Supermodel history was made this week in London: according to online reports, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova and Yasmin Le Bon – the original “supers” – reunited for a new Duran Duran music video.

Rumour has it that Yasmin, wife of Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, herded the girls together to shoot a video for the band’s new single, Girl Panic , a coup that recalls George Michael’s now iconic Freedom video.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana were involved in the shoot; Fashionista posted pictures from Stefano Gabbana’s Tumblr page of the supers in black corset dresses and leotards. Lucy Yeomans, the editor of Harper’s Bazaar , was also there to capture the “girls on film” for a cover shoot.
According to Yeomans’s Twitter account, the shoot went on until 3am and was such a success that Christensen sent her flowers the next morning. She tweeted to Simon Le Bon: “Just seen stills and they’re amazing. More champagne waiter…!”, before adding: “This has to have been one of the most extraordinary days of my life. A little bit of fashion history made!”
