The two joined other stars on the red carpet event including Olivia Rodrigo, Katy Perry, Miranda Kerr, Awkwafina, Jacob Elordi, Megan Thee Stallion, Billie Eilish, Bradley Cooper, Hillary Clinton, Hugh Jackman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Yeoh, Joe Jonas, Ashley Park and Shawn Mendes.

Jung Ho-yeon is a global ambassador of Louis Vuitton and was one of the fashion brand’s stars who attended the Met Gala. Other stars who sported Louis Vuitton were Emma Stone, Renate Reinsve and Joe Jonas.

According to Louis Vuitton, the stars wore “archival or previously worn look with a twist for the occasion.”

“There is no better feeling than to know your designs will live on,” said Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of the brand’s Women’s Collections.

The Met Gala was held in celebration of the Met Costume Institute exhibition “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” which explores fashion in the US.

“Presented in collaboration with The Met’s American Wing, this section of the exhibition will highlight sartorial narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of the American Wing period rooms,” according to the Met website.

“Men’s and women’s dress dating from the eighteenth century to the present will be featured in vignettes installed in select period rooms spanning ca. 1805 to 1915: a Shaker Retiring Room from the 1830s; a nineteenth-century parlor from Richmond, Virginia; a panoramic 1819 mural of Versailles; and a twentieth-century living room designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, among others,” it added.
