SNSD’s Jessica for Coming Step

Around a week ago, SNSD’s Jessica’s photoshoot for the brand Coming Step was revealed and finally I got the motivation to review it. I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile now, because the photo shoot is lovely and Jessica looks great in it. The choice of using her as the model was a good one; Jessica’s appearance and mannerisms fitting better with the “cool city girl” concept the brand is trying to convey. You may not call Jessica the best model in the world — you could even say she tries too hard to model — but she looked virtually flawless in this endorsement.

The idea is basic and unoriginal, but effective. Here you have a pretty girl walking around the city, eating at cafes, and shopping in cute outfits, looking every bit like a high-society, fashionable city girl
