Rosé and CL As First Female K-Pop Artists To Attend Paris Fashion Week

Rosé from K-pop girl group Blackpink and CL, the rapper and former member of K-pop group 2NE1, made their Met Gala red carpet debut on Monday.

The event has previously been attended by male K-pop stars, including Psy of "Gangnam Style" fame, but Rosé and CL are the first female K-pop artists to attend.

The annual fundraiser for New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art—organized and presided over by Anna Wintour, former Vogue editor-in-chief and now Conde Nast's chief content officer—has been held since 1948 to raise money for the museum's Costume Institute. Last year it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Met Gala is one of the biggest, most glamorous nights in the fashion industry and both K-pop stars are no strangers to the world of high couture.

Rosé, who has been a global ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent since July 2020, wore a little black dress from the French fashion house's winter 2021 collection, adorned with a large white bow at the front.'

Her look was paired with an embellished choker made of heart-shaped pieces, statement drop earrings and black stiletto heels. Rosé walked the red carpet alongside YSL's creative director Anthony Vaccarello.

Back in January, the New Zealand-born member of Blackpink was announced as the newest muse for YSL Beauté, the fashion label's beauty brand. In April this year, she became the new face of luxury jewelry brand Tiffany & Co., being named its latest global ambassador.

CL, who is an ambassador for Beyonce's Ivy Park fashion brand, has previously walked for the fashion label DKNY and most recently collaborated with Jean Paul Gaultier for an editorial in W magazine's Korea edition.

At the Met Gala, CL wore a long denim coat by Alexander Wang over white briefs. The rapper's striking coat, which featured a high slit at the front and was held together by a knot at the top, may have been inspired by the Statue of Liberty, keeping with the "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" theme of this year's Met Gala.

Fans of the K-pop artists have praised both Met Gala looks in several posts on Twitter.

A video of Rosé and Vaccarello arriving on the red carpet shared in a tweet Vogue has had over a million views and the post has had over 93,000 likes since it was shared.

Fans also praised CL's look for its nod to the traditional Korean "hanbok" dress, whose top portion has a tie at the front, similar to the knot on CL's coat.

Posting a comparison image of CL's look and the Korean traditional dress, user @jekkibby2 tweeted: "CL in classic american denim tied with traditional korean hanbok knot and hair inspired by a headpiece worn mostly by queens— yes that's how you make a met gala debut." The post had over 39,000 likes since it was shared.
