Janelle Monae wearing black and white is nothing new but when she mixes prints and wears a skirt, you must take notice. The songstress hit the red carpet at the Black Girls Rock Awards taping on Saturday wearing a black and white stripe skirt and a black crop top with white lines along the collar and sleeves. She finished her look with cage sandals, a studded clutch, red lipstick and a curly updo.
