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.
Also Seen On:
Allesandra Ambrosio, Isla Fisher and Leslie Mann, who also looked radiant in their red gowns while attending the Oscars after party.
