Drama styling tips #5: Greatest Love

Haven’t done one of these in forever, yes? (Other dramas I’ve done in this series: Bad Guy, Moon Lovers, Personal Taste.)

So I didn’t really finished this drama — lost steam at about episode 12 and never clocked in the rest — but this was worth watching for styling inspiration alone. I’m going to take a gander and say that Gong probably styled herself, because Gu Ae-jung’s fashion sense is really reminiscent of Gong’s personal style. And I love me some Gong Hyo-jin personal style. Also, it doesn’t hurt that Gong has one of the most beautiful smiles ever ever EVER. I have such a crush.

Alright, vamanos!

The thing I like about Gong’s style in the drama is that there is a huge variety. There wasn’t a lot of repetition and neither was there a “look” that Gu Ae-jung did. As you can see in the other dramas I’ve linked to earlier, I’m a bigger fan of menswear than womenswear, but Greatest Love was all about womenswear and Gong looked amazing in everything. Everything is super on-trend with the current season: wide-leg pants, a lot of volume and length, short haircuts, bright lips. Also spotted a lot of trendy bags: YSL Muse 2, Mulberry Tilly, Miu Miu satchels.

I capped a lot of these with the intent of capturing the outfits as best as I could, so they might be more informative than aesthetically pleasing.

Gong really knows how to put together an outfit because she has a great innate sense of style, which means more than just wearing nice clothes. The hair, the makeup, the accessories, the jewelry, the shoes, the clothes, the little things — all of that goes into great style and Gong just gets it. She’s also pretty adventurous with shapes and proportions, though I think that’s one of the more difficult things to play around with if you haven’t got model proportions, and com’on, she looks like this, people.

So not only is Gong a great actress, she also looks like this. Always. Some people…

    i have to agree she is a very good dresser and inspires me to ignore conventions.
    i looove her accessories. She’s got such a skinny body and interesting poise, it’s hard not to notice what she wears in every scene.

    but on certain ocassions ehh.. too adventurous for my conventional taste which I am unable to ignore. the deliberate breaking down of proportions were sometimes misses. (like the prada 2011 coat kind of misses)

    but still. gotta love her hair and the piercings.

    Thank you thank you for doing this! I wanted to do a post on this for the longest time but I didn’t have access to good screen caps. My favourite has to be the navy white polka one piece with the bright fuchsia bag and pale pink blazer. It’s perfection. I’m buying so many lipsticks after watching this drama it’s insane! Kiko Mizuhara and Gong Hyo Jin are my serious hair-spiration of the moment!
