In another life I was a bad ass ninja with stealth moves and fly dresses…in my arsenal was a piercing stare and I wore long red braided hair…

Oscars 2017 Best Dressed goes to…

Janelle Monae Oscars 

Janelle Monae

We all love Janelle Monae for a number of reasons. She can sing, she can act, she can dance she’s beautiful and she can dress! Her black and white wardrobe which pays homage to her parents always turns heads. We saw her light up the screen as Mary Jackson in the period drama Hidden Figures and Teresa in the meditative Moonlight. This year Moonlight won Best Picture and we at IAB give best dressed to Janelle Monae in this stunning Elie Saab sheer bodice gown with black and white tassels, gold adornments and more. Her hair was worn in a pixie cut with crown and a bejeweled choker. She looks like a doll, a dream and a stunning Goddess Queen. No one else can do it like this Queen.

We leave you with one of our favorite Janelle Monae quotes:

“I feel myself becoming the fearless person I have dreamt of being. Have I arrived? No. But I’m constantly evolving and challenging myself to be unafraid to mistakes.”-Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae as fearless as she is can make no mistakes.

Rock on Queen.
