white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
*slowly backflips into space*
but Gwen Stefani is showing America Harijuku style? I could be 10000% wrong and If I am I apologize, but they way the girls are dressed are stuff in the harijuku style?
No, there is no “harajuku style”. Harajuku is a district in Tokyo. There’s a lot of interesting fashion there (people usually mean decora when they say “harajuku style”) but no specific “harajuku style”.
Gwen Stefani’s dancers are not dressed in a style you would see there, they’re just dressed in “weird” clothing.
These portrayals by white women reduce Japanese culture to a stereotype so they can stand out.
1. Fairly certain these girls weren’t forced to wear these outfits and perform with them.
2. It’s just dressing as a way to be different and fun. Isn’t it terrible when something stands out? Oh my god.
3. Obviously none of you have heard of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, or practically any J-Pop or K-Pop artist. Most of them are so over the top, it’s insane.
Now, I’m not really a fan of any of the celebrities pictured, but to try and diss them because they’re white is ignorant and ridiculous. You all look like fools.
