Alicia Keys: MTV Video Music Awards 2012 [PHOTOS]

Apparently silver was the color of the evening at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. Singer Alicia Keys clearly got the memo as she graced the red carpet in an Alexandre Vauthier gown. She completed her look with  Gucci shoes and jewelry by  Lynn Ban and Repossi.

I’m loving the slit in her dress. It makes her look sexy and classy at the same time. Although personally I could have done without the scrunched up fabric on her torso. I guess it adds dimension? Maybe? At least she’s not wearing that awful headpiece she wore to the Chanel show.

The songstress will be taking the stage tonight to perform her latest single, “Girl On Fire”. What if she’d shown up in a red dress that created flames from the bottom as she spun? Oh wait, I think that’s been done before. Check out Alicia’s look in the gallery and tell us what you think in the comments!
