Usually when I do these Style Crush posts, it’s a matter of finding the same performer in a variety of daring red carpet outfits. That’s why it’s so refreshing when I find a subject for whom “style” means also makeup, headwear, and hair. I found that in Alicia Keys, who captivated us with her braids and her piano skills and manages to look awesome both while picking up music awards and doing the talk-show circuit. You know that when she’s “working” an outfit, she’s actually working in it.
Plus, it’s her birthday today! Happy 31st, Alicia.
