Saturday, Janelle Monáe attended the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. rocking pin curls and a punked out leather jacket that said "Black Girl Magic" on the back. Those pin curls were on point! The singer also wore a long sleeve black shirt that said "The Last Poets," skirt, matching earrings, and a cute hot pink beret.

On Instagram, Monáe described her ensemble as the 'Afro punked out Dorothy Dandridge from the future.' The 30-year-old's look also gave me a Black Pantherish vibe. Her hair was done by stylist Nikki Nelms, who also did Solange's beaded braids that we saw last week.



Janelle Monáe's  jacket also contained the silhouette of a women's waist, behind, and legs. Some people on social media joked about the figure because they didn't understand the singer's purpose for having it on her jacket.

In January 2017, the movie called Hidden Figures starring Janelle Monáe, Taraji P. Henson, and Octavia Spencer will hit theaters. It is based on the real lives of three Black women who were mathematicians for NASA.

I know that it must've been a great feeling to be a part of the historical opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture! Janelle Monáe did her thing!
