BLACKPINK’s Jennie and STRAY KIDS Shine at Met Gala

The Met Gala, the pinnacle of fashion events, dazzled on May 6 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It spotlighted BLACKPINK’s Jennie and STRAY KIDS. Both groups made remarkable impressions on the red carpet.

Elegant and Sexy: Jennie Wows in Alaïa Dress

Jennie made her second consecutive Met Gala appearance looking elegant in a cobalt blue Alaïa dress. The bold design featured an exposed abdomen, chains, and pearl drop earrings, highlighting her sophistication and allure.

Vogue Taiwan praised Jennie’s ensemble, describing her as both elegant and sexy, resembling a supermodel. Her meticulously crafted dress took over 200 hours to create, using 13 meters of fabric. This represented a departure from her previous Met Gala debut, where she wore a girlish black and white Chanel dress.

Stray Kids’ Collective Debut at Met Gala

Meanwhile, STRAY KIDS made their Met Gala debut, marking the first time a K-pop group attended as a collective. Invited by the renowned brand Tommy Hilfiger, they made a statement with custom-made overcoats and colourful suits, each showcasing their individuality.

Foreign media highlighted the significance of the group’s attendance as a milestone in K-pop’s influence on fashion. Their collective presence signifies the continued elevation of K-pop in the global fashion scene.

Unexpected Interaction: Jennie and Stray Kids Cross Paths

The stars aligned when Jennie and STRAY KIDS crossed paths at the event. A photographer captured the exact moment Stray Kids first saw the BLACKPINK member.

Felix and Lee Know were noticeably surprised. The younger group immediately stood up to greet Jennie, who debuted two years earlier in 2016.

Fans loved seeing the interaction and praised Jennie for making them feel at home. The two groups even had a photo together, with Jennie in her royal blue dress contrasting the black, white, and red attire of the JYP Entertainment boy group.
