Red Carpet Re-Do: Alicia Keys's Nighttime Casual Look

January 22, 2010 by Marisa Siegel
shefinds | Style

All too often celebs take what could have been a fabulous red carpet ensemble, and turn it into a fashion nightmare.  With Red Carpet Re-do we take stars’ style slip-ups and show you  how to make it work.  Alicia Keys’ most recent outfit definitely warrants a fine from the fashion police, but we love her bedazzled mini.  We’ve laid out where Alicia went wrong and how to save this mini from making it onto the worst dressed lists again.

What She Did Wrong:

  • Leggings with sandals are never, ever a good idea
  • Black tights are a winter staple, while a strapless mini is perfect for a warm summer evening; together however, they are simply confusing
  • The sparkles on the dress plus the sparkles on the ankles of the leggings plus the large gold earrings are too much bling on one petite frame
  • Her lack of a cute clutch leaves us wonder where she kept her lip gloss and blackberry
  • We wouldn’t have gone with the frizzy bride of Frankenstein hair, but Alicia is just so darn beautiful that we could maybe let that slide

What She Should Have Done:

  • Lost the leggings in favor of nude stockings
  • Stuck with metallic strappy sandals
  • Traded in the large hoop earrings for delicate chain-link ones
  • Topped off the look with a metallic accented clutch
  • Worn a sleek and straight ponytail to amp up the chic factor

Here’s how we would rock this look:

French Connection Dress

French Connection, $214

Miss Me Sandals

Miss Me, $45.95

Ann Taylor Earrings

Ann Taylor, $24.50

Whiting & Davis Clutch

Whiting & Davis, $185
