Someone asked their stylist, "Was SNSD's Gayo Festival Dolce and Gabbana outfits copied or is it an homage?"

Stylist replied, "It's an homage. How could I copy something I've never seen in real life... I liked the feel of the clothes so much and thought they'd look pretty so I chose it as their concept for their hair and red lips too... if they're similar enough for people to think it's copied, then I guess I can take it as praise of our team sewing each thread and our work looking as high quality enough as a luxury brand. Until the day Dolce and Gabbana sponsors outfits like pop stars~~"

1. [+257, -69] She obviously copied it and she's only calling it an homage now that there's controversy over it. tsk tsk, she's garnering Soshi hate.

2. [+253, -57] What a joke ㅋㅋㅋ How can she call it an homage if she claims in the same sentence that she's never seen it?

3. [+146, -43] Even though I'm a fan, I admit that it was wrong of them to copy clothing that they weren't sponsored. Fans love this stylist for always dressing SNSD beautifully but she needs to be more careful in the future. I hope the stylist or SNSD issues an official apology to prevent any further talk about it from coming out.

4. [+44, -44] This is why popularity is everything. The hypocrisy of people is all here. A Pink was hated on so much for plagiarizing their songs and clothes but SNSD gets into the same shit and people blame the stylist for "garnering SNSD hate" ㅋㅋㅋ Why does A Pink get hate and not their stylist but SNSD's stylist gets hate and not SNSD ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+43, -33] The stylist seems late on handling things. SNSD is in fact actually being sponsored by Dolce and Gabbana, they even sent them an e-mail for wearing their clothes earlier.

6. [+38, -24] This is nothing compared to the kids who wear the Japanese imperial flag and Nazi symbols ㅋㅋ

7. [+37, -26] Not like they're selling their outfits, it was just produced for use one time on stage. Kill the girls why don't you all with your hate ㅎㅎㅎ

8. [+36, -48] Let's not forget that Soshi fans hated on A Pink not their stylist for copying their clothes ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+25, -34] Soshi actually copies a lot of famous brands, just that it doesn't get known much. Their concert outfits and Taetiseo outfits.. a lot of them are copied. It's not even surprising anymore because so many girl groups do it.

10. [+24, -17] They're not even selling these outfits for profit, they were produced in hommage and Dolce and Gabbana don't even care
