Blackpinkâ€™s RosÃ© arrived at the Met Gala for the first time.
The music sensation, with the fashion houseâ€™s creative director Anthony Vaccarello by her side, stepped onto the carpet of the 2021 Met Gala in Saint Laurent. This marks the singerâ€™s debut at the coveted fundraising benefit held at the Museum of Metropolitan Art in New York City. RosÃ© also makes history as one of the first female K-pop stars to attend the Met Gala, along with Korean rapper CL, born Lee Chae-rin.
Her dress was a simple little black dress finished with a giant white bow across the chest from the brandâ€™s winter 2021 collection. To finish off her look, she donned patent black platform heels and an embellished black choker and statement earrings, while her platinum blonde hair was in a teased high ponytail.
RosÃ©, born Chae-Young Park, is most famous for being one of the four members of popular South Korean girl group, Blackpink, which also includes Ji-soo Kim, Lalisa Manobal and Jennie Kim, known simply as Ji-soo, Lisa and Jennie to their legion of Blackpink fans known as â€œBlinks.â€

Since she first stepped onto the scene with Blackpink in 2016, RosÃ© has taken off in the world of fashion. In 2020, after working closely with Saint Laurent for a number of years, she was tapped as the brandâ€™s global ambassador â€” the first in 59 years. In January, she also became the muse for Yves Saint Laurent BeautÃ©.
In April, she was revealed as Tiffany & Coâ€™s newest global ambassador, debuting at the 2021 Tiffany HardWear digital campaign.
â€œIâ€™ve always loved wearing Tiffany jewelry. To be part of an iconic brand that has been part of my life for a long time makes it that much more special to me. I am very honored and excited to be a part of the HardWear campaign and I canâ€™t wait for everyone to see it,â€ the singer said at the time.
RosÃ©â€™s first solo album, called â€œR,â€ was released in March and was met with immediate success, reaching 41.6 million views in 24 hours with her lead single â€œOn the Ground.â€
While Blackpink has roots in South Korea, the groupâ€™s global fame has accelerated over the last few years, becoming an international pop sensation. RosÃ© was born in New Zealand and raised in Australia â€” only relocating to Seoul at the age of 15 to train in YG Entertainmentâ€™s recruitment program.
Since its debut in 2016, the girl group has broken numerous records, including most viewed music video in 24 hours on YouTube. Blackpinkâ€™s hit song, â€œHow You Like That,â€ set two Guinness World Records at the time.
