Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon was often accused of being a snob. "I'm not a snob," he once declared. "Ask anybody. Well, anybody who matters."
[After seeing model Yasmin Parvaneh on a magazine cover one day, Le Bon called her agency and asked her for a date. "Who does he think he is?" one observer joked. "A rock star?" (They were later married.)]
