Yet another of the amazing stars of Hidden Figures, Monáe has always stuck up for positive body ideals. When the singer and actress was asked about her habit of dressing conservatively by Elle Canada back in 2013, she had a simple answer: "When I look at myself in the mirror, I'm attractive. I really have a nice body. And I had to pick: Do I want them to focus on my body? Do I want them to focus on how curvy and really, really gorgeous my figure is? Or do I want them to look at my music? What has more value? And I made that decision. I want them to focus on the message and the music because I feel like I have a higher calling." While we definitely think you should be able to show off your body and be taken seriously, we admire her desire to keep the focus on what really matters: her work.
