We admit it – we were just a tad envious when we saw these photos of the amazing Alicia Keys. We mean, first she hosts the hottest charity music event of the year, then Givenchy dresses her for the red carpet – and gives her another for the stage.

Still, despite our jealousy, we can’t fault Alicia’s flawless style at the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball this week.

On the red carpet she wore a custom made Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci long black bustier dress embroidered with black ostrich feathers on the skirt. It’s stunning, of course, and to keep from looking too cuckoo in all her fabulous featheryness, she accessorised with a glittering gold metal belt, suede sandals and a black satin clutch.

Then, for her performance on stage, she continued the decadent statement in a short zipped black lace and silk dress from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci’s spring 2011 collection, which she teamed with black bondage leather sandals.

What do we love most about Alicia’s two outfits? Her ability to change from sleek and sophisticated on the red carpet to soulful and sexy on stage, all thanks to a quick hair wash to gain some crazy-beautiful curls.

Two dresses, two hairstyles and one amazing voice – we’re definitely still jealous.
