Idol -actress IU recently made a stunning appearance at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, but many eyes were drawn to her necklace.
On May 29th, the famous idol-actress IU posted to her personal Instagram a picture of herself in the dress she wore at the 2022 Cannes International Film Festival. Rather than being from a foreign luxury brand, this dress belongs to a collection by Korea’s prominent wedding designer Choi Jae Hoon.

In particular, her necklace is decorated with 180 diamonds and listed at 85 million won ($68,000), while the earrings are said to amount to 30 million won ($24,000).
On May 30th, the official Instagram of Gucci also uploaded a photo of IU wearing a gown from their brand. The dress was adorned by IU at the closing ceremony of the Cannes.
Netizens, who saw photos of IU, got visual-shocked and started leaving comments like: “She’s a princess” and “Her beauty leaves me speechless”.
IU has been active as Gucci’s Ambassador in Korea since 2020, and was named the brand’s global ambassador this March.
The idol-actress recently attended the 75th Cannes International Film Festival as a cast member of the “Broker”. The movie’s leading actor Song Kang Ho was named Best Actor at Cannes’ Award Ceremony, and became the first Korean actor to win such a title.
