The online men’s magazine GQ.com says today:

❏ “After 30 years the perennially stylish supergroup Duran Duran are still producing the goods, with new Mark Ronson-produced album All You Need Is Now joining the likes of Notorious and Rio as essentials in any man’s collection.”

❏ Nick Rhodes says “Our original manifesto has been to collaborate with fashion, art, photography, design and architecture. I guess I’ve always thought of Duran Duran as a kind of ongoing art project.”

❏ GQ.com highlight “The supermodel power summit: bringing together Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, and Helena Christensen with director Jonas Akerlund for the upcoming video for Girl Panic!”
