#MetroStyleWatch: Jennie of BLACKPINK Is The Chanel Muse To Look Out For
From Carine Roitfeld and Kate Moss to Cara Delevingne and Willow Smith, Chanel’s roster of muses is synonymous to the elite tier of the whole fashion industry. Whether they’re closing fashion week shows, headlining major campaigns, or starring in Karl Lagerfeld’s fashion films, these personalities breathe life to the French house’s idea of the contemporary woman and subsequently lead fashion’s royal pack.
And in case you haven’t been noticing, one of the faces who are currently carrying the torch for Chanel is a certain Jennie Kim, massively known as a member of the phenomenal K-pop girl group BLACKPINK. As part of the quartet, Jennie, along with her bandmates, has a girly street aesthetic when it comes to their stage outfits. But as Chanel’s official South Korean ambassador, the 23-year-old performer has a more refined taste in terms of her off-duty looks, thanks to her Chanel-sponsored wardrobe.
Whether she’s sitting front row in Paris, attending exclusive events, or serving airport looks, Jennie manages to add a touch of luxury in her girl-next-door outfits, proving that the she’s a rising fashion star to watch out for. From donning signature tweed pieces to putting together an updated streetwear-inspired look, check out Jennie’s 10 best Chanel moments straight from her Instagram feed below:
As an ambassador of Chanel, Jennie is on top of the VIP list at the brand’s events in Seoul. Here she is at the Metiers D’Art show back in 2018 rocking a nautical-inspired tweed set.
From Seoul to Paris, Jennie flew to sit front row at Karl Lagerfeld’s Spring/Summer 2019 show in a dainty blue suit, looking every bit of the Chanel darling that she is.
As expected, she also made an appearance at the Fall/Winter 2019 show where she picked an immaculate white mini dress cinched at the waist with a monogrammed belt.
At a store opening in Seoul graced by performer and Chanel collaborator Pharrell Williams, Jennie was the life of the party in a scarf top, red oversized cardigan, and statement earrings.
Chanel sure loves Jennie, and we’re quite certain that there’s a lot more chic accessories where that quilted cross-body bag came from.
At Coachella with BLACKPINK co-singer Lisa, Jennie didn’t miss the chance to try her hand at festival style with the summer slip dress of our dreams.
She won’t be a full-fledged K-pop idol if not for her cheeky take in fashion. Case in point: this fresh approach to a logo cardigan evokes class and sass.
Jennie is all about that doll-like vibe in this tweed beret and baby tee.
For an elevated airport look, Jennie flawlessly took on the luxe streetwear trend with a classic tweed jacket styled with wide-leg denims, a monogrammed cap, and chunky sneakers.
Copping a S/S ‘19 runway look, Jennie’s blinged up onesie seals her status as K-pop’s best dressed femme.
