BLACKPINK are known for their edgy and trendsetting concepts and outfits. While they are the darlings of many fashion brands, they have not been spared from questionable outfits that lead to mixed reactions from fans and netizens (even if unwarranted).
Here are 10+ outfits BLACKPINK received mixed reactions to:
1. Concert Outfits In Malaysia
When BLACKPINK held their concert in Malaysia fans were excited for the group to visit the country. However, some of the group’s outfits while on stage garnered mixed reactions from fans and Malaysian actress Abby Abadi, who felt the group’s skirts were too short.
2. Nurse Jennie
While fans loved how she looked, Korean netizens had mixed opinions on Jennie‘s nurse outfit in the group’s music video for “Lovesick Girls.” YG Entertainment faced backlash from the Health and Medical Workers Union of Korea, who felt that the costume Jennie wore only “followed the typical description used for sexual appeal.” Ultimately, the company announced that they would be deleting all the scenes in the MV that featured Jennie in the outfit.
3. Jisoo at WIB: Indonesia K-Pop Awards
Fans have often said Jisoo gets the strangest outfits and claim that what she wore during the group’s performance at WIB: Indonesia K-Pop Awards was one of the worst. The main complaint was that it was bad fitting with weird accessories, with fans saying that Jisoo’s visuals are what saved the look.
4. Lisa Lettuce Look
Fans say this outfit was unsightly and made Lisa look like a fresh head of lettuce, while others appreciated the high fashion possibilities.
5. Jisoo Paris Fashion Week
All eyes were on Jisoo during her appearance at the Dior Show during Paris Fashion Week. Many fans loved and hated her yellow pleated outfit, saying it was too simple and aged her.
6. Jennie’s Ant Look
While this dress’ shape is standard and would be considered cute on normal occasions, the ants printed on the pink fabric with green lace accents made Jennie look like an “ant-covered watermelon” according to fans.
