Janelle Monáe steals the show in rainbow pride gown at 2018 BET Awards


Janelle Monáe is usually known for her bold style risks (who could forget that red Christian Siriano pantsuit) but her look at this year's BET Awards blew us out of the water.

The singer and actress -- who also performed at the 2018 awards show on Sunday -- welcomed Pride Month in a head-to-toe rainbow gown by designer Nicolas Jebran. The gown, which featured a sequined and see-through fitted bodice and ruffled skirt, was one of Monáe's more daring looks to-date.

The star accessorized the look with a black conductor's hat and sequined clutch, along with beautiful earrings from the Tiffany Paper Flowers collection and colorful Tiffany rings.

Monáe has been particularly vocal in recent months about LGTBQ rights and her sexual identity. In late April, the "I Like That" singer identified as "pansexual" in a 'Rolling Stones' cover.

She said, "Being a black queer woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women -- I consider myself to be a free-a** motherf**ker."

“I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you,” she explained about her recent album.
