Confirmed: Duran Duran do 'Freedom'-inspired supermodel video

Friday 10 June 2011 00:00

According to several reports, the British band has been busy shooting the music video to upcoming single "Girl Panic," starring 'original supermodels' Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, and Helena Christensen as well as singer Simon Le Bon's wife Yasmin.

The casting for the clip - directed by Jonas Ackerlund, who was also behind Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi," for instance - is reminiscent of George Michael's iconic " Freedom" video from the 1990s that featured Campbell, Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, and Tatjana Patitz.

Shot in London, the new video depicts the models as a girl group, fashion blog Fashionologie reports, and also features designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana who posted pictures from the shoot, which also yielded a fashion series and cover for British Harper's Bazaar, on his Tumblr.
