Jennie Went Full Hepburncore at “The Idol” Photocall
Just put a bow on it! Blackpink's Jennie channeled her inner Audrey Hepburn circa Roman Holiday for The Idol's photocall in at the Cannes Film Festival.
Jennie, who has a role in the controversial new HBO series, looked like she stepped right out of the '50s in her sweet middle-parted style with not one but two prim and proper black bows — from Chanel, no less. (Jennie is an ambassador for the French fashion house, just as Hepburn was for Givenchy in her time.) The musician's dark hair was pulled back right at the center of her head and fastened with one larger bow, then twisted down her back with another Chanel logo bow tied at the end. Jennie's choppy soft curtain bangs were pushed away from her face and skimmed her brows just so, giving her a retro feel while still feeling fresh and modern. Does she not look just like Hepburn as Princess Ann in Roman Holiday before she cuts her hair, just updated for 2023?
The rest of the pop star's look was equally timeless; she wore a strapless black and white A-line cocktail gown from Chanel with chunky black platforms and diamond drop earrings for the event. Jennie and her glam team kept her makeup minimal with fresh skin, full arched brows and just a subtle touch of black eyeliner, plus blotted rose pink lip color. Hepburn must be an inspiration for Blackpink, as Jennie's bandmate Jisoo has also channeled the icon in the past.
Jennie has been making a major impact on the red carpet this year, what with her The Idol appearances in Cannes and her Met Gala debut, where she wore — you guessed it — Chanel, pairing her '90s archival vintage with another braided hairstyle and Chanel hair accessory, this time a camellia flower tucked behind one ear. For the Met, Jennie turned up the volume on her beauty look with lots of pastel pink and lavender shades, colored contacts and a strip of fluttery false lashes for a flirty, coquettish vibe. There's a reason her fans call her "Human Chanel!"
