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.
