K-pop stars not only have great skin, they kill it in fashion as well. They're no strangers to being flown in by brands just to watch their fashion shows abroad, and a handful have even become official faces of major fashion houses. Talk about being multi-talented and #blessed.
Here are our top picks for the most stylish K-pop stars that you need to know:
1. G-Dragon of BigBang
A list like this is never complete without the one and only G-Dragon, so let's start with him. This Big Bang member is already one of Karl Lagerfeld’s most recognizable faces for Chanel (plus points for repping the Asian community!) and has been on the cover of Vogue Korea for several anniversary issues. He's usually seen in flashy, androgynous outfits paired with his stellar choices of hair color, and we have yet to see another K-pop star of his caliber.
2. Key of SHINee
Another favorite of designers, Key of the group SHINee is perhaps the epitome of elevated street style. He is usually seen wearing statement pieces like Moschino’s McDonald’s inspired shirt with his daily staples like the Saint Laurent classic duffle bag. Key wouldn’t be caught dead in a typical jeans-and-shirt combo. He always dresses to impress whenever he's off to the airport, and boy does he succeed. No wonder he was invited to see Issey Miyake, Rick Owens, and many others at Paris Men's Fashion Week. He's even done a clothing collaboration with the Korean brand Beyond Closet.
3. Victoria of f(x)
Victoria is the representative of elegant edgy fashion from her group, f(x). She’s usually spotted in all black, but the dancer-actress knows how to shake it up with genderless silhouettes and unique outerwear. We can’t even blame her for constantly sitting front row in fashion shows along with her good friend Key and for being featured monthly in magazines like In Style Korea, Cosmopolitan Korea, and landing a cover on Harper’s Bazaar China.
Her signature eyeliner is easily one of the most recognizable K-pop star makeup looks out there. CL initially went to America to work on her solo album, but her presence in fashion got her the most attention. She was already known in Korea for her scene-stealing style and notorious bad girl edge, knowing no limits with her outfits and music. So no one was surprised when she added being a Maybelline girl and Alexander Wang’s new face to her resume.
Hyuna can not only dance her way into headlines; she also turns heads with her style. She runs the streets with her chic combinations and to-die-for footwear choices every time she turns up. We've honestly never seen someone combine cute and sexy concepts so well. We're glad to see her as a mainstay in Korean fashion authorities like W Korea, Elle Korea, and Ceci magazine.
