Rola looking for boyfriend: 'That’s why I dress in skimpy outfits'

102 Comments

Model and TV "talent" Rola, 24, says she is looking for a boyfriend and hopes that her skimpy outfits will attract the man of her dreams.

Rola made the remarks while giving fashion advice to 20 girls shopping in GU Shibuya Parco in her role as “Goddess of GU." The new store opened Wednesday.

Rola, who appears in a new ad campaign for GU, praised the new “GU Fitting” service, available only at Shibuya Parco until June 30. It allows shoppers to walk around Shibuya wearing GU clothing before they decide whether they want to buy it or not.

Asked what kind of clothes attract guys, Rola replied, “I think showing parts of your body is cute, especially the shoulder."

However, she said, "I haven't met any guy I am really attracted to recently. I can't wait to fall head over heels in love with someone. That's why I wear skimpy outfits at times."

That BU "Wear Love" TV commercial is truly horrendous. And why no Japanese faces in the commercial other than bi-cultural model and TV “talent” Rola?

Skimpy clothes is really important to me. The shoulder is nice, but my favorite part is the third rib on the left side, however I'll even take the first rib...when I can see that, I definitely know I will fall in love with her.

Lady you will need way more than skimpy outfits to attract a man. Personally don't understand what people see in her..u

For the love of God, pleeeeez don't give any advice to girls. The last thing we need are 50 million Rolas running around Japan! ....that said, admittedly a very pretty girl. ....but not the sharpest pencil in the box.

I get ill watching let alone listening to her. If she kept her mouth shut and her fingers from her cheeks and that stupid pout, it would be ok.

There seem to be a spate of truly awful commercials on telly these days that aim to really put the customer off whatever the product is. The middle-aged bloke drinking shochu on his own is one, also the one with the generously-proportioned, heavily made-up lady thinking about recycling her tacky blingy jewellery to pay for a holiday, the plastic surgeon living it up in the Middle East - and now this is another one.

Having trouble finding that right guy? Just take off your clothes. That always attracts the best men. I predict her first marriage will be over within 2 years... if it takes even that long.

My advice to "Rola", from someone who's been happily married for 14 years, and known my wife for 18:

Shoulders wrinkle. Pert bums sag, waists spread. This is quite normal, and happens even to the most fastidious of us over time. My wife is just as beautiful to me today as she was 18 years ago not because of the skimpiness of her outfits, but because of the beauty of her character, and her multitude of talents, including sharpness of mind. If you think that you are going to find happiness merely through the skimpiness of your clothes.... I feel sorry for you.

what kind of advice is that to give to young women. "dress like a slut and you'll attract the man of your dreams"? how about acting confident, smart and dressing classy?

20 ( +21 / -2 )

Well if you want really tight skimpy clothes then GU is definately the place to shop. Everything they sell seems to shrink to child size proportions after the first wash.

6 ( +6 / -0 )

Yeah, GU is not at all unlke Uniqlo some 10 years ago, when everything you bought there would shrink in the very first wash. Or the elastic would lossen up. Or the colors would fade. Cheap clothes aren't necessarily good when you're having to replace them in a fraction of the time you would with something well-made.

Aaah, sorry, I would marry almost any Japanese girl on the street before this chic, and it's ain't got nothin' to do with skimpy outfits.

1 ( +5 / -4 )

It bears mentioning that Lola's an idiot if she thinks dressing like a floozy is the best way to net a winner. It's be nice if she wouldn't spread this kind of garbage to the young women of Japan. It'd be even better if Japanese media didn't trip over itself to help perpetuate the degrading message that a woman's sole value is in her sexual appeal.

And the World Bank thinks Japan can turn things around by getting more women into the wokforce? It'll never happen with the Lola mindset being brandished as an ideal.

I thought she was dating this geinoujin called Arita. anyway, not my type ...fashion wise or VOICE wise, but I like that she just says what she thinks and doesn't care about what people think.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Give her a break. She is just saying what she has to and appear to like the product she is promoting as part of her job. If you are down on her, you should be against the whole marketing industry, which is mostly about trying to convince people through desire and fear that they need to buy too many superfluous products.

Yeah thats exactly what I was thinking! But Uniqlo has really upped their game in recent years IMO. The shame and stigma of wearing uniqlo is gone... or so I like to tell myself.

I guess the thought of attracting a man with her personality, stimulating conversation, and trying to connect through sharing things in common never crossed her mind.

She's confused: her current strategy won't find her Mr. Right, only Mr. Right now.

If that's what she's after then hey, look no further!

