It’s cold outside, but Janelle Monae and Sevyn Streeter are turning up the heat. Peep their red hot carpet arrivals at the Billboard Power 100 party and Naomi Campbell’s new magazine cover inside….
When it comes to slayage, Janelle Monae has a degree or two in the art. She’s constantly hitting up red carpet events where she’s easily best dressed. And last night was no different.
The WONDLAND honcho hit the carpet at Billboard’s Power 100 celebration held at the Bouchon Beverly Hills serving an uber fab and chic look. Janelle, who is featured in a new Pepsi ad, worked the carpet in a red tailored suit, a crisp white button up and red hot sandals. She finished her look with a colorful square clutch.
Two of her WONDALAND artists, Jidenna and Roman Gianarthur, have been nominated for their first Grammy in the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category for "Classic Man." Nice!
Also turning heads in red, R&B songbird and Grammy winner Sevyn Streeter showed off her curves (and her new tatt on her chest) in a cut-out midi dress. She has been hard at work in the studio working on her sophomore album. She won a GRAMMY in 2011 for her writing credits on Chris Brown's F.A.M.E. album.
Looking good Sevyn!
"American Crime" hottie Trevor Jackson opted to wear a shorts suit to the occasion. Hmm...
Soulful songstress Andra Day was all smiles on the carpet. She's gearing up to perform at Hillary Clinton's campaign "I'm With Her" concert at Radio City Music Hall on March 2nd.
Legendary recording artist George Clinton -- rocking a more clean cut look -- came out to party with a lady friend. If things work in his favor, he'll nab his very first GRAMMY if Kendrick Lamar wins for his album To Pimp A Butterfly. K-Dot and the funk icon collaborated on the track “Wesley's Theory."
BET's President of Programming Stephen Hill was also in the mix.
On the magazine circuit....
Runway slayer and model chick Naomi Campbell graces the March 2016 cover of Allure magazine. Naomi is a vet in the game and continues to bring it with every new cover and spread.
Inside, the 45-year-old model opens up about the models of today in comparison to the models back in her heyday (which is still technically happening). She points out that work ethic and the technology driven world are two factors that contribute to the huge differences. She said,
“From what I understand, the era of supermodels is now in again. But this is a different time. It's a different work ethic. I think social media really just changed it."
“It's the way the new pop culture is and what's happening in the world."
But don’t think she’s jealous. She’s content with her legacy and when she entered into the fashion world. She said, "I'm grateful for my timing and the way it worked. I wouldn't want to change it for the world."
