IU's formal outfit garners attention

Once again our IU's fashion has garnered headlines. Check out the article!

IU’s formal outfit has garnered a lot of attention.

The event to name the honorary ambassador and present the logo song for “International Exposition Yeosu Korea 2012” was held on May 9 in the afternoon at Hyundai Office Building in Gye-dong, Seoul. IU appearing in a formal dress was beautiful enough to catch other guests’ eyes.

Her white dress well balanced with a black-and-white jacket helped her look like a beautiful and professional woman, not a cute lively girl.

People who had seen the photos have said: “I found another attraction of her”, “She transformed herself into a woman from a girl, but she’s still a cute girl” and “She looks adorable in a formal dress as well.”

IU was named as an honorary ambassador for “International Exposition Yeosu Korea 2012.” She’s expected to keep the following promotional activities such as singing its logo song until next summer.
