Monae arrived in head-to-toe red, striking coquettish poses as she made her way to the luxury brand’s fall ’19 Paris Fashion Week show. The actress-musician had on a tunic-style outfit that included cut-outs for her arms, a bow at the neck and pointy heels with knee-high socks. She completed the look with a beret.
