Janelle Monáe, Jennifer Hudson Shine at amfAR New York Gala

Janelle Monáe helped kick off New York Fashion Week at the amfAR New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday night. The “Tightrope” singer bared some skin in a black-and-white pantsuit, changing before performing for the VIP crowd, which included Cindy Crawford, Lindsay Lohan, and Heidi Klum. Jennifer Hudson wowed in a Roberto Cavalli gown and Theophilus London hit the stage at the black-tie benefit honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to the fight against AIDS.
