K-pop star Jennie, a member of the globally renowned girl group BLACKPINK, has once again proven her immense popularity and influence as she emerged as the most-mentioned celebrity on Twitter during both the prestigious Met Gala and the glamorous Cannes Film Festival this year. As an ambassador for the iconic fashion house Chanel, it was only fitting that Jennie made a lasting impression with her impeccable style and grace at these star-studded events.
At the Met Gala, which adopted the theme “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” to honor the late fashion legend, Jennie paid a heartfelt tribute to Lagerfeld by donning a stunning ivory duchesse satin bustier dress sourced from Chanel’s Fall/Winter 1990/1991 Ready-to-Wear collection.
The vintage-inspired ensemble featured an elegant white camélia flower and a striking black ribbon, perfectly capturing Lagerfeld’s timeless aesthetic. Completing the look, Jennie accessorized with a Chanel bag, shoes, high jewelry, and makeup, while her hair was styled in a chic braid adorned with a coordinating camélia flower. The inclusion of black gloves, a choker, and tights added an extra touch of sophistication. The ensemble garnered widespread attention, amassing over 1 million mentions on Twitter.
Shortly after gracing the Met Gala’s red carpet, Jennie continued to captivate audiences at the Cannes Film Festival. The 27-year-old singer made her acting debut in the highly anticipated HBO original series, “The Idol,” and chose another Chanel creation to showcase her elegant charm. Jennie wore a mid-length white Chanel dress specially designed by Virginie Viard for the brand’s spring 2020 couture show, the first collection following Karl Lagerfeld’s passing. The dress featured a sweetheart bustier top in black silk tulle, accompanied by a petticoated skirt. Completing the ensemble were peep-toe heels adorned with a bow at the ankle strap, rings, and a bow-adorned headband, all from Chanel. Her ethereal appearance on the Cannes red carpet garnered over 900,000 mentions on Twitter.
Jennie’s back-to-back showstopping appearances at these renowned events not only solidified her status as a fashion icon but also highlighted her immense global popularity. With BLACKPINK‘s explosive rise to fame, Jennie has garnered an army of devoted fans worldwide who eagerly follow her every move. Her collaborations with Chanel as an ambassador further cement her influence in the fashion industry and her ability to effortlessly command attention on international platforms.
