Big Bang of Colors

If you know me personally, it's no surprise to you that I am in love with Korean Pop music and culture. My personal favorites would have to be Big Bang and 2NE1, both of which have new videos out with killer styling. Check 'em out for yourself!

First of all, I would like to say that the 'Lollipop' music videos are actually commercials for a phone (if you couldn't tell). 2NE1 actually debuted themselves as a group, not their first single, with Big Bang in the first 'Lollipop' MV last year. They are under the same record company, YG.

The first MV for 'Lollipop' was an instant hit in Korea and even caught the attention of notorious celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton. I instantly fell in love with the song, the clothes, the fierce bitches, and of course, SeungRi!

'Lollipop Part 1'

'Lollipop Part 2'

There is definitely not a lack of color in the 'Lollipop' MV's. NEON. FLUORESCENT. BRIGHT. ANTI MONOCHROMATIC. LAYERS. FLAMBOYANT. URBAN. FUN. All words I would use to describe the styling. G-Dragon is also one of my favorite gender benders and fashion icons. I've also obsessed about Dara's hair in part 1 as well...

Unfortunately, 2NE1 did not pair up with Big Bang for the 'Lollipop Part 2', instead they released their own video for their new single 'Try to Follow Me' which was released on the same day as Lady Gaga's 'Telephone'.

Ironically, their video has an exceptional mix of Lady Gaga and playfulness with a touch of Beyonce's 'Video Phone'. Tell me what you think! I am loving these looks in particular.

Also, CL's leopard print outfit is bananas! I would wear almost all of the following trends you've seen in the videos this year. If you keep up with Fashion Week and shows this season you know that neon and fluorescent colours the up and coming. Refer to Balenciaga, YSL, Versace, and Manish Arora. Splashes of bright, eye-catching colours gave these collections a pop. Now that it's Spring, and shortly soon after will be summer, don't be scared to bust out your flashy, colour riched pieces. If you live in extremely hot climates like myself, you know that wearing all black or dark colors during summer is a rookie mistake; so brights are your best friend. Just avoid looking like a traffic cone, or the fashion police just might have to take you downtown.
