(She also co-stars in the films “Moonlight” and “Concealed Figures,” each of which are up for Academy Awards. No huge deal.) For the special celebration, she wore an Antonio Marras “Taza” gown from the Italian designer’s Spring 2017 selection. It is really a mash-up gown of lace, animal prints and other indiscernible motifs that perfectly aligns with Monae’s artistic spirit each on and off the pink carpet, phase or huge display screen. (Once more, no huge deal.) She finished her glimpse with a straightforward top knot and a bold pink lip.

Monae is identified for sticking to a extremely robust #aesthetic, consisting of a strict black-and-white color palette. Somehow, she always comes up with a thing inventive and first — nevertheless we are not totally shocked. This is, right after all, a lady who can pull off donning googly eyes in her hair.
