Rosé of girl group Black Pink and CL of disbanded girl group 2NE1 on Monday walked the red carpet at the Met Gala, one of the U.S. fashion industry's biggest events.
Among female K-pop stars they were the first to attend the fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York. Choi Si-won of boy band Super Junior and singer PSY put in an appearance in 2013, as did Rain and Lay of boy band Exo in 2015.
Rosé appeared in a black Saint Laurent mini dress with white bow details on the front alongside the fashion house's creative director Anthony Vaccarello. CL wore a denim hanbok-themed dress over a white brief designed by Alexander Wang.
The annual event has been held since 1948, celebrating a different theme each year, but was not held last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This year's event was hosted under the theme of "American independence" by actor Timothée Chalamet, singer Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis player Naomi Osaka, whom American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour called "Gen-Z superstars."
