Celebrating @Fashionwidget’s 500th Blogpost as the Fierce Fashionistas of K-Pop #2NE1 Take Over New York City @MTVIGGY

#500 is 2NE1 STYLE↓

The Streets of New York City pumped with a different kind of bass when the ladies of 2ne1 touched down at JFK last week. Fans or should I say “Blackjacks” (as they are popularly known) were seen turning up the speakers on any portable device that could legally play music in the streets while emulating dance-steps made popular by the collective of CL, Minzy, Dara & Bom in celebration of the iconic K-Pop (Korean Pop) group’s arrival. This trip marks the first visit by the girls as a group to New York City and is indeed a rare occasion for many K-pop fans. They arrived on a seasonably cold, rainy school-day morning yet many die-hard fans still managed to make the trip to the airport to welcome them.


Both resident and visiting Blackjacks have since been seen stylishly roaming the streets of Manhattan in the hopes of catching a glimpse of their favourite girl from the group. The all-girl group is Stateside to attend and perform at MTV IGGY’s Best Band In The World Concert (more information below) and as seen through Twitter tweets from the girls who have been sightseeing, photo-shooting, meeting & greeting their fans, they are enjoying their stay thus far.  A selected groups of lucky contest winners will get to see the girls perform live as announced by MTV IGGY who had previously conducted a raffle for fans to win tickets.

Blackjacks have also been spotted in Manhattan waving signs, playing music & styled up in looks similar to 2NE1’s signature style which is credited mostly to the favourite designer for the girls, Jeremy Scott.  The concert will be streamed LIVE from the MTV IGGY website, for more details on where you can watch and to learn more about groups performing please see and visit the links below:
