How K-Pop Stars Took Over the Front Row at Fashion Week

In an age dominated by influencers, few stars can claim the mass international following of K-pop phenoms — and top fashion houses are taking note.

Celine’s spring ’20 show at Paris Fashion Week featured Blackpink’s Lisa, who works with the label’s designer, Hedi Slimane. The star created a media maelstrom as she posed in a white turtleneck and glittery skirt.

But Lisa wasn’t the only Blackpink star to take on Fashion Week. Rapper and singer Jennie serves as a Chanel brand ambassador. She nabbed a front row seat at the Grand Palais alongside Cardi B, posing in a purple sweater, baby blue crop top and mom jeans.

Meanwhile, Rosé, her bandmate, went to Saint Laurent’s Paris show. The New Zealand-born star sported a shiny black blazer dress with ankle-strap pumps.

The City of Lights wasn’t the only fashion week to get a Blackpink visitor. Singer and actress Jisoo wore a checked skirt-suit and embellished pumps to Burberry’s London Fashion Week show, accessorizing with a logoed handbag.

Also on hand for Burberry was NCT’s Lucas Wong. The rapper-singer looked dapper in a plaid shirt, khaki pants and chunky black trainers.
