BLACKPINK slay in royal fashion at state dinner in Buckingham Palace
K-pop girl group BLACKPINK looked regal as they dined with the royals during a state banquet at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening.
BLACKPINK members Lisa, Jennie, Rosé and Jisoo made a stunning entrance to the diplomatic dinner in their glam dresses.
Lisa dazzled in her aquamarine dress with a cape, rocking the ultimate royal look, while Jennie slayed in a pristine white long-sleeved dress, plunging her splendid neckline.
Rosé made sure that a classic strapless black gown would never go out of style, giving emphasis to her flawless collarbone, and Jisoo showed off in a conventional puff-sleeved black dress, looking so beautifully modest.
King Charles III and Queen Camilla hosted the formal dinner for South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, accompanied by First Lady Kim Keon Hee, during his state visit to the United Kingdom.
BLACKPINK’s pop culture impact
The King praised the K-Pop stars in his speech, recognizing the participation of the global superstars in an important environmental cause.
“I applaud Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé, better known collectively as BLACKPINK, for their role in bringing the message of environmental sustainability to a global audience as ambassadors for the UK’s Presidency of COP 26, and later as advocates for the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” said the King.
“I can only admire how they can prioritize these vital issues, as well as being global superstars,” he added.
Since the group’s creation in 2016, BLACKPINK has proved that they are a universal influence, not just in the pop culture scene but also in worldwide issues of concern.
BLACKPINK has broken several significant records as they are the first Korean band to headline a major UK music festival and the first Asian and first all-female group to headline Coachella in the US.
