We’ve seen Janelle Monae in a variety of looks but her recent shoot for the May issue of Essence– photographed by Kwaku Alston– is probably the most stunning.

The celebrity photographer released more photos from second shoot. Shot in an unfinished, futuristic Frank Lloyd Wright structure that overlooks the hills of Malibu, the singers shines in the natural elements of the space. Alston goes into detail about the experience and working with the creative team at the women’s magazine.