5 ( +6 / -1 )

come ON people.. give her a break, she is just doing her job. her father who didn't make much money while she was growing up, divorced her mom and remarried a chinese woman, she was working part time pretty much her entire teenage life, to support the family including her twin siblings, she was the one who took care of the little twins on a daily basis and when she started working as a model, she gave most of the money to her family. even when her father got arrested, she did not say anything bad about him, instead, she apologized to the public. whatever "image" you have, I personally think she is actually a nice girl.

We don't own a T.V. so I was not too familiar with her but after watching a couple of videos all I can think is thank goodness neither of my two daughters are anything like she portrays herself!

If you are down on her, you should be against the whole marketing industry

Horse puckey. When you're someone whose entire career is built upon a well-cultivated image of a bubble-headed sex kitten, then you'd better be ready to receive some criticism for crap like this. She's promoting the idea that dressing scantily is the only way a girl can get a guy. Her being particularly attractive as it is certainly doesn’t help matters. She’s telling girls all around Japan that being pretty isn’t enough. Dressing like you’re in the butcher’s showcase is the only way to attract men. And it’s just not true.

This has nothing to do with the marketing industry at all, and everything to do with reinforcing blatantly sexist stereotypes that reduce women to the role of sperm receptacles for "their men." It’s bullshit from start to finish, and taking such a blase attitude towards it contributes greatly to the problem.

she was working part time pretty much her entire teenage life, to support the family including her twin siblings…

Which makes it even worse. She already possesses character traits that I believe most men would find attractive. But she chooses to eschew who she actually is to be what society tells her men really want, i.e., a ready-to-hop-in bed sex kitten. Again, at the risk of boring anyone here, it’s bullshit.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Sorry, but is she completely Japanese or western or a bit of both? Its hard to tell from the video.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

fishy - she is not the only one who is living a tough life in this world, her tough life is not an excuse to be the ambassadress to promote dumbness to Japanese women. Yes indeed she worked hard for her family, why not show those traits of women instead of acting dumb and dressing like a doll? Becuase it's her Job? well unfortunately her Job influences many girls in real life thinking that it's fine to be just cute , immature and dumb.

LFRAgain - Well Said!

M3M3M3:

She is a "quarter" Japanese.

And the story about looking for a boyfriend is of course just a hamfisted attempt to get some PR. Maybe she did not get enough TV bookings lately.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

She is just doing her job promoting GU's skimpy outfits. But also sending a really poor message to young girls about what gets the right man. I would give her a run if she wants an old reliable bloke.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Clothes and outfits are always a plus to find someone. I don't get why you would say the contrary. Your future boyfriend/husband will probably not choose you for your appearance only, but this will at least "attract" him, that is make him notice you, which is a big deal when you don't know each other yet. I mean how can he notice your other qualities if you have not even talketod each other ?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

When I see this woman in photos, I have to concede that she is extremely good looking.

But when I see her on TV, doing that squeaky voice, puffy-out cheek thing and making what I assume are supposed to be cutesy gestures with her fingers, it puts me right off my stroke. She really is profoundly irritating.

In any other country, my advice to a woman who wants a boyfriend would be to act like a woman, not a five-year old. But in this neck of the woods, that advice might not be best heeded.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

AKBfan - well her JOB contributes to why women in Japan are getting unfair treatment in the society. Seems like no big deal but this is the root of all these sexism issue in this country.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

So much hate here. I don't even know her. But some comments are really dumb. It's like saying to a sportsman that he is dumb because he is doing commercial for sports equipmemt saying "with this equipmenf I will win". Obviously the guy doing the commercial knows well that the guy using it is the most important. It's commercial, wake up. And what's wrong with wearing sexy clothes to attract a boyfriend anyway ? Doesn't mean you need to be dumb or deny other qualities.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Wow, why all the Rola hate? You guys do realise that the way she acts is just that, an act. Her job is to promote products and services and she just did that, she told women they can attract men with what they wear.

Also any guy who says he was only attracted to the inner being of his wife or girlfriend is lying.

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

Hmmm.. Not sure I agree that wearing skimpy clothes is a contributor to unfair treatment of women in Japan. Think there are far greater cultural issues at play. Having sadi that Rola can be quite annoying and her equation of getting a good husband with dressing like a tart is a bit puerile.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

@Gerard: That's why it's even MORE sickening that to 'succeed' here as a woman --and she is that, believe it or not-- you have to become that 'image'. Yes, Gerard some men require and need depth of character and intellect from their partners, as well as --not just-- aesthetics. Believe it, the relationship is a lot more rewarding. You should try it out!

