This morning, Asia’s first lady of pop, CL, was unveiled as the cover star of Dazed Korea’s ‘Generation Z’ issue. Photographed by Yeongjun Kim, the leader of K-Pop group 2NE1 stars on two separate covers, wearing Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci in both.
Having enjoyed a successful solo career with the banging Teddy-produced track “Hello Bitches” and a global tour following for her work with supergroup 2NE1, CL has succeeding in captivating the fashion world. Jeremy Scott touts her as his seminal muse and collaborator, and she’s become a fashion week fixture, sitting front row at Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Givenchy and Hood By Air.
In the Autumn/Winter 2015 issue of Dazed, CL told us: “Normally people think of Asian women as timid, but I think I’m very strong.” This attitude permeates these newly-released covers, so we’ve no doubt the self-dubbed “Baddest Female” will continue to kill it.
