New York, 2022-05-03 08:27:18. Met Gala 2022: Janelle Mona looks futuristic
Janelle Mooney brought a little bit of the future to the Met Gala, as she wore a sparkling Ralph Lauren look.
The Grammy-nominated singer left her hats at home for a sparkly headpiece attached to a black-and-white gown.
“This is an amazing glimmer of the future,” Mona told The Associated Press. “I came here from the future.”
It’s no surprise that the singer’s songwriter brought their affinity for sci-fi at the Met Gala on Monday.
Mona, who recently said she is not binary, released a science fiction book called “The Memory Librarian: And Other Stories of Dirty Computer.” The book details Monae’s Afrofuturistic album “Dirty Computer” and shares tales with several other collaborators of how different threads of “perversion, race, gender pluralism, and love – with the future possibilities of memory and time in such a holistic landscape” – are intertwined.
“It supports LGBTQI plus communities through Afrofuturism,” Monae told Vogue on the carpet.
Asked how long it took for their looks to hold together, Mona raised two fingers: “Two minutes.”
As an artist, Mona said they loved being able to work with a team to create the glamorous look of the evening.
“I’m still an art school student,” Mooney told Vogue.
