If there’s anything Alicia Keys reminded us while hosting the 2020 Grammys on Sunday, January 26, it’s that she’s the ultimate fashionista. The amazing outfits didn’t end at the awards show, though. While out with husband Swizz Beats and their son Genesis later that night, the 39-year-old wore a chic hot pink blazer, with a multi-colored Versace crop top, jeans and black boots, and she slayed this look!
Alicia always manages to look flawless, which makes her confidence shine through. The best part of her style is that the brunette beauty proves you can be yourself and be beautiful. For instance, Alicia often rocks a bare face, flaunting her natural beauty. Though she makes it look easy to feel comfortable not wearing makeup, that wasn’t the case when she was younger.
“Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn’t put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it???” the singer wrote in a personal essay on Lenny Letter. “These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me.”
She confessed that in order to fill out the noise, she had to look within herself. “I found my way to meditation, and I started focusing on clarity and a deeper knowing of myself. I focused on cultivating strength and conviction and put a practice in place to learn more about the real me.”
That was all put to a test one day in 2016 when she walked into a photo shoot simply wearing sweats and no makeup and her photographer insisted in taking photos of her like that. At first, Alicia felt uncomfortable posing so naturally. However, soon enough she began to feel good in her own skin.
“I felt powerful because my initial intentions realized themselves,” she said continued. “My desire to listen to myself, to tear down the walls I built over all those years, to be full of purpose and to be myself! The universe was listening to those things I’d promised myself, or maybe I was just finally listening to the universe, but however it goes, that’s how this whole #nomakeup thing began.” We’re here for it!
