2014 DVF Awards

2014 DVF Awards

A host of stars joined Sarah Jessica Parker for the 2014 DVF Awards held at the United Nations on Friday (April 4) in New York City.

Alicia Keys: The singer wore a DVF Fall 2014 cosmic-blue long sleeve jumpsuit styled with black lace Louboutins and a Lorraine Schwartz yellow gold diamond link bracelet. I’m not always a fan of Alicia’s looks as they tend to be a tad unflattering, so I’m pleasantly surprised that I love this look on her.

Chanel Iman: Dressed in a white DVF Spring 2014 ‘Barcelona’ dress which featured a basket-weave pattern and horizontal ribbing, the model styled the look with chain accented sandals, smoky eyes and a hot-red pout.

Estelle: The British singer is my favourite here, donning a DVF eclectic-print maxi halter dress styled with a dark-green clutch and statement jewels which perhaps she overloaded on.

Unite4 humanity Red Carpet Roundup

Alicia Keys: The songstress struck a pose wearing a Fleur du Mal bustier top and super wide-legged Proenza Schouler Spring 2014 pants. Accessories included Walter Steiger heels and a metallic clutch by Tom Ford. Sultry cat-eyes and the red pout completed her look.

Demi Lovato: The singer, who was presented with the Young Visionary Award, opted for an edgy black leather Jitrois frock featuring artful cut-outs at the neckline. Black Saint Laurent ‘Janis’ platform pumps and silver Demarco earrings accessorized her look. A maroon-hued updo and XIV Karats bracelets provided the finishing touches.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The actress looked lovely wearing a black-and-white printed David Meister sheath dress with red grosgrain belt styled with red hot Casadei pumps, Irene Neuwirth earrings and a Jacob & Co. ring.

Only Julia’s typical lady-like look works for me. I am not a fan of the other two.

Alicia Keys In Armani Privé - 2014 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys was also at the 2014 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday night (January 26).

The songstress wore a custom Armani Privé silk-jersey column gown in an incredible shade of indigo blue.

Contributing a touch of sparkle to the form-fitting dress, which glided over her curves, was a black beaded, bow-accented belt, embellished in Swarovski crystals.

While some of you may be put off my the extreme, gaping plunge neckline, I was almost so distracted by the intensely beautiful, cobalt colour of the dress to even give it a second thought.

She topped off the look with some mandatory Grammys edge via a sky-high quiff, whilst keeping her makeup on more minimal territory.

Alicia Keys In Toni Maticevski & Manning Cartell - ARIA Awards 2013

Alicia Keys wore two more looks on stage while presenting and performing at the 27th Annual ARIA Awards 2013 held at the Star in Sydney, Australia on Sunday; both were by Australian designers.

Presenting: Her second look was a black Toni Maticevski dress with a black structural detail at the hip, which she paired with black Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and drop earrings. Open-toe shoes and a shorter skirt would have improved this look for me.

Performance: Alicia’s third look of the evening was a Manning Cartell printed ensemble which consisted of a crop top and a high-waist pencil skirt accented with silver zippers. An on-trend ear cuff courtesy of Ryan Storer and the same black pumps completed this look.

Which look do you favour? The red carpet, presenting or performing?

Sadly, the styling let down all three looks for me.

Alicia Keys In Stella McCartney - ARIA Awards 2013

Alicia Keys attended the 27th Annual ARIA Awards 2013 held at the Star in Sydney, Australia on Sunday evening.

The singer, who presented the Best Female Artist award at the event to Jessica Mauboy, wore a Stella McCartney racerback vivid-yellow gown accented with a wide gold belt for the occasion.

I’m sure many of you are feeling somewhat fatigued by this gown – considering we first saw this dress on Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2012 Grammy Awards, a version of this gown was the most-worn dress of 2012, and Michelle Dockery wore the black version of this gown just last week – but this bold hue revitalizes the look for me.

I love the clean lines and figure-hugging silhouette, the flaw-free makeup and the sexy quiffed ‘do; however, I’m trying not to be annoyed by the needless necklace.

You can buy a Alicia’s Stella McCartney Gown from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
