Janelle Monáe's Mind-Blowing Illusion Dress at the NFL Honors is the Fashion Statement You Can't Miss

Thursday night's NFL Honors recognized the best in the league — but the real winner was Janelle Monáe, who stole the show with the illusion minidress she wore on the red carpet.

The dress was designed by Tony Ward, a Lebanese-Italian designer known for using unique materials and structural techniques. It featured a billowing circular pattern and was adorned with black, white, and silver sequins, creating a trippy mirrored effect.

Janelle (whose pronouns are she/they) wore her hair in a low-cut with a gorgeous Betty Boop swoop and a bright red lip. She paired the dress with black open-toe heels with sparkly ankle straps and shiny black earrings.

It's only the latest amazing red carpet look that Janelle has served up, too.

She also looked stunning at the Grammys the other night in a black sequined dress with a plunging neckline.

Before that, there was the breathtaking floral-accented two-piece set that she wore to a pre-Grammys party.
