Red Carpet: Alicia Keys hit all the right notes in this understated yet elegant LBD. Going against the longer trend of the evening and rocking a cocktail length-frock, she managed to make it look fashion-forward with pumped up shoulders, a gold statement necklace, and futuristic style ‘do. "She showed that you don't need a lot of fuss to make a statement," Sarre says. Her hubby Swizz Beatz in a purple velvet blazer was the perfect accessory.
Reality: You don't need us to preach the benefits of having a basic black LBD in your wardrobe. But, to punch up the look, "every girl should have one statement piece of jewelry on hand that can instantly transform a simple look into a ‘wow,'" Sarre says. This dress hugs her curves in all the right places and is flattering for every figure. My only caution? The ankle straps on her shoes can tend to stump the leg line so she would have been better off going with a peep-toe pump.
