RAISE YOUR VOICE
Alicia Keys lends a hand (make that two!) during Saturday's Global Citizen Festival, where she took the stage in New York City's Central Park to raise awareness on the issue of extreme poverty. "I see the struggles," she told the audience. "No matter where we go, we all deserve a chance at life."
Welcome to another episode of lessons in layering with Alicia Keys. She pairs a floral-printed blouse with a two-toned jacket, then adds black skinnies tucked into high-top wedges from her new Reebok Women's collection at the brand's Live With Fire Event in N.Y.C.
"I think Egypt kissed Blue ... and I don't think Jay liked it very much. He called my husband [Swizz Beatz] and he was like, 'Umm ... watch your son.'"
– Alicia Keys, on 2-year-old son Egypt putting the moves on Beyoncé and Jay-Z's baby girl Blue Ivy, 13 months, on The Wendy Williams Show
Alicia Keys shows her affection for husband Swizz Beatz as the couple kicks back at Monster's House of Hype after-party in L.A. "I love what my wife did," he gushed to PEOPLE about Keys's Grammy performance. "She surprised me playing drums tonight."
When there's more skin than material, the word cutouts doesn't really apply. The singer wears what's essentially one long reptilian-print strap around her torso attached to a mermaid-style skirt.

"Such a powerful image!" Keys says of this picture she took of the Washington Monument. "I believe in our future!"
WHO'S THAT MASKED MAN?
She's seeing double! "Look who we ran into on the way to the parade!" laughs Keys.
