Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz Host Tyra Banks, Chanel Iman, & More For Keep A Child Alive Benefit

Alicia Keys is continuing her charity work with her groups who benefit children with AIDS.  She, along with husband Swizz Beatz, hosted her 8th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC tonight.


And we've got the pics of the fab folks who attended inside...

Mr. & Mrs. Beatz hosted their celebrity friends tonight for Alicia's annual AIDS benefit for children in Africa and beyond.  And this year, Alicia wanted the focus to be on India.

Alicia, who also performed tonight, told MTV News this week:

The theme is going to be all about India because we've moved into helping to serve India in regards to what they’re going through with the AIDS pandemic, just like we do in Africa.  It’s going to be beautiful, the music is going to have a little Indian style to it as well, which is super fun for me to explore.”

More pics from the red carpet:

Alicia Keys wore a Stella McCartney Winter 11 Cream Suiting Jacket with a gold sequin top and Black wool tailoring trousers.


Supermodel and 'ANTM" host Tyra Banks looked stunning in a purple strapless mermaid style evening gown with bow-tie detail:

And paired it with a red lip.

Kerry Washington made a lovely appearance in her white stripe-on-tulle dress and nude Louboutins.  Very interesting. 

And I love it.

The Anthony's showed up in matching all black...and LaLa with her head piece on.


And besties La and Serena Williams kicked it inside.

And Serena looked nice in a black gown with gold belted hardware and cut-outs near the bottom.

Queen Latifah put on her black suit and hat and looked pretty damn dapper:


Model Chanel Iman looked nice in her black and white number.  Looks like the halter was about to hang to low and expose her goodies though.

And will.i.am and Gayle King were there to help celebrate in the benefit as well.

I love Tyra & her forehead

I love Tyra & her forehead makes her even more beautiful. I just want her stylist to stop it with the baby hair because its not needed. Just brush it back and stop trying to frame the face like that.

Serena dress looks Cheap also

Serena dress looks Cheap also the dress looks too Old for her,the Belt is not helping LOL! Lala needs to Quit trying to look like Kim Kardashian SMH,I feel like Lala is doing what Kim did to Paris Hilton. Lala is learning from Kim how to Dress and be a Media whore,but the catch with Lala she is not Greedy like Kim and she has the Husband and Child. If Lala was White Kim would have seen her as a Threat,and they would Not be Friend,but since she Not,her and Kim get along. Kim can't Stand someone having more than her,Money ,Attention ,etc. My Opinion

If lala was white she would

If lala was white she would also get more attention in the media,she has the baller husband,child,decent body even if it is fake lol,she would be america sweetheart .Lala is drama free she is a good role model for women,too bad the mainstream media don't give her her props ,only urban media give her attention.

La La needs to be original. Alicia Keys already wore a head piece to her Keep A Child Alive benefit, last year or the year before!

Lala is that the recycle headpiece from Kim K wedding, it didn't look good on her and it doesn't work for you boo boo. I can appreciate the attempt but the execution is a #Fail.

y must u say she's copying I thought thats how fashion trends start. One person does it and other fall along if the like it they wear it. There friends but I'm sure Lala has no reason to copy her life is doing damn well as we know.

Alicia is simply beautiful

Alicia is simply beautiful and Swizzy is simply just into her. Look at his body language that's how it's done. Tyra always fabulous and always a model. Kerry simply stunning. The Anthony!s looking good. Serena...O'Boy! Its either a hit or miss with you and here we have a another miss. Queen Latifah looking very dapper. Chanel Iman looking model fabulous.

Alicia looks nice. Tyra looks

Alicia looks nice. Tyra looks nice also. Serena has been looking unfortunate lately. Hope she feels better. Kerry looks a hot mess. Like some bridal showroom reject. Lala looks old and the headdress is a period piece which doesn't match the dress. Queen looks like King. Some of your fashion sense are un-amazing. I love the bandwagon effect on here! Monkey say, Monkey amens it! lmao

I'm sorry, but, Serena looks

I'm sorry, but, Serena looks like a man. She needs a stylist. Someone to help her figure out what she needs to wear with her manly physique. Those arms should be covered. That hair has to go. Also, she should never wear a big belt like that because she doesn't have hips. That big belt threw it all off. I can't!!!!

OMG Alicia looks like she's

OMG Alicia looks like she's slimming down nicely!! and her cap toe pumps are gorge!, i dont care for Tyra's dress, but she SURE DOES rock a mean lacefront#WorkItB!tch lol *snaps fingers* Kerry's Louboutins look sooooo fab, but OHHH EMMM GEEE Serena looks soo rediculous in her dress. its not flattering at all. Last but not least, i give LaLa a "B-" for effort, but that head piece is a #Fail Her makeup is nice, but To carry off a head piece she needed to wear a more flowy or Griecan type of dress. Something with a lighter color or Bohemian-esque #SheTried

Serena you look like a man.

Serena you look like a man. You need to wear wide sleeved shirts to hide those yolks and get a better weave maybe. you are making yourself look worse than you should look. Why wear a waist belt when there is a prego pudge when you turn sideways? either suck it in or change that fit. Everyone else looks nice. Lala don't really like the head thing eaither. just keepin it real

Why is LaLa wearing Kim K's

Why is LaLa wearing Kim K's head piece from her wedding? I hate that dress and the head piece. It looks like a necklace that she wore as a head piece. I really don't like Carmelo's suit either that vest is ugly. Kerri dress looks fab Serena is starting to be shaped like a man. She is falling off to me, what is really going on. Tyra is my chick and I love her dress

Alicia and Swizz LOOK LIKE

Alicia and Swizz LOOK LIKE BROTHER & SISTER.....WTF me no likey likey, Lala has way toooo much makeup on and shes not rocking that headpiece correctly, the fit is wrong! And this dress looks ill-fitting on Chanel, doesnt look good at all! Kerry Washington looks like a princess! And Tyra looks washed up with her gel-d down unnatural baby hairs. Love the Queens Ht, she rocking the ish out of it!!!!

Hand on Alicia's belly Swizz? Baby no.2 on the way maybe...As for Serena, her body looks like Wesley Snipes' character in Too Wong Foo.

Kerry and Chanel-Iman

Kerry and Chanel-Iman completely dominated! LaLa is trying too hard, as usual and Tasha, those "nude" Louboutins are not nude on us, they're just beige.

Let me say everyone looks

Let me say everyone looks FAB! When i read these comments everything is always so negative and mean and hurtful. What is going on in your own lives to make u feel this way toward people? This was a charity event for AIDS research and help. Bringing awareness to this cause. And all u can do is criticize the people that were there? So many people made donations and helped. I personally witnessed Swizz, Carmelo and La La, and Serena give from their hearts. Lets not lose sight of this.
