The term 'Kuro Gyaru' just describes that you're extremely tanned and wear gyaru style so it's not an independant fashion style.
With our shooting we just want to define the fashion what most of the kuro gals wear lately.
Because not everybody of us is tanned we have to expand the term from
96Gal (Kuro Gyaru) to 46Gal (Shiro Gyaru) or Kuronba, Tsuyome or d.i.a.-gyaru. So, you see, you can call that style by a lot of synonyms ^^
|~ Mao ~ top, belt and skirt: d.i.a.|
Blonde-streaked hair, tanned skin and strong make up left a lasting impression.
|~ Hani ~ top: Tally Weijl, shorts: off brand|
After a short time the style seperated into Shiro Gyaru (white skin) and Ganguro (dark tanned face).
Striking sexy clothing was absolutely necessary and different styles grew apart like Gonguro (tanned body, extremly bleached hair and strong panda make up), Manba (colorful hair and much more stronger panda make up).
But there were also less extreme styles of tanned Gals, for example Banba (lighter version of Manba) Kuronba, Tsuyome...
