Kimonos on Monday: Yui Yokoyama – Part III – Special Collection
This week we take a look at some of the other Yuihan kimono outfits. These are a few odds-and-ends which did not fit to the theme of the last two posts. This gallery will span several years, while my mind wanders …
This is young Yui soon after she joined AKB48. What a beautiful, fresh face. She would grow to be one of my favorites.
Ha ha. I really went back in time here. Yes, that is Yui! Here she is enjoying the bright sunshine in her little kimono outfit. I don’t know what kind of cookie that is. Can someone tell me what she is eating?
This one is a little more recent (about three years ago). This is probably my favorite kimono outfit of hers. I have a full-length shot of this kimono in my “No Politics” page (see my main pages).
Oh, goodness gracious! Do you remember how ravishing Yui looked in that “Kodoku na Hoshizora” music video? Here she is getting ready to perform in the video. Of course, a good foot rub between takes may help the young idol relax.
“Not Yet? If you say so Yuihan. I think you need that foot rub right NOW!”
Nice Zen-like perspective. Was it Yui who did the raking? I wish the photographer was less worried about showing the Zen gravel, and more interested in those tootsies. Perhaps I could be of service? LOVING THAT PURPLE!
That HAS to feel good Yui! … and might I suggest also a …. well .. you know …
I do not know the where and why of this shot. I know it is for a movie, and that is it. Of course Yuihan is “movie star beautiful” … maybe too beautiful for Hollywood.
On the web site www.viki.com there is a program about Yui Yokoyama in Kimono. During this recent special TV program, Yuihan takes the viewer on a tour of Kyoto … her birthplace city! Of course, there is A LOT of walking … which might make her feet tired … and so … you know …
