We're used to DJs spinning beats at Lincoln Center shows throughout New York Fashion Week, but it's rare to bop to live tunes while models walk down the runway. Enter Janelle Monae, who will be performing at Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2014 show today at 3 p.m. EST. Monae's stylings are a part of "American Express Unstaged," a new initiative that allows for artists' work to be available to the masses via digital media. You can follow along with Minkoff and Monae this afternoon as they share their last-minute, behind-the-scenes preparations on Instagram, and watch the live-stream on rebeccaminkoff.com. Monae's new album, "The Electric Lady," hits iTunes on Sept. 10.
