Grammy Awards 2019: Janelle Monáe Takes a Shuttle Craft from the Mother Ship in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

Set phasers on stunning.

It’s terrible, we know. But it was sitting right there and we had to use it. Anyway, this really is drop-dead fabulous:


Now that is why you check out the Grammys red carpet.

Like Cardi B’s vintage Mugler, this feels a bit beyond any conventional style critiques. Seriously, how would that even go? “Hmm. Her space hat doesn’t really coordinate well with her pumps.” Having said that, an admirable job was done at unifying the look by snagging those super-matchy pumps. It turns a fairly overwhelming dress into a sci-fi uniform. If we really wanted to be whiny about it, we suppose we could mention that we hate the hem. Intellectually, we know it’s deliberate, but our senses keep trying to tell us she was attacked by something on the way there.

Whatever. She looks flamazing. The jewelry is especially well-chosen; with a regal, vaguely afro-futurist undertone to them. It all works because it’s really well put together.
