The Fall 2016 Elie Saab dress Maeve Reilly plucked for client Janelle Monae embodied the futuristic vibe for which Monae is known.

A chic crown, Forever Mark diamonds and Brian Atwood heels completed the look.

A tulle train added a regal touch. She did that!

You can never go wrong with gold! Robin Roberts embodied elegance in a bejeweled sequined gown by Badgley Mischka.
