June is Pride Month, which means that everyone who isn't a complete asshole has been breaking out their finest rainbow-hued garments to celebrate the LGBQT+ community all month long. While NYC threw its annual Pride Parade on Sunday, the best Pride look of the day — dare we say, the month? — happened on the West Coast, where Janelle Monáe was attending the 2018 BET Awards.

The star, who recently told Rolling Stone she identifies as queer, has always used fashion as a means of self-expression, and this look is definitely a perfect example of that. Monáe hit the red carpet in this frothy-yet-sexy Nicolas Jebran confection featuring a deep green, fitted bodice and a ruffled, rainbow-striped skirt. Never one to shy away from fun accessories, Monáe completed the look with a peaked hat and a rainbow-bedazzled bag shaped like an alien starship. 

Of course, Monáe wasn't the only star with killer style at Sunday's BET Awards, which celebrated the best of Black excellence. See more of the best dressed celebs at the 2018 BET Awards:
