In an interview with Emma Chamberlain for Vogue, Jennie explained the reason behind her choice of a mini dress, saying, "When I see people wearing dazzling and massive dresses, I wonder, 'How on earth do they sit down?' I can sit comfortably." She added, "The Chanel team completed a dress that reinterprets the 1990s Chanel runway look, and I really love it."

The Met Gala, held annually on the first Monday of May, is the largest fashion charity event. Each year, a specific costume theme is selected as the dress code, and celebrities are invited to a fundraising event for the museum's endowment. This year's theme is 'Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,' honoring the late, great fashion designer who passed away in 2019.
In 2021, BLACKPINK's Rosé became the first Korean celebrity to be invited to the event, garnering much attention. Since then, model and actress Jung Hoyeon, singer CL, and others have also attended the event.
