Seen, Too: Naomi Campbell x Duran Duran in “Girl Panic”

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton

Caribbean beauty often seems to come in a one-two punch to the eye-parts these days and today the coup de grace is delivered by the finisher of all runway finishers; Naomi Campbell. In a nod to some of her icon-making music video moments from the 90s Naomi has gone and body-snatched Simon LeBon, assuming his identity for the new Duran Duran video “Girl Panic” and taking over London’s Savoy hotel with some good old-fashioned debauchery.

Toppa Top 10: Top 10 Caribbean Style Icons

Words by Jesse Serwer

Already proclaimed a “style icon” by Paper, Complex and, yes, even Okayplayer, Theophilus London has fashion brands tripping over themselves to work with him right now. Watching the Brooklyn-born Trinidadian rapper/singer’s ascension into full-fledged it bwoy, we can’t help but notice that he takes many of his stylistic cues from fellow Caribbeans, from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Fab Five Freddy and Harry Belafonte. Between Theophilus’ emergence and his fellow Trini Anya Ayoung-Chee‘s show-stealing on Project Runway, Caribbean style seems to be having a little moment right now, so it seemed like the perfect time to count down the most iconic practitioners of style from the islands and the Diaspora.

Venus in Black: Naomi Campbell x Interview Mag

Naomi-Campbell-by-Mert-Alas-Marcus-Pigott-Interview-October-2010-530x689

Ducked out of SOBs Thursday night to grab my usual DJ-dinner of power bar and  Vitamin Water from the bourgie deli on Varick street when who to my wondering eyes did appear than the one Ms. Naomi Campbell, high-beaming me from the cover of Interview magazine. As you may have noticed we are dedicated Naomi-watchers over here at LargeUp–whether she’s owning the runway or the witness stand at the World Court–but this particular spread gave us such a meal that our eye-cups almost ranneth over. I’m not sure whether she is answering or exploiting her recent controversies with these images of her in dominatrix mode, gal-handling a tatted up, artificially white boytoy. Personally, I like to think he symbolizes the fashion industry or possibly the media itself–which Naomi has just bitch-slapped into submission for daring to attempt an escape from her hypnotic gaze.
