2002 44th Annual GRAMMY Awards
In 2002, Keys snagged her first GRAMMYs, including one award for Best New Artist. The newcomer stunned on the red carpet in a flowing floral dress, which was juxtaposed with an architectural leather corset. Plus, the singer rocked some major eye glitter, a huge departure from her current makeup-free look.
2007 CFDA Fashion Awards
On the 2007 CFDA Fashion Awards carpet, Alicia opted to keep things sleek, simple and sophisticated. With a gold clutch in hand and blue eyeliner included, the artist’s spunky side shines through.
Billboard’s Women In Music 2019 red carpet
Purple is Keys’ color! In head-to-toe Prabal Gurung, the “No One” singer exudes beauty and power. On this evening, the artist opted to don winged cat-eye liner and a lilac lip, dressing up her typical makeup-free aesthetic.
2019 Latin GRAMMY Awards
Alicia’s two-piece leather look and snatched high braid at the 2019 Latin GRAMMYs might be our favorite look ever. It’s hard to deny the fact that Alicia knows how to intertwine elegance and edginess into her ensembles.
2020 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards
As the host of the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards, Keys rocked many looks that evening, but it was hard to forget her shimmering Atelier Versace gown. The glittering mesh dress fit like a glove and featured extra crystals along her neckline and shoulder for some additional glitz.

Bringing old Hollywood glamour to the 2021 Met Gala carpet, for the “In America” theme, Alicia wore custom AZ Factory and a bold rep lip to compliment her snow-white tulle skirt.
