This Week in Chic: Alicia Keys, Joan Smalls, Rihanna, and More!

Happy Thursday folks!

This week has flown by and I cannot wait for the weekend as a pre-Halloween costume party awaits!

The ladies were out and about this week and kept it sexy in leather, loads of leg, and mostly all-black. Of course, not everyone went for va-va voom and the rest just kept it pretty and polished.

Check out some of this week’s most noteworthy looks:

Alicia Keys went for red lips and a two-tone leather jacket while at a meet and greet in ATL. Hot!

All-black was the look for Joan Smalls who exposed some skin in a crop top and long skirt while at the Mario Testino Exhibit Party at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Rihanna kept it neutral in a form-fitting mini dress and brown sandals after hitting Greystone Manor in LA. Work it Rih!

Like Joan, Kim Kardashian went for all-black with a pop of metallic at Miami International Airport. She slipped on her favorite Tom Ford blouse (which she already has in red), leather skinnies, Christian Louboutin Coxinelle Pumps, and casually grasped a black fur. The lifestyles of the rich and famous…I’ve never seen any look like this in the airport, but leave it to Kimmy to go glam in the most mundane of places.

First Lady Michelle Obama added some print to the week’s looks while making an appearance on LIVE with Kelly and Michael.

Everything was coming up gold for Chanel Iman at the God’s Love We Deliver 2012 Golden Heart Awards in NYC. Yes Chanel!

Allyson Felix also glimmered in gold at the 33rd Annual Salute to Women in Sports Gala in NYC.

Kimora Lee Simmons dazzled in white at the Mr. Pink Ginseng Launch Party in Beverly Hills. She’s aging backwards: let’s call her Kimora Lee Button.

While at the DASH store in Miami, Kourtney Kardashian looked ’70s chic in a scarf print blouse and wide-leg pants. Hot!

Jennifer Lopez went for luxury in a python coat while in Berlin. I need to see the inside of her closet, stat!

Eva Longoria posed with Deepak Chopra at the Nine Rivers Gala at the Rubin Museum. She looks beyond stunning and I’m totally into Mr. Chopra’s kicks!

Another all-black look…Ashley Madekwe threw on a leather, mini dress and boots at the Chateau Marmont.

Salma Hayek showed off her curves on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. She’s my girl crush: you can see why.

At the 2012 Resolution Projects Resolve Gala, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were the epitome of elegance.

Hannah Simone practically shut the entire 3rd Annual Autumn Party in West Hollywood down in a white keyhole-detailed sheath and strappy nude sandals.

Right behind Hannah at the Autumn Party was Garcelle Beauvais who looked like a Park Avenue princess in a fur shrug, black sheath, and red peep-toe sandals. Give it to us Garcelle!

Along with Solange Knowles, Condola Rashad was also in attendance at the American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Fall New York City Center Gala. She looked radiant in a white strapless gown. This woman is definitely one to watch!

Supermodel Alek Wek was also at the ABT Opening Night Gala. She gave a black Zac Posen gown a pop of color with a McKenzie Liautaud statement necklace.

Nicole Ari Parker showed off her new cornrows in a casual look in NYC. I like it!

A pink trench and matching lips uplifted Leona Lewis’s simple black look at Mahiki Nightclub in London.
