Dara made a powerful statement at the Vivienne Westwood Fall/Winter 2024 show by paying homage to her iconic gravity-defying spiky “Vegeta” hairstyle inspired by Dragon Ball Z, symbolising her bold persona during 2NE1’s peak.

Dara complemented the hairstyle with an edgy and yet glamorous ensemble featuring a tinsel-draped black top, sparkly gold skirt and some black patent thigh-high boots, which exuded confidence and paid tribute to the K-pop girl group’s boundary-pushing legacy.

Punk rock but in a coquette way? Trust Dara to pull it off. The music star wore a baby pink bow corset top that had structured boning, hugging her figure in the most flattering way. She paired it with a black tiered organza skirt and edgy thigh-high leather boots with buckles and deliberate patterned holes to perform her solo single Festival at the 33rd Seoul Music Awards.

At Paris Fashion Week, she turned heads in a voluminous, avant-garde grey ensemble by Rick Owens. The oversized, sculptural coat featured billowing sleeves and an exaggerated silhouette. Dara fearlessly embraced the unconventional design, commanding attention in the eye-catching monochromatic look. She embodied Rick Owens’s boundary-pushing aesthetic, proving her status as a true fashion risk-taker and icon. She didn’t just wear the outfit—she owned it with her inimitable confidence and edgy personal style.
