Kittens, we’re going to take a short break from Met Gala opinionating and turn the final word on this look over to you. But we will be expressing opinions nonetheless because we can only be as God made us: opinionated as fuck.
Anyway, here is Miss Janelle, making a return to her strict black-and-white dress code of a few years ago:
Here is what we see: A take on the classic church lady hat finery as well as a somewhat witty approach to mimicking a halo. A bold suit that speaks of good and evil, dark and light, masculine and feminine aspects, playing up her obsession with duality, as referenced by her recent Two-Face cosplay. As with so many of Miss Janelle’s looks, she’s telling a story of herself with this one. But is she telling it well?
