Celebrities wearing white suits are still a thing. Zoe Saldana and Janelle Monae give life to the seasons old trend.


Female celebrities wearing white suits on the red carpet became a big trend a few seasons ago, with the likes of Rihanna, Eva Marcille, and Camilla Belle all taking part. The all white suited look is proving to be an enduring style choice though, as it’s popped up again, this time on Zoe Saldana and Janelle Monae.


Zoe, who’s in the midst of a worldwide press tour for the release of her new film Star Trek into Darkness, continued to pull out all the style stops at the movie’s Mexico City premiere.

She donned an all-white ensemble from the Elie Saab Fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection that featured a sheer topped, trouser leg jumpsuit, under which Zoe added a lacy white bra.

It’s a simple look that creates quite the dramatic statement, one that’s further accented by Zoe’s red lip, and matching red nails.


Singer Janelle Monae is known for her signature suit and tuxedo looks, but when she visited BET’s 106 & Park to debut the video for her latest single Queen, Janelle switched it up a bit from her typical mostly black ensembles, and opted for a cream suit featuring black accents from high street retailer Topshop.

Janelle’s Grossgrain Collar Blazer ($200) and matching Grossgrain Wide-leg Trousers ($100) combine for a timeless look that’s elevated by Janelle’s clean makeup and relatively simple styling.

Menswear inspired clothing has always been, and will continue to be a womenswear fashion standard, and by going all-white with those looks, an additional layer of subtle femininity is quickly and effectivly added.
