Janelle Monáe has boldly worn black and white for the past seven years! She is an inspiration! I've included her speech from the 2012 Black Girls Rock Awards where she talks about the reasons behind why she wears a uniform. Before Janelle got her big break she was a maid - her family also worked jobs that require uniforms and so she wears her uniform to honor them. She gives some great words of wisdom for women - especially for us all starting a new week and Monday!
"I have work to do, I have people to uplift, I have people to inspire and today I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I didn't have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl."
"Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable. I believe it's our uniqueness and our unique ideas that make us rock!"
I searched through Hollywoodlife.com and found that many celebs wear black and white on the red carpet as well. There are some fantastic looks! See a few more videos below: one of Janelle talking about her love for black and white and another from Fabsugar.com that features a few tips on how to make it work with your wardrobe!
