In fact she is a great singer there are no doubts, but the talent of Janelle Monae goes much further than music, we also love her style
The singer, dancer, songwriter is also a fashion symbol. Janelle Monae has an unique black and white style, what shows her vintage influences, not only in her music as in her way to dress.

Hats are indispensable, and her hair is always made in a black way. You can see more on her new single “Q.u.e.e.n.”:
