The eighties gave us supermodels, and they gave us Duran Duran. Fast-forward to 2011 and they’re all making headlines again. The band recruited five über-supers for a video for “Girl Panic!,” its new single off the album All You Need Is Now, released earlier this year. In the nine-minute clip directed by Jonas Akerlund (the Grammy Award winner behind Lady Gaga’s “Telephone”) and made in collaboration with Swarovski Elements, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, and Yasmin LeBon play Simon, John, Nick, Roger, and an “anonymous guitarist,” while the real members of the group appear as bellhops, waiters, chauffeurs, and paparazzi. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana even make cameos as Harper’s Bazaar U.K.‘s guest editors during a photo shoot scene, images from which can be found in that magazine’s actual December issue. “It’s all daft stuff, but it’s fantastic daft stuff,” says John Taylor in a “making of” video that Style.com is debuting exclusively here. Check back on Tuesday, November 8, for our interview with Nick Rhodes and the complete music video.
Today we published a preview of Carine Roitfeld’s new book Irreverent, which Rizzoli is releasing in mid-October. Roitfeld watchers will recall many of the images we’ve posted. There’s Carine as arch provocateur, staging a portrait of the luminous Eniko Mihalik with an octogenarian’s hands, and another with a nude model sipping from an enormous bottle of Chanel eau de cologne. And then there’s Carine in career-maker mode. We’ve included her first shoots with Crystal Renn and Lara Stone, both of whom owe no small part of their fame to the visionary editor in chief of Paris Vogue. “I love how she’s almost naked here,” Roitfeld says of the Terry Richardson-lensed shot of Stone. “It seems like a good beginning.”
To my eyes, the most striking shots depict Roitfeld combining both instincts. I’m talking about Eva Herzigova playing a butcher for a Mario Testino portfolio in The Face circa 1997. Nothing says man-eater quite like a gorgeous blonde with a bloody pile of gnawed bones in her lap. Roitfeld has included a thank-you note from the model alongside the spread. “The ‘Butcher’ story we did gave me the chance to be seen and understood as a model with a much vaster potential…” writes Herzigova. “I had this pin-up label attached to me for so long that it seemed impossible to shed it. Thanks to your and Mario’s imagination you helped me to be liberated from this.”

Eva Herzigova is expecting her second child. Given the current yen for nineties supes and all models’ abilities to look better with a baby bump, she may also be due for a new campaign. [People]
Tween alert #1: Lyric analysts have been quick to point out that Taylor Swift’s newest single is most likely a brokenhearted diatribe to John Mayer. To which we say: Ew. [Jezebel]
Tween alert #2: Willow Smith, progeny of Jada and Will, is primed to blow Bieber, Cyrus, Gomez, et al. out of the proverbial pop star water. And she’s only nine. [People]
Browns has been an English institution for four decades now. Mrs. B isn’t one to let an occasion like that go under-celebrated. For the store’s 40th anniversary, the pioneering retailer—who brought Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Sonia Rykiel to England and was an early booster of Hussein Chalayan and Marios Schwab—put together an exhibition, opening tomorrow, of 40 Browns “ambassadors” in finery pulled from its archives. Paolo Roversi shot Marc Jacobs in Halston (above), Eva Herzigova in Mark Fast, and Ann Demeulemeester in her own collection (both below), among many others. And as for Mrs. B herself? The lady chose Marni for her close-up (bottom, left). Continue Reading “If Only All Ambassadors Dressed Like This” »
