The “Dirty Computer” singer donned a sparkly custom Ralph Lauren gown that featured a draped hood reminiscent of iconic signature looks often worn by Jamaican model and singer Grace Jones.
Monáe complimented the show-stopping look with a matching choker and a red lip.
Monáe is slated to give a special performance during the awards show. The singer teased the performance earlier this week on Instagram, writing “LIIIIIVVVVVVE !!” adding a shout out to her hometown, “Kansas City Born and raised !!!”
Monáe notably portrayed Teresa in 2016′s “Moonlight,” which won Best Picture at the 2017 Oscars. The actor also appeared in last year’s “Harriet,” a film based on the heroic abolitionist Harriet Tubman.
