Nakashima Mika, who is famously known for changing her "look" every now and then, have been sporting her line-straight bangs for nearly half a year now. Rumor has it that her image will once again be going through a change very soon. Mika was seen doing a magazine photoshoot under the guise of a lady club singer of the 1920's and 30's. The look was said to be very seductive with dark eyeliners, red lipstick, and curly hair; All of which was supervised by Mika herself. The set of this photoshoot took place at a night club which was built in 1931. A lot of detail was said to be put into this photo session, with Nakashima Mika greatly contributing artistically to the project.
