    i agree. what was her team thinking, everything looks really bad on her. Her mum looks good. Finally she is letting her come around for support.

    No NO NO NO. Alicia is usually very gorgeous but she looks horrible here. Whoever did this needs to be fired.

    The dress is nice but her face (makeup and hair) is just wrong

    ak Says:

    great color, love jewels around her lovely decollete but ak, this is not working. top heavy (to say the least) and bad make up make her Alicia nefertitish….shame cos shes so talented, beautiful and smart.

    The Arab Aquarius Says:

    I like the dress style, very egyptiona. But it needs to be in a different, softer color. That color is too loud for such style. And the makeup is too loud as well, it needs to be smiple, because the neck of the dress is too happening, so u cant add to it by bright makeup.

    zandvluver Says:

    i dont like how she looks I liher before she became really famous when she didn’t put so much make-up her face looked really natural she lookes beatiful i really think she shouldnt put alot of make-up because she just had natural beauty ♥

    Too much of everything – bejewling, hair, and makeup. Ugh!

    yeah she looks so much different

    tara Says:

    I’ve never thought she was pretty, I guess when she first came out she had the appeal of being new on the scene and she wasn’t ugly so she got attention. but this is terrible, it looks way too overdone and hard and her false eyelashes are on the wrong way, they make her top eyes look wonky and droopy.

    Jenn Says:

    Her face looks all contorted and damaged. She must have been on the crack pipe that night.

    my 2 cents Says:

    This is an event where she can get away with wearing something like this. It’s EVENT hair, makeup and dress. One thing I can’t stand is women dressing at black tie events with a simple dress and flat hair. and no jewels. Stay home with that “simple”.

    not that bad Says:

    she looks cross eyed though,

    Team Lara Croft Says:

    She has a stunning face but too much make-up here. I find it fascinating that her mother is quite average but maaged to have such a stunner of a daughter – I guess must be the mixed genes. She always looks butchy to me but she is quite stunning. Perfect features.

    nice droplet of lip gloss on my top lip. look at the picture of her face at it’s largest.

    I love Alicia,she is one of my favorites. I think the dress looks beautiful on her. I would rather see her hair down and not so much make-up,
    but I still love her.

    G550 Says:

    You’re looking at makeup for broadcast, photographed up close, so of course it looks horrid. On the telly it probably looked great. I like the look and the dress is quite ice. It’s retro like an old Eartha Kitt or Ella Fitzgerald or 50s album cover.

    Mad_Hatter Says:

    I like it, I think she looks like and egyptian goddess, Not many people would be able to pull off that look (Beyonce being one of them..sorry fans) but Alica pulls it off nicely :)

    Wedding Peach Says:

    The bejeweled neckline is chunky and clunky, yet eye-catching, and quite, quite accentuates the dress.

    Lady Says:

    #23 quote : ‘Her face looks all contorted and damaged. She must have been on the crack pipe that night.’

    Initially I thought the same but on close inspection I realized it was the silly jewelry reflecting on her face.

    I am biracial and I find when makeup artists apply my makeup I look like a drag queen! I don’t know if it is because they don’t know what to do with me lol…. I have seen Alicia before and she looks very gorgeous without the makeup – get another makeup artist Alicia!

    tara 22 ITA, never thought she was that great looking, she’s cute.
    Talent is what I like about her.

    The dress is gorgeous, just on the wrong person.
    Too much makeup, and her face looks so uncomfortable.

    Very pretty girl, just wrong get-up.

    She usually looks gorgeous, but not in this picture. Everything is just wrong.

    How many layers of makeup is she wearing? It almost looks unclean.

    Beautiful dress but she looks HORRIBLE! She has on POUNDS of makeup and that hair looks like a HOT MESS!!!!!!

    anonymous Says:

    The dress is beautiful. A simple upswept ponytail would’ve done the trick. I can’t wait for her to stop giving us that faux hard-core ghetto smirk. She’s too beautiful and intelligent for that nonsense. It’s time to leave Hell’s kitchen behind.

    everything is wrong here.
    even her make up.
    i’ve never seen her this flugly.

    blueangel Says:

    Alicia is very pretty but you wouldn’t know that from these pictures. She needs to wear a different dress and put her hair down.

    just precious Says:

    hahahaha…she looks really…eh…special. i’m starting to think she’s a bit of an excentric. that hairdo doesn’t suit her face at all and although I actually like the neckline of the dress, the color and the cut just doesn’t match it…it doesn’t make it work for me. anyway…there’s just something about that girl that i find kind of off-putting. i’m not sure what it is tho…

  63. 63
    amber Says:

    She’s a naturally pretty girl – she needs to tone down the hideous makeup. And that hair is criminal.

    duckie Says:

    ahem…not her best look. I love Alicia anyway.

  65. 65

    What happen to her? I mean she is a pretty lady, but here it’s painful to look at :)

    I concur with all who said the makeup was crazy it was too bright around the eyes……..

    I think she has a spray-on tan that turned her shin from caramel to orangy-mud.

    Jes Says:

    omg… ew. i hate her to begin with, she always looks like she’s stoned or lazy-eyed because of the way her eyes are hardly EVER fully open….
    this takes the icing on the cake though. the dress is really nice… the person wearing it is disgusting!!!!
