Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Janelle Monae In Fausto Puglisi - Variety Breakthrough of the Year Awards

Janelle Monae took to the red carpet for the Variety Breakthrough of the Year Awards during the 2014 International CES at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on Thursday (January 9) in Las Vegas, Nevada prior to her performance.

The singer broke her strict black-and-white dress code, wearing a Fausto Puglisi Fall 2013 tartan biker jacket featuring leather sleeves with gold embellished detailing – a signature of this collection.

For someone with such impeccable style, this look falls surprisingly flat. I think it’s the white jodhpurs which are killing the look for me.

2013 BET Awards - ArrivalsThe classic cat eye is an evergreen trend that always adds some extra glam to a look.

Janelle Monae brought a youthful approach to the classic trend by pairing it with her flawless skin, coral lips, and her signature pompadour.

To create her striking eyes, makeup artist Saisha Beecham patted COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel over her entire lid.

Then, from the crease to the lashline, she applied the lighter shade from the COVERGIRL ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire.

Next, Beecham defined each eye with a clean line of COVERGIRL Ink It! By Perfect Point Plus in Black Ink across the top lash line and then flared out into a subtle wing at each outer corner.

The same liner was then applied to the lower water line.

Finally, several coats of COVERGIRL Flamed Out Water Resistant Mascara in Black Blaze were applied to the lashes for a gorgeous feathered effect.
