Our Big Bang boys are at it again! The insanely fashion-forward K-pop group has always had a heavy hand in the fashion world (see: their custom Hermes jackets, collab with Nicola Formichetti, and INSANE Vogue Korea spread), but now we can FINALLY swipe up duds created by the infamous boy band. Big Bang's frontman G-Dragon hooked up with Tokyo-based clothing company Ambush on a 5-piece capsule collection that we're ob-SESSED with. He created all black and gold pieces that'll be sure to amp up any outfit in an instant.

CL 2NE1 i-D Magazine

Just when we think the bond between Jeremy Scott and 2NE1's CL can't get any stronger, the fashion designer and K-pop star collab once again to make our stone cold fashion hearts melt--this time for i-D magazine! The oh-so-cool twosome have been extremely open about their BFFness (yeah, that's a word), and CL even explained how they partnered up in i-D's latest issue. "When our first album came out, Jeremy saw the video, and I was wearing his shoe collaboration with Adidas. [...] You know when you meet someone and you just know you’re going to be good friends? We had that connection and since then we’ve been like best friends." Awwwww! Well, we couldn't be more happy the two besties linked up because the results we get when they are together are PHENOM. See: The photo above. JS decked out CL in his finest (and most fluorescent!) duds for their latest i-D shoot, and we're obsessed with her hot pink and yellow street wear-meets-raver Jeremy Scott for Adidas puffy coat, hoodie, bustier, and sweatpants ensemble. WERK.

CL 2NE1 Harper's Bazaar Korea

It seems like we just can't get enough of CL. The 2NE1 star is one of our favorite fashiony gals as of late because she's always decked out in THE most bold and badass ensembles (think: head-to-toe neon fur and allover gold baroque prints). But, when we peeped the K Pop star in the March 2013 issue of Harper's Bazaar, we saw an entirely new side of the singer. She ditched her typically bright ensembles for some seriously high-fashion all-black duds, and she still killed it. In her first look (above), she sported a black floppy hat with a lace button-up bell sleeve shirt and diamond leopard earrings. She went for a SUPER dramatic beauty look with an extra thick cat eye, bold matte red lip, a swipe of bronzer, and eggplant nails. PERF!

CL Jeremy Scott Terry Richardson

Listen, we're WELL aware that 2NE1 has a serious affinity for Jeremy Scott duds. I mean, their world tour wardrobe was created entirely by J. Scott himself, and they even collabed on a pair of kicks together. But, we have to say, there's something really, really heartwarming about seeing one of favorite K-pop stars and favorite designers actually hanging out. Terry Richardson documented CL and Jeremy looking like total besties at a photo shoot in his studio, and we're basically DYING over how cute they are. :') Like, peep them posing like a badass prom couple above. Jeremy wore an all-over patchwork bomber jacket with a sweater tied around his waist and black Adidas pants, while CL kept it simple in a vintage Gucci tee, (what looks like) vintage Versace earrings and necklace, and fiery red leather pants. She finished the look with a super clean cat eye, long lashes, and soft bangs. LOVE.

Big Bang Vogue Korea

We'll admit it—we need more K Pop in our lives. More specifically, we need more Big Bang. The 5-piece Korean boy band is ALWAYS dolling out the freshest looks (um, remember when they wore metallic Minx manicures? YEAH.), so when we peeped them in the March issue of Vogue Korea, we basically lost our shiz. It looks like the entire Big Bang crew didn't make it to the shoot, but G-Dragon and Taeyang had enough stylin' duds to seriously stun us. In the first look, G-Dragon wore a "Vogue" snapback (heh) with a white tank, leather shorts, skeleton X-ray knee-high socks, black sneakers, and tons (TONS!) of layered necklaces. He BA-ROUGHT his beauty game by sporting shimmery smokey eyes, statement brows, and half red, half green hair. Speaking of beauty, check out Taeyang's killer blonde and black braids! #DEAD He also wore drippy eye makeup and a smudge of liner below his lower lids. For his outfit, he wore a "Jewelry" snapback, oversized black and white graphic tee, leather pants, luxury branded boots, and the THICKEST platinum diamond chain we have ever seen. Whew, is it getting hot in here or is it just us? *fans self*

Nicola Formichetti, G-Dragon

The one thing I can't get enough of is how Nicola Formichetti commissions exclusive music for his shows with Mugler. It's never predictable and the selections have run the gamut from Lady Gaga to Azealia Banks to the legendary Japanese composer Ryuchi Sakamoto. Each time, it's like the score cracks open Nicola's head to reveal what he was thinking during the inception of each collection and it's fascinating. So when "Nicopanda" shot me an email that he'd been working with Korean megastar, Big Bang's G-Dragon for his latest, I got really excited. It's hardly news to regular readers of this site that K-pop is my jam.

