Ever since we peeped Harper's Bazaar UK's supermodel-adorned December issue, we've been waiting for the accompanying music FILM. Oh, yes, the '90s supes—namely Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova, and Yasmin Le Bon—were not only shot for the cover of the mag, they have a whole spread and it's all part of the MEGA (META) MUSIC VIDEO, "Girl Panic", for the MEGA BAND Duran Duran shot by video kingpin Jonas Akerlund. This nine minute explosion of fashion, music, and supAHmodel mayhem is finally here, and we've dissected it in its entirety. But before we begin, we have a little history to discuss…

Yes, these photos look slightly weird and out of place, and they should. They're from the '80s! It should be known that Duran Duran ORIGINATED the whole models starring in videos thing. At the beginning of their music career, they were well-known in Europe but had yet to break into the U.S. market, and it was their stylish videos (featuring models) which caught the eye of MTV, which was then in its infancy. MTV put Duran Duran's vids in heavy rotation, and the band and the network both experienced marked success. Videos for "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Rio" were gigantic hits and featured models frolicking in face paint, and the video for "Notorious" starred supermodel Christy Turlington. But the supes in "Girl Panic" take the notion to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL. They actually play the band and do some heavy duty acting, too, each one talking and behaving like their real-life band member counterparts (cue champagne parties, lounging on hotel carts, waking up outside on some steps, and whipping through the streets of London in a Rolls) while groupies in lingerie sleep all over things. This is LE ROCK and LE Roll, people, and we like it. Come take a look at all the decked-out debauchery…

No, you have not gone back in time, and no the biggest SUPERMODELS of the nineties have not started their own space-rock band. We're here to tell you that the SUPES have RETURNED!! In all their glorious model revelry! The December issue of Harper's Bazaar UK is making FASHION HISTORY (we'll get to this in a moment) with an all-supermodel cover featuring the biggest models of the grunge decade, namely Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Yasmin Le Bon, and Eva Herzigova dressed as Duran Duran. What makes this all so unprecedented is that this photo shoot is actually for a short film/music video for the band's new song, "Girl Panic," directed by Jonas Akerlund who did Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video (so you know it's gonna be something special). Also? These supermodels look RAD and are aging like fine wines.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
