On the Scene: The 2012 Keep A Child Alive Black Ball Redux

Last night, The Apollo Theater in NYC was alive with the sights and sounds of celebrities for the 2012 Keep A Child Alive Black Ball Redux. It was a momentous night for Alicia Keys, as the charity raised $1.3 million dollars, even after having to reschedule the ball after Hurricane Sandy. The red carpet was full of glamorous looks, though everyone kept it quite safe.

Check out some of the night’s most noteworthy ensembles:

The lady of the night looked ravishing in a burgundy gown from Azzedine Alaia, though I think she could have left the choker at home.

Swizz Beatz held his lady down in a dapper Alexander McQueen suit, similar to the one he wore at the 2012 American Music Awards though the color looks a bit different.

Supermodel Chanel Iman took to the red carpet in a strapless shimmering gown. Gorgeous!

A breath of fresh air swept through the event when Padma Lakshmi arrived! She looked ethereal in a white strapless gown.

Gayle King skewed conservative in a long-sleeve striped flare dress. Not her best…

Who had your favorite look of the night?
