I knew I was going to fall in love, but I’m pretty sure I’m now ready to have kids with this video.

Caps over. Still excited. For yers, there was no expectation in my mind – whatsoever – that Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen and Yasmin Le Bon would ever end up in a photoshoot together. Amazingly, years past the ‘supermodel era’, Harper’s Bazaar UK have them on the cover!
The nineties legends are posing to promote the upcoming debut of Duran Duran‘s music video for “Girl Panic” in which the five supermodels have been cast as the actual band (not such a stretch, as Yasmin is married to Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon).
Girl Panic‘s director, Jonas Akerlund (best recognised for his direction in Lady Gaga’s videos for Paparazzi and Telephone), also shot the spread, hinting that the whole enchilada is going to be exceptionally fashion-packed.
The World’s Greatest Catwalk (literally?) will take place on the pedestrian street in the centre of Copenhagen, Strøget after transformed into one long runway where 220 models will walk 1 mile (1.609 km) and beat the world record for the longest catwalk ever.
Denmark’s own Helena Christensen has been announced as the ‘patroness’ and will open the event/game/show with a speech. Expect over 500 fashion brands and a decent amount of fur. It’ll probably be worth paying attention to for the fact that a) someone is bound to fall, b) someone if bound to protest violently, and c) the runway will be pink.
