To start of 2013, we have a newcomer to the Hit or Miss victims list. This time it’s Sunny, who was photographed wearing Black Studded Sneakers from ShoeSone at the recording of Koala Kid: The Outback.
These sneakers are really a love it or hate it item due to the exaggerated chunkiness of the soles, which may remind many of the McDonald’s clown’s iconic shoes. With Sunny being so petite, these high tops seem overwhelming for her body size. Fortunately, she has managed to avoid committing a catastrophic fashion crime since the rest of her outfit is nothing out of the ordinary.
Those of you who disagree may find Sunny’s sneakers edgy and unique. The studs do add fierceness and eccentricity to her overall look, but still, the shoes seem like a little too much.
What do you think of the sneakers?

With millions of fans waiting for a comeback, Girls’ Generation started the year with a revamped style and image. With a mix of brands such as Vivienne Westwood and Lazy Oaf seen in their music video, it was the use of Burberry Prorsum that had mixed reviews. The colorful metallic Burberry trench coats make their first appearance during Tiffany and Taeyeon’s powerhouse solo part with members wearing different colors of the trench coat, pairing it with orange fringe wigs.
Good highlights of this particular choice of outfit could perhaps be that it shows that the girls’ new approach in fashion and style. The outfit particularly symbolizes the girls losing their ‘cute and girly’ image, finally migrating into a more mature look. Furthermore, the trench coats highlight their silhouettes due to the by cinching their waists.
However, it seems that in this case the negatives of the outfit outweigh the positives by a wide margin. The styling of the look are far too identical, the girls may be wearing different colors of the coat, but the matching wig and even make-up makes it hard to determine each member.
Another would be the length of the trench coat, the original length makes it look sophisticated and modern as seen in the runway image above. In the music video, the coats however are cut to a mini length, making the trench appear tacky and cheap, and losing the original sophistication of the coat.
Notably, what really brings down the outfit would be the shoes, the shoes worn by girls do not compliment the trench coat’s color and style. Sooyoung pairs her blue metallic trench with neon strappy heels, the mix of extreme colors does not give the coat justice. The same goes with the glitter pumps worn by Jessica, Hyoyeon and Tiffany which further punctuates the tackiness of the look. Last but definitely not the least would be on the sneaker wedges worn by Yoona, Seohyun and Sunny. The shoes look too heavy for the high fashion coat and the overall style of it does not blend well with the high fashion feel of the trench coat. The trench coat is already a statement piece in itself, so it would have been better if it was paired with simpler heels or sandals.
So what do you think? Is this a high fashion risk or a fashion flop?

The last Hit or Miss of 2012 questions Sooyoung’s choice of outfit once again. This month she was seen wearing a Sequin Lip Blouse and Knee Length Skirt, both by Moschino Cheap and Chic, on SBS Midnight TV Entertainment.
The skirt doesn’t seem to be the problem; it’s cute, simple and an appropriate length for Sooyoung to sit without feeling exposed. The color and organza fabric add a girly flair to her outfit. However, the problem arises with the blouse, which is awkwardly printed with faces and colored lips.
Since Sooyoung is wearing the blouse tucked in, only one lip is visible, making the print even more odd. Another issue with the top is the rainbow hued sequins. Not only do the colors of the sequins make the blouse look cheap, but they also make the sequins resemble the scales of a fish. Surely, many people will agree that it is mainly the sequins that cause problems with Sooyoung’s outfit.
Sooyoung is our victim for the last Hit or Miss poll of this year, so do you want to be merciful or let her know what you really think?
Hit or Miss?
Two avid book lovers go head-to-head with their sense of airport fashion!
First off is California Girl Tiffany, who was recently seen wearing the Wildfox Couture ‘Seeing Stars Lennon Sweater’ last November 13, 2012. Here, she layered the red sweater with a Maje fur coat, wore black tights to hug her legs and wore very bright and cozy sequin ugg boots.
