Fashion Stories That Took Off in 2011

2011/12/27 | 3841 views | Permalink | Source

What were the most popular fashion stories this year? Many fashion experts would put figure skating champion Kim Yu-na at the top of the list. She emerged as a fashion icon after her impressive presentation at the International Olympic Committee session in South Africa to support Pyeongchang's bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics. The black cape and white blouse with a big ribbon she wore in Durban became instant hits.

Stars' red carpet fashion also caused a lot of buzz this year. Actress Oh In-hye stirred controversy with her daring look at the opening ceremony of the Busan International Film Festival in October. She appeared in a risqué dress that revealed perhaps a little too much of her cleavage and made her an overnight Internet sensation.

Meanwhile, singer Jung Jae-hyung also became the talk of the town and grabbed the attention of netizens when he appeared on an MBC TV reality show "The Unlimited Challenge" wearing a white T-shirt with holes in it. Although Jung turned up on the show looking like he was wearing castoff clothing, it later turned out that the top was designed by a French luxury brand and cost around W450,000.

Also, Kim Bum-soo gained popularity for his unconventional fashion sense by showing up on MBC's "I Am a Singer" sporting a vest adorned with metal accessories. Far from putting viewers off, his tight-fitting outfit was quickly adopted by trendy men in their 20s or 30s.
