EXO’s Kai turned heads when he attended Gucci’s Cruise 2019 Show as Korea’s representative!

The show took place on May 30 in Arles, France at the Promenade des Alychamps, an ancient Roman necropolis and UNESCO world heritage site (as a part of the Arles, Roman and Romanesque Monuments). Against the mystical setting, Alessandro Michele’s newest Gothic, death-inspired collection took center stage.

For his first major front row appearance, Kai arrived head-to-toe in Gucci with a headband by the brand’s creative director Alessandro Michele, a nod to the designer’s “trademark whimsy,” as the focal piece. EXO had notably donned Alessandro Michele’s designs during their performance at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics closing ceremony.

Monica Kim of Vogue describes how Kai was the star of the night “despite the fantastic setting (and a surprise set by Elton John)…at least so far as social media was concerned,” as many people tried to take a snapshot with the idol. Kai’s appearance at the Gucci show also became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter for several hours, peaking at No. 2.

On May 31, SM Entertainment shared more photos of Kai from the event, including one with Alessandro Michele himself. In posts by other media outlets and other fashion moguls, Kai can be seen interacting with the likes of Elton John, A$AP Rocky, Sakaguchi Kentaro, and more. Many other notable guests were in attendance, including Saoirse Ronan, Salma Hayek Pinault, and Alessandro Borghi.
