There’s so much to love about the fierce and fabulous looks from Lee Chae-rin, who goes by the alias CL. The 27 year-old rose to fame when she was the leader, main vocalist and rapper for the now-defunct girl group 2NE1. The group put out top songs like Lonely (2011), Falling in Love (2013) and Come Back Home (2014), before disbanding in 2016.
Despite so, Lee didn’t flinch. She went on to debut as a solo artiste in America in 2014, releasing her first song, Hello B*tches, just a year later. In 2018, she ventured into film, starring as Queen (how apt!) in Mile 22, alongside Mark Wahlberg and John Malkovich.
She’s also known for her bad-girl streetwear-inspired style. However, there are moments where she switches it up, stepping out in something understated and elegant that surprisingly, could sit well in an office setting. To commemorate her 28th birthday (which falls on the 26th of February), we have shortlisted five of her most fashionable looks that you, too, can rock from 9 to 5.
