The People’s Choice Awards are a youthful ceremony that blends television, film and music for a night where the winners are awarded by their fans rather than a committee, and the fashion is a little more relaxed than the more formal ceremonies to come during award season.
One of the most anticipated acts at the People’s Choice Awards was Alicia Keys who always delivers a strong performance for her fans. Performing “Girl on Fire” and “New Day,” Alicia Keys had the audience on their feet before singing her first note. The emotive set began with her sitting at a piano allowing her musicianship and lyrics to shine. Alicia Keys kicked up the volume for her “New Day” piece moving away from the piano and joined by a group of male dancers.
Always a style icon, Alicia Keys selected a sleek equestrian look with a velvet red blazer and knee high boots. Recently the singer selected a pair of Derek Cardigan glasses for her “Brand New Me” music video and is continually changing her style to suit the mood of her current hit.
Perennial favorites were present at the People’s Choice Awards, and were awarded throughout the evening, including Jennifer Aniston in a leather dress from Christian Dior and Robert Downey Jr. sporting his trademark thick frames. Winner of the Favorite Actress People’s Choice Award, and newly minted Oscar Nominee, Jennifer Lawrence continued to build on an already amazing year in Valentino Couture. Taylor Swift chose to collect her most recent hardware in a sophisticated, deep plunging gown from the Ralph Lauren Collection.
