Janelle Monae brought futuristic style to the 2022 Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story.” The film, a sequel to the 2019 mystery film “Knives Out,” stars Monae, Daniel Craig, Kate Hudson, Madelyn Cline and Kathryn Hahn, and arrives to Netflix on December 23.
Arriving at the film’s premiere, Monae posed on the red carpet in a sweeping gown by Iris Van Herpen. Her Cosmogonic Myth style, hailing from Herpen’s Fall 2022 couture collection, featured a transparent sculpted bodice mimicking a spiked spine that encircled her neck. The 3D-printed piece was draped with cream banana leaf fabric to create an asymmetric train, thigh-high slit and numerous cutouts. Completing Monae’s Alexandra Mandelkorn-styled ensemble were spike-covered stud earrings and sculpted rings.
When it came to footwear, Monae allowed her dress to make the greatest statement by opting for a simple set of sandals. Her metallic gold style featured thin front, ankle and slingback straps for a minimalist silhouette. Stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height completed the pair, providing a clean base for the “Dirty Computer” musician’s outfit.
