ALL KEYED UP: Alicia Keys, whose Set the World on Fire tour kicked off last week in Seattle, is keeping her signature streamlined look on stage with help from Akris, Michael Kors, Hervé Léger and Maison Michel. Albert Kriemler of Akris customized several runway looks. As Keys’ stylist Laura Jones noted, “While Albert was designing his fall ready-to-wear collection I was in the beginning phases of planning for Alicia’s tour. When we began to collaborate on her wardrobe, he found great ways to take the spirit of that collection and translate it into a series of show-worthy looks. Alicia loves fashion but she ultimately likes to keep her wardrobe uncomplicated, so we wanted to keep the silhouette clean and really focus on great fabrics and flattering shapes.”
