Janelle Monáe may not have walked the runways of this season’s New York Fashion Week, but she definitely stole the show.
The “PYNK” singer was picked to be the sole entertainment at the Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2019 women’s collection this week, an event in which she sang classics to match the one-night-only jazz club that paid homage to 1920s and 1930s New York City.
Dressed in a a backless, tuxedo-inspired halter top, detached white wrist cuffs and a sheer plaid skirt, Monáe belted out classics like Irving Berlin’s “Let’s Face the Music and Dance,” Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon,” and Nat King Cole’s “Smile” as the models walked through the room.
At one point, Monáe even climbed on top of tables and crawled over the floor during her unforgettable performance.
