Inoue Mao Official Blog
Kouhaku Outfit 5

21st January 2012 09:03:59
Theme: Staff Diary

The last one is a red dress.

Keita Maruyama-san designed this just for Mao-san!!
Stylist Onu-san and Keita-san discussed on the perfect silhouette for Mao-san.
It's really cute. Even the bracelet was hand-made.

The completed outfit had such a beautiful silhouette, it's gorgeous.
Keita-san and all the staff, thank you very much!

Dress: Keita Maruyama

Bracelet: Keita Maruyama
Hair Accessory:  Gap International
Shoes: Sergio Rossi

This dress was the last one she changed into, when Tendo Yoshimi-san appeared onstage.

Since it was the last change, the president and I watched her from the back of the hall.
My tears couldn't stop flowing looking at Mao-san on stage with the rest of the artistes singing so passionately at the ending.

Fighting for time during the outfit and hairstyle change was really a challenge but with 'Team Mao'; make-up artist Kikuji-san, stylist Onu-san and fitter Odagiri Sensei, we were able to complete everything without a hitch.

From the design submitted by Sonoda-san after the public appeal, the sakura dress created by Noda-san and the red dress made by Keita-san, Kouhaku will be memories cherished for a lifetime.

Once again, to everyone who gave their support during Kouhaku, thank you very much!!

    2. hi unleash..
      sorry for the very late reply, been busy with work, need to catch up to pass my monthly scorecard.. hehe..

      I haven't watched it yet, I'm still looking for a small size that I can download because some of the release are on HD. I'm using a notebook and it might give up in the middle if I will download HD video.. hehe, but I'll definitely watch it! ^_^
