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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
