Where: The BlackBerry 10 launch event at Pier 36 in New York City.
Why: Keys sharpened up her style in a classic tuxedo/power suit for her new role as Creative Director at Blackberry. The look says I'm polished, pulled together and chic. Get the look!

#9: Melanie Fiona
Where: The 2013 Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation awards dinner at Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City.
Why: Bravo to Fiona for refreshing the peplum! The singer's mixed print style can pass for chic separates or a fab pattern party dress. In black and white it simply unifies the look. Get the look!

Why: Who knew Lianne La Havas had a body like this behind that guitar?! The singer highlights her curves in a pair of black sateen pants balanced by a white cropped top and blazer. The basic colors is what makes this busy look work. Get the look!

#6: Solange Knowles

#5: Nicole Richie
Where: The Stella McCartney Fall/Winter 2013 Ready-to-Wear show as part of Paris Fashion Week in Paris, France.
Why: Richie plays up stripes strategically placed on a flattering flare silhouette that it gives her petite frame curves. We love that she sports her own House of Harlow line no matter the occasion. Get the look!

#4: Beyoncé Knowles
Where: The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Why: We were all taken aback by Beyonce breaking the mold in this Osman pantsuit on the red carpet that we bypassed all of the details that makes this look so slick. The stark black and white top alone is incedibly sharp but the tailoring precisely hugs every inch of her curves. Get into it! Get the look!

#2: Joan Smalls
Where: The Emilio Pucci runway show during Milan Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2013/14 in Milan, Italy.
Why: Wow! We're completely speechless. Smalls makes this Cavalli print bodycon come to life with equally bad thigh-high boots. We're adding both to the must-have list ASAP! Get the look!

#1: Kelly Rowland
Where: The 85th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, California.
Why: Kelly continues to kill it! When the singer unleashed this black and white Donna Karan gown that served both sophistication and sexiness (did you miss the leg action?) we couldn't help but honor her with the award for best dressed. Get the look!
