Big Bang's Taeyang Is A Hit At Paris Men's Fashion Week 2013

Last week, Big Bang's Taeyang headed on over to Paris to take in a few shows at Men's SS 2014 Fashion Week.  This was kind of a surprise, seeing as this is usually G-Dragon's deal, but good for him!  It was nice to see another Big Bang member in the spotlight.

Since I've made no secret of my dislike of Youngbae's style in the past year (with his over usage of bandanna print and his love of too-big-for-his-frame clothing), it's pretty obvious why I was a little worried.  Would he wear something embarrassing like an all over scarf print jump suit, a lá CL's "Baddest Female" mv?  Would he wear something even worse?  Welllll... yes and no.

Let's take a look at the timeline:

Taeyang arrived in Paris on June 25th.

He met up with Rick Owens on June 26th, as shown by this Instagram update:

...took in the Raf Simons show later that day, then attended the Rick Owens ss 14 show on the 27th:

As you can see, he had a gang of people following his every move:

YB also attended the Louis Vuitton show on the 27th:

Notice the vampire grill?  Yeah this is what I was referring to when I said, "no".

Taeyang was also spotted with his vampire grill at the Junn.J show on the 28th.  I'm wondering if they make you drool out the side of your mouth?  

He took in the Givenchy show that same day:

The next day it was all about Kenzo:

Between posing for pictures with Japanese DJ Mademoiselle Yulia, South Korean singer Taeyang said his band Big Bang was working on a new album and planning another world tour.

“We’re not sure if it will take in Paris or not, but I hope so,” said the musician, who has a devoted following in France. “When I arrived, there were a lot of fans waiting for me in front of the airport. It was really surprising.”

He also paid a visit to Coco Chanel's apartment:

and met up with in demand model Soo Joo:

Taeyang has made it safely back to Korea as of July 1st...

... but has definitely managed to make an impact on the fashion world.  He even warranted a post on GQ.com's blog, which is all kinds of awesome.  People took notice, just like they did last year when G-Dragon attended men's fashion week.  Let's hope YB used his time wisely and cultivated some good new contacts.

I don't know about you but I can't wait to see what he has in store for us next.  Without the grill this time, though....
