Janelle Monáe Makes a Rare Style Mistake at the 2016 Hollywood Film Awards

Posted on November 07, 2016

Janelle Monáe attends the 2016 Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills, California.


Hmmmm. We don’t think so, sorry to say.







We were going to subject this to an “In or Out” vote, but she’s so beloved and fabulous, we’re pretty sure we know exactly how it was going to go down. Using our executive powers, we have rescinded your right to vote on the matter.

As if. Kittens, we could shut the comments section down and you’d all be sending us emails and tweets and snapchat things and smoke signals and carrier pigeons just to let us know what you think of Miss Janelle’s look. When you almost literally hang out a shingle declaring yourselves opinionated, your sure to attract people equally, if not more opinionated. That’s why we love you Bitter Kittens so much, after all.

Anyway, we’re rambling but this look is awful. Ut. No talking, please. It’s awful. It starts off great, but the minute our eyes hit those pants, the proportions of the whole thing go way out of whack. Chop the tail off that jacket and it works perfectly with those pants, but if she wants to go for that sort of dramatic sweep, the cut of the pants needs to be a lot slimmer than that. We’re not talking legging-tight or anything, but definitely tailored down to the ankle. It’s a great idea for a look, but the proportions just don’t work.

Okay, now you can talk. After the style credits, that is.

And then there’s a bunch of buttons and salary-payers after that, but we promise, any second now, you can let us know.
