Yuri‘s fashion is always on point, but newer Girls’ Generation‘s fans might not know the truth about her iconic “I Got A Boy” aviators.
This classic, sexy accessory was practically made for Yuri. It gave her a rebel-chic look and helped her stand out from her members…
…but those sunglasses weren’t supposed to be part of the wardrobe.
At the group’s 2013 V Concert, Yuri revealed that she had gotten an eye infection shortly before shooting for the “I Got A Boy” music video. Since she couldn’t wear make-up, the stylist put her in sunglasses instead.
The sunglasses may have been unintentional, but they are such a memorable part of the music video that it’s hard to imagine “I Got A Boy” without them. In fact, some fans first noticed Yuri because of the aviators!
Yeah my first Bias when i saw i got a boy was Yuri her with Sunglasses won my heart 😂😂

Yuri still looks as sexy in sunglasses now as she did back in 2012. She can be often be seen wearing them out in public…
…in a variety of styles.
She’s even worn them underwater!
