Alicia Keys in Stella McCartney at the 2013 ARIA Awards

Posted on December 02, 2013

Kittens, can you get over your near-legendary (in our minds, anyway) hatred of Stella McCartney’s designs? We’re asking because we think this look is pretty crazy-hot.

Alicia Keys attend the 27th Annual ARIA Awards 2013 at the Star in Sydney, Australia in a Stella McCartney yellow sleeveless gown.

The color and the shape look amazing on her, you have to admit. Our only issue with the design is the illusion netting and the shape it gives to the bodice. It makes it look like she’s wearing a bib of sorts. This is the one thing McCartney consistently does that makes her designs look awkward: she does these odd cutouts or insists on making strange shapes out of somewhat standard dress designs. Still, we think there’s way more right than wrong going on here.

As for the styling, the hair looks great, the makeup only so-so, and there’s no way a heavy gold chain necklace should be worn with that belt or that neckline.
