Digitalistic video: Girl Panic!

The Topmodels as Duran Duran © Stephanie Pistel for Harper's Bazaar

During the topmodel-era in the early nineties, artists made a habit of filling their music videos with Naomi’s, Cindy’s, Helena’s, Eva’s…etc. I guess George Michael was the record-holder – he managed to put them all together in a video (Freedom)- but iconic rock band Duran Duran were actually the first to use models in their clips (Simon LeBon even married one of them). Now they’re pulling the same trick two decades later with a 9 minutes short film in collaboration with Swarovski Elements. The video for ‘Girl Panic’, directed by Jonas Akerlund features the 5 topmodels who made a body switch with the band’s members (except for Yasmin LeBon, she’s an anonymous guitarplayer).

Antidote magazine’s tribute to shoes…

Women have a complex relationship with shoes. We love to hate them. We love them because all women fit in designer shoes, in contrary to designer clothing (remember Toni Colette’s line in the movie ‘In her Shoes’?), but we often suffer while wearing them, which also makes us hate them. Oh well, ‘Il faut soufrir pour être belle’ like the French would say. We bet you’ll forgive the designer beauties once you put them on your feet. Don’t forget that these divine objects give you height and elegance.

Superb magazine Antidote‘s second theme issue is a wonderful tribute to shoes. More about this soon….Watch the teaser-video after the jump. Fashion Photographer and special contributor to this issue, Giampaolo Sgura’s view on shoes…>>>
