The photoshoot which took place at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex at NASA, Janelle took futuristic fashion to another level as she posed in metallic and other out-of-this world fabrics. She stated that, she hopes that people will look at the characters she is playing as the new super heros! The editorial is super dope and really makes us feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
