Forget about taking the world by storm through music, K-pop stars are topping fashion charts too and we just can’t seem to get enough of them. From Louis Vuitton naming the world-famous boy-band, BTS as its global brand ambassador to the fan-favourite girl-group, Blackpink partnering up with iconic brands like Celine and Dior, there’s plenty of proof that Korean artists are on their way to global domination and fashion is definitely no exception. Having said that, here’s a list of all our beloved K-pop stars who have fronted international luxury brands off-late.

Merging luxury fashion with contemporary culture, the group debuted unique designs like never-seen-before on the Seoul runway, making this one of the most iconic global collaborations of the year.
2. BLACKPINK’S Rose For Yves Saint Laurent & Tiffany & Co.

Now, she adds another glamorous laurel to her name by becoming a global ambassador for Tiffany & Co.
3. BLACKPINK’S Lisa For Celine & Bvlgari
Well, Rosé is not the only Blackpink member to score a major brand endorsement this year. Lisa is another major fashion power player in the business who has influenced trends since the very beginning.
