Attention Twihards!!

Janelle Monae is serving up a straight Volturi vibe at the 2014 Met Gala—and we're all sorts of obsessed!

Janelle's super high and strappy shoes are super stunning too, with her signature pompadour to boot!

This pants look might be the coolest ensemble on the red carpet right now…

She's so fashion forward, you guys!

Much fab.

CoverGirl’s latest television spot is star-studded and fabulous, but instead of promoting any of their makeup line, they’re promoting something a little different: women empowerment!

Starring Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, P!nk, Queen Latifah, Janelle Monáe, Becky G, and even ice hockey star Natalie Wiebe, their #GirlsCan ad is looking to leave people inspired and encouraged.

With all these stunning ladies sharing their experiences on how they changed "girls can’t" into "girls can", we feel this campaign is one to be remembered.

Especially with how rare a message this is in the beauty industry! As Ellen says, "easy, breezy, and beautiful".

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!

Janelle Monae Is Classy & Quirky On The BET Awards' Red Carpet

BET Awards 2013: Janelle Monae walks the red carpet.

Classy from head to toe!

Janelle Monae stayed true to her signature look at the BET Awards in El Lay on Sunday.

The singer rocked a crisp white Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo with a high-neck blouse and strappy silver Jimmy Choo heels, adding some extra bling via a sparkly Katarina Maxine choker around her neck, Neil Lane rings, and Norman Silverman ear cuffs.

And her coiled hairdo and red lips added just a touch of quirk.

Gotta love her!

Ashanti Is The Ultimate BET Awards Bunhead

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionAshantiJanelle MonaeGrammysBET AwardsRed CarpetGivenchy

BET Awards 2013: Ashanti walks the red carpet.

Ashanti gave Janelle Monáe a bun run for her money at the BET Awards Sunday night when she showed up wearing the biggest cinnamon roll bun on the side of her head.

There's a reason why she wore a more subtle look than her appearance at this year's Grammys, and it's not just because of her preference for wearing breakfast pastries in her hair.

After her flower bomb in February, Ashanti stepped up the sexiness with a long-sleeved, white Aiisha mini dress that included lace embellishments all over it.

She capped off the ensem with nude Givenchy heels, white drop earrings and smokey eye makeup.

Not the best look, but most definitely an upgrade, so we'll give an A to Miz A!
