South Korean K-pop group Blackpink dazzled fans with an October 2020 magazine cover shoot with Elle. Photos from the shoot were shared with Elle’s 5.1 million Instagram followers on Thursday, to the delight of many who were already fans of the pop stars.
The post featured two photos, one in black-and-white and one in color, displaying the four members, Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa, in two beautifully chic shots.
The first image had all four women seated close together and looking directly at the camera with a simple, coy expression. Jennie, at the top of the photo, had on a black, elegant blazer with a scalloped white collar, while Jisoo, to the right, sported a plaid jacket and hoop earrings. Rosé was front-and-center with a polka-dot, high-collard blouse, and Lisa, positioned to her left, sported a light-colored blouse and medium-sized hoop earrings. All the ladies had their hair pulled back into buns with some having pieces fall around their faces while others’ ends were splayed out around their buns, creating an edgy style.
In the second shot, three of the girls were standing, slightly hovered over a bar to support them as one sat in the front. Lisa wore a matching velvet suit set and high-heeled boots. Jennie, in the middle, sported a polished look with a long-sleeved white top and black-skirted bottom. A bow in her hair and white tights completed the look. Rosé mixed it up with a top knot, gray plaid blazer over lace black tights, and ribbon-tied heels. Jisoo, on the ground, was styled in a cream-colored, sophisticated suit.

On their group dynamic: “We all lived together since the beginning,” Jennie (@jennierubyjane) says. “After our training time was over, we’d go home together and order food, talk about how scary the teachers were, how the work was too much. And just like how kids at school become friends, we just got along. It was very easy—we didn’t really have to try.” For the full cover story, see link in bio. #BLACKPINKxELLE ELLE October 2020: Editor-in-Chief: @Ninagarcia Talent: @blackpinkofficial @roses_are_rosie @jennierubyjane @sooyaaa__ @lalalalisa_m Photographer: @kimheejune Fashion Direction: @charlesvarenne Stylist: @meenmeenmeen_ Writer: @mariasherm Entertainment Director: @jenweisel Hair: @iseonyeong1118 @agency_garten Makeup: @iammaeng Manicure: @nail_unistella Set Design: Seo Yun Choi @set__darak Production: Lee Kyung Kim @blcreativehouse On Set Coordinator: Hee Young Park

The upload had appreciation from those who not only noted how gorgeous and stylish the shoot was, but shouted out individual members as well, doting their favorites.
“BLACKPINK IS THE FUTURE,” one user gushed, noting the girl group’s importance in the music scene.
“Rosie,” a fan simply stated with a crown emoji, showing their love for one of the singers.

The K-pop ensemble is hot on the rise in the U.S., releasing a track with American pop star Selena Gomez in August called “Ice Cream,” which quickly became a hit. As The Inquisitr reported, the song will be featured on the group’s upcoming debut album, Blackpink: The Album.
