Janelle Monáe at the “Welcome to Marwen” Los Angeles Premiere: IN or OUT?

Posted on December 11, 2018

Hard as it may be to accept, we’re not sure we’re feeling what Miss Janelle is dishing out on the fashion front. We who have always been positively dazzled by her quirky-chic ways find ourselves decidedly underwhelmed on this one. Darlings, it is your duty to either support your local T Lo or tell them that they’re nuts.


She’s gorgeous, of course. Everthing happening from the neck up is inarguable, as far as we’re concerned. And we haven’t suddenly decided we dislike her strict B&W take. She’s always found inventive ways to go colorless in her style choices without making them seem dull or generic and we don’t think she’s necessarily failed on that front here. But we just don’t love this suit. Everything is too boxy and proportionally weird. We could see that short, square-shaped jacket over a dress or a high-waisted pair of pants, but we don’t love it over an A-line mini. But we might have accepted every bit of it a little easier if the seam and pattern placement on that skirt wasn’t eyelid-twitch-inducing.

Are we wrong? We’re asking.
