BLACKPINK‘s Jennie had fans intrigued after being spotted at a designer brand afterparty in Paris, one that she isn’t officially affiliated with.
Since debuting, Jennie has become an ambassador for huge brands and has been spotted at events for designers like Calvin Klein and Chanel.
Yet, netizens were shocked to see photos circulate revealing that Jennie had allegedly attended a Balenciaga event in Paris.
Jennie is in Paris for Fashion Week and has seemingly been enjoying her time there, including going to see Lisa‘s Crazy Horse performance.

While many seemed confused about Jennie attending, especially as the idol represents many designer brands but not Balenciaga, the quote retweets shared why it made perfect sense. In particular, many BLINKs noted that Jennie’s friends, including Haze, Fai Khadra (who had his model debut), and Rachel Senott attended.
I knew it!! I saw Haze and Fai Khadijah were there and also Rachel Senott so ofc she was going to see her friends https://t.co/pOYjeNRm83

Fai Khadra is one of Jennie's friends. It was his first runway so she was there to support him. https://t.co/VtPBPhEYPY

As always, Jennie makes sure to find ways to support her friends. While BLINKs wouldn’t hate the idea of Jennie working with Balenciaga, it seems like the idol was just there to support her friends.
