The Tongue-Twisted ‘Lips of Babel’

Lips of Babel is videographer Elle Muliarchyk’s latest short and it’s composed entirely of models’ painted lips as they utter tounge-twisters in their native languages.

Done for UK-based shopping site Motilo, it’s definitely one of the coolest displays of model diversity I’ve seen in a while, which is probably exactly what Muliarchyk hoped to do in the 65 second clip. Benetton better step up their game!
