American singer-songwriter, Alicia Keys arrived at the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball in New York last night, wearing a show-stopping red evening dress. Attending the ball with her beau Swizz Beatz and son, Egypt, the Grammy award winning superstar looked positively glowing as the crimson gown accentuated her curvaceous frame. Featuring a super-flattering halter-neck design and cut out triangular eyelets, the dress exuded sophistication. A floor-length evening dress is perfect for celebrating a special occasion and with the festive season in full force, there’s no better hue than deep red. Ms. Keys looked chi and glamorous, keeping accessories to a minimum and sporting a fresh-faced, natural make-up look.
If like Alicia, you want to be the beautiful lady in red this Christmas, then Team LBD has the party dress for you. The Forever Unique Cherry Dress (£220) is a stunning red evening dress with a cross over halter-neck design and a gorgeous, diamond cut out bodice and back.
