Gangnam Grandad!

When was the last time you were jealous of a 72 years old's legs? Never I'll bet! Say hi to Gangnam Grandad Liu Xiamping.
Liu is the unusual muse of granddaughter Lyu Ting's fashion range. Daring to give her fashion advice on her garments she quickly coerced him into a photo shoot. He's got legs to rival Kate Moss's.
She uses oversized shades and wigs to make him look 
Gangnam Fabulous! 
Is it rude to say he reminds us of Anna Wintour?
The insouciance in these pics hints at a Karl Lagerfeld influence.

Kig med her:
Liu says in Grazia "Why is it unacceptable for someone like me to wear women's clothes?"
"Modelling for the store is helping my granddaughter and I have nothing to lose. I'm very old and all I care about is being happy."

Big Bang K Pop

Big Bang have been wowing the world since 2006 and they will soon be wowing Wembley with their much anticipated gig this December.
It's a first ever world tour for the band who have been adored and loved long before Psy came anywhere near the K Pop scene. The five members are G Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri.
The MTV Awards in 2011 were confirmation of how huge these guys are when they fought off acts such as Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears to be crowned Best Worldwide Act.

'Alive' is their fifth EP and came out this February. Fantastic Baby has already had 52million views.

Cool style, colourful outfits and more importantly great singing voices and tunes have driven their rise to the top.

Down dem energy drinks!
The new EP sees leader G Dragon playing a major song-writing role with T.O.P providing the the rap lyrics. 

G Dragon

2011 hit 'Tonight' is one of their catchiest tunes.

The EP stormed into the top 10 US Itunes chart. The album sold 100,000 copies in it's first week of release.
The guys range in age from 21 to 25.

'Blue' proves they can do ballads brilliantly.

Exciting pics from their gig in Japan on Big Bang's Facebook show there is lots to be excited about.

They're Fantastic Baby!

Jake Bugg

He's the super skilled guitarist and singing 18 year old with a Number 1 album already in the bag. His song Lightning Bolt was played at the Olympics for Usain Bolt. His music is a catchy blend of Folk/Rock. He's feted by all and compared to Bob Dylan. He's Jake Bugg!

Here's 'Lightning Bolt'

A talented songwriter, his lyrics have real depth and give good flavour to his growing up in Nottingham. Tales of gangters and violence give a gritty feel to some of his songs.

At Cochella.
Jake love's smoking weed so much he made a recent Nme journalist join in before he would answer any questions.
"Smoke weed every dayyyyyy!"

'Taste It' is another favourite.

His music sounds fresh as it's eclectic and varied in it's influences. Hints of Oasis, Artic Monkeys, The Las and a 60s vibe.

Next we'd like to present you with 'Two Fingers'.

We were so lucky to see him live last December at a small gig. He's incredible, the voice, the guitar playing and the atmosphere all fantastic. The slow songs were as brilliant as the rockier tunes.
Catch him later this year on tour.

Velvet Skirts

Bernadette F's velvet skirt is a bit cool homies. Velvet is normally a trend that never really gets up speed. We think it's best as a skirt or top. Jackets and trousers are dodgy territory until they come up with a way to jazz up the fabric with a different texture or even a print.
Dominique N's American Apparel top is chic n'est ce pas?
Emi Coco's Chicnova skirt works well with the Litas.

Imogen D's velvet Jeffrey Campbells are hot.
Zoe S's cute bow and dress vibe.

Tess Lively's peekaboo skirt. Choies jumper.

Violet E has nailed it. Romwe leggings.
