This girl is on fire! Alicia Keys was giving Us all the feels as host of the 2019 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in L.A. on Sunday, February 10. The 15-time (!) winner was the first woman to emcee music’s biggest night since Queen Latifah in 2005, and from her good vibes to her fab fashion, she already has Us hoping she’ll be back for the 62nd annual ceremony next year.
Right from the start, Keys made a powerful sartorial statement. Not shying away from wearing red on the red carpet, she arrived alongside hubby Swizz Beatz in a slinky scarlet Armani Prive gown and epic Bulgari jewels. Once the show got started, the songstress treated Us to a quartet of fierce jumpsuits that were all kinds of #HBIC goals. Oh, and her accessories game was equally strong with printed headscarfs, sculptural top hats and blinding bling.
But the clothes weren’t the only noteworthy part of her Grammys lewks. Keys revolutionized the red carpet years ago when she started sporting minimal or no-makeup makeup with her high-fashion ensembles, and she kept the trend going during the ceremony.
Makeup artist Dotti used Burt’s Bees skincare and cosmetics to perfect the radiant look. After prepping her skin with the brand’s Rejuvenating Eye Mask and Conditioning Lip Scrub, she enhanced the singer’s already #flawless complexion with the Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Full Coverage Liquid Makeup and All Aglow Lip & Cheek Sticks in Peach Pond and Peony Pool. A bit of Nourishing Mascara helped to define the eyes, while the Glossy Lipstick in Peony Dew and Nude Rain added a her-lips-but-better effect.
In keeping with the less-is-more theme, celebrity manicurist Dawn Sterling kept her nails neutral with Essie’s Gel Couture Sheer Silhouettes in Of Corset (a beige nude), while mane woman Marcia Hamilton quickly created curls, braids, ponytails and more for the star.
All told, Keys owned the awards show with her peace-and-love persona and cool-girl style. Keep scrolling to see all of her 2019 Grammys looks!
