Akina Minami, 21, was named one of three winners of the inaugural Wedding Best Dresser Awards this week, despite being single and unattached. Minami won in the category of TV personality. In the model category, the award was scooped up by Marie, 23, while 19-year-old Tomomi Itano from AKB48 took the gong in the idol category -- both of whom are also single.
At the awards ceremony, Minami appeared in a wedding dress and told attendees, "All girls long for a white wedding, so I'm pleased to have been chosen for this award." When asked about her own wedding prospects, Minami replied, "I'd like to get married at around 24 or 25, but I don't have a boyfriend right now and my friends tell me it's not going to happen anytime soon. But when the day comes, my ideal ceremony would be at Disneyland with all my friends."
In response to the news that comedian Toshifumi Fujimoto, 39, of comedy group Fujiwara, and 23-year-old TV personality Yukina Kinoshita recently tied the knot in a hotel affiliated with the Tokyo Disneyland resort, Minami responded, "I've been beaten to it, so it's going to look like I'm copying them. I think I'll scratch that idea."© Compiled from news reports
