Asian cool

1028AiTWeb

How great does this girl look? I'd like to think that she's Shanghai as well. Use your imagination.

I am disgusted at fobby girl style. Because it's all this emulation, that somehow by clashing colours and wearing weird clothing, it's unique and new. No, it just looks like you dressed in the dark. I say that it's an emulation because its a viscious circle of copying, in Asia. Tokyo copies Europe, who is then copied by Hong Kong, who is then copied by Korea. Taiwan copies HK and Korea. Mainland China copies a combination of Tokyo, HK, Korea, and Taiwan, but doesn't do any of it well. Then you have the SouthEast Asian countries following. This trickling down isn't style, it's just mindless copying.

This girl is so refreshing because she's done up, and everything looks so clean. Interesting pairing of different materials. Relaxed, but exquisite. And the haircut fits her face perfectly. Very well-proportioned face, how rare is it to come across a girl with a chin like that?

  2. She's a great-looking girl, isn't she? Ideal........i don't know. Maybe I just admire girls that know what kind of hairstyle and clothing work for them.

    The Swede above got my heart fluttering though. Fluttering like a 12 year old girl.

  3. And a bit too thin. Cheeks kind of cave in a little. I'm thin enough, I think. Don't really need another sickly looking girl.
