LUXE FOR LESS: Here’s Where You Can Get Janelle Monae’s Red Pleated Dress Without Paying Valentino Prices
We said it earlier this week, Janelle Monae had the best time at Paris Fashion Week. The singer, songwriter, actress triple threat was serving with look after look. We gushed over her beauty looks already; however, we are so here for this all red Valentino look that she sported from the Maison! It’s FW 2019, and fresh off the runway, so it’s not available yet; however, we’re showing you how to get the look for less.
A monochromatic look is very much on trend for the season and a simple ensemble can make a serious statement due to the all over hue. Red has always been a “stop and look at me” color so we love the boldness of Monae wearing it head to toe. You can get a similar dress (sans pussy bow) at ASOS. The ASOS Design pleated trapeze mini dress ($51.00, ASOS.com) has the same loose-fitting flair as Monae’s Paris look. What gave the look a full Parisian appeal was undoubtedly her red beret. Get a similar look by purchasing a red felt beret ($15.00, PrettyLittleThing.com).
Thigh high boots were trending for Fall/Winter 2018 and Monae brought the look into Spring by wearing red high knee socks ($6.50, Walmart.com) with Valentino shoes. You can get a red pump to pull off the look, try the Journee Collection Tru Pump ($39.99, DSW.com).
If you are a plus size woman, you can get the look as well! We’re loving this Pretty Little Thing deep plunge red pleated dress ($64.00, ASOS.com). While it doesn’t have the high neck and the pussy bow effect, this is a sexy dress with pleats that would transform Janelle Monae’s Paris Fashion Week look into a date night look. The dress goes up to a size 22 and has dolman sleeves, upping the elegance and flair. It has a mini length lining even though it’s midi length, adding to the sex appeal.
