Who Wore Michael Kors Better…Myleene Klass or Alicia Keys?

Who Wore Michael Kors Better Myleene Klass or Alicia Keys

Back in January, Alicia Keys took to the red carpet at the NRJ Music Awards wearing a Michael Kors Spring 2013 black cut-out gown, which she styled with a Vhernier black-and-white statement necklace and a chic updo.

Four months later, British TV presenter Myleene Klass wore the same gown to The Laurence Olivier Awards, opting to go sans jewels, with her hair pulled back into a tight bun.

Myleene wins for me. Firstly, I prefer the length of her dress; she’s hemmed it to just hit the floor rather than sit in a puddle like Alicia’s. Secondly, the decision to keep the look trinket free was the right one.

Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.

Alicia Keys In Hervé Léger By Max Azria – NBA All-Star Game 2013

Alicia Keys In Hervé Léger By Max Azria - NBA All-Star Game 2013

Alicia Keys pumped her fist in the air and waved it around like she just didn’t care while performing during half time at the 2013 NBA All-Star game at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, which was attended by Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z.

The singer ripped a look off the runway, wearing a Herve Leger Fall 2013 look which had been presented during New York Fashion Week that same week.

Shunning the baseball cap, she showed off her abs, once again, wearing an embellished long-sleeved crop top with slouchy leather pants which I adore and must own.

I love the urban sex appeal of this look, especially when styled with Reebok classic AKW sneakers.

Pumps just wouldn’t cut it with this look.

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia – 2013 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia - 2013 Grammy Awards

Fresh off her performance at Super Bowl XLVII, Alicia Keys walked the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards where the singer was nominated for the producer of the year award.

With just a week post-Super Bowl, the singer chose to sport another body-con Azzedine Alaia design to the music awards.

The black formfitting dress hugged the singer’s curves in all the right places thanks to a fishtail silhouette. As if the snug fit wasn’t sexy enough, a midriff-baring crisscross bodice in a dramatic crocodile embossing amped up the sex appeal.

To complete the look, the singer styled her gown with matching black and white, snake-detailed earrings and a cocktail ring. A deep red lip and manicure topped off her glamorous style.

Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia - Super Bowl XLVII

Ahead of the Super Bowl XLVII game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, Alicia Keys got the party started at the Superdome New Orleans, Louisana yesterday evening.

The singer gave an amazing rendition of the national anthem while giving us a glamorous look which was red carpet ready.

Alicia wore a scarlet-hued body-con Alaïa gown with a fishtail hemline, which she adorned with a gold Marina B choker.

Smoky eyes, nude lips and a slicked-back hairdo provided the finishing touches to her sultry performance look.

Alicia Keys In Michael Kors – 2013 NRJ Music Awards

Alicia Keys In Michael Kors - 2013 NRJ Music Awards

Alicia Keys attended the 2013 NRJ Music Awards, held at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France yesterday evening.

The R&B singer wore a Michael Kors Spring 2013 gown which features the same sexy cut-out details we saw on Kristen Wiigs’ Golden Globes gown two weeks ago.

Alicia styled her look with a Vhernier black-and-white statement necklace, which doesn’t add anything to the look.

I believe this dress was designed to be minimalist not overwhelmed with trinkets.

A curly updo and a red manicure completed the look.

Alicia Keys In Michael Kors – Commander-In-Chief’s Inaugural Ball

Alicia Keys In Michael Kors -  Inaugural Ball

Alicia Keys hit the stage for her performance at the inauguration ball in Washington, D.C. on Monday night setting the stage alight.

The singing superstar changed the lyrics to her hit single, ‘Girl On Fire’ in tribute to President Obama, proclaim that he was on fire.

Alicia wore a gorgeous red Michael Kors Fall 2012 gown.

Her long-sleeve crystal-embellished gown with an open back and knotted waist was styled with silver jewels.

This is a third time out for this gorgeous gown as it has also been worn by Natasha Yarovenko and Kim Hyo Jin.

Alicia Keys In CD Greene – BET Honors 2013

Alicia Keys in CD Greene - BET Honors 2013

Singer Alicia Keys, the ‘Girl on Fire,’ shined on the red carpet at the 2013 BET Honors at the Warner Theatre in Washington DC yesterday.

She wore a bold black CD Greene floor-length dress with a cutout shoulder and leather accents.

This dress is simple yet statement-making. The asymmetrical shape of the top is right on trend and adds some interest to the simple black piece.

She accessorized with basic gold hoop earrings and barely noticeable black heels. I think this look would have stood out and looked more polished with bolder jewels and a bright clutch.

Her slicked-back bun, a cat eye and red lips looked great and finished off her look nicely.

Alicia Keys In Marc Jacobs – Late Night With David Letterman

Alicia Keys made a guest appearance on Late Night With David Letterman on Tuesday night where she talked to the host about her family and Christmas.

The singer then went on to set the Ed Sullivan Theater stage ‘On Fire’ with a soul-baring performance of her hit song on Tuesday night which brought the 2012 season of ‘Live On Letterman’ to a conclusion.

She opened the show with ‘New Day’, before going on to perform a reggae mash-up of her new track ‘Limitedless’, ‘You Don’t Know My Name’, her current track ‘ Girl On Fire’ and the epic ‘Empire State of Mind’, much to the crowd’s delight.

Alicia’s voice wasn’t the only thing to stand out.

The singer was dressed in a bright-yellow Marc Jacobs Resort 2013 ensemble with blue sequin stripes on both the crew-neck sweater and knit pencil skirt.

Vanity Fair’s best-dressed woman of the year followed the number one rule of wearing a crop top by wearing a high-waisted skirt to cover her stomach.

The look was completed with gold pointy pumps.
