Alicia Keys Graces W Magazine

cess_alicia-keys-01-v

Anytime fashion and music collide, something fabulous and beautiful is born. So, when fashionistas open this month’s edition of W magazine, they will be graced with an amazing article about one of the most talented and fierce R&B singers out today, Alicia Keys.

As you read the article, you can’t help to notice the picture of Alicia Keys wearing an Alexander McQueen wool jacket and a Versace ring. Keys tells W magazine, “We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to overcome, but we were still young and beautiful. I didn’t want to be all dressed up, all made up—I wanted to be myself, which hadn’t been done before.”

Of course she is very musically inclined, but she also has a style that is very chic, but in an unintentionally way. You can’t help but  notice the trends she starts -  from every girl wearing braids when we were first introduced to Keys a decade ago, to the oh so fabulous French Connection drape dress in her Unthinkable (I’m Ready) video.

Keys goes on to tell music and fashion lovers in W magazine about her start and struggles in the music industry and a little about her personal life. This article is a must read for everyone that has big dreams. Alicia Keys is a not just a music icon, but a fashion icon. Fashionistas can take notes from Ms. Keys’ individuality style with Keys saying, “People fell in love with the real me, and I still feel blessed that that was how the journey began.”
