BLACKPINK and Pharrell Williams recently posed together for a group photo in Paris that was allegedly taken by the president of France.
Tiffany and Co. Executive Vice President of Product and Communications Alexandre Arnault share the photo of the K-pop girl group and Williams on Instagram Stories earlier this week, which then quickly spread across social media.
Macron, Williams and BLACKPINK were all guests for the charity event Pièces Jaunes, which was organized by First Lady Brigitte Macron.
Pièces Jaunes raises funds for hospitalized youth and children across France. President Macron and Williams also met earlier in the week prior to the charity event to discuss human rights and internet safety.
The first lady may be a K-pop fan, as she attended BLACKPINK’s “Born Pink” world tour stop in Paris last month.
As for the K-pop quartet, they are still on their world tour, with the idols set to perform in Abu Dhabi next. They will then take a month-long break before continuing across Asia, Australia and New Zealand. In April, they will make history as Coachella’sfirst K-pop headliner.
