One of the buzziest first-time Met Gala attendees is undeniably Jennie Kim of Blackpink. As one of Karl Lagerfeld’s last handpicked muses for the house of Chanel, the musician is a welcome presence on the red carpet, which honors the late designer. Fellow Blackpink member Rosé gave Kim some advice for the night, “Rosie was here last year and said, “Go and have fun!” Kim told Emma Chamberlain on the livestream.   

Kim has always wondered how people sit down in their extravagant gowns once they’re actually inside the exhibit. Luckily for her, tonight, the Chanel team made a reinterpretation of look 164 from Lagerfeld’s fall 1990 ready-to-wear collection, which just so happens to be a mini dress—Kim’s length of choice. The satin bustier dress is embellished with a simple white camellia with a ribbon tie at the bodice, while a matching flower is pinned to her hair.
