    • In a previous interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Lisa stated, “I admire and respect all the global brands with a long history. Amongst all, witnessing how Hedi took over Celine and brought bold changes was the most impressive thing for me. The overall style of Celine has become younger, fresh and easy even for those who are new in fashion.” 

    Lisa’s recovery: Lisa was recently released from quarantine on Dec. 4, following her recovery from COVID-19, according to YG Entertainment’s official statement via Allkpop

    • “We would like to inform you that BLACKPINK member Lisa has fully recovered from COVID-19,” the statement read. “Lisa, who received treatments from home, was released from self-quarantine at 12PM KST today (December 4), following the decision of health authorities that she was no longer a concern for spreading COVID-19.”
    • YG also reassured the public about the wellbeing of Blackpink’s other members: “BLACKPINK’s Jisoo, Rosé, and Jennie were classified as actively monitored individuals who did not need to self-quarantine because more than one week had passed since their vaccinations. Nevertheless, the three members minimized their nonwork-related activities.”
    • Lisa marked her return on Instagram by sharing photos of herself sporting an all-black outfit and a red scarf during her visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
