Who was the model in Duran Duran's Ordinary World music video?
I believe the model for that shoot was Virginia Anne Douglas, a heartbreakingly beautiful woman who retired from the business at an early age (despite an abundance of offers). The video was shot in Huntington Beach Park, California and it's theme was a wedding (with Ms. Douglas as the tender goddess of a bride).

Duran Duran had many hit singles, but only two number ones each on the major charts: "Is There Something I Should Know" and "The Reflex" reached #1 on the British charts, and …"The Reflex" and "A View To A Kill" reached #1 on the American Hot 100. Some of their other top 40 hits: Their first album Duran Duran produced "Girls on Film" and "Planet Earth". Rio was a huge success with "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Rio" and "Save A Prayer". Seven and the Ragged Tiger was huge, probably the most popular album of 1983, with "The Reflex", "Union of the Snake" as well as "New Moon on Monday". In 1984 they released the live album Arena. In 1985 things took a nasty turn and they spilt. They formed two separate bands, John Taylor and Andy Taylor joined The Power Station and had hits with, "Some Like it Hot" and "(Bang a Gong) Get it On". Nick Rhodes, Simon Le Bon and Roger Taylor formed Arcadia and made an album called So Red the Rose which featured "Election Day" and "The Flame". In 1986 Simon Le Bon, John Taylor and Nick Rhodes went on as Duran Duran but two other members left. They released Notorious , which did excellent. "Notorious" and "Skin Trade" were major songs. They then released Big Thing , with "All She Wants Is" and "I Don't Want Your Love" which were big in the clubs but not so much on the Top 40 radio stations. The band has not broken up and continues making music, but not much of it reaches radio stations anymore. Astronaut , a 2003 album and tour reunited the original members of the band, and the single "Reach Up for the Sunrise" did well, but subsequent releases have continued to shine in obscurity.
