Azzedine Alaïa Fashion Face-Off: Alicia Keys vs. Naomi Campbell -- POLL

Oh, say can you see that the Azzedine Alaïa dress Naomi Campbell wore to last night’s premiere of The Face is almost identical to the Azzedine Alaïa dress Alicia Keys wore to sing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl?

This isn’t just on, it’s Azzedine Alaïa on!

Last Sunday, Keys took the field at the Superdome wearing the body-con dress in a standout crimson shade. The singer added a little drama to the look with a Marina B choker, diamond studs and smokey eye makeup.

Campbell, who braved icy temperatures to show off her snow white Alaïa on the red carpet at the Face premiere in New York City, styled the garment with a diamond choker and cuff, an emerald statement ring and Christian Louboutin platform heels.

There’s a difference in the width of the straps — and (obviously) they’re different colors — but both dresses have a dramatic fishtail hemline, and the ultra-feminine, curve-hugging silhouette for which the designer is known.

It comes down to color and styling in this head-to-head Fashion Face-Off. Who wore Alaïa better? Cast your vote in the poll below!  READ FULL STORY

Beyonce's Super Bowl Bodysuit: Who is designer Rubin Singer?

In the fashion world, having one of the world’s most famous women wear one of your designs on the public stage can take you from relative unknown to household name in a matter of minutes. Just ask Jason Wu.

So New York City based Rubin Singer was right to get excited when Beyoncé performed at last night’s Super Bowl halftime show wearing costumes he created. The pop sensation’s cropped leather motorcycle jacket and bodysuit of python, leather, and lace, were both based on looks from Singer’s latest collection. The designer also provided stage costumes for Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams and 120 backup dancers. (Kelly Rowland wore a leather bodysuit by Emilio Pucci.)

Who is Rubin Singer?

According to the New York Times, the second-generation fashion designer, who counts opera, history and quintessential ’80s brands like Azzedine Alaïa among his influences, first met Beyoncé through her stylist, Ty Hunter, about six years ago. When members of Beyoncé’s camp saw sketches of the designer’s fall 2013 collection — which he dubbed “Valkyrie’s Dominion” — they invited him to submit ideas for the Super Bowl show.

“Everyone’s expecting Beyoncé to go with a major designer,” he told Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn a few days before the big event. “She knows it’s a game-changer — no pun intended.”

Designing for Beyoncé may have landed Singer on the fashion map — and on CNN — but last night wasn’t the first time he’s dressed a celebrity. In fact, it wasn’t even the first time he’s dressed a celebrity for a Super Bowl performance.

Super Bowl Style: Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake and more

Hours before Beyoncé’s highly anticipated Super Bowl performance, designer Rubin Singer revealed that he created a special design she’d wear on stage.

“A Super Style happening behind this walls,” Singer, who has had a five-year designing relationship with the pop star, Tweeted. “Tonight @SuperBowl will be all about team @Beyonce and team @RubinSinger.”

Come showtime, football fans at the New Orleans Superdome went wild as the self-proclaimed “Diva” dramatically popped the collar on her motorcycle jacket and sauntered to center stage in Rubin Singer leather and lace bodysuit and Proenza Schouler boots to the opening swells of “Crazy in Love.”

By the time she finished her complete set, #BeyonceBowl” was trending and Twitter was flooded with commentary on the pop star’s high-energy performance and racy look. “Beyonce’s outfit for Wimbledon. But in white? Hummmmmmm,” Serena Williams mused on her  Twitter page (PopStyle vote: notsomuch). “Yes, B. Yes. Roasted that… #KINGBEY,” Tweeted “Suit & Tie” crooner Justin Timberlake. Jay-Z summed up his wife’s performance with the proud  Tweet: “Lights out!!! Any questions??”
