Alicia Keys Is a Pink Dream in a Crop Top, High-Waisted Pants & a Puffy Cape at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards

Alicia Keys was a vision in pink at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards.

On Sunday, Keys stepped on the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, wearing a fun monochrome look from Valentino. The ensemble included a crop top and classic high-waisted trousers. Giving the look an edge, Keys layered the outfit with a dramatic cape also from the label.

The outerwear piece featured dramatic puff sleeves and a train that cascaded down behind her. For her glam, Keys opted for a braided up do with barely-there makeup — a signature look for the star. She then accessorized with white hoop earrings.