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Quasar80 - there is nothing wrong with promoting a clothing line,promoters can be sexy or cute as long as they want to. Sending a wrong message to the consumers is the problem here though.It should be a responsible advertising. A sportsman cannot just promote a sports product and lie about what it can really do. Advertising messages plays a very important role to consumers' lives since our lifestyle depends on the products that we consume.

The sad thing is, this really is what many J female aspire to be. Many men here lap it up because it makes them feel strong and "manly" to have a twit on their arm who they think is stupid. I HATE that many females play this stupid game because most are NOT stupid. Better to be thought of as an airhead than be single.

This has to be the most shallow piece of journalism I've ever read... with that being said, I'd still date her.

Wakarimasen - sure it does, the whole country is telling that women should be like Rola to get attraction from man? to act stupid and childish because that's what Japanese men are fond of? of course there are other factors in their culture that contirbutes to these issues, btu definitely this one is inside that package.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

she told women they can attract men with what they wear.

No, she told women they can attract men by wearing less. Her message wasn't about wearing stylish or fashionable clothes. It was about wearing fewer clothes. That's not promoting a product. that's promoting and idea. The idea here is that tits & ass are by far the greatest single asset a woman can bring to the table if she wants to find a suitable mate. And that's utter garbage.

It's like saying to a sportsman that he is dumb because he is doing commercial for sports equipmemt...

Clearly, you don't get this at all. It's nothing like your analogy. If we wanted to make your analogy fit, it would be more like a sportsman telling viewers that eschewing the boat when deep sea bass fishing will get you closer to the really big catches.

Lola is promoting the idea that dressing to advertise your sexual assets is the best path to landing a boyfriend. She's saying, "I'll put out if you'll be Mr. Right." And as another poster already noted, the only men this approach generally attracts are Mr. Right Now. I don't want my children, whether a boy or girl, learning that this paradigm is acceptable under any circumstance.

I'm not saying that sexual attraction doesn't enter into the picture, and I'm most certainly not advocating some sort of prudish, Victorian-era idea of feminine sacrosanctity. I have no issues with my wife when she’s at her sexiest -- which can just as easily be in a beat-up pair of old jeans and a t-shirt as in very little at all. But that’s because the attraction is for the entire package. Not just the window dressing. Any guy who says he was only attracted to the physical assets of his wife is either lying, or completely deserves the misery that kind of shallowness invariably brings.

Sexual attraction is hardwired into human beings as a species; it's how we keep the whole noisome lot going. But humanity is not solely about procreation. And encouraging other young women to dress like tarts in order to attract a prospective mate cheapens the value of women in society, not only as our mothers, sisters, friends, and lovers, but also as simple human beings with the same capacity to be smart, witty, creative, strong, faithful, encouraging, innovative, protective, and proud as any man out there. Unfortunately, we may never know this full capacity as longs as society continues to promote this, "women are only at their best when in bed" pap that continues to cripple and hold back a full half of the entire human population.

I have to add that it is not just Japan where being shallow and often downright unlikeable while trading on your looks or some other quirk is popular. Any scan of a whole lot of reality TV in the US and UK (e.g. Big Brother, TOWIE, Jersey Shore, that Chelsea dross etc etc) will show that it is almost as prevalent there too. ROLA does ok in making a decent living out of here racial mix, couple of identifiable "quirks" and mannerisms and her good looks.

Plus there is something little bit sweet about the guileless naivity with which our hosts view the muck that is served them up on TV and the media.

I assume you are talking about the clothes. However, Rola needs to be told that is what happens to her if she seriously means portraying herself as cheap is going to get a good guy. The guys will just move on to the next cheap girl.

Can't stand her laugh, her voice, her facial expressions. She doesn't even approach sexy. She is permanently in the sexless 12-yr-old category.

“I haven’t met any guy I am really attracted to recently. I can’t wait to fall head over heels in love with someone. That’s why I wear skimpy outfits at times.”

And I am sure this statement is heartfelt. [roll eyes]

This is most obviously the add campaign. Rola, or Lola, or whatever her name is, is promoting. She could obviously get a boyfriend, if she doesn't have one, which she probably doesn't, but only because she is quite busy, if she is a famous talent, or model, or whatever she is. I've never heard of here, but I am hardly her target audience.

That said, as a promotion, I see nothing wrong with the pitch:

"Young single and lonely women! There is nothing wrong with dressing a little sexy."

In fact, I completely agree. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a young women dressing a little sexy.

