Guys, I don't even know where to begin.

I found myself situated directly up against the stage at Ralph Lauren's VIP Fashion's Night Out event, completely-360-degrees surrounded by people I deeply admire.

To my left was André Leon Talley, Contributing Editor at Vogue and judge on ANTM. Nearly fainted shaking his hand. He said my hair was "quite adorable".
To my far left was Jessica Alba in an utterly fabulous silver dress, basking in the light from the other photographers' flash bulbs

And, of course, in front of me (with unbelievable energy and ridiculous amounts of talent) was Janelle Monáe. This woman. This artist. I can't begin. I've been an avid listener of her music for about a year and a half now and I can say with great confidence that she is bar-none the greatest performer I have ever seen live. Boom. I'm serious.

I sang, I drank some champagne, I took photos, I was in heaven. The place was packed but it was still fun.

I will say though, and I'm sure anyone else who was at FNO in SoHo will agree with me, IT WAS ABSOLUTE MADNESS beyond the front doors of the store. Countless women were teetering around, slightly over-dressed (in a fabulous way of course), clogging the sidewalks as eager shoppers window shopped and browsed around.

It was a night to remember. I've been drowning myself in Janelle's music ever since.


I ALREADY HAVE COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF FASHION WEEK STUFF TO POST, GUYS!! I'M SO EXCITED TO SHOW YOU!!!

  2. Partly thanks to your posts I've been re-obsessed with Janelle Monae.. that and she's coming to my university soon... but I'm not going, yikes.

    And may I say, her outfit is freaking fabulous.

  13. Love it! Everything looks amazing, but I want you to know that Andre is NOT a judge on ANTM. That's Ms. Jay that you're thinking of. Honest mistake, but I wanted to let you know!
