Singer/actress Demi Lovato accessorized her color-block outfit with pieces from REZA. On the red carpet at the 2023 Academy Awards, Janelle Monáe amplified her glitzy style. The singer-actress, who starred in the Oscar-nominated film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and will be presenting at Sunday night’s ceremony, stunned in a one-of-a-kind black and orange Vera Wang gown.
Her color-blocked outfit consisted of a low-cut blouse and a skirt that was barely sewn to it, revealing her flat stomach. Contrasting sharply with the champagne-colored carpet was the wearer’s orange skirt. She accessorized with diamond drop earrings and a daring black choker, all by REZA.
It’s not Janelle Monáe’s first rodeo at the Oscars; she was in Moonlight, which won, and Hidden Figures, which was nominated for Best Picture in 2016. The celebrity’s eye-catching red carpet ensembles have made her famous.
At the January Critics’ Choice Awards, Monáe wore a transparent dress with daring cutouts that commanded attention. Monáe’s stylist, Alexandra Mandelkorn, dressed the singer and actress in a custom Vera Wang Haute Couture translucent turtleneck gown with hand-draped ruching down the full length of it, a train, and strategically placed cutouts to add drama.
The actress has Academy Award experience, having starred in both the Oscar-winning Moonlight and the Oscar-nominated Hidden Figures in 2016. The celebrity is famous for her eye-catching red carpet-attire. This year’s Critics’ Choice Awards were held in January, and Monáe wore a transparent gown with daring cutouts that commanded attention.
Alexandra Mandelkorn, Monáe’s stylist, outfitted the singer and actress in a sheer turtleneck Vera Wang Haute Couture gown with hand-draped ruching down the full length of the garment, as well as a train and strategically placed cutouts for added drama.
While attending the Toronto International Film Festival, she kicked off the tour in a futuristic, fluid Iris van Herpen couture gown. After that, Monáe impressed at the 66th BFI London Film Festival with a brass-button swing coat by Thom Browne and a pair of socks and patent-leather heels.
The singer made quite an impression in a red Christian Siriano gown with a transparent bodice, balloon skirt, and huge headpiece at the European Premiere Closing Night Gala of the 66th BFI London Film Festival. During the Los Angeles premiere of Glass Onion in November, the star wore a high-drama Elie Saab gown with cutout features and a feather skirt that stole the show.
Another eye-catching look was a Robert Wun gown with a dramatic neckline and full train for the Spanish premiere of the film. This year’s Academy Awards will be broadcast live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 12.
