Janelle Monae’s “Fem the Future” Pre-Oscars Luncheon Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on March 03, 2018

Miss Janelle partnered with Belvedere Vodka (mainstay of fine brunches everywhere) for a “Fem the Future” brunch, attended by all her most stylish and fabulous friends. We figure our invite got lost in the mail or something.

 

Ava DuVernay

She has such a unique style; this sort of Afro-Boho-Nerdy Chic thing. We would never applaud this as a conventional red carpet look, but it’s so right for her and just right for this event.

 

Danai Gurira in Thom Browne

Love the combination of buttoned-down professionalism with a touch of whimsy. That should be the official bag of Bitter Kittens everywhere. Or at least, for Bitter Kittens with lots of cash lying around gathering dust.

 

 

Dee Rees

Kinda living for Miss Dee’s Star Trek Leisure Suit realness here. It’s a bit goofy, but it’s an Oscars weekend brunch, dammit. Let the lady be goofy and shiny while she sips her mimosa.

 

 

Geena Davis

Love Miss Geena but this sweater dress is kind of drab for pictures. That sad sash doesn’t help.

 

Janelle Monáe in Bella Freud

We think this picture speaks for itself.

And Olivia Wilde? Girl, you just got schooled.

 

Lupita Nyong’o in Giorgio Armani

LOVE. It’s bold and bright, chic and casual. Perfect for brunch and for pictures. We don’t expect vigorous agreement on this, but we love the white pumps. They make the look.

 

Rosario Dawson

Ms. Dawson has an art class to teach at the kids center later this afternoon. Ms. Dawson always seems to have an art class in her immediate future.

 

Tessa Thompson in Rodarte

Kickass, goofy and sort of fabulous. Only one of those words is used with any frequency when describing a Rodarte look. We’re sure you can guess which one. Love the coat. The t-shirt and leather pants are good-on-paper pieces that don’t quite live up to the coat.
