Alicia Keys, Madonna & Joan Smalls In Givenchy – 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Alicia Keys, Madonna & Joan Smalls In Givenchy - 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

The Keep A Child Alive Annual Black Ball held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday (October 30) in New York City turned out to be something of a Givenchy-fest.

Alicia Keys: The pregnant host, who looks ready to pop any day soon, looked divine wearing a sumptuous black satin off-the-shoulder empire-waist Givenchy Couture gown with shimmering silver straps custom made by Riccardo Tisci, who was also in attendance at this charitable event. Matching silver and onyx drop earrings and silver bracelets accessorized her look, with a pop of pink to the lips providing the finishing touch.

Madonna: The queen of pop was in the house, donning a corseted black frock with a delicate black lace skirt from Givenchy’s Spring 2015 collection styled with her signature crucifix, lace gloves, and leather boots which it took three people to help her get into.

Joan Smalls: While brown might not be our favourite red carpet colour, who can argue that Joan Smalls doesn’t look stunning in her Givenchy Spring 2015 keyhole gown with a smattering of shimmering embellishments? Factor in that dark-berry lip and you have me at her feet saying “We are not worthy”. What a goddess.

    Joan is flawless. Brown is a hard colour to pull off, especially for a gown – but she looks incredible.

    Madonna’s nipples showing through the lace corset top? I just can’t. Cannot. #needstogo

    Alicia looks glowing and radiant and exactly glamourous and elegant enough to suit the event.

    Joan is literally breathtaking to behold. She is so incredibly beautiful and one of the few people who can really work that dark berry lip.

    Joan looks good and so covered up by her standards.

    Madonna got the wrong invite….the Halloween Party was next door!

    Joan Smalls for sure

    Givenchy is so hit or miss these days. Joan and Alicia look great but Madonna looks terrible.

    Joan looks stunning despite the dress’ colour, Alicia is very pretty but I feel the look has many reserves, and all Madonna is missing is a broom and a pointy hat to play a lead in a Hocus Pocus remake.

    Alicia looks gorgeous. It’s a beautiful maternity gown. And I’m loving Joan’s look from h2t.

    alicia’;s dress looks like it going to fall down any minute, Madonna looks like a whorehouse madam but Joan Smalls looks divine. I can’t believe Riccardo designed something lovely.

    Joan is so stunning!

    It would be nice if Madonna would move on.

    • Catherine Kallon October 31, 2014 at 13:44 #

      I predict that will never happen

        LOL I am sure you are right!
