Formed by SM Entertainment, Red Velvet create catchy music, with awesome dance routines, and on top of that, fresh-off-the-runway outfits.
If you read my BlackPink post, you'll know I'm not super into the girl groups in K-pop -the boys are more my thing- but Red Velvet might just be my favourite female's in the k-pop industry.
As they've just started releasing new music, I thought now was the perfect time to write about how incredible their styles are.

Kpop is something that exploded into my life in the latter half of 2017.
Thanks to a new friend at work, groups such as BTS, Red Velvet, Seventeen and EXO, have pretty much taken over me.
Although, majority of the girl groups aren't really my cup of tea -I prefer the boy bands within kpop- I can't help but obsess over their style.
Now the Asian fashion sense has been something I've been in love with for a while. Japanese and Korean fashion in particular has always caught my eye.
At the forefront, we have BlackPink. These 4 girls have it all. Talent, looks, confidence and style. Their outfits effortlessly ooze perfection. Whether it's on stage or at an airport, they always look on point.

Sigh, there was a lot of good music released this year.
From comebacks to debuts, 2017 was start to finish a great soundtrack.
These are my top ten albums of 2017.
No particular order of course.

Lily Aldridge | Frida Aasen | Roosmarijn de Kok | Stella Maxwell
Blanca Padilla | Josephine Skriver | Bella Hadid | Ming Xi
Liu Wen | Karlie Kloss | Romee Strijd | Martha Hunt
Bruna Lirio | Josephine Skriver | Jasmine Tookes

Elsa Hosk | Stella Maxwell | Candice Swanepoel
The most anticipated fashion show of the year has officially aired on TV.
Victoria's Secret took over the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China, to showcase their latest collection of lingerie.
2017 marked the year of Karlie Kloss' return to the glitter runway, Candice Swanepoel's first VS walk since becoming a mum and, unfortunately, Alessandra Ambrosio's last year as one of the longest running angels.
Featuring musical guests, Miguel, Yundi, Leslie Odom Jr, Jane Zhang and actual angel Harry Styles, this year was not quite as star packed as usual. But that's a bad thing. Whether you've heard of them or not, every performer did an incredible job.
So what about those segments?
The Balmain collaboration was inspired by the Punk movement in the late 70's and opened up the show with a powerful walk from Candice. Whilst I didn't like the way they had two girls posing together, I liked the fact that it added something different. And Kiwi by Styles? Perfect song choice.
Porcelain Angels was easily my favourite segment. The silky, sheer material of the outfits created gorgeous, flowing capes, and the white and blue colouring blended with the feathers looked beautiful.
Goddesses showcased gold, white silver lingerie with some incredible handmade wings. Lais Ribiro wore the fantasy bra and looked like an actual goddess.
PINK for me was a bit of a mess this year, but Nomadic Adventure brought an abundance of colour and a bohemian flare to the show. NA also saw Elsa Hosk wearing the Swarovski outfit, featuring wings made from flame red crystals.
Overall, I was impressed with this years show. There was so many incredible handmade outfits that it was hard to narrow down to just a few to show her. Now excuse me while I go and sort out a gym membership, because, boy, do I feel like I need one now.

Ahh, Victoria's Secret. Where do we begin with Victoria's Secret.
Founded in 1977, the company has gone on to become one of the largest lingerie brands in the world. And that's mainly thanks to one insane night of the year. The fashion show.
Whilst the first VS show was back in 1995, it wasn't until 1999 that it was first broadcast-ed to the world. And even then, the first two years were only available via a webcasting.
The show has since become one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year.
From larger than life wings, million dollar bras, live performances and star studded audiences, the fashion show is so much more than just a fashion show.
VS hails in some of the most renowned names in the modelling world to participate. From Giselle Bunchen to Naomi Campbell. Karlie Kloss to Adriana Lima. Tyra Banks to Rosie Huntington-Whitley. Many of which have gone on to become Angels (the spokeswomen for the brand if you will)
And if you're not a household name like the aforementioned? getting a gig in VSFS will instantaneously boost your career.
And then there's the performers. Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy. Those are just a handful of names that have played on the glitter runway.
But there's the reason the show runs in the first place. The outfits. Oh my, the outfits.
With around five different segments for each show, the creators and designers have to come up with an incredible amount of ideas each year. And on top of that? There's the question of who will get the fantasy bra.
After hours of re-watching the fashion shows, I've managed to pick just a few of my favourites to post above. But trust me, there is so many more that I'm in love with.
This years will be held in Shanghai, China and will be broadcast-ed on the 28th November. So check back here to see my opinions and favourite outfits from the show.
