It’s been one hell of an awards season for Janelle Monáe. Following her acting debut in not one but two Oscar-nominated films (Moonlight and Hidden Figures), she’s been hitting this year’s red carpets wearing a bunch of blockbuster looks — always in her signature black-and-white palette, of course.
While many of Monáe’s recent looks have consisted of expensive couture, like her puff-skirted Armani Privé from the Golden Globes and the floral Chanel she chose for the SAG Awards, one of her awards season sartorial standbys costs a whole lot less — especially since it’s now on sale.
While running to and from TV appearances and events this season, Monáe has often relied on one polka-dotted faux fur coat from Kate Spade New York, which recently got marked down from $848 to $594. Still pretty pricey, of course, but not at all unreasonable for a super-warm winter coat, especially one this cute.
You may not be able to buy this triple threat’s swagger and stunning beauty, after all, but you can snag her outerwear.
