Janelle Monáe's Mind-Blowing Illusion Dress at the NFL Honors is the Fashion Statement You Can't Miss

She looks like a CD. 🤯😍

Thursday night's NFL Honors recognized the best in the league — but the real winner was Janelle Monáe, who stole the show with the illusion minidress she wore on the red carpet.

The dress was designed by Tony Ward, a Lebanese-Italian designer known for using unique materials and structural techniques. It featured a billowing circular pattern and was adorned with black, white, and silver sequins, creating a trippy mirrored effect.

Janelle (whose pronouns are she/they) wore her hair in a low-cut with a gorgeous Betty Boop swoop and a bright red lip. She paired the dress with black open-toe heels with sparkly ankle straps and shiny black earrings.

Tell me: What's 4+4?


It's only the latest amazing red carpet look that Janelle has served up, too.

She also looked stunning at the Grammys the other night in a black sequined dress with a plunging neckline.

Before that, there was the breathtaking floral-accented two-piece set that she wore to a pre-Grammys party.

But honestly, I don't think Janelle has ever given us a bad look!

Can't wait to see what she wears next!