When Nicola and I talked yesterday afternoon he was exhausted but energized. It was 10:00PM Paris time and he still had about 10 more dudes to fit before he could go home. That said, he wasn't too tired to give me the scoop on his "theme song" for the Mugler Fall/Winter 2013 Men's collection. Despite Big Bang's success, it's G-Dragon's work on his own that Nicola specifically responded to. "I wasn't sure that Big Bang's music was right," says Formichetti. "It's too pop for what I wanted to do with the season but G-Dragon's solo career has a lot more rap, trance, a lot more techno."

MC Hammer, PSY

PSY and his earwormy "Gangnam Style" have snowballed into a full-blown pop phenomenon. From SNL to in-flight entertainment to parody videos to awards show performances, the dude and his giddy-upping, mean-mugging moves are pretty much everywhere. Also, those statement shades and spectator wing-tips. And yet, given its near-omnipresence, we're still not tired of it. PSY's schtick continues to be fun and catchy and sosoSO unbelievably entertaining EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. without much changing. Well, believe it or not, the 2012 American Music Awards did us one even better tonight and gave us something we didn't realize we needed in our lives. PSY + MC Hammer wearing *drumrolllllll* Hammer pants. *GIGANTIC AUDIBLE GASP* Billowy, heavily draped, black-and-white, tuxedo-striped, inspired by harem pants but because they're worn by Mr. Stanley Burrell, they are HAMMER PANTS.

2NE1 Fault Magazine

It's kind of impossible not to fall in love with 2NE1. Like, the moment we realized they also share a serious obsession with Jeremy Scott and decked-out winged sneakers, we were ALL aboard this K-Pop train. Typically, the 4-piece girl group (which includes Dara, CL, Minzy and Bom) can be seen sporting larger-than-life technicolor onstage ensembles or killer customized streetwear, but when we peeped them on the recently-released Dreams & Nightmares issue of FAULT Magazine, they totally transitioned over to the dark side. *cue spooky ghost sounds* All four ladies were clad in fancy, all-black ensembles paired with animal-inspired headgear that looked straight from the Viking era. And we're not talking cutesy little horns here—we're talking insane headpieces with spikes on them. Yeah. Spikes, people. On horns. The cover shoot, photographed by Giuliano Bekor and styled by Avo Yermagyan, shows a darker, goth-glam side of the girl group, which was used as a double cover with Kelly Osbourne's goth glam shoot from a few weeks ago. OMG, our cold, black hearts can barely handle all this goth-y goodness.

PSY stars in Jill Stuart NY's Gangnam x New York Style teaser video.

Don't say we didn't warn you. From first wind of K Pop rapper PSY and his outrageously epic "Gangnam Style" music video, we knew this dude was one to watch ESPECIALLY on the fashion front. We broke down earwormy vid look by look and all its sunglasses-and-fine-suiting and tacked PSY onto our mental watchlist of budding dude fashion stars. Lo and behold, here he is starring in a new video teaser for a little something Jill Stuart has coming down the pipe called "Gangnam x New York Style." *strokes silky, silvery thinking beard*

A still from Psy's "Gangnam Style" music video.

If you've never heard of "Gangnam Style," the K-Pop video by the artist PSY (pronounced like the first syllable of 'psycho' not spelled out like, 'pee ess why') that's DOMINATED Youtube with 74 million views and is currently sitting pretty atop the iTunes charts, you should seriously reconsider your priorities (helpful hint: stop reading so many books! JKJKJK). Anyway, it's a great, noisy, catchy song that features a fun, giddyup dance sequence that's as easily mimicked as the Dougie or the Chicken Noodle Soup. Just go watch it and then read this thing in the Atlantic about its "subversive" themes that soooooorta treats the prospect of a pop song containing a meaningful social message as if Maru the box-jumping cat solved cold fusion. But I digress...

Long story short, there's a lot going on in this video that everyone from CNN to Gawker has covered regarding this "underground rapper" < -- (LOL meanwhile, this is PSY's 6th studio album) so all I want to talk about is the FASHION. Especially since "Gangnam Style" refers to a tiny neighborhood in Korea that prides itself on its bougie boutiques and pretty people. Obviously dude is label mates with 2NE1 and Big Bang on YG because he is DECKED OUT. It's also no surprise that Justin Bieber's team is interested in this middle-aged, South Korean superstar because MAN would those two look cute together. I smell a duet! (...And it smells like kimchi etc etc...)

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
