Alicia Keys also attended the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, held last night at the Staples Center in LA.

The singer, who performed her new song ‘Girl on Fire’, wore an Alexandre Vauthier gown. You may remember that she wore a dress by the same designer to the Grammys too.

On that occasion it was a hit; this time, not so much.

Her grey silk one-sleeve dress with a thigh-high slit wasn’t my favourite look at this event. The look would’ve been much improved had it been in a different material and sleeveless.

What could’ve been a dramatic BDOTW-worthy gown just falls flat. For someone who was voted Best Dressed by Vanity Fair, she let her voters downs.

Statement earrings, Gucci sandals and Loree Rodkin rings completed her look.

The only thing I like is her brunette bob.
