Why We Burst Out Laughing at Janelle Monáe’s Golden Globe Awards Dress

Posted on January 09, 2017

Believe us, it’s not for the reasons you might think.

She is a ridiculously fabulous and unique Diva/Goddess/Artist and we should all take a moment to bow the fuck down at her stunning chicness.

We’ll wait.

Okay, we’re back. The reason we laughed at this getup? Oh, it’s not because there’s anything laughable about it on its own. Sure, we suppose some might find it a little over the top and even a little clowny, but we are definitely not two of them.

In the past several years, designers have attempted to force a sort of grim, over-the-top whimsy on their wares and we simply weren’t having any of it. THIS is how you do whimsy and stay chic. The polka dot theme is well-rendered, the shape is fun and sexy – she’s got AMAZING legs – and the whole look is so incredibly her.

What it is incredibly NOT is a typical look coming out with an Armani Privé label on it. We laughed because only Janelle Monáe could make Armani bow down to her exact whims and produce such a highly uncharacteristic look. And they were clearly smart to listen to her. Miss Lady knows what the hell she’s doing.
