Janelle Monae was at Smithsonian Magazine’s 2018 American Ingenuity Awards in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday (December 5).
She celebrated her signature black-and-white palette with this Blaze Milano Fall 2018 tuxedo dress.
But, as is customary, she completely made the look her own by adding the decorative white dress shirt and two-tone lace-up shoes.
As is also to be expected, she brought even more personality via the singular bauble earring and sassy pearl-encrusted beret that also had unicorn and peace-sign pins for meaningful, modern panache.
It just really made this little mini all the more special, and she worked it like no other.
