initially, i didn't really warm up to her. she was way too flamboyant for my liking. i also thought that her vogue nippon editorials lacked variety and were mere replicas of her style (big hair, mammoth baubles, tanned skin, exaggerated silhouettes). but i have come to appreciate her presence in the fashion industry. i like her radiant positivity, her commitment to maintaining a toned physique through exercise (did you see her arms and legs?), and obviously her willingness to push fashion boundaries. who can pull off neon colors better than her?!
you can see more of the extravagant lady on her blog here.
