Girl Panic – Duran Duran
Wow! Duran Duran went HAM on this video. A band that’s been around for 30 years. Wow! I feel old. Anyways to go with the typical Duran Duran visuals, as they themselves mention, they were the first to use super models in their videos. Let me tell you there’s no shortage of models here. This video is amazing on so many levels. First of all let’s talk about the wardrobe, accessories and styling? Double wow. What world does this perfection exist? Because I need a passport. It can’t only be in a Duran Duran video? Everything in this video is beautiful. Is that possible? Also what about the crisp visuals?? There so much eye candy. Like who really wakes up in the Savoy surrounded by that? My jaw drops because to be bombarded by so much beauty can be nauseating. But Duran Duran’s didn’t take themselves seriously, poking fun at the drama Duran Duran has created over the years and overall just making a great entertaining video.
But “Girl Panic” doesn’t stop there, there is a plot. Sort of a plot, ultimately meant to be nostalgic and give way to memories of an era when the guys in Duran Duran were young and pretty and supermodels like Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Yasmin Le Bon and Helena Christensen were even younger and prettier. Those models appear in “Girl Panic!” and to the surprise of almost no one, they still look incredible. In fact, the only shock of all is that being married to swarthy Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon for a few decades has only served to make Yasmin Le Bon get even better as the years pass. Surely Oscar Wilde would have had an explanation for that.
