Alicia Keys In Azzedine Alaia – 2012 Billboard Music Awards

Alicia Keys looked very elegant as she made her way down the red carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards yesterday evening.

Showing off her gorgeous body, she donned a figure-hugging Azzedine Alaia Couture gown.

Her long-sleeve patterned dark-berry gown was accessorized with a selection of Repossi rose-gold hooped earrings and Jennifer Fisher rings.

I love the braided updo and the candy-pink lip colour.

This look might not have been weather appropriate, but since Alicia is so hit-and-miss on the red carpet, I have to simply appreciate this hit.

Alicia Keys In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2012 Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys was the third celebrity, following Fergie and Katy Perry, to wear a Spring 2012 Couture look straight off the runway to the 2012 Grammy Awards this evening.

The singer donned an Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture fitted LBD with padded shoulders.

Her look was teamed with a bold statement choker and Christian Louboutin ‘Bis Un Bout’ pumps with PVC trims, which were presented during the Alexandre Vauthier show.

That ankle strap isn’t doing her any favours and they are making her legs appear really short.

A rockabilly hairstyle completed her look.

Alicia Keys In Dolce & Gabbana – 2012 Producers Guild Awards

It seems like everyone was wearing black on the red carpet at the 2012 Producers Guild Awards in which took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in LA this weekend.

Alicia Keys, who we’re more used to seeing at music events, wore chic yet sassy Dolce & Gabbana ensemble which included a black satin bustier with a lace skirt and a tuxedo jacket with satin lapels.

She continued the all black theme with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch and matching peep-toes.

I love this look on Alicia, especially the smoothed out locks.

A heart pendent necklace and studded earrings completed her look.

Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys For Glamour US October 2011

Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys share the cover of Glamour US October 2011 which was shot by Alexei Hay.

The stars opened up about the crucial women’s health crusade that brought them together – they directed a series of short films for Lifetime entitled ‘Five’, about women and breast cancer that show how breast cancer affects women’s lives, families and friendships – the 3 beautiful stars also dish about husbands, boyfriends, and babies.

Glamour’s October issue is available on the iPad today, and on newsstands nationwide September 6.

You can read the full story on glamour.com.

Here are some extracts from Jennifer, Demi and Alicia.

Jennifer on wanting to bring the Five project to life: “We were intrigued by the challenge of creating short stories that would defy audiences’ expectation of the subject. We wanted to balance the drama with humor and irreverence because that’s what’s helped our friends who’ve faced this get through their treatment. We wanted stories that were informative without being heavy-handed. Oh, and they needed to be brilliantly written. Other than that, our goals were small. [Laughs.]”

Jennifer on putting her feet and handprints on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: “It was a milestone in my career, which was surreal because I still think I’m at the beginning of it. I remember when they told me about the honor, I thought, Really? I’ve never lost that feeling of ‘oh God, I hope I get this job!’ I don’t want to get too used to any of this because then entitlement sets in, and that’s the kiss of death.”Read More…

2011 BET Awards Red Carpet

The 2011 BET Awards was held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday.

Kerry Washington: The actress wore an acid green Michael Kors column gown. I love the colour which is perfect for this red carpet on a sunny day. With that in mind I have to ask, “why black pumps?” Gold strappy sandals would’ve worked so much better to complement her Kotur clutch, belt, gold Lana jewelry and the halter ring detail. I will never understand her decision to opt for black pumps on this occasion.

Keri Hilson: Whilst Kerry opted for a summery look, Keri’s had a Fall feel to it. The singer wore a bicolour Tibi purple and black strapless jumpsuit with black open-toe sandals. She accessorized with gold sculptural Ann Taylor cuffs, a Judith Leiber ‘Ridged Rectangle’ leopard printed haircalf minaudière, a Carla Amorim ring and a gold necklace with a green pendant.

Alicia Keys: The singer opted for zebra print Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps to match her monochromatic Dolce & Gabbana look. Wilfredo Rosado fine jewelry and a fishtail plait completed her look.

Keke Palmer: I’m not quite sure how Mandalay continues to get away with ripping off other designers. Keke’s silver paneled dress is a total rip off from a Balmain Fall 2009 dress.

Kelly Rowland: The UK X Factor judge opted for a Notte by Marchesa fuchsia dress with a cascading ruffle detail which we’ve seen a few times on the red carpet. Her beautiful dress was paired with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Bisson’ heels.

Nicki Minaj: Of all looks at this event, Nicki was the one that made me itch the most. The singer wore a Mark Fast knit dress, with thick tights and black booties in that searing heat?

Alicia Keys In Givenchy Couture – 2011 Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Alicia Keys attended the 2011 Keep A Child Alive Black Ball in London last night. The event raises money to provide treatment and support to families with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.

The singer wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci custom-made long bustier black gown.

The gown was embroidered with black ostrich feathers on the skirt and accented with a gold metal articulated belt.

She added Givenchy accessories including suede leather sandals and black satin clutch, plus Chaumet jewels to her look.

Her dramatic dress is perfect for this ball, but I find the nude back panel and the cascading ruffle detail distracting.

Alicia also performed at this event with Tinie Tempah wearing another Givenchy look.

Her short zipped black lace and silk dress was worn with black bondage leather sandals and Chaumet jewels.
