Introducing Saint Laurent’s latest muse Rosé Park

Rosé Park for Saint Laurent

To call Rosé a K-pop sensation feels insufficient, certainly an understatement.

The 23-year old member of the group, Blackpink, is a fashion icon and groundbreaker - she's got 23 million Instagram followers to prove it.

Blackpink is K-pop at it's best. The South Korean band became an international sensation, seemingly overnight. Now they're one of the most-celebrated names in entertainment, breaking records and topping charts all over the world. In fact, Blackpink made history as the first K-pop girl group to ever perform at Coachella in 2019 (to rave reviews).

But it's more than her international stardom and Blackpink that makes Rosé - or Roseanne Park, as is her full name - so intriguing.

The 23-year old was born in New Zealand but moved to Melbourne when she was just seven. Her formative years were spent in the Australian city until her dad suggested she audition for YG Entertainment. At just 15, she was whisked away and transported into the whirlwind that is Blackpink.

Now with a chart-topping record and 34 million YouTube subscribers under her belt, Rosé is a name to remember. But it's her latest project with Saint Laurent that will keep her name echoing in your head.

Rosé is the picture-perfect Saint Laurent girl. Edgy and ethereal at the same time, she is both the girl next door and the girl at the rock show.

She has the kind of effortless cool-girl vibe that you either have, or you don't. Every shot you see of her paints the picture of enviable style and renegade beauty. She's the girl you wish you were friends with. The one whose outfits you copy. Whose pictures end up on your Pinterest board.

Shot amidst the seductive Parisian skyline, the images tell a beguiling story of a fashion rebel.

Atop a wrought-iron balcony with waist-length hair swaying in the wind, Rosé wears a denim jacket and tailored mini shorts from the most recent Summer '20 collection. Looking like an archetype of rock 'n roll chic, she's a punk-rock siren.

Then, perched delicately and bambi-eyed on a window's ledge, she clutches platform high-heels dressed in a black dress you wished you owned.
