Alicia Keys In Alexandre Vauthier – 2012 MTV Video Music Awards

Alicia Keys also attended the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, held last night at the Staples Center in LA.

The singer, who performed her new song ‘Girl on Fire’, wore an Alexandre Vauthier gown. You may remember that she wore a dress by the same designer to the Grammys too.

On that occasion it was a hit; this time, not so much.

Her grey silk one-sleeve dress with a thigh-high slit wasn’t my favourite look at this event. The look would’ve been much improved had it been in a different material and sleeveless.

What could’ve been a dramatic BDOTW-worthy gown just falls flat. For someone who was voted Best Dressed by Vanity Fair, she let her voters downs.

Statement earrings, Gucci sandals and Loree Rodkin rings completed her look.

The only thing I like is her brunette bob.

    Hate the bulky dress, which look like an unholy marriage between the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz and Angelina Jolie…hate the asymmetrical, harsh hairstyle…really, this whole look is bad!

    If she’s one of the best dressed person of the world I’m one of the richest… Most of the times she’s dressed not according to her body shape, and the styling is often ugly. The dress itself is quite ugly so no wonder she chose it.

    It’s disturbing. I wonder if it is meant to be that see through

    Worst dressed woman in show biz. Awful from head to toe.

    She looks beautiful though! The short bob makes her look edgy. Anw, can you feature Katy’s second dress for the event? I saw it on TV and it was beautiful

    Sorry to begin with this, but that pose is just awkward and it bothers me too much, that I can’t concentrate on her look, but I think I only like her bob as well.

    Her stance is a little funky too. Looks like she’s doing an impression on angelina jolie’s leg.
