Blackpink’s Jennie Kim has officially added runway model to her impressive list of accomplishments.

The K-pop sensation debuted her catwalk at Jacquemus’s La Casa cruise show.

JENNIE’S RUNWAY DEBUT

This event marked a significant milestone for the brand, celebrating its 15th anniversary.

The show occurred on the stunning roof patio of Casa Malaparte, according to Teen Vogue.

This architectural gem perches on a cliff with a breathtaking sea view on the Italian island of Capri.

The star-studded audience included notable figures such as Dua Lipa, Peggy Gou, Arón Piper, and Manu Ríos.

JENNIE KEEPS IT UNDER WRAPS

Jennie’s involvement in the show was a well-kept secret until the last moment, according to Harpers Bazaar.

The singer/rapper not only walked the runway but had the honour of closing the show.

She wore the final look from the collection: a backless, sleeveless midi dress in black crepe.

She completed her ensemble with swirly black and white mules and Jacquemus’s new Le Rond Carré bag in light turquoise.

Jennie’s low chignon, adorned with a silver hair clip, added a touch of elegance to her look.

JENNIE AND SIMON JACQUEMUS

Jennie then greeted designer Simon Porte Jacquemus with a warm hug on the stairs leading up to the main runway.

Photographers captured this touching moment as Simon prepared to take his final bow in front of the guests.

Speculation about Jennie’s role in the show began when candid photos of her surfaced online, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Initial theories suggested she might have travelled to the island as a guest, given her history of attending Jacquemus shows.

STEALING THE SHOW

However, rumours intensified on the evening of 9 June when people saw Jennie with Jacquemus, seemingly rehearsing for the show.

The whispers were all but confirmed when Jacquemus released promotional images featuring Jennie posing at Casa Malaparte.

In these images, she donned black sunglasses and a red towel as a dress, with the same hairstyle she sported during the show.

“This is a dream come true,” Jennie said after the show.

“Walking for Jacquemus and closing the show is an experience I’ll never forget.”

A RISING STAR IN MODELLING

This wasn’t Jennie’s first foray into modelling.

She has previously starred in major campaigns for brands like Adidas, Gentle Monster, Calvin Klein, Chanel, and even Jacquemus.

However, this marks her first major runway show, solidifying her status in the fashion world.

Fans and fashion enthusiasts alike were thrilled by Jennie’s runway debut.

Social media buzzed with admiration and excitement, with many praising her poise and grace on the catwalk.

BLACKPINK’ IN YOUR AREA

“Jennie looked stunning! She was born to be on the runway,” one fan tweeted.

With this runway debut, Jennie follows in the footsteps of her fellow BLACKPINK member, Lisa, who walked for Celine in 2021.

The Blackpink members are not just dominating the music charts but also making significant waves in the fashion industry.

Jacquemus’s La Casa cruise show was a spectacular celebration of fashion.

AN EVENT TO REMEMBER

It was set against the backdrop of one of the world’s most beautiful locations.

Jennie’s involvement added a layer of excitement and glamour, making it an event to remember.

As Jennie continues to expand her horizons, fans can’t wait to see what she’ll conquer next.

One thing is certain: whether on stage or the runway, Jennie knows how to steal the show.
