With Rosé gracing the YSL fashion show with her presence, Jisoo drawing the biggest crowd at Dior and Jennie set to become one of the most anticipated guests at Chanel's show, Blinks and Lilies were excited about Lisa’s appearance at the Paris Fashion Week. She is the global ambassador for French fashion house Celine and luxury jewelry brand Bvlgari. While Celine doesn’t have a fashion show at the PFW this year, Lisa was meant to attend other events. But looks like her label YG has other plans.

Lisa arrived in France on October 4 and fans wondered what the Blackpink star would be doing. Many assumed she would travel to the south of France for a private Celine show. Since Bvlgari is a jewelry brand, they do not have individual shows at fashion week. So, fans believed she had been invited to attend shows by other brands like Chanel, Miu Miu, Lacoste or Louis Vuitton. They also decided to ask the organizers on social media for more hints about Lisa’s activities. However, Bulgari’s CEO’s words have caused an uproar among Lilies (Lisa’s fandom).

Lisa hasn't appeared at any event

On October 5, fans asked Jean-Christophe Babin, the CEO of Bvlgari about Lisa’s activities. And his response has shocked many. The brand had teamed up with Etam for a fashion show and it seems that Lisa had been invited. But he explained, “Due to COVID, her agency doesnt want her to participate. Pity as we have an incredible Bvlgari event tomorrow in Milano and she won’t attend.” Fans were already angry at Blackpink's label YG Entertainment for not promoting her solo debut well.


Babin then made a post elaborating on the matter, “Our great ambassador @lalalalisa_m is in Europe. Unfortunately due to Covid her Agency prefers her not participating to events or shows. That’s also the reason why insofar we could not shoot her together with @zendaya , @lilyaldridge and @vittoria for the @bulgari Brand Campaign 2021/22 and that we could not run a major event yet together.”

Fans are puzzled since Lisa is already vaccinated and now in Paris. They showed their frustration on Twitter as they asked if she wasn’t allowed to attend any events, why was she in Paris in the first place? Some Lilies pointed out that the other Blackpink members like Rosé and Jisoo also attended crowded fashion shows but YG Entertainment never stopped them from attending by citing Covid concerns.

'Justice for Lisa'

Lilies trended #YGLetLisaDoHerWork as they asked, “Lisa got vaccinated so what's your point for not letting her to attend Bulgari's event tomorrow?” Another tweeted, “As her agency, it is your responsibility to help your artists grow, not block them from opportunities that could have made their careers bloom more. Stop these unfair restrictions that only apply to Lisa.” “Lisa got one of the shortest solo debut promotions in the industry despite endless records breaking. Now, you are barring from attending events and activities with endorsed brand. Shame on you,” said another. One fan pointed out, “Let us know if it's Lisa's decision and we will accept it. But you went for "COVID" as an excuse implying that it wasn't her decision. Why are the activities of other artists in YG Entertainment not restricted?”
