I haven’t done one of these in weeks, but i figured why not do one on a girl who better than today’s Birthday Girl, Lee Chaerin aka Seoul City’s baddest female CL of 2NE1 aka The Leader or just CL. Since the start of her career in 2009 with 2NE1, CL who turned 22 today, has been the muse for Jeremy Scott’s work with Adidas, known for her spunky TLC inspired Tomboy style mixed with a fearing, take no shit stage persona that can be compared to a Michael Jackson and Beyoncé. CL and 2NE1 faced criticism for not being like the other Korean girl groups who portrayed traditional female male images, which in my view is kind of degrading, the group fought back while getting wilder and crazier. Fluent in Korean, English, French and Japanese CL took her fierce concept stateside and around the world with 2NE1 blazing stages, red carpets and fashion weeks, dressed in Chanel, Jeremy Scott, Balmain and Givency.
Happy Birthday CL, from one of your American Blackjacks
