On July 6th, Korean band, 2NE1's new music video for their song I LOVE YOU was released.
For any of you who aren't aware, I am obsessed with Korean pop. Recently, Kpop has been taking the music and fashion world by storm. Designers love it, producers love it and a Korean group, Big Bang won MTV's EMA 2011 award for 'Worldwide act' even beating Britney Spears to the prize!
2NE1 are an all-girl group whose jaw-droppingly style and attitude have charmed the likes of Jeremt Scott and Will.i.am. They're all about empowerment and independence; like a more fashionable reincarnation of the Spice Girls. These girls are always dressed to kill in their videos and designers throw their most lavish of clothes and jewelry at them. Jealous much?
Today I wanted to break-down my favourite outfit of the video, worn by Dara's (here on the left).

After some snooping, I think I managed to piece together Dara's oufit.
|You could probably put down a deposit on a house for the cost of this outfit!|
Dara's "dress" is actually two pieces from Cavalli's s/s12 RTW collection, worn with a vintage Versace belt, which is then matched with another vintage Versace piece; a Medusa link bracelet. She's also super lucky to be wearing one of Giza's pieces from their S/S12 collection (which are a nightmare to get hold of) and the outfit is set off with a simple pair of Wang heels.
Can I be the 5th member of 2NE1 please?
If you're new to 2NE1 or are already a fan, what do you think of this song and their outfits?