Granted, all advertising is bullSh&t, and this is an add. But that is the problem of advertising, mass media, people falling for pop culture, fasion, etc etc, and NOT the sentiment that

"Lola is promoting the idea that dressing to advertise your sexual assets is the best path to landing a boyfriend." This video does not say that. Not even the sentence quoted : "hopes that her skimpy outfits will attract the man of her dreams." It simply means she hope it will help. There is nothing weird in saying that. It usually helps getting in touch with someone, before knowing him that is.

Also about shallowness of japanese girls. I think there is a difference between being dumb and shallow or just keep it simple. I do think most of the japanese women just keep it simple and don't try too hard to look like a sophisticated woman with deep thoughts.

The comments are very hypocritical as most guys seem to know that Rola, which means they watch her in her revealing outfit. And they'll be commenting the next bikini pin up JT will post too. Also, except the skater skirt (which is a pandemic), the clothes on the video are more for the Audrey Hepburn wannabe bachans.

There is nothing wrong with a young women dressing sexy.

I agree as long as they are not too young. She's 24, she knows what she does. That's probably poor quality outfit and customers don't care, they wear stuff 2 or 3 times at best, then go to buy a new one. I find the waste is way more shocking than bad fashion. And those girls in Bangladesh's sweatshops... are they happy that their compatriot Rola does the add ?

I could imagine having a job where one had to behave like an airhead all the time to get a paycheck.

Why imagine ? You've not done the JET ? Well, you didn't have the same fashion requirement. Probably the income is proportional to the surface of flesh shown.

Assuming you mean by bikini girls you mean of age, why is that hypocritical? Maybe your "most guys" like Rola, and like bikini girls. Or they don't like Rora, and do like bikini girls.

JTDanMan,

Yes, I used all of those words. And I meant them. But it would help if you'd remember to at least keep them in the context of how I used them. Dressing sexily in and off itself is not the issue. Telling young women that dressing sexily is the best path to finding a potential mate, however, is. I assumed that was pretty clear from my posts. However, if you can't see the distinction between simply dressing sexily versus openly endorsing dressing sexily in your capacity as a highy visible public celebrity as the best course of action for finding a boyfriend, then there's nothing more I can do to help you understand.

Quasar,

I've said not a single thing about the video. I don't give a whit about the video, in fact. What my comments are focused on clearly are the what she said to "20 girls shopping in GU Shibuya Parco." You know, the topic of the article? Did you actually read the story, or were you satisfied with just watching the YouTube clip? Perhaps you might want to read the actual article and then come back and discuss this.

I see. According to you, It's ok to dress sexily, but not to promote dressing sexily.

I wonder if you recognize the irony of your position.

At most charitable, you've asserted that an acceptable standard for sexual expression exists. You've been silent on just what passes that test. But you've made your feelings amply clear that those that promote or 'fall victim' to what lies outside of your approval is only something fit for a cheap, bubble-headed sex kitten floozy would wear.

That is the kind of language that denigrates females very few men could get away with.

Less charitably, you've presumed to be the gatekeeper for acceptable forms of sexual expression.

Well, you are not.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

JTDanMan,

Are you being purposefully obtuse here?

you've asserted that an acceptable standard for sexual expression exists.

Yes, I think even the most liberal observer would agree that this is so. But I'm not going to get dragged into a protracted debate with you about sexual mores and attitudes. This is a red herring of your creation that still does not address my initial and continuing complaint: Lola is a highly visible public figure who has cultivated the persona of a, yes, bubble-headed, sex kitten, then taken advantage of that celebrity status to publicly advocate dressing provocatively as the preferable method for landing a boyfriend, as if there couldn't possibly be any other way of attracting a man.

You, apparently, seem to support that position.

Again, if you can't fathom why a female public figure openly advocating the exploitation of one's sexuality as the preferable -- no, the only reasonable course for finding a partner, particularly against the backdrop of human history's long and well documented abuse and exploitation of women because of, for, and in contempt of their sexuality, then I can't help you, friend.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Rola said " “I think showing parts of your body is cute, especially the shoulder.” If you think showing the shoulder is "dressing provocatively," then you most certainly not the most liberal observer. You are being puritan.

Because you equate, "wearing skimpy outfits at times" (her words) with "openly advocating the exploitation of one's sexuality as the preferable -- no, the only reasonable course for finding a partner" (your words) you can't read.

The exploitation of women is all about controlling women's sexuality. You certainly appear to be quite interested in doing that. That alone is objectionable.

The moral censure you wish to place on women for wanting to be attractive to men (or other women for that matter) is disgusting.

