Janelle Monae In Dolce & Gabbana – 2013 BET Awards

Janelle Monae In Dolce & Gabbana - 2013 BET Awards

Sporting her signature pompadour hairdo, Janelle Monae looked her usual slick self while taking to the red carpet for the 2013 BET Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California on Sunday evening.

The R&B singer wore an all-white Dolce & Gabbana suit with a high-neck shirt, which she accessorized with a Katarina Maxine choker, an additional diamond necklace which matched her Norman Silverman cuff earrings, and a selection of rings.

Her slick white suit was paired with Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and a red lip colour to complete her typical masculine approach to red carpet dressing.

Janelle Monae in Topshop – BET’s ‘106 & Park’

Janelle Monae in Topshop - BET's '106 & Park'

Janelle Monáe cut a cool-girl profile for an appearance on BET’s ‘106 & Park’ show at the BET Studios yesterday in New York City, where she premiered the music video for her new single, ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ featuring Erykah Badu.

The pint-sized pop star suited up in a Topshop white blazer with a plunging, black grosgrain collar, paired back to a matching set of wide-leg trousers.

Janelle generally trends towards more androgynous looks, so I wasn’t surprised to see her in a suit.

But I loved the more feminine polish of this crisp ensemble, which was impeccably tailored and elongated her petite frame.

The mannish, monochromatic moment also echoed the styling of her ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ video.

A shimmering, smokey eye and a glossy, nude lip prettified the look even more, while her signature uber-sculptural ‘do added a dose of funky edge.
