Janelle Monae Pharrell Williams

Insiders are buzzing about the gorgeous embellished outfit worn by pop singer Janelle Monáe to the Hidden Figures album listening party on Wednesday night in Atlanta.

Monáe and music producer Pharrell Williams attended the private VIP soundtrack album listening party and screening for her new movie, Hidden Figures.

The movie is a mostly fictional retelling about 3 mixed race female mathematicians who provided mathematical data and numbers crunching to help launch the U.S. space program.

In addition to producing the soundtrack, Williams also produced the movie, so don't expect much historical accuracy in the film.

Hidden Figures also stars Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, and Kevin Costner. The film has a release date of January 6, 2017.

Check back later for more photos from the Hidden Figures album listening party and movie screening.

  • Libra80sBaby

  • Renee26

    Swear! I have it on my firestick and we noticed how we rarely leave the house now....Damn Kodi!

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    And rebuke the spirit of self-hatred, because Sandra is truly self-loathing. If she loved herself and was happy with who she is, she wouldn't need to attack any and every Black person who is doing something impactful in life.

    The praise and adoration for celebrity baby's mothers and "Decatur flavors" while ripping people to shreds who are preserving our history is flat out disgraceful.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    She was born.

  • hotntot95

    She must have "mixed raced" interns running loose writing this crap...
    I can't believe how much she seems to hate her own race...

  • hi-liter

    The story is a TRUE story and only ONE of the women were of mixed heritage, the other two were black.

  • http://browngirltightcurl.blogspot.com nellboogie

    After reading this post, I am so very thankful my mother told me I was smart, special and beautiful...#blackmomsmatter The self-loathing has gone from a chuckle to silent and uncomfortable pity. It gives me the sads...:(

    I may check out the movie. I don't care for Pharrell he reminds me of Kanye for some reason. When Ms.Sandra says "mixed race" she is referring to the fact that the women whom the movie is about were light skinned women and in the movie they have dark skinned actresses playing them. I'm wide awake for the shade that Ms.Sandra is throwing this morning.

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    Chile Cheese...

    I am only inspired to research and learn more about MY African-American His-Story.

    And thank you.

    There is no such thing as MIXED raced.

  • Decked Out

    Where did you get they were MIXED RACED? Because of their complexion of their skin? This is humiliating coming from a woman of color.