To match the star print of the sweater, she paired it with her Adidas Patch Star Holdall Bag and simple sunglasses/shades. Given the cold weather, Tiffany had to stay warm by layering pieces and covering up her body, while she keeps her hair down to flow on her shoulders and gives a very natural look.
Next is New Yorker Emma Roberts, who was seen at the LAX Airport last August 3, 2012. She wears the same sweater but in black, she also layers it with a simple black hoodie jacket and chose to wear skinny denim jeans.
Emma keeps it casual with a pair of white Converse Hi Sneaker shoes and simple black sunglasses/shades, opting for high end accessories – a purple Yves Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc Bag and a personalized Louis Vuitton Pegase Suitcase. Make-up free, Emma finishes her airport look with a very messy bun, probably due to her long flight to Los Angeles but still maintains her composure.
Both stars have their ups and downs with this look, but who wore the starry sweater better?
SMTOWN Singapore 2012 was definitely a big hit, but another piece of shocking news was about our aegyo member Sunny! With photos of the concert surfacing, one very noticeable difference was the fact that Sunny had a new – more ‘colorful’ hair do.
She switched her iconic blonde pixie cut to a bright candy purple shade. The cut itself has also changed to a more clean straight cut, and her side part bangs have been transformed to a straight cut full bangs. The rounder shape of her hair is also more noticeable.
With her blonde pixie cut receiving generally positive reviews, we highly questioned how this hairstyle affects Sunny’s look. The inconsistency of the shade or color would make it harder to match outfits with (The gold “Mr. Taxi” costumes definitely don’t match with her hair), and the shape of the cut garnered comments of the hairstyle making her have a ‘mushroom’ appearance.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Sunny in stand out hairstyles (such as her “Flower Power” wig). Her positive and fun appearance always makes her able to pull them off, but does it look high fashion or too ‘avant garde’?
What do you think about Sunny’s new do? Is it a hit or a miss?
As we move into winter, we’ve been seeing lots of fur this season. Sooyoung, a notorious fashionista, followed this trend as she appeared on an episode of SBS Midnight TV entertainment (11/14/12) wearing a Hairy Sleeve Sweater by Carven.
The first thing that comes to mind when seeing Sooyoung in this sweater is how large it makes her look! The hairy sleeves resemble the arms of a teddy bear and do nothing to flatter her body. The combination of the blue and white pattern with the puffy sleeves just doesn’t seem right. Those two areas seem to clash and compete for attention since they are two completely different concepts.
We don’t have a view of what Sooyoung is wearing on the bottom, but whatever it is, it probably won’t be able to save her from this sweater.
However, as always fashion is very subjective, so there may be some who see this Carven piece as fashion-forward or eccentric in a good way. No one can deny that it is unique and makes a statement.
What’s the verdict? Hit or Miss?
Coincidentally Miranda Cosgrove and Tiffany was spotted wearing the same Juicy Couture Faux Fur Coat last November 22, 2012. Tiffany even advertised the same coat for High Cut Magazine, Volume 90. How ‘bout that? They practically wore it at the same time! Great fashionistas think alike!
Tiffany was spotted in Gimpo Airport wearing the coat deciding to keep it closed for warmth against the cold. A simple necklace and a basic gray shirt was paired with the coat as not to over shadow it. She added black stockings as well as a leopard bag. Tiffany’s choice of bag may not be at par with the over-all outfit, disregarding it will be a good opponent against Miranda.
Meanwhile, Miranda Cosgrove was spotted in New York City about to go to a live interview with Jimmy Fallon. She wore a Suno Dotted Sequin Top and Alice + Olivia Metallic Shorts to her interview outside the studio. To compliment her inner outfit she opted to wear the coat open to show it off.
Both artists wore red nail polish that added a pop of color to their outfits as well as boots for footwear. The coat in general is very hard to wear without making it look like it’s wearing you out. Especially for the people who have curvy figures that would most likely make them look bigger by wearing faux fur.
Who do you think wore the coat best and gave it justice?
