Fashion Fell for Blackpink in 2021

Save for their dedicated fan army, the Blinks, no one loved Blackpink more in 2021 than the fashion industry. Lisa, Rosé, Jisoo, and Jennie have long been designer favorites, but they were front and center this year like never before. Each member contributed something different to the conversation. Whether it was Rosé becoming the first K-Pop star to dazzle at the Met Gala or Lisa launching her solo career with a vintage-filled video that broke the internet, they helped to enliven the year in style.

Thanks to their respective contracts, the girls have a special place during fashion week. During the cruise 2022 collections in June, Jisoo gave fans a thrill at Dior’s destination show at Greece’s Panathenaic Stadium by offering a preview of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s collection moments before it hit the runway. Her refined white linen dress, paired with the brand’s hybrid sneaker-ankle boots, captured the mood of Chiuri’s show and its sporty Greco-Roman influences.  


At Chanel’s spring 2022 ready-to-wear collection, Jennie returned to the front row in a look that highlighted everything young and playful about the 111-year-old house. Sure, she could have worn a little black jacket, but Jennie’s red tweed mini-skirt and matching cropped vest were non-stop. Styled to the hilt with multiple double-C necklaces and layered pearl belts, it was Chanel through the lens of Gen-Z and allowed her to stand out in a crowd filled with beautiful brand ambassadors.

Rosé kept things interesting with multiple standout moments, including the launch of her debut single ‘On the Ground’ and its fashion-filled music video, which featured looks from Alex Perry, Re/Done, and of course Saint Laurent. A muse for designer Anthony Vaccarello, she joined him at the Met Gala is one of the night’s most appealing looks: a slinky LBD amplified by the addition of an oversized white bow and dazzling clover motif choker with hundreds of crystals set against enamel. Of course, jewelry has become a focus for Rosé, who inked a lucrative ambassador contact with Tiffany and Co. this year too.

No BlackPink discussion would be complete without the group’s rapper, Lisa, who cemented her status as queen of the daily outfit post. Even with the launch of her solo EP Lalisa to contend with, she still found time to maintain one of the most compelling Instagram feeds around. Filled with plenty of glimpses at Hedi Slimane’s latest Celine offerings, behind-the-scenes sneak peeks at the life of a pop superstar, and a look at her ever-changing hair color, she was 2021’s essential fashion follow.
