Screw symmetrical spectacles! That’s BORING. Especially when you can rock crazy, cool glasses like Janelle Monáe. The 24-year-old singer-songwriter performed at the Hoxton Bar in London last night in these space-age-style black-and-white frames by the French designer eyewear brand Alain Mikli (the same company that created the world-famous and massively-imitated Shutter Shades made popular by Kanye West). Unsurprisingly, though, Janelle’s specs are off-the-charts expensive — they cost $545 for one pair. But if you’re really feeling bold, you can snag cheaper asymmetrical frames on BlueDame.com for $18.80.
