In honor of her new movie, the actress and singer wore a black chenille turtleneck sweater and velvet midi skirt from Alexandre Vauthier’s fall 2022 couture collection. She coordinated the sweater and skirt with black ruched fabric high-heel boots. Monáe finished the look accessorizing with several diamond rings and a pair of dagger-shaped diamond earrings.
Vauthier’s fall 2022 collection drew inspiration from the Art Deco codes and shapes of the ‘30s and the edge of the ‘80s.
“Sometimes people say to me, ‘You’re obsessed with the ’80s,’ and maybe, because this is my generation, but it’s not about an influence, it’s that you have all the right techniques to create your own voice and at the right moment, you have the right voice,” Vauthier told WWD during a backstage interview at the show.
Monáe works with stylist Alexandra Mandelkorn to create her looks for the “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” press tour. Mandelkorn has dressed the actress in brands such as Christian Siriano, Schiaparelli and Gucci.
For makeup, Monáe went for an evening-inspired look with a dark burgundy lip, eye-popping mascara and wing-tip eyeliner. For her currently blond hair, she had it pulled into a voluminous bun in the back and slicked to one side in the front for an asymmetric look.
Monáe also made an appearance in New York on Wednesday for a screening of “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. For that event, she wore a tweed cape, white shirt, black tie, leather beret and Paris Texas wedge boots that hit below the knee.
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” debuted in theaters on Nov. 23, before its streaming release on Netflix on Dec. 23. In addition to Hudson, the film stars Daniel Craig, Madelyn Cline, Janelle Monáe, Edward Norton, Ethan Hawke and Kathryn Hahn. The movie is a sequel to the 2019 film “Knives Out.”
