One Night In Babylon
It’s more than 20 years since Bryan Adams’ (Everything I Do) I do it for you topped the UK charts for a record 16 weeks. Now the Canadian rocker/director/photographer is back with a new sound for his single Tonight in Babylon, in collaboration with LoverushUK. Directed by the man himself, the video was shot in London’s Babylon nightclub and follows a group of celebrity offspring and fashion kids getting ready for a night out. Now known for its high fashion parties, Babylon was previously the favoured weekend haunt of London’s club kids, where notorious club king Daniel Lismore hosted his legendary nights.
The new breed of fashion revellers featured in Adams’ video include Pussy Glamore lingerie founder Marissa Montgomery, model and DJ Tolula Adeyemi, Jack Norman – son of Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman - and Roman Polanski’s daughter Morgane. Too cool to need a stylist, the group finished off their own looks with jewellery by Kara Ross and Crow’s Nest, whose collections such as ‘Jungle Fever’ and ‘Deluxe Russian Grooves’ sound like they were made for the dance floor.
Perhaps in reaction to some of the more outlandish Gaga-esque styling of music videos recently, Adams’ cast remind us that dressing up and going out can be relaxed, personal and most of all, fun!
