Model: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

Caroline Charonplop Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is her full stage name but it's usually shortened to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and then shortened even more to just 'Kyary' (きゃり). Her real name is 竹村キリコ (Kiriko Takemura). She was originally a fashion blogger but moved onto modelling and singing, even as far as launching her line of false eyelashes. 

I love her fashion sense, regardless of whether she is modelling clothes picked out by a stylist or clothes that looks like she'd wear everyday. She's so cute and so quirky, it's difficult not to like her. Most Japanese models for street fashion are picked out from the streets, or anywhere. They'd never make it on the runways in the west because there are different standards. 

I do warn that if you really want to watch her music videos, they're very weird and kind of mess up your mind with creepy cuteness.  She also has a tendency to make strange faces to emphasise her cuteness. Obviously most of the things she wears for show are not exactly street appropriate...

Love the dress... my love for plaid

But she does wear things that a little more appropriate for the street while still maintaining her little quirk:
She's in the middle with 2NE1

She has a unique style (in that she cannot be shoved into a category) and she's cute and loveable. That's perhaps why she's so successful. All these things considering that she's only 19 (she was born on January 29, 1993) and started off from fashion blogging.
