Janelle Monae recently did an interview stating that taking her clothes off is not what makes her sexy, and we agree! But we must admit that we love seeing the gorgeous songstress show a little skin and wear something that accentuates her figure! Monae rocked a sleek swoop curl pompadour and a white low cut tuxedo with black lapels to celebrate her May Essence Magazine cover. Gorgeous!!




What do you think of the look?

Janelle is a breath of fresh air! So much sophistication and real style – true sexiness! I hope that other young ladies are taking notes.

Thank you my Sista!


I love Janelle’s style. I would never dress like she does but she owns her style. Her style is so unique. She is quirky yet elegant. She manages to be sexy without showing much skin. She wears suits but always looks so feminine. Her style is full of contrasts and I love it.
Her make up is flawless and she is so gorgeous.


Janelle’s mane is one of the reasons that I decided to go natural 5 years ago…”nuff said!!!”


Cette femme a la CLASSE! J’aime ce qu’elle dégage.


Wow the whole outfit and hair are on point. I wonder what is the name of the lipstick that she is wearing I love that color? The only down remark that I would make is on model Iman eye makeup it’s very racoonish looking. But the outfits on both ladies look very pretty, and I need to get some of their skin regime because their skin is flawless.


Janelle is a timeless, breathtaking beauty. She is absolutely stunning, not trashy and filthy like Nikki Minag. I hope to God she will continue to rise. Natural, fierce and powerful!


I think she’s the most naturally beautiful black celebrity today. She never gets her due because she’s not rocking a blonde wig or wearing next to nothing, so it’s unfortunate. But she’s stunning. And her hair is gorgeous.


She looks amazing! This woman is constantly giving me life! The suit, the hair, the class and poise- Janelle rocks it EVERY time. She stays out of the tabloids, looks fabulous and is a wonderful example to girls. She is fresh and unique and we definitely need more women out there like Janelle who are constant and are good role models for our girls.


It’s refreshing to see a celebrity who doesn’t feel the need to show a lot of skin. She is gorgeous and unique.


Wow on the entire ensemble, I like!


Although i think janelle has impeccable style and gorgeous makeup, there’s little to no variation when it comes to her hair. Would love to see something different than her regular.


This young woman always manages to ooze sex appeal without trying too hard or doing too much. The hair and suit is to die for. She’s performing at my school, and I couldn’t be any more thrilled. Beautiful.


I love it. She looks amazing and the cut of the blazer is perfect. I want it !

I want everything!! So gorgeous!


I always like her style. She definitely is a poster girl to show women and young girls that you don’t have to strip off to get recognition and admiration (in the music business and in life in general – your talent ‘should’ be getting you far). Plus she’s a beauty who always dresses sophisticatedly – there is no denying she has her own style and doesn’t follow the trends. What is there not to love? 🙂


This is one of the few instances where I am 100 percent in love with her look!!! Maybe it’s because she’s wearing white instead of the usual black… I adore the jacket,her makeup is immaculate and the hair is cute.


I saw these photos on Essence website…
She looks simply AMAZING!!


Oh my gosh. So flawless.
