Taylor.

Throughout the tongue-in-cheek video, the Duranettes can be seen getting into the rock 'n' roll spirit as they frolick around The Savoy in London, partying in the halls with scantily clad ladies and rocking out in Dolce & Gabbana corsets before falling asleep in err, baggage carriers. These kids are cray-zee! And according to, the 'real' band members cameo as bellhops, waiters, chauffeurs and paparazzi while Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana pop up too, playing fashion editors during a photoshoot scene. Amazoid!

We also know that the video took two days to shoot and was directed by Jonas Ackerlund, the award-winning director behind that glossy Kate Moss for Dior Addict ad as well as Lady Gaga's 'Paparazzi' and 'Telephone' music videos. Indeed, we have every faith that it'll become a Grand Fashion Moment not unlike George Michael’s 1990 video for 'Freedom', which also featured Naomi and Cindy as well as Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington...
