Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Alicia Keys shows off her post baby figure for the first time on the red carpet this week when she attended the Biutiful New York Premiere.

The new mum sported the same faux-hawk hairstyle we saw her rockin’ during her Vogue Italia shoot.

Her LBD was from Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2010 collection, but it hard to tell by the way Alicia destroys this dress.

Firstly did she even run an iron over this dress before she decided to wear it?

Secondly the dress needed the grosgrain waistband because the dress loses about 80% of its charm without it.

This would’ve also helped the fold detail on the front of her dress stay in place.

In short this is a total mess head-to-toe.

Alicia only had her baby 6 weeks ago, so I’m sure she has other priorities on her mind.

Alicia Keys looked stunning in an editorial for Vogue Italia November 2010.

The singer, who just gave birth to her first son Egypt, rocks in a mohawk for some shots and a sleek ‘do for others.

In her editorial shot by Michelangelo di Battista she wears Blumarine, Balmain, Giorgio Armani, John Galliano, YSL and Miu Miu as she shows us that the good girl of R&B has gone bad.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On posing for this shoot whilst pregnant: “I like to transform myself like a chameleon. The photos showing me pregnant seemed brave and strong to me, just how I feel at this time”. Read more…

Last night Alicia Keys hosted the “Keep A Child Alive Black Ball” in London.

The annual event helps raise money to provide care and support to orphans, and those affected by AIDS in Africa and India.

Alicia used the event to announce that not only is she engaged to music producer boyfriend, Swizz Beats but she’s also pregnant.

Maybe that is why she wore a one of a kind Dolce & Gabbana strapless ruffled cocktail dress with crystal detailing.

That’s one way to hide a baby bump.

The dress is very frou frou, but that was obviously the intention.

Whilst the dress is cute, her Louboutin’s are fierce.

I’m surprised Rihanna hasn’t worn them already, as they are very much her style.

Congratulations to the happy couple.

Giorgio Armani and Alicia Keys have had a close working relationship for many years.

Their first big project was the 2006 Grammys when the designer custom a plunging black gown for the singer.

It was announced today that Giorgio Armani designed many tour outfits for the European leg of Alicia’s ‘Element of Freedom’ tour.

The legendary designer created a custom-made wardrobe for the ‘Empire State Of Mind’ singer include a military leather jacket with crocodile print detailing, a little black dress with a cascade ruffle, a one-shoulder top with embroidery detail worn with leggings and leather boots and finally my favourite a one-shoulder silk chiffon gown in dark grey with intricate beading.

All the outfits are decorated with Swarovski crystals, sequins and beading.

Actress Blake Lively was one of the many guests at the HBO Post Emmy Awards party which was held in LA back in September.

Sporting a messy plait, Blake wore a sexy plunging Balmain paillette mini dress paired with black Jimmy Choo “Private” heels.

Alicia Keys wore the same dress last night when she performed with Jay-Z at the Brits Awards held in London.

Sporting a mop of tight curls, the beautiful singer paired her dress with black peep-toe booties.

Both looked great showing off their stunning figures and toned legs, so the only thing that can separate them is their hairstyles.

Blake’s Wang-inspired plait was a bit messy, so I give this win to Alicia.

“The Element of Freedom” Album Launch Party, London

Alicia Keys was recently in London to promote her new album “The Element of Freedom”.

The superstar singer was wearing a white and blue vibrant paint print Alexander McQueen v neckline dress with batwing sleeves which she belted.

Her look was paired with blue tights, and Giuseppe Zanotti electric blue ankle boots.

I would never belt a dress with batwing sleeves as they are hard enough to manoeuvre in, but it seems to work here for Alicia.

“A Little Night Music” Broadway Opening Night, New York

In an age when we see so many ankle boots on the red carpet, it’s nice to get warm and fuzzy feeling from Catherine Zeta Jones on the red carpet.

She gives us old fashion glamour which made me fall in love with stars on the red carpet in the first place.

On her opening night on Broadway, the Welsh beauty looked so very elegant wearing a Gustavo Cadile black gown, with tiered skirt trimmed with sequins and a rosette detail on the hip.

The gown appears to be slightly modified from the baby blue Resort 2010 gown presented on the runway.

Z100s Jingle Ball 2009, New York

I hate to say this, but I’m really tiring of Leighton Meester’s ‘edgy’ look.

It was cute at first, but now it feels so forced.

The actress and wannabee singer opted for this cold-shoulder Louise Goldin leather and mesh sleeved dress paired with Proenza Schouler patent leather pumps.

To say me no likey is putting it very mildly.

House of Harlow 1960 Holiday Collection Launch, LA

The woman best known for her boho chic style gives something new.

Firstly she looks stunning with a chestnut new hair colour, then she shows off her post-baby figure wearing a L’Wren Scott fitted ivory dress which has been worn by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman (of course).

LOVE the fact she didn’t wear black pumps, instead she opted for Christian Louboutin snake-skin heels.

Louis Vuitton and Teen Vogue Holiday celebration, LA

Alexa Chung’s MTV show might have been cancelled, but that didn’t stop the Brit putting on a stiff upper lip and partying with the kids at the Teen Vogue Holiday party.

She carried a SC bag from the Sofia Copolla’s Louis Vuitton collection, whilst wearing a Louis Vuitton Resort 2010 print skirt.

I adore this print which has been worn by January Jones and Rachel Weisz on the January 2010 Vogue UK cover.

Emma Roberts opted for a sheer nude top, black pants and black LV Can can heels.

Samual French Bookstore, LA

After a rare occasion in which Dita von Teese had a bad day on the red carpet, the Burlesque star is back to her best.

This weekend she redeemed herself wearing a navy Lanvin Fall 2009 coat/dress worn with a belt, boots and an exquisite fascinator hat.

Tres chic.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Even in a simple black Jasmine di Milo black cashmere coat Kate Hudson is still uber sexy.

Showing off her pins the “Nine” actress is wearing the Brian Atwood Wagner rivet suede pumps which are on my wish list.

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel And Casino, LA

Kim Kardashian accessorized her ALC double zipper draped dress, with a stunning neck piece, and Pierre Hardy Saba sandals.
