Janelle Monáe Does her Style Thing at the Independent Spirit Awards

Posted on February 26, 2017

At this point, she’s so rigidly consistent and does what she does so well that we almost feel like we should just shut up and let it play out. What more could we add to the visual treats on display here?


Haha. You really though we were going to be quiet, didn’t you. Silly kitten.

While we think a lot of what she does is above critique, because she has clear style goals and a message she wants to get across, and because she demonstrates a high level of understanding when it comes to using your style choices to make an impact.


The shoes really are a bit much here. We realize the concept of “a bit much” almost seems quaint in discussing Janelle’s style, and that you could pick anything from the hair ornaments to the pedicure to peg as the Line That Shouldn’t Have Been Crossed, but for us, it’s the pearl-and-gold shoes. With all the checks and stripes, pattern and boldness going on with this look, it really didn’t need more design elements added to it.

That coat is a stunner, no?
