Janelle Monáe in Essence Magazine (November 2011) by Kwaku Alston

'Drawing her inspiration from Judy Garland (music), Fritz Lang (sci-fi), Marlene Dietrich (style) and Big Boi (swag), Monáe has perfected a look, sound and vibe that are uniquely her own- and she rocks them.

This spread is fantastic, the styling is spot on and the ArchOrchestra look amazing too.
