As soon as the BLACKPINK member arrived at the Met Gala, fans began cheering for her at the event, commenting that she looked stunning in her a Chanel white mini-dress that was decorated with a white rose, while the look was further enhanced with black stockings and high heels.

Fans applauded the idol for her choice of attire at the charity event and for its vintage vibe inspired by 90s fashion.

Take a look at how fans are reacting to BLACKPINK's Jennie's appearance at the Met Gala 2023:

The 2023 Met Gala's theme was Karl Lagerfeld, a German fashion photographer, creative, director and artist, who contributed to major luxury houses including Balmain, Chloe, and Patou before joining Chanel in 1983. The BLACKPINK member took to her Instagram to dedicate her look at the Met Gala to the late Karl Lagerfeld and captioned the post:

"My first ever Met honoring Karl Lagerfeld with chanelofficial. Merci mon chanel family for this dream look"

The idol donned a mini-white dress from Chanel that was decorated with little white flowers. She chose the dress as a recreation from the autumn/winter 1990 collection to match the theme of the world's largest charity event and pay her respects to the late German photographer.

Jennie was also seen interacting with other Korean celebrities who attended the event, including Hallyu Queen Song Hye-kyo and Sora Choi. The trio also posed for a photo, sending the internet into a collective frenzy.
