Variety’s Power Of Women: New York

Variety’s Power Of Women: New York event on Friday (April 13) had many influential women in attendance.

Padma Lakshmi: A beauty in red, the ‘Top Chef’ host put on a coordinated display from head to toe. Everything in her look was perfectly cohesive from the three-piece slim Styland suit to the sandals to her red lipstick. No statement jewellery was necessary as the fiery hue had such impact.

Alicia Keys: The singer experimented with silhouettes by teaming a Calvin Klein Spring 2018 dress with cropped pants and heeled mules. Had the trousers been full length, they would have had more of an elongating effect. I’m sure there will be others who will take issue with the statement tie belt.

Viola Davis: The actress wowed in pink at the 2018 Oscars, and she took the shade for a spin once again in a Pamella Roland dress. The pewter accessories and Toni & Chloe Goutal necklace bring a cool modernity to the feminine style.

11th Annual GRAMMY Week Event Honoring Alicia Keys (in Saint Laurent)

Alicia Keys was the women of the hour at the 11th Annual GRAMMY Week Event, which was held in her honor, at The Rainbow Room on Thursday (January 25) in New York City.

The singer mixed hard and soft elements with her Saint Laurent Fall 2017 ensemble.

There were juxtapositions in her embellished top and the pleated leather skirt themselves, but when they were combined together, the impact was even stronger.

The sharp shoulders strengthened the girlish nature of the pleated skirt, with the Alaïa ‘Bombe’ sandals heightening the dynamic mix.

The black colour palette ensured everything came together in an edgy, glamorous finish.

Christian Dior Fall 2017 Front Row

Paris Fashion Week is in full tilt, with the Christian Dior Fall 2017 presentation on Friday (March 3) one of the highly anticipated shows on the calendar. A flurry of Dior-dressed beauties were seated front and centre for the runway action.

Rihanna: Parisian chic with plenty of edge, Rihanna wore a Christian Dior Spring 2017 ensemble. The gracefully tailored coat-dress simply served as the canvas for the drama of her statement accessories that put the power into this look, beginning with the leather beret and J’ADIOR shades and ending with the patent cross-body bag and embellished suede boots.

Uma Thurman: Tailored sophistication was presented in this Dior Pre-Fall 2017 ensemble with the brush of the floral tulle skirt adding a softer femininity to the look.

Sienna Miller
: Also donning a Pre-Fall 2017 look, the actress managed the oversized layers and heady mix of floral motifs quite beautifully while maintaining her typically bohemian sensibility.

Alicia Keys In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – 2015 Met Gala

Alicia Keys In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture - 2015 Met Gala

Alicia Keys attended the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

The songstress wore a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2015 Couture confection marked by the contrast between a sharply tailored dark-blue blazer and cropped bra top and the frothiness of a sheer tulle, tiered princess skirt.

She kept the architectural topknot trend of the evening going strong with her sculpted version, finishing the look with sapphire statement jewels.

I’m puzzled as to the reason behind the dark leggings.

Did this look have enough Chinese influence for you, or were you completely missing the theme here?

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.

Alicia Keys In BCBG Max Azria – ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise Of Electro’ New York Premiere

Alicia Keys In BCBG Max Azria - ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Rise Of Electro’ New York Premiere

Alicia Keys attended ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Thursday (April 24) in New York City.

Dressed in all black, the sultry look took an edgy turn at the BCBG Max Azria grommet accented leather skirt and selection of Eva Fehren rings.

For her performance at the after-party she added a biker jacket to dial the rock-chick factor up one more notch.

Could this edgier turn have anything to do with the new mullet hairdo, I wonder?

You can buy Alicia’s BCBG Max Azria Pencil Grommet Leather Skirt from Bloomingdale’s.
