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

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.

    The proportions are off from the waist down. The leggings are spectacularly unflattering and the original pants with a hint of volume would have looked fantastic and would have actually created a more androgynous look.

    I agree with the others–I don’t want to see anyone’s butt or the front of their butt in leggings, no matter how perfectly toned.

    Unfortunately I agree that leggings kind of let this look down. I loved it when I first saw it, (thank you for featuring her). But I was so entranced by that amazing jacket and her beautiful face/makeup/har, that I never even made it that far down to realize she was wearing those…things! Disappointing from the hips down, delightful from the hips up.
