Blackpink’s Jennie Transforms Into Human Chanel in a White Minidress for Her Met Gala Debut

Blackpink’s Jennie Kim made history headlining Coachella with Rosé, Lisa, and Jisoo, and now, the K-pop star is hitting another milestone: attending her first-ever Met Gala. The Chanel ambassador, dubbed “human Chanel” by her fans, arrived at the Met Gala honoring the fashion house’s late creative director Karl Lagerfeld. Jennie was naturally decked out in full Chanel, wearing a vintage Chanel white minidress, adorned with a white rose. She accessorized with black tights and heels.

Jennie is having one of her biggest years ever in her career. In addition to her work with Blackpink, she is part of the long-delayed series The Idol, where she’ll act alongside Lily-Rose Depp and The Weeknd. The show will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival.

Jennie spoke to ELLE for its December 2022/January 2023 issue about how she de-stresses amid all that’s happening in her career. “For the past few years, having my close friends, having my family around, and just trying to balance that work life and personal life was very important for me,” she said. “Because once you get caught in one life, if that’s not balanced, I think that’s when everything starts collapsing. I don’t think one specific thing could de-stress me because we’ve got something going on every single moment, but keeping a positive mind, just taking care of your mental health and your body, is definitely something that I do...I meditate, stretch, read, sleep.”

She also revealed that making her acting debut in an American series was not something even she could’ve anticipated before it happened. “The thing is, it was definitely not planned,” she said. “I’ve had a dream of acting in the future, as I was doing so many different parts already as an artist, so I’ve always wondered what it would be like. But the opportunity just came to me so naturally one day. And I just knew that it was something that I would regret if I didn’t go for it.”
