It’s been a packed week in London, which has hosted the Sex and the City ladies, the National Movie Awards, and, last night, Alicia Keys, who had hosting duties of her own at the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball. The R&B chanteuse opted for custom Dolce & Gabbana for the event, which raised money for orphaned children. The bubble-skirted Dolce gown is an over-the-top choice, but one that Keys pulls off nicely. She counterbalanced the flounce with very little jewelry and understated hair and makeup, letting the dress command the attention. Bonus points for the killer studded-and-sparkled Louboutin pumps, which add a little glam-rock edge, and for that as-yet-unseen accessory: the baby bump. Keys confirmed last night that she’s engaged to producer Swizz Beats, and pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Alicia Keys is hiding messages in her new (and first) line of jewelry, created in collaboration with Gisèle Theriault. The affirmations are courtesy of Dr. Masaru Emoto, the controversial Japanese author of The Hidden Messages in Water. How positively metaphysical. [WWD]
