Janelle Monae In Akris - 2013 Billboard Annual Women in Music Event

Janelle Monae joined Pink for Billboard’s annual Women in Music event held at Capitale in New York City on Tuesday (December 10), where she received the ‘Rising Star Award’.

Sticking to her favoured black and white, the talented singer – who always works an androgynous, chic look with her signature quiff/mohawk hairstyle and red lipstick – looked stunning wearing black leggings with a black crystal studded jacket from Akris’ Fall 2013 collection.

The chic moto jacket with a high-neck collar is a spectacular piece. She styled the look with Christian Louboutin lace-up open-toe booties and a selection of silver jewels including an on-trend ear cuff.
