Monae will sing at Friday's show at Lincoln Center as part of "American Express Unstaged," a program that pairs artists of different mediums and makes their collaborations available to the public through digital media, including a live stream of the catwalk.
Minkoff and Monae will share behind-the-scenes preparations on Instagram, and during the show, viewers at home can get an insider perspective with a backstage camera and live photo feed.
Monae, herself a CoverGirl model, has a new album called "The Electric Lady" that will be released Sept. 10. Minkoff will be showing her collection for next spring.
The live stream will be at 2 p.m. Friday.
