Janelle Monáe Gets Dramatic in a Thom Browne Dress for the 2022 CFDA Awards – WWD

Janelle Monáe made a grand entrance Monday in New York at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

The “Dirty Computer” artist hit the red carpet in a dramatic Thom Browne look, which included exaggerated lapels, gold buttons and a tulle collar.

The bold piece featured a voluminous train sewn in at the waist, morphing into a ruched cape from the designer’s spring 2023 ready-to-wear collection that was shown last month during Paris Fashion Week.

Monáe coordinated her look with striped knee-high socks and playful roller skates with block-letter heels that read “New York.”

Her makeup followed a similar black and white theme, opting for dramatic eyeliner in a winged style that was traced across her lid and undereye area. She added a pop of color with a bright red lip.

She accessorized with geometric hoop earrings and silver rings and carried a large bag embellished with rhinestones in the shape of a dachshund.

Alexandra Mandelkorn styled Monáe for the night and, in the last one, Christina Ricci, Rachel Brosnahan, Jurnee Smollet and Laura Dern have chosen her.

Monáe received CFDA’s Fashion Icon award in 2017. For her special night, she opted for a similar black and white theme, with an alternating stripe design in the form of a strappy bandeau top, high-waisted pants, a monochrome blazer in black that hung loosely over her right shoulder, rounded frames, and sculpted silver earrings.
