Janelle Monae In Christian Siriano – 2019 Met Gala

Posted by Rachel Watkins
Janelle Monae In Christian Siriano - 2019 Met Gala

Janelle Monae’s look was more than meets the eye — literally and no pun intended — at the 2019 Met Gala on Monday (May 6) in New York City.

Her custom Christian Siriano creation was the epitome of the campiest camp — right down to the special effects of the blinking-eye bodice. But, it was also so smart in its design.

The dress paid homage to one of Janelle’s favourite artists, Pablo Picasso, with the abstraction of the facial features.

The two sides of the tulip-hipped gown, as well as the stack of precariously positioned, gravity-defying top hats, also offered a certain androgynous mood — as is signature of the entertainer.

This is how you garner all the gazes at the Met Gala pink carpet.

    I love this, and I think this was the better of the two Lil Kim-esque gowns

    I would’ve loved a photo of her and Ezra next to each other. She knocked it out of the ballpark.

    Christian Siriano has come a long way since the ‘Project runway’ days,

    This is such a WOW moment. On theme and so much fun. I love this skirt to top hats!!!

  16. Guest May 7, 2019 at 3:26 am #

    She was also one of my favorites of the night. This theme is perfect for her and she did not disappoint. Fashion with a sense of humor – Love it.

  17. Guest May 7, 2019 at 3:17 am #

    This is camp at its best! The array of hats were a bit much in my opinion as they detract from the fabulousness of the dress which is a work or art unto itself.

  18. Phee phee May 7, 2019 at 3:14 am #

    Its pretty amazing. Its fashion and art, and something I can appreciate.
    a wondrously ott look. but cohesive.

    • Guest May 7, 2019 at 12:59 pm #

      I agree. This is both fashion and art, and I really enjoy the playfulness of this look.

  19. SarahS95 May 7, 2019 at 2:30 am #

    Love this!! One of the Best Dressed of the night – Camp is entirely Janelle’s vibe and she pulled this off better than I could’ve imagined. LOVE

    Not surprised that Ms Monae killed this, this is so in her wheelhouse. It’s like a Picasso piece come to life. Top contender for sure.

  21. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:20 am #

    This is so much fun and yet has a wink at sexy!

  22. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:17 am #

    Yes, this fits the theme and the occasion – this is so OTT, there is humor, theatricality and exaggeration…but once again Janelle overdid as usual imo – she could’ve concentrated either on the absurdity of the multiple hats or the eyes elements, not all at once..it’s a circus.

    • Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:37 am #

      …personally I’d prefer if she had ditched the excessive hats, left only one for the finishing accent…it would let the shape of the gown, the glove, and the eye elements make a better, cleaner statement.

  23. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:16 am #

    These theme was perfect for Janelle and she absolutely killed it.

  24. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:14 am #

    I love this!

  25. Isabela May 7, 2019 at 2:12 am #

    Perfect!

  26. JasLinds May 7, 2019 at 2:11 am #

    Doesn’t Janelle dress this theme all the time? haha
    This is SO GOOD – every element is so well thought through and pulled off perfectly.

  27. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:10 am #

    Wow, I am in awe! She pulls this off so effortlessly. Her dress is so fitting for the event and theme. Absolutely love this look. Best dressed contender for me.
