Jennie chose a monochrome look for her first Cannes moment. Scroll through to see what she wore for the event.
Blackpink’s Jennie is the second member of the K-Pop girl group to debut at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Rosé had attended the red carpet event last week, dressed in a chic black YSL gown. Meanwhile, Jennie slipped into a gorgeous Spring 2020 Haute Couture custom Chanel gown for the occasion. Referred affectionately as ‘Human Chanel’ by her fans ‘Blinks’, the classic French luxury fashion house ensemble was a perfect choice. She embraced the old Hollywood style with the look. Check out the snippets from the red carpet below.
Jennie wore a white lace dress, originally modelled on the runway by Kaia Gerber. The knee-length dress features a skirt and bodice of white lace with a tulle underlay, allowing for an adorable, vintage silhouette. The corseted torso provided a structure to the gown and highlighted her svelte frame. Jennie opted to wear the black tulle sleeves off her shoulders to lend a classic old Hollywood touch.
Jennie accessorised the monochrome gown with a black bow in her hair, peep-toe heels with bow adornments, and statement rings. Lastly, she chose pulled-back open locks, ruby pink lip shade, winged eyeliner, rouged cheeks, dewy glass skin, feathered brows, and mascara on the lashes.
Meanwhile, The Idol is set to premiere June 4 on HBO.
