See What Janelle Monáe, Cardi B, and More Celebs Wore to Celebrate Pride
In honor of Pride month and the space it creates to celebrate love, identity, and acceptance, we're looking at some of the best celebrity outfits from red carpet events, Instagram, and more.
The West Hollywood Pride parade on Sunday, June 12, was a wonderful reminder of Pride's emphasis on self-expression. Clothing is one of the most fun and creative outlets for showcasing that freedom, and these musicians, creators, models, influencers, and actors make for prime examples. While it can be easy for stars to cater solely to their fans or the public, these fashion-forward moments speak to embracing their individuality.
With Pride gatherings spanning through the entirety of June, it's important to remember that celebrating inclusiveness and the LGBTQIA+ culture and community goes way beyond just 30 days — and the style here can serve as inspiration year-round. From Janelle Monáe's custom checkered Sarah Sokol Millinery conductor hat and diamond nipple coverings to Cardi B's bedazzled rainbow-sequined jumpsuit, there's definitely no shortage of whimsical pieces to admire.
Scroll to see the celebrities who have stepped out in support of Pride, including Vanessa Hudgens — who wore a CD Greene rainbow disc-halter minidress at an MTV Awards press event — and Hayley Kiyoko, who wore a shimmering metallic R13 sports jacket onstage at the Proud & Loud concert at Royal Albert Hall in London.
