Janelle Monae’s ‘Creed’ Premiere Look

Monae donned a monochrome two-piece ensemble by Australian designer Manning Cartell. The singer finished off her retro look with a wide-brimmed black hat and a statement clutch by Petits Joueurs.

“Looking fabulous as always at tonight’s #CREEDPremiere,” reads a tweet from the Creed Twitter account.

In Creed, Michael B Jordan stars as Adonis Johnson, the son of the late Apollo Creed, who was killed in the ring in Rocky IV. Sylvester Stallone reprises the part of Rocky, who serves as Adonis’ trainer in the spinoff flick. Tessa Thompson joins the cast as Adonis’s love interest, Bianca

“I’m honored and excited to be here to watch Creed, to support Michael B. Jordan, my good friend Tessa Thompson, [writer and director] Ryan [Coogler] ,” Monae said on the Creed red carpet. “This is a big moment for all of them and I’m just so proud.”

Monae also noted that it won’t be long until she’s walking the red carpet for her own movie. “I’m in my first film, next year it will be out. It’s called Moonlight,” said Monae, adding of her career in music, “I am also nurturing the careers of others. I have a record label, Wonderland Records.”

Creed hits theaters Nov. 25.
