Best of K-pop fashion: BTS served seven stellar Louis Vuitton looks at the Grammys while Blackpink’s Rosé flaunted a Saint Laurent mini dress for On the Ground shows
Korean idols and actors often turn to fashion maisons to express themselves – whether to show off their personal style or embody the characters they play.

Grammy nominees BTS serve winning looks in Louis Vuitton
Reflecting their individual aesthetics, the Bangtan Boys showcased seven different takes on artistic director Virgil Abloh’s sportswear-meets-chic garb in modest tones of camel, black and white. Definitely winning looks, seven times over.
A preview of BTS’s guest appearance on the show You Quiz on the Block also reveals the members clad in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton. This time the boys went for a black, white and denim blue palette. Their casual looks were coordinated as always, with each outfit suited to their personal style.
Rosé flaunts one killer outfit after another in On the Ground
Blackpink’s Rosé finally staged her first solo release “R” featuring the song On the Ground. From her MV to her stage performances, Rosé kept her looks fierce and fresh, donning bodysuits and baby doll dresses in cuts that showed off her slim figure, accentuating the looks with chunky boots.
A few favourites include her hot pink tube dress by Australian label Alex Perry, which she wore with a black Saint Laurent leather jacket, and a pair of Dolls Kill boots. She wore the full-length skirt on the MV, but transformed the dress into a mini version for her performance on SBS’s Inkigayo.
On M Countdown, meanwhile, Rosé rocked the grunge trend with an plaid dress by Rokh, a London-based fashion house led by Seoul-born designer Rok Hwang. Her accessories were a Tiffany & Co. wrap necklace and a pair of Dr Martens.
