#2011 Karlie Kloss, Hailey Clauson and Selita Ebanks spit mad rhymes in Justin Wu's new video



It's becoming a seasonal event: The day after the shows finish, Justin Wu debuts one of his girls (or boys) of Fashion Week videos and the blogosphere goes berserk. This time around – as he told me two weeks ago – it was filmed in collaboration with a "very big musical artist." What he didn't mention was that the musical artist holds the record for most number one records on the Billboard 200; co-owns the New Jersey Nets, Roc-A-Fella Records and Rocawear; and is married to Beyonce Knowles. Who better to cosign your New York Fashion Week film than the city's favourite son, Jay Z?

Featuring top girls like Karlie Kloss, Constance Jablonski, Selita Ebanks, Daphne Groeneveld and Hailey Clauson; up and comers like Australia's Claire Collins and my main mayn Jenny Albright; and even a New Zealander in the form of Leilani Momoisea (yes, rapper David Dallas' better half), Empire State of Mind is Justin's best work yet. The team was kind enough to allow me to shoot a bunch of behind the scenes photos while they were filming – I'll post them tomorrow. Until then, enjoy the ridiculously good looking gangsta madness. Holla!

I LIKE YOU!

I wish I liked it more...but it looks too much like a cheap YouTube vid more than a designer's work to me :(
