How about Kaa-tan then? If you're gyaru you've probably heard of her or at least are familiar with the name.
If you're not gyaru she's practically the front girl of ganguro style.
Move over Buriteri, in the West this girl is probably most recognisable than you. Even if you don't know her by name you will definitely recognise her by face.
When it came to manba, back in the early 2000s Kaa-tan was your front girl. She modelled for Egg magazine back in it's glory days and became quite a prolific manba. After gracing the cover of Egg in July 2004 it looked as though nothing could bring her down!
That's when manba began to decline in popularity.
As popular as she became her descent was rather quick; by 2005 she was fading from the pages of egg and by 2006 you'd be lucky to catch a glimpse of her.
Kanae Watanabe did not leave gyaru style! She moved on to model for another magazine; Koakuma Ageha.
She also has her own blog called COMPRENDA. It's really nice to see that she hasn't completely abandoned gyaru! She's also really pretty underneath all of the manba make-up.
I'm sorry I haven't blogged about the older gyaru for some time (the last one I did was Buriteri back in August 2011 eek!), are there any others you would like to see?
