Why Is Duran Duran Fashionable?

Jun 10, 2011 By Amy

First their hit “Girls On Film” was used for  a Vogue Paris shoot and video, then the band was in L’Uomo Vogue and Paper and now rumors are circling the web that Duran Duran is producing a not-so-seceret supermodel filled video for their song, “Girl Panic.”

Models Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, and Yasmin LeBon (the lead singer’s wife) along with fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana all gathered earlier this week in London for some sort of photo/video shoot. Allegedly Harpers Bazaar UK is also involved in this very covert operation. Too bad someone should’ve told Twitter loving Stefano Gabbana that the gathering is supposed to be a surprise because the designer shared a sleuth of TwitPics from the shoot which partially confirm suspicions by the media.

I’m not puzzled that all of this happening… I’m perplexed as to why the eighties band is taking the fashion industry by storm? Is it because the lead singer’s wife is a well-known model? Or is there something I’m missing here? I know neon is a big trend right now, but does this mean we’re all going to be wearing hotpants and rockin’ big hair again? I sure hope not.

Share your thoughts on Duran Duran’s fashion resurgence.

    Amy, use your head! The fashion industry is something the members of Duran2 are all too familiar with. Sure, it doesn’t hurt that Simon LeBon’s wife is a supermodel too. These guys have always been at the forefront of fashion! All they are doing is applying their updated musical style and fashion sensibilities to their new video. If there is something to be taken from this is that more people will be exposed to and will be listening to new Duran2 music. Mainstream can use a refresher and should adopt the modern-retro sounds of “All You Need Is Now”, by Duran2. Let’s face it: the world needs Duran2 MORE THAN EVER!

    You might not be puzzled, or perplexed if you had listened to their music easily the best out there.
