Big Bang Nail Art

If y'all don't know who boy band Big Bang is, you either A.) aren't on the internet NEARLY enough or B.) haven't discovered the amazingess that is K-pop. I mean, honestly, it's kind of impossible to avoid the K-pop invasion at this point—2NE1 is about to take over the U.S. with their first world tour and Big Bang has slowly won over our hearts with their affinity for Minx Nails (awww!) and killer fashion sense. The boys, G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri, are notorious for their edgy style and flair for all-things fashion-y and fun, so when it comes to imitating them via nail art, it's not much different. First up, we loved this unbelievable set inspired by their Alive Monster Edition CD cover art and current world tour of the same name. Even the triangle logo is dead on. ME-OOOOWWWW.

The second we hear that K-pop cuties 2NE1 and Jeremy Scott are working together on ANYTHING, we legitimately lose our shiz. Currently we're hardcore spazzing over Jeremy Scott's recent tweet, which revealed that he's designing 2NE1's upcoming tour costumes. And, like, excuse us if we're late to this party, but ASKJDALKSJD. He said, "YES ITS TRUE, ILL BE DESIGNING THE COSTUMES FOR 2NE1 FOR THEIR 1st WORLD TOUR !" 2NE1's New Evolution tour kicks off July 28th in the Olympic Gymnastics Stadium in South Korea (NBD), and then they will continue to travel the world for the first time ever (!!!) singing hits like "Ugly" and "I Am The Best" in only the most ferosh ensembles, obvs.

K Pop group Girls' Generation leaves "The Late Show with David Letterman."

Welp, I think the image above just confirms that two of 2011's most impactful debuts—K Pop and SpiritHoods—aren't going anywhere any time soon. In fact, they're only growing in ubiquity. South Korean female supergroup Girls' Generation made its American network television debut on last night's Late Show with David Letterman and flat out kiiiiiilled an Anglo remix of their hit single "The Boys". All nine Girls hit Pussycat Dolls meets Spice Girls choreography HARD in black lace and sequins and patent knee-high boots with heels. They performed their faces off and left it all on the Late Show stage while Superbowl-costumed Bill Murray and Regis Philbin looked on from the sideline. After their milestone performance, they hit the road, this time conquering a different kind of pop star staple: the furry animal hood.

2NE1 sits down with MTV Style after their first U.S. performance.

Yesterday marked the first U.S. performance of K-Pop girl group 2NE1 (pronounced either "To Anyone" or "Twenty-one"). For anyone who missed MTV Iggy's Best New Band livestream or are unfamiliar with the four-member outfit from South Korea--CL, Park Bom, Dara, and Minzy--you can read all about them on this gloriously exhaustive write-up but for the rest of you...ZOMG, YOU GUYS! THE CONCERT WAS SOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD.

First of all, the line for the show which began at 4 p.m. ET was out of control by 10 a.m. and since the Best Buy theater in Times Square is, like, a yard-and-a-half away from MTV, every time 2NE1's exuberant fanbase (known as Blackjacks) cheered, our office windows would shake. And, yeah, hi, we're on the 17th floor. So you can imagine the excitement when the ladies (clad in varying iterations of scarlet military uniforms with gold metal armor panels) stormed the stage. There was so much screaming you could feel the reverberations on your ribcage.

The ladies of K-Pop mega band 2NE1.

OK, stop what you're doing right now. We're serious. Are you aware that today is one gigantic celebration of EPIC proportions? Do you know that this afternoon (or evening or NIGHT, depending on where you are) marks the culmination of MTV Iggy's global search for the 2011 Best New Band in the World? And, more importantly, that the winner of this year's search is the totally bonkers bananas crazy face AMAZING K-Pop girl band 2NE1? You should either A) be screaming at this point like we are, B) lined up outside MTV's Times Square headquarters also screaming, or C) about to click on this link right here to catch the livestream of the MTV Iggy Best New Band Live concert (4:00 p.m. ET) to scream while watching 2NE1 make their stateside debut. Did we mention that the triumphant girl power representin' in this band—courtesy of members Minzy, CL, Dara, and Bom—is all wrapped up in some of the most sensational style you've ever seen this side of the Atlantic? Oh, and that these girls love themselves some Jeremy Scott? Whewww, we've got some catchin' UP to do.

Leading girl group 2NE1 attends the Adidas Originals Collaboration with Jeremy Scott and 2NE1 Launching show on Nov. 1, 2011, in Seoul, South Korea.

Blackjacks* and Jeremy Scott STANS rejoice...twice! The K-Pop Sensation and the Street Style King of All Things Outside The Box have collaborated on two different variations of the Adidas Originals JS Wing shoe, and these MIGHT be two of the most sickening shoes we’ve ever seen. #SHOEICIDE.

The multicolored Original Wings are the epitome of Jeremy Scott, and if you’re at all familiar with 2NE1 and its super-contagious, percussive, badass music you can easily see the group's role as the inspiration. These shoes are a lot to look at because there’s so much variety in the color/pattern, but if you're confident enough to pull them off you know you could wear them with anything. THEY. POP.

There's ALSO an elegant alternative in a much more subtle, white satin colorway. These have heaven/spring/Diddy's White Party written all over them. Put down your Red Bull, folks, because Jeremy and the ladies of 2NE1 have just given you wingsssssss.

All of this, PLUS, did you know our boy Jeremy Scott will be in attendance at this year's EMA's?! He joins the likes of all of our favorite celebs, like Katy Perry, Evanescence singer Amy Lee, Hayden Panettiere, supermodels Bar Refaeli and Irina Shayk, David Hasselhoff, and WWE superstar Sheamus, with performances by Justin Bieber and David Guetta. Love.

If you're still wondering who 2NE1 is, it's time you got into them. Click here to peep their latest video for "I'm The Best" and prepare to be inspired. We're serious...these bishes WERK.

*Blackjacks = Fans of 2NE1, pronounced “Twenty One”… also known as… well… Blackjack.

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