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.
