Capes aren’t just for Count Dracula. Some of our favorite celebrities have been spotted crusading around town in the cute coat alternative. Last week, VV Brown wore hers superhero-style at the Black Girls Rock Awards. Lily Allen’s Louise Vuitton sweater/poncho looked chic teamed with black tights and a red handbag at London Fashion Week last month. Janelle Monáe’s cape-on-stage ritual — here she is at Keep A Child Alive’s annual gala on Sept. 30 — is an ode to one of her idols, James Brown, she says. Want a cape yourself? See below for some great cape ideas.
