It was recently announced that NCT‘s Jeno would be making history by becoming the first K-Pop star to open New York Fashion Week.
In a press release, fashion brand Peter Do revealed, “It was a natural choice to have Jeno open the show. Jeno embodies the Peter Do man – multifaceted, confident, and a trailblazer,” and it’s hard to dispute their reasoning!
Even as he was leaving Korea, Jeno captured the hearts of netizens with his effortless looks and dazzling visuals.
Fast forward to September 12 (EST), and NCT’s Jeno truly cemented his legendary status at the event. Although many were predicting the look he could be serving, nobody expected it to be just as jaw-dropping sexy as it was.
Dressed in a simple yet perfectly tailored suit and platform shoes, it was enough to drive any netizen crazy… until they also realized he wasn’t actually wearing a shirt!!! Jeno looked cool, calm, and collected in the sexy look.
Yet, although he shined and captured the hearts of netizens worldwide, he also seemed to attract the attention of celebrities, which isn’t too surprising considering just how handsome he looked.
On NCT’s Instagram, the idol shared some of the huge names he met during the event. In the photo set, the first snap was with actor and 30 Seconds To Mars lead vocalist Jared Leto.
From that photo, it seemed like the event easily could’ve been a meet and greet with Jeno (which fans would pay so much money for.) He went on to meet Dove Cameron…
American singer and songwriter Sabrina Carpenter…
And English singer Ellie Goulding.
Even inside the show, Jeno was treated like the A-List celebrity he is. Not only did the idol have front-row seats to the show, but he sat next to some of the biggest global stars, including Dove Cameron, Laura Harrier, Doja Cat, and Sabrina Carpenter.
In fan-taken images of the event, Jeno looked at home on the front row, and his dazzling visuals made him stand out from the celebrity-filled crowd.
In the past, NCT has constantly showcased their influence at some of the biggest global events, whether it was Johnny at the Met Gala or Jaehyun at Milan Fashion Week. Jeno has now joined them and cemented just how iconic the group is.
