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?

Some­body nec­es­sar­i­ly help to make crit­i­cal­ly arti­cles I’d state. This is the very first time I fre­quent­ed your web page and thus far? I amazed with the research you made to make this par­tic­u­lar pub­lish incred­i­ble. Excel­lent activ­i­ty!


She always looks nice and so petite!

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 !

Miss Fizzy

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.

That is a gor­geous suit! I absolute­ly love!
