Get The Look For Less: Janelle Monae Edgy Street Style
Janelle Monae spent some time in New York City this week and made a statement with her unique style.
Monae who was in the city promoting her new single, a collaboration with rising MC Jidenna, called “Yoga” and for BET’s Black Girls Rock event, came out of her downtown hotel in a white and black fur coat on top of black leggings and a t-shirt. She accessorized the outfit with an oversized hat and chunky wedge sneakers. The singer’s look was a twist on her trademark black and white suit, that was very modern and chic. At the Black Girls Rock event the singer opened the show with a rousing performance of her song “Electric Lady.”
