That’s exactly what model and Squid Game star Hoyeon Jung brought to the event’s red carpet, albeit a more modernized version from Louis Vuitton’s recent spring 2022 collection. Black long dresses with sleeves “My look for last night was a nod to Old Hollywood glamour, but with a modern edge,” Jung tells Vogue. “Nicolas [Ghesquière] was inspired by the passage of time, and I just love the idea of looking back to create something new and unexpected.”
Given Squid Game is one of the most popular shows to ever come out of Netflix, it’s safe to say Jung was one of the evening’s most anticipated stars. Her unexpected fashion choice didn’t disappoint.
