Harlem Shake: the supermodel edition

Internet dance craze goes high fashion

Gangnam Style is so 2012. Now, it’s all about the Harlem Shake.

ELLE has been somewhat obsessed by the new YouTube dance craze since we saw Jourdan and Cara do it backstage at Sunday’s Topshop Unique show at London Fashion Week, thereby making it – to slip into Rihanna terminology – legit.

The basics of the move are thus: one person, usually masked or hooded, is dancing in a room full of people standing still and not paying attention. Then the bass drops, and the whole room joins in.


Watch the model BFFs demonstrate below.

Eat your heart out, PSY.
