Janelle Monáe at “Lord & Taylor Celebrates The Dress Address ” in New York City.
Girl, we missed you more than we realized.
How is it she can do all kinds of goofy posing on the red carpet and it never comes across try-hard or distracting to us? Normally, when some gal is posing hard and blowing kisses, we’re all “Girl, no. Not in front of cameras.” But Miss Janelle’s got the charm to make it work.
She’s also got the charm to make this look work, although truth be told, this is rather low on her difficulty scale. Critiques? Yeah, we’ve got a couple. You’re not ever likely to hear us singing the praises of chokers. We don’tlove the neck situation on its own merits, but when combined with the hair jewelry, her head starts looking a mite overstyled. Second, while we love the idea of booties with this dress, that’s a fairly heavy-looking pair. Something a little more delicate would’ve been our rec.
Still, it’s nice to have her back. Never stay away long, Miss Janelle.
