17 Times G-Dragon Lived His Best Life
Let’s celebrate G-Dragon’s 6 million Instagram followers together! Here’s lots of proof that GD is your ultimate #lifegoals reference.
First, there was the time Marc Jacobs celebrated BIGBANG‘s comeback by gifting a $3,800 Super Trooper bag with a custom gold “MADE for G-DRAGON” tag:
And Saint Laurent gave thanks to GD with this $1,990 leather duffle bag.
There was the time Monsieur G-Dragon was officially part of Chanel’s “private circle” for their casino-themed couture show in Paris:
And because Chanel really loves him, they gifted him a $3,400 canvas graffiti backpack:
And these $7,200 quilted headphones.
There was also the time he just wanted to relax in his first-class seat, so he busted out the rainbow sequin pants:
And Instagrammed a single-journey ticket to ride the Seoul subway. You know, to commemorate that one time G-Dragon took public transit… and it turned out to be to shoot a scene in the “We Like 2 Party” music video that got 26 million views on YouTube: #hesnothingliketherestofus
Because we all know that, normally, GD has other means of transportation to get around the city… such as this $489,000 matte black Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
There was the 63-year-old $2,000 scotch that he enjoyed:
But what’s a 53-year-old scotch when you’ve got the most special vintage of Dom? #1988
Then there was that time the chefs on “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator” went through G-Dragon’s groceries and found caviar, truffles, and foie gras. And G-Dragon explained that hey, caviar and truffles just make the perfect toppings for eggs and pancakes:
And recently, like right now, G-Dragon is collaborating with Giuseppe Zanotti to launch two pairs of shoes. The shoes are unisex, because GD is FOR THE FUTURE and removing antiquated notions of gender-based everything — half his clothes are from the women’s collections anyway!
And we can’t forget that Thom Browne sends G-Dragon his entire collection every season (because he looks really good in it, and it makes the whole world want to buy it).
Obviously, one running theme here is that G-Dragon gets free stuff. Way too much to mention all of it. But there was the time Giyongchy thanked Givenchy for the free Seventeen watch:
But preferred to wear a $27,000 diamond Chanel Boy Friend watch… which hadn’t even been released for sale at the time he wore it.
There was the time BIGBANG posed for Vogue Korea, and of course, G-Dragon was the one in the $30,000 Saint Laurent fuchsia mink coat.
And finally, there was the time that G-Dragon made the Business of Fashion 500 list. Why is this even a big deal? Because the BoF500 list isn’t some flashy compilation of beautiful celebrities. It’s a list that’s comprised of the real influencers in fashion — plenty of models, actors, and designers, but also the producers, investors, and editors who really dictate what’s happening behind the scenes. Every K-pop fan already knows that GD is an influencer — and now the international fashion industry agrees.
In short, it’s G-Dragon’s world and we’re just living in it.
