Janelle Monáe Will Surprise You at the Alvin Ailey Theater’s Opening Night Gala Benefit

Posted on November 30, 2017

Before you start clapping in delight at another fun and quirky two-toned Janelle ensemble, we feel it imperative that you be warned. Miss Janelle is a world-class master at securing red carpet coverage, which means she has a weapons-grade mastery of that most volatile of red carpet coverage standbys, the scrolldown.

You’ve been warned – in an obtuse manner, we admit. Sue us. We went for drama. Anyway:


Yeah, no. Not even you, sweetie.

As we indicated, it starts off great, in that fun, black-and-white, pattern-mixing Janelle sort of way. But as is so often the case with truly scary fashion, it all goes off the rails right around the crotch. Or in this case, both crotches.

Miss J, we love you, and we damn sure love Thom Browne and his particular form of fabulous cray, but a skirt-pant hybrid is a thing that cannot be. And Mr. Browne, while we dislike speaking on behalf of anyone, especially women, we’re pretty sure the vast majority of them are not interested in sporting a second crotch right around their knees. Just a tip from us. Ladies, feel free to back us up on this one.
