Monica In Balenciaga – 2017 ESSENCE Festival

Monica attended the 2017 ESSENCE Festival, where she spoke onstage on Friday (June 30) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I’m sure many of you will join me in first seeing a men’s nightshirt in this Balenciaga Resort 2017 candy-striped design.

Yet, the breezy ease with which Monica wore this witty interpretation of resort-style lounge wear did somewhat captivate and draw me in.

Her platinum, pixie—cut as sharply as that chopped sleeve—did much in the way of elevating this particular look, making it both as relevant and as polished as a dressing gown can be.

What do you make of it?

    I don’t love the dress but having not seen Monica for years I’m happy she looks so great and the pixie looks very chic.

    Considering the event I think there is a political message with this look giving Gvasalia is very much involved in social issues when showing his collections. While the blogger thought on a pyjama I immediately thought on those middle east men’s attires and the mediterranean refugee crises. Perhaps I am over analizing…who knows…
