Celebrities’ OOTDs at the Bruno Mars Concert
Last June 17-18, Bruno Mars held his concert in South Korea at Jamsil Olympic Main Stadium. It was attended by more than 50 K-pop idols and other personalities. Fans couldn’t help but notice their totally chill outfits that night. Here are some of our top picks!
Girls Generation's Sooyoung literally wore Versace on the floor with her turquoise polka dot-print silk button-up shirt and shorts. You can get it here for S$1,350 and S$950, respectively.
Steal this look: For a budget-friendly option, we found this scarf-printed button shirt and shorts on Shein for less than $13.
Former 2NE1 member Sandara Park was seen together with former Got7 member BamBam during Bruno Mars’ concert. Dara arrived wearing an all-black ensemble – cap, pullover, leather skirt – which she teamed with a pair of high-top Chucks in pink.
Her designer leather loop baguette bag from Courrèges with a cross-shaped hand strap and metallic logo is our personal favourite. You can get it here for S$781.
Steal this look: Mytheresa is selling a similar bag at a lower price of S$705 inclusive of VAT and excluding shipping costs. Shop here.
Jennie Kim and Hyunji Shin
Blackpink Jennie and fashion model Hyunji Shin went together to the concert. A TikTok user (@Prilz25) uploaded a video showing the two celebs arriving with full smiles.
In the clip, Jennie can be seen wearing a basic black cropped blouse with white lace at the hem. Hyunji Shin, on the other hand, looked effortlessly stylish in her denim-on-denim ensemble.
Steal Jennie's look: Clothing brand Rouje sells this short-sleeved ribbed tee with lace details that matches Jennie’s top from the concert.
Former Sistar member Hyolyn was also present at the concert, looking hip in a knit tube top with buttons that showed off her large cross tattoo on her belly, combined with striped baggy boyfriend jeans.
Loewe’s New Global Ambassador NCT Taeyong
On June 20, Spanish luxury fashion house Loewe named NCT Taeyong as its new global ambassador. Taeyong is known for his minimalistic approach to fashion, which makes him an ideal influencer for the brand.
The NCT leader and rapper was also present at Loewe’s Spring Summer 2024 Men’s Runway Show that took place last June 27.
During the event, he was dressed in a black knitted sleeveless vest paired with chocolate brown corduroy pants. Not to mention, his lavender-hued hair complemented his overall looks. He incorporated his outfit with a dazzling linked chain necklace and bracelets on both wrists.
(G)I-DLE Airport Outfits
One of the leading girl groups in the fourth generation of K-Pop idols is (G)I-dle. As they embarked on their "I am FREE-TY" world tour on June 30, the quintet wowed fans with their “well-coordinated” airport outfits.
Miyeon looked pretty in her blue lace-up sleeveless top and long skirt with a slit, while Minnie was sassy in her ribbed sleeveless white top and cargo pants.
Meanwhile, Soyeon also donned a ribbed tank top combined with ombre green spray denim pants. The sleeveless embroidered-motif slip dress that Shuhua wore perfectly complemented her burnt orange beaded strappy shoes.
Yuqi set the Incheon Airport on fire with her blue one-piece swimsuit top, tattered denim shorts, and a pair of white Nappa leather sandals.
