Alicia Keys brings her A-game to the red carpet

Alicia Keys stunned as she walked the red carpet for her event, the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball. The charity raises money and awareness of HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. According to Us Weekly, Keys donned a maroon Azzedine Alaia dress and she paired it with a Cartier bracelet cuff and necklace.

Keys is very committed to the project and the event, which was supposed to fall on November 1, but was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy. Keys is pushing for this cause more than ever, explaining that the brief time Americans had to deal with loss of power was how people always live across the globe.

"There are places in the world where Keep a Child Alive serves where they have a Hurricane Sandy everyday," Keys told the news source. "They don't have electricity, they don't have heat … and that made me more invigorated to make sure this Black Ball happened."

During the event, Keys also honored Oprah Winfrey for her philanthropic efforts over the years including the creation of The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.
