Inspired by Freedom: Get Alicia’s Military Look

by Sherria

Last week I attended the Alicia Keys Concert. While I don’t consider her the most fashionable person, I give her credit for trying to step her game up. It could be that she is in love now and wants to look good for her man (Swizz Beatz) or maybe, just maybe she’s starting to realize that the visual presentation is just as important as displaying her awesome talent.

Alicia Keys’ ensembles during the concert reminded me of Michael Jackson’s stage outfits- military jackets and glitter. The overall theme of her concert focused on freedom, rebellion, and love. I assume the red military jacket and black sequins pants she wore was supposed to represent freedom; her curly hair could have represented rebellion while her songs reflected love. Overall, Alicia looked great and if channeling freedom, rebellion, and love can make her look that good then she should continue!
