Janelle Monae In Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh – Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces Party

Janelle Monae was also at Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces event on Friday (April 21) in West Hollywood, joining Zoey Deutch.

She took the fresh theme as an opportunity to introduce a few new shades to her favoured black-and-white colour palette with an Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh Spring 2017 frock.

The dress itself was so complex in its randomly eclectic mix of patterns, it could have stood on its own quite decently—although I would have loved to see the scarf-like piece removed.

Yet, Janelle has never been one to shirk in the accessories department, so she loaded the look with Wolford’s Dot Tights and an Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch along with drop earrings and a choker.

Ironically, as a result, the look appeared less fresh. I would have removed the jewelry and tights, keeping her signature hair accoutrement—fanciful little birds this time.

    This is a true mess of a dress. The styling is also very sloppy.

    Love the dress and how it fits on Janelle. I think the styling was better on the model though.

    The dress is a mess and her styling makes this look even more a mess!

    Her style at the beginning of her career used to be so fresh and cool, but she has been looking a mess this past year. Ever since she started promoting Moonlight.

    No. This is just a mess.

    No. Usually, I love Janelle Monae’s overdone looks, but this is an exception.

    I don’t know… It’s a lot to pull off. Usually Janelle is one of my favs so I’m partial to kind of liking it anyway.
