Lupita Nyong’o and Janelle Monáe at “The Pre-VMA Fem The Future Brunch with Janelle Monáe” event in New York City.
Kittens, let’s take a short break from all the over-the-top gownery and attention-seeking of the VMAs red carpet. Let’s have brunch with Lupita and Janelle.
We’re finding it hard to assess their outfits because we’re struck speechless by the tragedy of never having brunch with Lupita and Janelle. We’re currently mourning the loss of something we didn’t even know we wanted.
But we’ll dry our eyes and get to work for you guys. You make it all happen. You fuel our bitchery.
Actually, there’s no bitchery to be had here because we think they both look fantastic. It’s true that Lupita’s matchy bridesmaid shoes make us cringe a little, but she looks so good in orange that any critiques we might have die on our lips. It’s a fabulous print and a relatively simple, breezy style, which makes it perfect for the venue.
Janelle’s just straight-up perfect. Everything going on here is pretty much without flaw.
