As Jennie is reaching insane popularity in the West, it seems that her style and appearance is also growing more Western.
It has been 6 years since BLACKPINK’s debut, and each member has undergone massive changes in their style. For Jennie in particular, her style is leaning toward a more Western vibe, leading to certain mixed reactions among Korean netizens.
In fact, the change in Jennie’s fashion and makeup style has led to a hot debate on a Korean online forum, where netizens pointed out that Jennie is growing more “Western”, “American”, and somewhat “rebellious”.
Initially, when she first debuted with BLACKPINK, Jennie adopted a cutie sexy style, with a natural Korean makeup style that earned her praise from Korean netizens.
Even in her airport appearance, Jennie takes it simple with large tees, baggy pants, or casual crop top. Her fashion sense is thus always hailed in Korea.
However, as Jennie’s popularity extends outside of Korea, she also becomes a darling of the fashion world, and often travels abroad to Europe and America to attend fashion events.
As a result, the fashion, make up, and photo styles of Jennie start to change. Instead of Korea’s sweeter tones, Jennie turns to smokey and bolder makeup. Her clothes also become more and more rebellious with adventurous cutouts that highlight her physique.
While it is obvious that Jennie has undergone changes in her styles over the years, it is necessary for a big fashion star like Jennie to take risks in fashion. Despite some of her looks drawing criticisms, Jennie is still undeniable a trendsetter and fashion icon.
