On the identical night that Blackpink’s Jennie celebrated the discharge of The Idol on the Cannes Film Festival, her bandmate Lisa was just miles away, fêting Celine and its artistic director Hedi Slimane at the style house’s intimate dinner on the famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. The Celine ambassador brought ample sparkle to the evening, wearing a sequined pinstripe suit from the brand with a sheer black top under it. Her hair was styled down in waves, along with her iconic bangs parted to the side.
Lisa shared a photograph from the event on Instagram, writing, “Thanks @hedislimane @celine for an exquisite dinner 🖤”
The night brought together Celine’s global faces and VIP friends, including Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn (in his first event post-split) and Kaia Gerber.
Lisa specifically was photographed with BTS’ V, Chinese actress Jingyi Zhang, and Korean actor Park Bo-gum, an all-star group. V first generated hype around his event appearance when he teased his arrival in Cannes on his Instagram Story. He posted a photograph of the welcome note Celine left him. To the dinner, he wore an all-black suit, featuring a cropped blazer with an announcement bow tie.

Lisa’s time spent with V is particularly noteworthy, as V was filmed holding hands along with her bandmate Jennie in Paris last week, sparking dating rumors. The K-pop stars’ respective agencies dodged addressing Jennie and V’s exact relationship shortly after. They told Sports Seoul (via Soompi), “It’s difficult to envision [regarding this matter on the artists’ private lives].”
Celine’s star-studded dinner was overall a celebration of the brand, Cannes fashion, and music, with a live performance by Jacob Slater of Wunderhorse serving as post-meal entertainment.
