Video: Models Lip Sync To Jay-Z’s ‘Empire State Of Mind’

As those videos of models dancing awkwardly to Pitbull would attest, it’s fun to watch models do things that aren’t modeling, especially when those things make them look goofy, because I am a fat jealous hater enjoy seeing fashion models humanized. The clip’s director, professional model-knower Justin Wu (j/k, I don’t know what he does for a living but wouldn’t knowing models be a cool job?) has previously done lip dubs featuring male models, and now it’s the ladies’ turn. He managed to get an impressive list to participate, too. Via Youtube:

An ode to New York City starring: Selita Ebanks, Karlie Kloss, Constance Jablonski, Jourdan Dunn, Daphne Groeneveld, Edita Vilkeviciute, Hailey Clauson, Josephine Skriver, Zuzanna Bijoch, Shu Pei, Kristina Salinovic, Martha Streck, Toni Garrn, R’el Dade, Andi Muise, Ataui Deng, Chantal Stafford-Abbot, Kelsey Rogers, Ashton Phillips, Fabiana Mayer, Sabrina Nait, Sydney Edmonds, Claire Collins, Brenda Mutoni, Naoumie Ekiko, Sonia Niekrasz, Paris, Kaitlin, Lina, & Tian.

He appears to have given them all a bunch of…candy, or something, because who naturally gets that excited about a lip dub? I also think it’s funny when they point to McDonalds, because as if. (Related: that particular McDonalds was once my McDonalds as well! I mean, if I ate at McDonalds. I feel so much closer to Jay-Z now.)

Anyway, here is a model lip dub. I hope you enjoy it.

      It’s so nice to see models looking happy. They tend to look so mad and sickly on the runway.
