Janelle Monae in Topshop – BET’s ‘106 & Park’

Janelle Monae in Topshop - BET's '106 & Park'

Janelle Monáe cut a cool-girl profile for an appearance on BET’s ‘106 & Park’ show at the BET Studios yesterday in New York City, where she premiered the music video for her new single, ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ featuring Erykah Badu.

The pint-sized pop star suited up in a Topshop white blazer with a plunging, black grosgrain collar, paired back to a matching set of wide-leg trousers.

Janelle generally trends towards more androgynous looks, so I wasn’t surprised to see her in a suit.

But I loved the more feminine polish of this crisp ensemble, which was impeccably tailored and elongated her petite frame.

The mannish, monochromatic moment also echoed the styling of her ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ video.

A shimmering, smokey eye and a glossy, nude lip prettified the look even more, while her signature uber-sculptural ‘do added a dose of funky edge.

    The suit suits her! I’m not a big fan of the look but it’s working for her. The hair is a little silly, though.

    This suit is so perfect on her! I’m used to seeing her in black suits, so this is a refreshing change. The fit is great and her makeup and hair are beautiful.

    He video is amazing, great song as well! She is so feminine in her video, I don’t understand why she hides her gorgeous body in tailored suits? But I understand her reasoning behind it. Just a shame cause she is a gorgeous woman!

    She knows how to power dress, and for her body shape too. Genius style!!! LOVE Janelle!

    I would’ve liked this more, if the pants would’ve been more fitted.
