Giorgio Armani and Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys was never my favorite artist but I would never take the fact that she can BLOW away from her. She is an amazing singer but her style on the other hand is not so amazing in my opinion. If you can recall her performance on the 2010 All-Star Game in February, You will remember that it was not that fashionable. She looked as if she was relaxing home on a Sunday with a studded pair of sweatpants(at least they looked like sweats), tank top, and over-sized necklace that did nothing for her ensemble. Her stylist is to blame for that one. BUT Alicia has decided to step it up for her "Element of Freedom" Tour.
Alicia Keys has teamed up with Giorgio Armani and he is now the designer of her European Tour's costumes. THIS IS GREAT! Alicia is a beautiful and I mean GORGEOUS woman. With the designs of Great Designer Giorgio Armani, she will shine beyond her voice and looks, and now her style.
Mister Armani has designed beautiful yet fashionable costumes for her. Some of the looks include an embroidered, crocodile-print military leather jacket worn with leggings, a silk one-shoulder top and Swarovski crystal-studded leather boots, a dark gray one-shoulder silk chiffon gown accented with Swarovski crystals and sequins; a second silk, embroidered one-shoulder top worn with leggings and crystal-kissed boots; and a sexy, ruffled black viscose lame mini dress accessorized with Swarovski crystal gloves.
This is great for Alicia because with costumes like this, she'll be sure the catch the eyes of everyone. Its not too much for yet it still holds the elegance of Alicia Keys herself and is totally fashionable. I can't wait to see the finished products of the garments. Here are some of the illustrations.
