Leave it to Janelle Monae to make me not hate a jumpsuit.

This thing looks like the seat of a fabulous wicker patio chair, and yet she’s wearing it, and it works. This is serious alchemy at work. She turned furniture into a viable fashion statement. It’s magic.

As an aside, I wish “Janelle Monae” had a kicky “Carte Blanchett”-style wordplay that we could employ. My nearest attempt,”Monaegic” (Monae + magic), looks more like the name of an STD medication. And I tried for a pun on “The Midas Touch” but it sounded like the STD itself. I think I need to turn this loose to the brilliant commenters in Fug Nation: Be sharp where I am blunt like softened butter.
