Celebrity: The hair and makeup of the actress Kim Gyu-lee have become the standard.

Hair: Long and straight with blond streaks or bleached with black roots.

Wardrobe: Trendy jersey and skinny pants that cover the platform heels.

Accessories: Trendy and inexpensive replicas of all brands.

Attitude: Curious, experimental, liberal.

Sunglasses: Every girl's all-time vanity glasses. Both types of women, downtown and uptown, love sunglasses from Armani.


THE UPTOWN LOOK

Celebrity: The actress Shim Eun-Ha's clean and classy image is much envied.

Hair: Neatly groomed bob pinned up with a pricey French Olivier barrette adorned with glittering diamante stones.

Makeup: French brand name cake foundation to guarantee 100 percent natural-looking skin. The latest hue from Chanel is a must. No eye makeup.

Accessories: Anything Gucci that is purchased from a duty-free shop.
