Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz Host 8th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

While I was sitting home last night playing Cheeky Bingo celebs were enjoying a philanthropic evening hosted by the Beatz family.  The 8th Annual ‘Keep A Child Alive’ Black Ball went down at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. The organization benefits children with AIDS, with this year’s focus being India. Some of the fashionable attendees included Tyra Banks, Kerry Washington, LaLa and Carmelo Anthony, Chanel Iman, and more.

Alicia Keys wore  a Stella McCartney cream blazer over a gold sequined top, black skinny pants, and Christian Louboutin Duvette 120 Metallic and Patent Leather Pumps.

Style Me Prissy red carpet fav, Kerry Washington, stepped out in a playful Donna Karan Spring 2012 dress that she accessorized with Christian Louboutin Pigalle Nude Pumps and a matching clutch.

LaLa Anthony was looking svelte in a floor-skimming black body con dress and an oddly Kim Kardashian Wedding-esque head piece.

Tyra Banks was pretty in a purple David Meister stretch taffeta wrap gown.

Chanel Iman wore a textured black and silver print halter gown.

Serena Williams wore an Azzedine Alaïa  dress styled with Giuseppe Zanotti harness belt, Tom Ford pony hair booties, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. I really hate Serena’s posture and poor eye contact in this pic, but I do like the dress on her. She gets a pass for this time – we’ve all been caught off guard and taken a bad picture! Mine I can delete from my camera.  Hers, unfortunately, end up on stock photo sites.

  1. Okay, I was trying to figure out what I didn’t like about Serena’s picture, and you nailed it — her posture. But yes, I like the dress on her.

    Alicia Keys looks so classic gorgeous! And Kerry… love that dress. And I love how Tyra has her classic “ANTM” pose. LOL.

      lol @ Tyra’s classic pose.
      Girl, there are a few things wrong with that photo. smh. BUT since she cant do anything about those arms i didnt even bring them up. But yes, the dress is flattering on her.

  2. I like Serena ‘s look. And perhaps Lala was in mouring and wore that headpiece for Kim. LMAO
