Despite this year's awards ceremonies being attended virtually, the season has followed tradition, with celebrities dressing up in typical designer outfits and eye-catching hair and makeup looks.

For this year's NAACP Images Awards ceremony, musician and actress Janelle Monáe pulled out all the stops in a stunning black and white Christian Siriano gown sure to grab everyone's attention.

Monáe shared three snapshots of herself in the beautiful gown. In each photo, taken outdoors, she looked like a brilliant statue with her perfect posture and glamourous poses. She captioned:

"Tonight we glisten."

Indeed Monáe looked like a star in the gorgeous one-shoulder dress, which had a strategic cutout design around the abdomen, separating the black top half from the white bottom of the dress, flowing down to the floor.

In addition to the dress, the "Hidden Figures" actress rocked a curly blonde pixie which complimented her fiery red lipstick and glowing makeup done by makeup artist Emily Cheng.

Monáe completed her look with a fine choice of accessories fit for a star. On her neck, she wore a bold gold-ringed necklace to match her selection of gold bangles and statement rings. By all definitions, she was glistening, and her fans agreed.

One person reassured her by writing, "You always Glisten," while fellow actress commented, "a literal VISION. A third fan wrote, "We should call you The Elegant Lady from now on."

This stunning awards outfit will go down in the record along with the many daring looks that Monáe has rocked on the red carpet. The "Moonlight" star has never been afraid to experiment with fashion, be it her hair, makeup, or wardrobe choice.

However, it is Monáe's fearless personality that often makes headlines. Outspoken and passionate, the "Django Jane" hitmaker is always deliberate and mission-oriented when it comes to expressing her views on sexuality, politics, and race.

Monáe, who released her last album, "Dirty Computer" in 2018, was so fired up about racial injustice that she wrote a powerful song for the Amazon Studios documentary, "All In: The Fight for Democracy."

Monáe told Variety that the track, titled "Turntables," was inspired by her motivation to tell the truth about racial marginalization, which she and her family have all too often been subjected to.
