Grammy-nominated singer Janelle Monáe has a voice so powerful, and a style like no other. Sporting colours of black and white, the 24 year old singer captures a timeless look that is both transcending and classic.

Her trademark monochrome brogues are incredible and reflect originality and elegance- allowing her to stand out amongst any crowd. Janelle’s love for black and white started as a young teenager, “As I’ve grown up, I started to extract myself from colour. Black and white always makes me feel calm, and I feel more in control” and she describes her style as timeless and simple.

Her crisp and charming looks are the perfect source of inspiration this Autumn/Winter 2011, from her scenic crisp blazers, to her tailored tapered pants- a must have in every woman’s wardrobe!
