Iconic K-pop star G-Dragon was awarded the top prize at the "2013 Style Icon Awards" (2013 SIA) which was held at CJ E&M Center located in Sangam-dong, Seoul, on Oct 24.

G-Dragon, 25, became the youngest person to take the honor of being the "style icon" of the year.

The leader of Big Bang is an undisputed fashionista who wore a gray-color suit and sported pink-dyed hair at the award ceremony.
