Janelle Monae In Tadashi Shoji - 2014 Met Gala

If you were expecting Janelle Monae to stick to her favoured black and white at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City, you may have been in for a small surprise.

The musician did wear a white blouse and black trousers, but she also added a dramatic red and black crewel-embroidered Tadashi Shoji Fall 2014 tulle cape.

Adding the cape was just what was required to shake up her look and add a touch of drama to it in order to align the look with the theme of the night.

Jimmy Choo ‘Damek’ sandals, Kwiat jewels, and a chic braided updo completed her look.
