Boys of Fashion Week

Fashion's other J-Wu presents boys dancing and lip-synching to Elvis Presley.

Justin Wu's model boys aren't just pretty faces. They may specialise in striking a killer Blue Steel and live in an all-model apartment filled with large mirrors and single bunk-beds, but they can also lip-synch, play the ukelele, capoeira and spin-kick to Elvis Presley's A Little Less Conversation.

The fashion photographer and filmmaker's latest offering is a 3.34 minute extravaganza of razor-sharp cheekbones, sweeping fringes, ripped chests, clicking fingers, pretty clothes, twirling rollerskates, synchronised dances and lots of air instruments. Just like his videos from previous seasons, it plays into what everyone dreams the sprightly energy of fashion week might be like, and contradicts the hard lessons learned by anyone who has actually attended one. Long lines are replaced by line dancing, sore stiletto-clad feet by tapping Chuck Taylors, and there's even a celebratory party bus instead of the dilapidated bus that breaks down halfway across town making you late for the next show.

Forget about the fact that most of these boys probably weren't born until Elvis had already been dead for nearly two decades and enjoy the video below.
