Did you enjoy Taylor Swift‘s VH1 Storytellers episode yesterday? Then you’re certainly in for a treat today as it’s time for the Storytellers slot featuring the amazing Alicia Keys, which will air today at 11 p.m. EST. We had a hell of a time trying to decide how to fete Alicia as there are so many ways to do it. What we finally decided on was to focus on three very important aspects all at once! Y’all know how the singer’s fashion, hair and beauty sense has evolved over the years, but we noticed how all three changed in tandem with each other. We’ve got a gallery below, filled with 50 examples that stretch back all the way to 2001, to show how her look has moved forward in a most symmetrical manner. For instance, a decade ago, she had the braids with a touch of earth mother and a touch of hip going on. So, lots of boot-legged pants, pointed boots, ethnic touches like the fabric on her jackets or in her jewelry, with deeper colors in her makeup. That evolved to spaces like 2006 award shows where she started wearing sexy gowns and did her hair up to show off bronzed skin, gleaming lips and cat eyes. 2012 is where the hair is bobbed and the fashion is minimal but very sexy with pops of color like bright pink lips or interesting shoes. The one thing that’s never changed is Alicia’s love for experimenting — with her style, hair and makeup — and that’s what we love about her!
VH1 Storytellers is highlighting three amazing ladies in three days, beginning with Taylor Swift on Sunday; Alicia on Monday, at 11 p.m. EST; and wrapping up with P!nk, on Tuesday at 11 p.m. EST.
