If there was any doubt left that Janelle Mon­ae is a reign­ing style queen, this should kill it. 

Vogue declared Mon­ae the Oscars red car­pet win­ner, stat­ing that her black, white and sil­ver Elie Saab cou­ture gown pro­vid­ed the awards’ “most dra­mat­ic red-car­pet moment.”

Mon­ae has made a series of bold, dar­ing and down­right stun­ning sar­to­r­i­al choic­es on her press and awards show tours for Moon­light and Hid­den Fig­ures. But last night’s Oscars pro­vid­ed some of the strongest evi­dence yet that she is a cre­ative style force.

It was a fairy­tale night for the star whose film Moon­light won Best Pic­ture.

And she didn’t stop there. Mon­ae also had a show-stop­ping look at the Van­i­ty Fair Oscars after par­ty.

Just stun­ning. Flaw­less and stun­ning.

Ladies, what do you think of Janelle’s Oscar looks?

Always <3 Miss Mon­ae, she nev­er fails to impress. Both dress­es were stun­ning (liked the VF dress a lil more — toni’ we gon par-tay! :D) and then her beau­ti­ful ‘do, and with that neck­lace & crown! A true Queen in the mak­ing, and the epit­o­me of BGR / BGM. So glad & hap­py for her!


she always looks stun­ning and flaw­less in every­thing she wears. she is absolute­ly beau­ti­ful, gor­geous.


Gor­geous!!! I’m lov­ing the short hair­do, too. I almost didn’t rec­og­nize her.


Her dress­es looked beau­ti­ful & she looked stun­ning. She hon­est­ly inspires me on so many lev­els. My chem­istry teacher told me that I looked like the girl on the super bowl pep­si com­mer­cials that was danc­ing., I was like do you mean Janelle Mon­ae, and then he said yeah I don’t know if you look like her or she looks like you, but the both of you look alike. I was so flat­tered. Then my fam­i­ly mem­bers start­ed telling me that I look like her :D. She is just beau­ti­ful so I took it as a com­pli­ment.
