We expected Janelle Monáe to make a grand entrance, and she didn't disappoint on the Oscars carpet. Her sheer black tulle Elie Saab was adorned with a profusion of feathers and beads and a skirt worthy of Queen Elizabeth a couple of centuries ago. She's also wearing a Jennifer Behr crown. Only Monáe could carry off all this.
But it echoes a similar, if not sleeker, Elie Saab that Halle Berry wore to the Oscars in 2002 when she won for lead actress for "Monster's Ball."
