Duran Duran Swim In A Sea of Supermodels In Their New Video

Watch Video

Duran Duran are kind of one of the original pin-up boy bands, so it makes sense that for their newest video, “Girl Panic,” they’d team up with a bunch of actual pin-ups. DD frontman Simon Le Bon and the gang called up a few of their leggy supermodel friends — including Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, and and Le Bon’s wife Yasmin — to star in the clip, which will officially premiere this month. I love how keyboardist Nick Rhodes explains how Le Bon came up with the video idea, as if having a bunch of beautiful models in tiny outfits strut around and pretend to be the band is somehow high concept. Whatever, we’ll definitely be watching. [Styleite.com]

Supermodel Lindsey Wixson Was Teased, Too


Seventeen-year-old Lindsey Wixson is one of the modeling world’s biggest sensations, but life wasn’t always Gucci, Prada, and miles of stark white runways. Before she broke big on the pages of W magazine, Wixson says she was bullied by girls in her class, who made fun of her for her gap teeth and height. “I actually had a group of girls who made a list of things they didn’t like about me,” she claims. But despite the early taunts, Wixson says she’d still like to return home to her native Kansas sometime soon because she misses her parents. “They keep me grounded,” she says.

Gemma’s Return: Why Even Announce “Retirement” If You Can’t Stick To It?

Random rant: why do celebs make such a big deal about announcing “retirement” only to un-retire months later? Publicity stunt? A heated “eff-you” move that reverses itself once they cool down?

Supermodel Gemma Ward, 22 (ahem), marks the latest in comebacks—or something to that effect. Her agency recently announced Ward’s official retirement after everyone started to realize that she’d been missing from the mags and catwalks of late. The rumored reason for the young model’s departure? A desire to escape the industry’s pressure of body issues. (Noble cause.) It looks like this announcement wasn’t even a PR screw-up, but possibly just a vocabulary issue. Gemma herself posted on her Twitter page: “I’m content with my decision, but I have said nothing will be permanent.” OK, seriously? You make the “decision” to retire … you know that’s supposed to be permanent? Then this week she told an Australian newspaper that she hasn’t quit the business.

Does everything have to be so black and white with A-listers? Why not just say you’re taking some time off? What’s that? Oh, so you say there’s big money in a comeback … Aha! [Stylelist.com] Keep reading »

10 Suggestions For Gemma Ward’s Retirement Plans

This just in: Supermodel Gemma Ward’s agent has officially announced that the Australian catwalk queen has retired from the fashion industry! if you’ve noticed, there hasn’t been much of Gemma lately; she’s been absent from magazine covers and, more notably, the past few runway seasons. The reason for her departure? She wasn’t as into modeling “following the death of Heath Ledger, to whom she was romantically tied.” So, yeah, now she’s headed for retirement, at the ripe old age of 22. (Twenty-two!) But word on the web is that her life away from the catwalk is really making a healthy difference. “She was photographed last week in New York wearing a print jacket, shorts and biker boots and looking more like a healthy young woman and less like an emaciated wraith.” (Jeez, harsh much?)

While, I could go on for paragraphs about how frickin’ jealous I am that she can even afford (both financially and career-wise) to give it all up, it’s more fun (and less woe-is-me-sad-sack) to play the what-will-she-do-next game! My very strategic guesses, after the jump. Keep reading »
