Janelle Monáe brought down the house at Coachella weekend 1 last night in Indio, Calif. in a series of bold, military-inspired looks.
The 33-year-old’s first ensemble featured a Dead Lotus Couture black latex bodysuit with a white harness, which she wore underneath a red, white and black cropped jacket.
For footwear, Monáe selected Chanel boots, worn over semisheer black tights. Her look was completed by a custom-made Ruslan Baginskiy hat with red ribbon detailing and futuristic Nicholas Kirkwood glasses spelling out her name.
Another powerful look, which the songstress wears in Grammys poster, featured a coat with a long train made from an African mudcloth fabric. Monáe punctuated the outfit with a black-and-white kufi hat. She kept on the same Chanel boots.
Other outfits included sparkly pants custom-made by Bebe Aguirre — which the singer donned for hit “Make Me Feel” — and “Pynk” merchandise created for her by Duran Lantik (bold “vagina” pants with a sweatshirt). The 8-time Grammy nominee made five outfit changes in all throughout the night.
Apart from Monáe, performers at Coachella night 1 included Willow and Jaden Smith, Kacey Musgraves and headliner Donald Glover.
There’s still a full two days of performances on the docket, and fans can expect to see sets from Ariana Grande, Tame Impala, Kid Cudi, Billie Eilish and many more.
