Posted on June 27, 2016

Janelle Monáe attends the 2016 BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

 

We’re still high off the fumes of the Game of Thrones season finale (about which we’ll be dropping a special podcast later this morning, so hold your thoughts), which is imbuing the following stock phrase with all sorts of layers of meaning for us:

SLAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY, QUEEEEEEEEEEEEN:

Okay, we have been staring at these shots for 25 minutes now, trying to come up with something to say other than the soon-to-be-dated catchphrase above. We’re finding it impossible. She is perfection, head to toe (although we reserve the right to criticize her footwear should it become available for public viewing). On virtually anyone else – except maybe Gaga – this would come off like a total clown suit, but she gives is real chicness and style just by being the one to wear it. And also through flawless styling choices. There’s simply not one thing here we’d consider changing, if we were in any sort of position to suggest changes. You WERQ your flawless style, lady. No one else can do what you do, which is why you need to keep doing it as much as you can.
