Janelle Monáe Walked Straight Out of a Fairy Tale and on to the Met Gala Red Carpet
Once upon a time, Janelle Monáe shut it down at the Met Gala in a gown that could take your breath away at a glance. We imagine that's how the story will be told long after this Monday, because Janelle's black and white Ralph & Russo confection is the stuff of fashion fairy tales. The train looks as if it was made exclusively for draping across the Met Gala staircase, causing a photo frenzy with every turn. But, it's the fact that this black and white gown manages to pay homage to the night's tricky theme and stay true to the actress's personal style that might be most impressive (for that, she scored a spot on our best dressed list). The only part we haven't figured out is how she managed to sit down in that.
Regardless, look through to see it as it was meant to be seen: from every stunning angle.
