Is the term used to describe Japanese youth culture who cos-play or 'constume play' on Sundays in the district of Harajuku. Seen as rebels to conformity, Harajuku is a popular place for them to show off their own creations and usually pose for others. Syles include Gothic, Lolita, anime/manga based or futuristic.

-What Gwen Stefani forgets to mention it that many of the best Harajuku girls are actually men- >:D
"Hey Yuki? wanna go down to Harajuku this Sunday? iv just finished my last outfit"

"Gwen Stefani has mangled the Western view of Harajuku girls she can't even pronounce the name properly. HARA-JU-KU not HARASHHUUUKKU. i hope those back up dancers get paid really well.

A group of japanese girls who are currently being paid to follow around gwen stefani in various costumes and giggle in an attempt to give her street credit.

This credit is needed because
a. her new album sucks
b. she says "wicked" and "harajuku" way too many times on said album
c. her treatment of japanese culture and these women is borderline offensive, and unquestionably a form of cultural expropriation
"you harajuku girls, damn you've got some wicked style"
see: everysong on the damn album

or

Me: "Gwen, don't you think paying these women to be your bitches is kind of offensive?"
Gwen: "huh?!"

harajuku is a small district of tokyo where teens and young adults shop and hang out to explore their own fashion trends. i.e. visual kei, decora, elegant gothic lolita
so a harajuku girl is a young, female participant in this fashionable subculture.

the term "harajuku girl" may have been coined by pop singer gwen stefani, but should not be associated with her beyond the title of one of her 'songs' as she is a poser and knows less about tokyo than a wapanese.
gwen stefani is bastardizing tokyo street fashion for her own promotion. she should leave the harajuku girls alone and go back to ruining ska.

originates from japan. Harajuku girls have a very original style. They often mix and match a lot of different styles using things they bought from charity shops and very high priced designer clothes lines. It's extreme, surreal and super cute. Gwen Stefani is a huge fan- She's made songs about Harajuku and is even bringing out a Harajuku clothes line called L.A.M.B. (love angel music baby)
Harajuku girls, I'm looking at you girls
You're so original girls
You got the look that makes you stand out
Harajuku Girls, I'm looking at you girls
You mix and match it girls
You dress so fly and just parade around- Gwen Stefani 'Harajuku Girls'