Puritanical, in fact.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

If you think showing the shoulder is "dressing provocatively," then you most certainly not the most liberal observer. You are being puritan.

And this is you filtering Japan's sensibilities regarding what is appropriate and what is not through Western eyes. Again, to the point of tedium, it's not about dressing sexy in and of itself. It's the message.

The acrobatics you're employing to try to recast my argument as some sort of ironic sexism are laughable, at best. That you believe attraction for females is limited to purely to the physical, and that just such a message should be disseminated far and wide is disgusting.

Blatantly sexist, in fact.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Ah, and you are the best positioned to declare what the is the message? Of Japan's [sic] sensibilities? Your impartial observer must wonder: by what right or insight do you have this honor...

Oh, none.

If there is one thing you ought take away from this exchange, let it be this: no one has the right to speak for "Japanese Sensibilities." Not you. Not I. No one. So, please, do yourself the favor of not falling into that trap, and, hereafter, simply abjure foregoing the line of argument you so ham-fistedly attempted.

And, continuing that theme, you do little favor trotting out the banal allegation of sexism. Your impartial observer would, I fear, little distance between that slander, and Godwin's so-called law.

Bereft of those two follies, I fear your reply, as it were, lacks, well, anything of substance.

Look, I understand. My opinion puts you in the uncomfortable position of having to justify why you believe women exist solely to titilate men (or other women) sexually. And so you bite back, not wanting to be cast in any sort of negative light than makes you look like some sort of troglodyte holdover from 1950s America where a woman's place was best in the home at the beck and call of her man, and looking sexy for that man was part and parcel of the marriage contract. I get it. But don't blame me because those days are long gone.

That's the most unattractive dress I have ever seen her wear. Why was it selected? Anyway, I agree with pretty much everybody above. Except JTMan...

probably better to wear less given the recent heat waves and "cool biz" campaign

It will be better if she wear less and show some of her assets. She has to have more confidence in her figure. It is either that or she is just to uptight in thinking that no man is worthy of going out with her.

Well, that's not given to everybody to be a circus artist. That doesn't matter, that's not how you do your work. That's the situation before you step in... and it's still there after you, if you refuse to sing the song, they replace you by the next "clown" . Or did you succeed in making j-edu and the Monkasho change in anything ? You know well that Rola could be at the Diet and they'd take her for a clown, whatever she'd do and say, while they treat with respect Aso, Abe, and all the real jokes in that clique. I can't blame her for playing the girlie card to make a living in geinnokai. You said she could do something else ? Yes, as I said she could sew the clothes 12 hours a day. That would be wonderful if she could reverse the stereotype and make the show biz change.

Quite the model for young ladies out there: "Dress in skimpy outfits to get a man!" It'll definitely work, but I don't think you'll attract the kind of man you'll like for very long, or who's looking for anything beyond a good time.

If she wants to dress up sexy, all the power to her. If the sole purpose is to 'get the ideal man', she's probably going to be pretty disappointed unless her standards are next to nil. But again, if that's what she wants, she is a sad product of bad advertising, but let her have at it. My only request is that she not program the same garbage into little girls here.

This is incorrect. The first step in the huge majority of relationships is to generate some sort of attraction - which is almost always a physical attraction. Few girls will find men by dressing frumpy, just as few men will find women by dressing like slobs.

More than this is needed to extend a relationship beyond that first attraction, but without the initial attraction, the relationship will rarely even begin.

The only choice is between skimpy and frumpy? What happened to 'classy'?

She said "That’s why I wear skimpy outfits at times. And not "Dress in skimpy outfits to get a man!"

See the difference?

That works too.

The point being that saying 'dressing skimpy won't get you a man, or get you a good one' is not factually correct.

You got that right.

Or, as my sister says,

"A woman who doesn't know how turn it on will be lonely. And bitter. So will a woman who doesn't know how to turn it off."

Maybe Rola has a medical condition know as Fugu Tourette Syndrome... Would explain the constant 'puffing up' when in situations where she uncontrollably has these fits of puffer face ticks.

another simple minded talento will probably get knocked up followed by a shotgun wedding and a divorce a few year later.

Don't see what all the hoo har about her suggesting you show a little to attract the opposite sex. It's a time honoured practice and very, very much the fashion in the West right now.

If you look at what teens and kids in their 20's in many countries wear, they are incredibly revealing. The boys dress to show off as much of their inked and gym groomed muscles as they can, and the girls respond in kind. The West is a bigger flesh fest than it ever has been. Rola is just doing what a lot of people her age do.

If it makes any difference to you all, I'd happily bang her.

Makes no difference to me, tiger.
