Lee Da Hae (이다해) styled her dress similar to Kim Gyuri (김규리), sans jewelries. A pair of brown sandals and gold clutch to complete her outfit.

Both of them looked absolutely stunning in the dress. I had a hard time contemplating who wore the dress better. I would have to give it to Kim Gyuri (김규리) as she was all smiles although Lee Da Hae (이다해) was acting in the drama.

She opted for a lace dress from Bottega Veneta Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Styling the dress with the same pair of open-toe pumps, Piaget jewelries and an up-do which was a refreshing change.

Escada and Bottega Veneta seems to be the only two brands in Tang Wei (汤唯)'s closet at the moment. While she looks beautiful in the dresses most of the time, I'm still waiting for her to impress me. Go out of your comfort zone, Tang Wei (汤唯)!

Having released 'Hate You' from their latest mini-album, the ladies of 2NE1 dropped a few teaser image from their upcoming single, Ugly.

In I Am The Best, the girls strutted their punk-outfits. Continuing in the similar fashion, the girls seem to put on a more playful "punk" outfits with garments from MishkaNYC, stylized as Мишка.

While I may not be a big fan of their outfits, you can't deny the girls are keeping their fashion choices interesting. Especially Park Bom (박봄)'s customized dress with graphics from various t-shirts. Out of the four, Sandara Park (박산다라) was my least favorite. Don't you think she looks a little like Travis Barker?

2NE1 also jumped onto the two-toned hair color bandwagon. Their outfits were styled with sneakers.
