Janelle Monae in Jenny Packham at the 2017 Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards

Thanks to her role in 'Hidden Figures', we are going to see a lot of Janelle Monae this awards season. Yesterday evening(January 2nd) she hit the red carpet at the 2017 Palm Springs International Film Festival Film awards gala at the Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, CA. 

Sticking with her signature hues, Janelle wore a JENNY PACKHAM PRE-FALL 2017 ivory organza cage halter gown with black & gold pipping and a crisscross strappy back. On the runway, Janelle's gown featured sheer nude panels but she opted for black which provided more coverage. 

I actually prefer the gown with the sheer nude panels but I also think the black works. However I find the gown to be too long on Janelle but she owns it as always and that doesn't overshadow how beautiful she looks. Loving her hair & make-up which topped off her look along with a JIMMY CHOO clutch and BRIAN ATWOOD heels. Which version of the gown do you prefer, Janelle's or the runway?

  1. I like both versions. She looks good!

  2. Because I said soTuesday, January 03, 2017

    Both versions are beautiful. She deserves a spot for the Best Dressed ,me thinks.

  3. Janelle's! Not entirely sold on the hair, but I love the graphic effect with the black panels, the flattering fit and silhouette, and her red lip is perfect. One of the best of the event easily.

  4. Gorgeous. I really like the black panels. The contrast makes the dress much more striking. Hair and makeup are spot on.
