Singer IU is currently gaining attention for the dress she wore to an awards ceremony last month.
After actress Kang So Ra was put into the spotlight for wearing an affordable dress from H&M to the 2014 MAMA ceremony on December 3, it has belatedly been revealed that IU’s dress worn to the 2014 Melon Music Awards (MMA) costs even less!
From the same brand as Kang So Ra’s off-the-shoulder blue lace dress that costs 39,000 KRW (approximately $35 USD), IU’s floral-print chiffon dress costs 35,000 KRW (approximately $31 USD).
Last month, on November 13, IU made her appearance at the 2014 MMA red carpet dressed in a beautiful floral-print dress. However, at the time, the singer’s dress did not become much of a hot topic, as no one would have guessed it to be such an affordable price for a large public event like MMA.
IU customized the original H&M design by making a few adjustments: the rectangular cut-outs were covered up and the length of the dress was shortened in the front, creating a high-low style that is fitting for her own body. The dress can be purchased at H&M for about $25.
