Blackpink Jennie makes her runway debut at Jacquemus show

Blackpink’s Jennie Kim has officially made her runway debut, stunning audiences at Jacquemus’ show in Capri, Italy. The K-pop star, known for her multifaceted talents, closed out the brand’s “La Casa” 15th anniversary show in a striking open-back black midi dress, paired with zebra-print heels and a blue clutch.

Jennie’s appearance on the runway was a surprise, although hints were dropped on Instagram hours before the event. The brand posted a series of images featuring Jennie in a strapless red dress and black shades, teasing her involvement.

Jennie’s friendship with designer Simon Porte Jacquemus is well-known. She has attended several of his shows over the years, including the brand’s holiday campaign last December. Her runway debut adds another feather to her cap, following her recent appearance at the Met Gala in a custom blue Alaïa minidress.

In addition to her fashion endeavors, Jennie is an ambassador for Calvin Klein and Chanel. She also ventured into acting last year with her debut in “The Idol,” starring alongside Lily-Rose Depp and Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye. Reflecting on her acting debut, Jennie expressed her gratitude, saying, “It’s overwhelming, but I’m grateful and thankful.”

The Jacquemus show took place at the iconic Casa Malaparte, a house perched on a cliff overlooking the Gulf of Salerno. The location, accessible only by foot or boat, added an element of exclusivity to the event. The models walked up and down a staircase that is part of the house’s roof, showcasing Jacquemus’ designs described as “architectural shapes emerging with absolute lightness and sensuality.”

Jennie’s runway debut was not confirmed prior to the event, but speculation grew after candid photos of her in Capri began circulating online. The rumors intensified when she was spotted with Jacquemus himself, seemingly rehearsing for the show. The brand later released promotional images featuring Jennie at Casa Malaparte, further fueling the anticipation.

When the show began, fans noticed Jennie was not in the front row, leading to speculation about her role. She eventually closed the show, walking confidently in front of celebrities like Dua Lipa, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Aron Piper, and Manu Rios. After her walk, Jennie shared a heartfelt moment with Jacquemus, hugging him as he took his final bow.

Jennie’s runway debut at Jacquemus’ “La Casa” show marks a significant milestone in her career. Her natural presence on the runway and her ability to captivate the audience suggest that this may be the first of many modeling gigs for the K-pop star. Fans are eagerly awaiting future collaborations between Jennie and Jacquemus.

The event was attended by a host of celebrities, including Dua Lipa, Aron Piper, Tina Kunakey, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Manu Rios, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Ghali, Elodie, and Tony Effe. The picturesque setting and the star-studded guest list made the show a memorable celebration of Jacquemus’ 15th anniversary.

As Jennie continues to expand her horizons in the fashion world, her runway debut at Jacquemus’ show is a testament to her versatility and star power. Fans can look forward to seeing more of Jennie’s fashion moments and potential future collaborations with top designers.
