I Got A Japanese Lolita Fashion Makeover

  • Published on Jul 20, 2019
  • So we traveled to East Asia to film a six-part series about beauty, style, and shopping - and we’re coming in hot with episode 2 about Japanese Street Fashion Subcultures! Japan has some very iconic and unique Harajuku-centric fashion subcultures, and Lolita style has always fascinated me - so we decided to do a deep dive into the poofy, frilly, pastel style! What do you think of my final look?

    the early lolita look gained popularity as a means for young women to avoid sexualization & The Male Gaze. later on, "tight-lacing" in corsetry (corsets & stays, as history nerds are aware, are not SUPPOSED to be laced to skintightness but as a foundation & structural garment) + blouse ruffles got bigger to complement all the petticoats added - leading to the modern hourglass silhouette lolita is known for today. but the movement did not BEGIN with figure-shaping in-mind. one of its spin-offs, the "mori-girl" look, echoes that early "loose" silhouette.
    youthfulness as "sexy" beauty is even more extremely idealized in east asia than in the west... as the sheer number of highschool uniforms as cosplays at any fandom event can probably attest. so that (and, obvs, the fun of swishing skirts & feeling like a princess) is why lolita became so huge.

    I have a question is there an age limit to lolita like how young/old is too young/old to wear Lolita? etc.

    This is my first Safiya Nygaard video ever, and I loved it. I love love love your hair and makeup. I always thought Lolitas were trying to look like little girls (we wore poofy slips and skirts back in the early 60s) so this was very educational as well as entertaining. And the tea, OMG, how did you not die from cuteness overload!

    After watching this video:
    So is there two types of Lolita, she’s saying it’s feminine and sophisticated but when I watched
    Oran high school host club, it was more of a cutesy wotsy type of meaning that Honey senpai gave off.
