Jennie can officially mark the Met Gala off her bucket list. The BLACKPINK singer made her Met Gala debut Monday (May 1) in a vintage Chanel dress in honor of Karl Lagerfeld.
The white strapless dress from Chanel’s fall/winter 1990 collection was accessorized with black gloves, tights, a choker, a black belt with a white flower on the front, and $20,000 Chanel Ruban earrings.
With prom season right around the corner, graduations, weddings and other occasions happening this year, now’s the the time to get your formal wear in order.
For the fashionable BLINKs who want to channel Jennie’s effortlessly chic style, here’s a list of everything you need to re-create her Met Gala look — without breaking the bank.
How to Shop the Look:
For formal and casual wear, the strapless mini-dress pictured above is available in sizes ranging from 2-16. The Showpo dress features a straight neckline and fitted bodice with gathering at the waist and a slightly flared skirt. For additional options, try Showpo’s Rikardy fit-and-flare mini dress ($69.95); the tiered strapless mini-dress ($69.95) or this embroidered strapless dress ($85) from Lulu’s.
Want to feel snatched? This satin bow belt is a good alternative to Jennie’s belt, but you can also DIY by using velvet fabric or this $7 adjustable necktie as a belt and accenting it with this white rosette flower accessory ($6.49).
From velvet to lace, latex and leather, gloves are in high demand this season. And if you watched the Met Gala carpet closely, you probably saw several celebs wearing gloves. The elbow-length, velvet gloves pictured above look similar to the ones worn by Jennie and pair perfectly with this velvet choker ($5.99).
