MET Gala 2023: Janelle Monáe strips down to sequin bikini on Red Carpet


During fashion’s biggest night, singer-turned-actress Janelle Monáe made quite the fashion statement during her brief appearance on the red carpet during the 2023 Met Gala on May 1 sporting a sparkling two-piece set.

The ‘Glass Onion’ star put on a show at the 2023 Met Gala by changing out of a Thom Browne ensemble which featured a black-and-white patchwork jacket worn over a giant hoop skirt.

37-year-old Janelle gradually began taking off pieces of clothing until there was nearly nothing left, wearing only a black bra top and bottoms with pearl fringe and a pannier petticoat layered over the lingerie.

The singer who is non-binary and uses both she/her and they/them pronouns, topped off the new look with a cat-shaped purse.

The star, 37, previously teased the transforming Thom Browne look to People, describing it as both a ‘surprise’ and ‘an experience that I’ve put together.’

‘I go as an art student,’ they added to the outlet of the fashion-filled night. ‘You have an assignment. This is the theme. And me and my team are literally like art students collaborating on a group project, and we’re there.’

The screen star also has a special connection to this year’s ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ theme, however, having made her Met debut in 2011 with Lagerfeld himself as a date.

She said last night: ‘I went with Karl, so this is sort of full circle for us to be honoring him. I’m really excited about what we’ll do,’ she said while sporting a crisp white Chanel skirt and black trousers.

The Met Gala raises funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and celebrates the Costume Institute’s annual exhibits.

This year’s theme, ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,’ celebrates the life and career of late designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Lagerfeld, who is best known for his work as a creative director for Chanel among other critically-acclaimed collaborations, was also recognized for his ever-evolving signature style that included Edwardian and gothic-inspired suits almost always paired with a white collar, gloves, a ponytail and other distinctive accessories.
