Following on the heels of Secret and SNSD’s comebacks is the inevitable comeback of Wonder Girls. Recently released are their comeback teaser pictures, showing the girls to have adopted a more mature, dark, and sexy look. This is nothing new or outstanding, other Kpop girl groups having done the same thing. Dark and sexy seems to be very popular this fall. In-keeping with their past retro themes, Wonder Girls have finally worked through the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and into the 90s. Now, I personally find the 90s to be lost era fashion-wise, but there are some acceptable looks from that decade, and Wonder Girls seem to be working them fine.
The velvet, one-shoulder mini dresses with the lace cutouts call back to a decade ago when velvet and cut-outs were all the rage. In typical Kpop fashion, the girls wear matchy outfits with subtle differences. However, the girls do look stunning, though I’m not sure why they chose to hold old-fashioned pistols. Wouldn’t newer pistols fit better with their look?
Alright, what is with this hairstyle? I first saw something like it at the VMA Awards when Lady Gaga decided to arrive as a very creepy-looking man. Then, SNSD’s Seohyun donned this horrendous look in “The Boys” music video. Now Sunye’s stylists are giving it a try. This hairstyle should’ve stopped at Lady Gaga. It does not look good. It’s distracting and bizarre and hinders Sunye’s beautiful face and otherwise acceptable outfit.
What do you think of Wonder Girls’ comeback? Which look is your favorite?
