Taeyang, G-Dragon, and More: A Guide to the Style Stars of K-Pop

Of all the street-style stars to descend on Paris in the past few weeks , some of the flossiest — and most original — have been rapper G-Dragon and singer Taeyang, of South Korea's beloved boy band Big Bang. Spottedin the front rowat most of the bigger couture shows and fall menswear shows , they caused a general spectacle with their penchant for bejeweled bolerosandmulti-colored hair. 

This is the first time G-Dragon has appeared at Fashion Week since a brief, pink-haired appearance in 2012 , but Taeyang has been on a roll. He caused a frenzy with street-style photographers last summer in Paris, attending the men's shows with a foot-high faux-hawk and kilts of tartan-plaid and bandana-print (with matching bank-robber face-gear). G and Tae have a mutual distaste for rules regarding color, fit, or gender. To that end, during the shows in Paris, the boys greeted many admirers, including Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel , Alber Elbaz at Lanvin, and Carine Roitfeld at Saint Laurent.
But the Bangers aren't the only K-Pop stars making the street-style rounds.Blogs like K World Style Kpopstarz , and K-Fashionista breathlessly chronicle the looks of the genre'sbest-dressed, including an ever-popular "Airport Style" feature — because unlike a good third of all U.S. celebs, you'll never see a member of 2NE1 slogging through LAX in ratty flip-flops and Christian Audigier leggings. Click through our slideshow for a primer on the K-Pop street-style clan’s best and brightest.
