BET Awards 2018: Happy PRIDE from Space Queen Janelle Monáe

Posted on June 25, 2018

Bow down to your queer queen from outer space.



A look like this one doesn’t really lend itself to any sort of fashion critique, because traditional modes of style are not as important as the message and the high-impact way it’s being delivered. Which is a nicer way of saying that we LOVE the rainbow skirt but find the fuzzy bathing suit bodice to be little more than an afterthought. And while both the hat and the flying saucer clutch are fun (the former being something of a Janelle trademark item), they’re not what we’d normally consider well-chosen accessories for this particular dress.

But like we said, traditional critiques don’t really apply. Queen Janelle of Planet Pride has alighted and we should be spending more time supplicating ourselves to her fabulosity and less time nitpicking it.
