Janelle Monáe put an eclectic spin on monochromatic style for the 12th annual Neon Carnival 2023. Presented by Levi’s, the highly-anticipated party lit up the desert in Therma, Calif., on Saturday during Coachella season.
Monáe arrived at the coveted outdoor dance party wearing a cutout crop top. The Grammy-nominated singer and rapper teamed the lightweight separate with high-waist sheer tights. The undergarment was outlined with velvet accents on the waistline, outseam and near the hem.
Giving her look a chic touch, the “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” star complemented her look with dark futuristic sunglasses, Chanel earrings and a beaded choker necklace. To keep her hands free Monáe strapped a mini white Chanel belt bag around her waist.
As for glam, the “Yoga” musician went with soft, dewy makeup and a bold matte red lip. She styled her hair in boho knotless braids and curled the ends.
Completing Monáe’s wardrobe was a pair of Dr. Martens combat boots. The classic silhouette includes premium leather uppers, Doc’s DNA visible yellow stitching, fabric laces and sturdy metal eyelets for a secure fit and breathable textile lining allows for a drier, more comfortable foot environment.
Monáe’s shoe style is often glamorous and sleek. The “I Like That” artist often pairs her red carpet outfits with heeled sandals, platforms and pointed-toe pumps from top brands including Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti and Christian Louboutin. Off-duty, she can also be seen in Oxford loafers, heeled boots, Converse and L.A.M.B. sneakers.
