2009 American Music Awards: Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys never fails to look gorgeous on the red carpet, but she's also not afraid of strong choices, either. Tonight, she went decidedly retro (peep those earrings!) with blue eye shadow and a complex, old-fashioned updo that looked like it could very well have been worn by Lena Horne or one of the Andrews sisters. What do you think? Was this a pretty blast from the past or a look that stayed in the '40s for a reason?

I love the 40's, Lena Horne, and The Andrews Sisters; but this hairstyle is and has always been awful! I love Alicia Keys and I think she almost always makes great makeup choices that play up her beautiful face; but for some reason she doesn't have as good taste in hair. I love the makeup though. On another note; Anonymous, just because something is a trend does not mean it is flattering, beautiful, or cool...

Her style has changed sooooo much since her first album. I dunno. Sometimes she looks great and others...not so much. I hate the hair

Big no to the hair and I think she needs to darken her eyebrows a bit.

Love the makeup, but the hair is so bad even someone as gorgeous as she is can't save it.
