Janelle Monáe Loses Her Mojo in Chanel at the SAG Awards

Posted on January 31, 2017

We don’t know, you guys.


We’re starting to think Miss Janelle is running out of fabulous black-and-white dresses for awards season. We weren’t a hundred percent on her PGAs dress and now…



Ooof. No.

We’re definitely not a hundred percent on this one.


Two things really work against her here: the proportions, which chop her up, and the patterns and textures, which thicken her visually.


And we definitely didn’t need the floral cuffs and collar on top of everything else.



She’s a lady who can usually handle a lot of look, but there’s too much going on here even for her. We like to think the combination of the colors and the Chanel label dazzled her enough that she momentarily lost her head (and her innate sense of chicness) because otherwise, we’re afraid she’s heading into the Oscars with something crazy or disappointing on hold.
