Say what you will about Victoria’s Secret models — those girls know how to be comfortable in their skivvies. Former NYLON Creative Director and perennial Angel Helena Christensen recently launched a lingerie line for UK brand Triumph, and has a few tips for her customers on how to rock the barely-there look, even if you’re not doing it in front of an audience of millions.
Who knew this A-list actress was such a whiz on the other side of the camera?
Duran Duran’s much anticipated and highly teased video for their latest single, “Girl Panic” is finally here and, as promised, it stars a quintet of ’90s supermodels: Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, Naomi Campbell, and Yasmin Le Bon (who is, it should be noted, married to frontman Simon). In a cute twist, the supers all play members of the band, with Campbell as Le Bon and Christensen stealing the show as hard-partying drummer Roger Taylor.
Rockstars and supermodels go together like peanut butter and Oreos, so it’s no surprise to us how excited the fashion industry has been about some of the original 90s supermodels starring in a new music video for Duran Duran. The video hasn’t been released yet, but a new spread in Harper’s Bazaar UK has a good idea of what the final product will look like.
Rag & Bone is debuting a new set of images for its DIY Project, and they might be even cooler than the last ones.
As slow as August is, it is good for one thing: tons and tons of September issue rollouts. Today we have some international editions that are chock full of supermodels. But which one is best?
Last month, we heard reports that Naomi Campbell was rounding up all her supermodel friends for an early ’90s inspired music video shoot. Allegedly the brainchild of Yasmin Le Bon, wife of Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon, the group apparently reunited in Cannes during the festival to talk details — and now, courtesy of Stefano Gabbana (who else?), we’ve got photo evidence that it’s most definitely happening.
Would you walk a runway that’s end is nowhere to be seen? For 220 models scheduled to take part in Copenhagen Fashion Week, answering “no” is not an option. Within the week of August 11-15, Copenhagen will boast what’s called the “World’s Greatest Catwalk” for a fashion show that will take place on Saturday, August 14, on the pedestrian street of Strøget. Models will have to pack a pair of heavy-duty Dr. Scholls insoles for their trip, because the “greatest catwalk” is a mile long!
