Janelle Monáe in Marc Jacobs at Instagram’s “Fem The Future” Brunch

Posted on February 13, 2019

It’s the Wednesday after a major awards weekend, which means we’re just now getting down to the task of cleaning out our pre-awards party looks folders! And hey, that should be considered something of a tribute to the efforts of whoever gets the spotlight because you sure must’ve worn something worth talking about if we’re still talking about it four days later.

Anyway, that’s Miss Janelle’s cue to step up and show off her surprisingly simple and bright ensemble:

 

A reminder that Miss Janelle opted for her usual Space Queen attire for the Grammys, making this something of a palate refresher before the main event. We love it, not least because it manages to be both unexpected and very much her, tip to toe. The colors look great on her and we love the idea of a huge jacket worn with a white brimmed hat and booties. It’s sharp, bold and fun. She looks fantastic. Our only quibble is with the piss-poor solution on display for the too-long sleeves. We realize a hem job might not have been in the cards on short notice, but surely there’s a better way to handle it than simply rolling them under like that. No one on the style team had hemming tape and an iron at the ready?
