It may be quite rare to see Kou Shibasaki (40), who has a cool image …… of wearing a T-shirt and denim shorts, barefoot and flip-flops, looking so relaxed. What caught my eye more than anything else was the colorful mask with various colors such as red, blue, yellow, and green.
In August this year, Shibasaki suddenly appeared at a trunk room in Tokyo. Dressed in loungewear-like fashion, she began to carry in her belongings using a dolly. After finishing the work with the staff in less than an hour, she got into her car and started off. After stopping at a high-end supermarket with a wide selection of organic groceries, they drove off.
“In 2004, Ms. Shibasaki launched her own company, Retrograde, of which she is the president. She’s also active as an entrepreneur. In addition to running her fan club and her music business, Retrois sells apparel and miscellaneous goods online. The colorful mask is probably a sign that her work is going well and she is feeling positive,” said a major entertainment production person.
The new coronavirus continues to mutate, and it is unclear when it will end. Wearing a mask when going out has become a common practice. Celebrities are no exception. Some celebrities wear original masks that look great in photos. We would like to introduce you to some of the celebrities’ anti-infection measures and sense of style through their treasured images.
The eyes of the customers were riveted!
In May 2008, the eyes of customers and staff at a high-class supermarket in Roppongi, Tokyo, were riveted when she appeared. Her beautiful legs stretched out from her miniskirt, and her neat face was recognizable even when she was wearing a black mask. …… It was actress Kyoko Fukada (38).
Holding a pink purse and a leopard-print covered smartphone, Fukada slowly walked around the store while pushing a cart. She bought two bottles of wine in addition to a large amount of foodstuffs, enough to fill two paper bags.
“Fukada-san… Fukada is very careful about her health. She always wears a mask when she goes out. She wears a mask whenever she goes out, and has a good sense of fashion, using different colors of masks to match her clothes.
Riding a bicycle with a handmade mask
It was a sunny day in April 2008. In the middle of a sunny day in April 2008, a bicycle galloped down a shopping street in Tokyo. A woman on a mamacha (mom-chari) bicycle pedaled powerfully, her white pleated skirt fluttering. Child seats were attached to the front and back of the bike, and in the basket were foodstuffs such as Chinese cabbage bought at the supermarket.
The owner of the bicycle is Miho Kanno (44), wearing a handmade cloth mask with a pattern.
She is the heroine of “Our Daughter Can’t Find a Boyfriend! (Nippon Television Network Corporation), which started this January. It’s been four and a half years since she played a leading role. At first, she tried to refuse the offer because her two children were too young. Her husband, Masato Sakai, persuaded her. I’ll take care of the house,’ he said, reassuring Ms. Sugano.” (An employee of a commercial TV station)
The flamboyant mask was still a concern during the direct hit. ……
In September 2008, a reporter interviewed Izumi Mori (38), a member of Oscar, who was reported to have decided to resign from the company (she left Oscar in October of the same year).
I’m sorry about that.” Mori would only say that and not give a clear answer. But I was curious about the bright red mask she was wearing. “Where did you buy it? Is it handmade?” . Of course I couldn’t ask such dumb questions. But the flashy red mask certainly suited the fashion model Mori perfectly.
For a celebrity, a mask is not just an item to prevent infection. For celebrities, masks are not just an item to prevent infection, but also an important part of their fashion that enhances their own attractiveness.
