BLACKPINK's Jennie and Stray Kids make striking impression at Met Gala

The renowned Met Gala, the pinnacle event in the fashion world, dazzled at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on May 6 EST, drawing attention to BLACKPINK's Jennie and Stray Kids as they graced the red carpet.


Jennie made a striking appearance for the second consecutive year, showcasing her elegance in a cobalt blue Alaïa dress reminiscent of a flowing stream. The bold design, featuring an exposed abdomen, was accentuated with chains and pearl drop earrings, epitomizing sophistication with a hint of allure. Vogue Taiwan praised Jennie's ensemble, describing her as both elegant and sexy, resembling a supermodel on the prestigious red carpet.

According to reports, Jennie's meticulously crafted dress required over 200 hours to create and utilized 13 meters of fabric, signifying a departure from her previous Met Gala debut. Last year, Jennie captivated in a girlish black and white Chanel dress, reimagining a look from legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld's 1990s fall ready-to-wear collection.

Meanwhile, Stray Kids made their Met Gala debut, marking the first time a K-pop group attended as a collective. Invited as guests of the renowned brand Tommy Hilfiger, Stray Kids members made a statement with custom-made overcoats, revealing red, white, and navy-colored suits underneath, each showcasing their individuality.


Foreign media highlighted the significance of Stray Kids' attendance, noting it as a milestone in K-pop's influence on the fashion world. While previous years saw individual K-pop idols like Rosé, CL, and Johnny making appearances, Stray Kids' collective attendance signifies the continued elevation of K-pop's presence in the global fashion landscape.
