Janelle Monáe won the Best Dressed celebrity award on day one at the 2019 Wimbledon Tennis Championships on Monday, July 01, in London, England. The 33-year-old singer was in attendance as 15-year-old Cori Gauff stunned veteran tennis player Venus Williams.

Janelle wore a smart-looking grey, red and white striped minidress which she topped off with a red beret cap, while her personal assistant Nathaniel Irvin dressed sharply in a grey men's tailored double breasted suit. Janelle and Nathaniel sat in the VIP box with Rebel Wilson, Lottie Tomlinson and more.

Janelle took to Twitter afterwards to say she "witnessed the future" after Cori defeated her idol Venus Williams who, at 39, is nearing retirement. The 9th grader won in straight sets 6-4, 6-4. "I want to be the greatest," Cori said after the match.

Cori set a record by becoming the youngest ever to qualify for the main draw at Wimbledon. She is the youngest ever finalist in the girls' singles event at the US Open and she was the second-youngest to win the U.S. Open Junior event in 2018.

    The Williams sisters need to retire and call it a day ?????

  • Coy little wink

    That bish is mad fly ?

  • tia

    I mean back in the day, Venus and Serena used to beat grown women too. They're just passing the torch and what wonderful person to do so with 'lil Coco.

    She resembles the sister's too.

    Congrats to this young lady!

  • Vonn

    I think they are going to try for the gold in doubles once more, next summer.

  • Dr. P

    Never gets it wrong!

  • Renee26

    Why??? They're still contenders in the game

  • Renee26

    her female assistant ?

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Janelle with those Ms Trunchball shoes on ? #matilda

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Everyone calls her Coco bc she is basically a female junior. Her dad is Corey Gauff and her head coach. I love her already and congrats to her!

    Janelle is so beautiful. SUCH AH FAN. Her and the assistant mane better DEW in them outfits.

  • Ebony Starr

    She trains with Serena' s coach, also.

  • joel adams

    I never cared for THAT lesbian
    Where queen Latifah at

  • TheWildChild

    Janelle's style has nothing on The Bobby DeBarge wig game. ?

  • Ebony Starr

    Osaka fired her coach, after winning back to back grand slams. She proclaimed that she'd rather be happy than successful. She hasn't won a match since.

  • Kimocha

    Congrats to Hot Coco!... Janelle looks cute, but are those high top penny loafers dude got on?

  • Kimberly King

    Maybe Venus but Serena still has a couple grand slam titles in her. Clearly you don't watch tennis.

  • Kimberly King

    I was proud of Coco. She looks like Venus to me lol

  • Tahj

    I think so too!!! LOVE IT

  • Lady_Elle

    Janelle Monae & Assistant look Fabulous! Love their looks! :-)

  • Sha

    Right, why did they put that thing on him?

  • Sha

    It's called fashion not foolish. Not everyone is fashion forward, high waters is what they called them back in the day.

  • Dollface

    Not personal assistant. But you're real hot at discovering why she is not gay and who she actually with.

  • TheWildChild

    He had a whole WTF wig for every scene. ? Ridiculous

  • Vonn

    They are still high waters & It's foolish, like I said. Enjoy your high waters.

  • Dollface

    I can assure you, she gives ZERO fucks about what you think of her.

  • Dollface

    OMG thank you for saying this. I've been trying to say it for years. FINALLY somebody that know what is really going the fuck on. They're like 12 years strong. She's playing the media like a fiddle with this gay shit.

  • What???

    Is that your headshot in your icon hoe?? You're looking better than ever. I'm glad they finally installed wifi at your zoo though.
    I couldn't care less what she thinks but you didn't say what I said wasn't true.

  • PYT

    Who on Earth is editing these posts? She's not wearing a beret.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Oh, be quiet. It's a beret cap if I say it is. ?

  • Dollface

    Well actually Janelle is SUPER TALENTED and probably could sing any of these heauxs under the table. Janelle actually has the voice of a angel that will raise any roof. Although I have seen many of her pre-famous performances, I most remember when she sung at her grandma's funeral. She had every member in the church weeping including all the ballers (as she has a family full of them.)

    As far as cornball. Um.. bitch how... she's rich! She starts trends not follows them. You and other's like you are too broke to keep up. You could never wear what she wear comfortable when you live in ghetto. So for you - she probably is corny. But as I said - she gives zero fucks so i digress.

  • 305MOM E

    Lol! I couldn't get over that pack and a half of 8 inch deep wave with a bang! Smh!

    I am kinda feeling that outfit!!

  • EMILY POST

    The socks messed up the outfit... should have been solid.

    Now how about that championship DNA. Daddy is football mother is track and gymnastics .. - equals sports champion...

    Coco Gauf is what’s next for Tennis.... I was shocked she was playing in Wimbledon so soon. She hasn’t even lost a set... was it a upset or did we expect this when she arrived.
    She winning on all courts in the juniors...

  • TheOwley

    Interesting outfit but it works for her. And Venus is still a legend in tennis but she needs to retire.

  • Queen B

    Lol i still love that movie

  • Queen B

    This is amazing for this young lady and she's repping Atl!!!

  • Leggs1018

    Always a pleasure to see the William’s sisters excel, but completely in awe of Cori and her exemplary performance! I’m genuinely proud to see such talented women Shine Bright Like Diamonds!!! ?????

  • dontgetblocked

    The Williams sisters are incredible, but they're pushing 40. New and hungry competitors are coming for them.

  • LetLoveReign

  • Kimberly King

    Sounds like your thirty ass is happy about that ! She's won 23 grand slams. #23 came in 2017 when she was pregnant with her daughter. I was there. So you're wrong. She doesn't "keep losing." Bum
