Looks We Love: Janelle Monae Is A Lady In Crimson At The Vanity Fair Oscars Party

A colour as timeless as it is eye-catching.

We Love...

Janelle Monae, giving us structured fierceness in a bold head-to-toe red ensemble at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party. The actress and singer tends to opt for suits with a twist on the red carpet and she did not disappoint in this striking two piece.

Why It Works:

From dresses to jackets, crimson dominated the catwalk during International Fashion Weeks. Valentino, a designer with a penchant for this colour, would’ve been proud to see how consistently it showed up in ‘street styles’ pre his Autumn/Winter catwalk show.

And, of course, crimson red made an appearance on the Valentino catwalk, too.
