Alicia Keys is very animated on the cover of Elle's Women In Music issue.
After the somber and beautiful Adele and the aristocratic Rita Ora covers, this vivacious photo of the Girl on Fire is a nice way to cap things off!
The singer wears a bright red Jean Paul Gaultier wool dress with lipstick to match, and while we're not sure if there's a spread to accompany this fun photo, we'd LOVE to see Alicia vamping it up in some seksi outfits!
Hopefully, more pics will turn up soon!

Elle's Women In Music issue is giving us so much life!
First we had that GORGEOUS Adele cover, and now we've been gifted with some supreme ferocity courtesy of Rita Ora!
The singer appears on two separate covers for the mag's May issue, wearing a pink Chanel Haute Couture dress on the first one and rocking a crazy-cool headpiece by Ken O’Rourke.
For the second cover, the 22-year-old channels Mickey Mouse in a Calvin Klein strapless top and Philip Treacy mouse ears.
The spread features
Britney Spears totally loves Adele and she's making her love PUBLIC.
The queen of pop has published an open letter the Grammy, Golden Globe, AND Oscar winner in the latest issue of Elle Magazine praising the new mama for her obvious talent.
“Her voice is just not like any other voice out there. It draws the emotion out of you. A lot of her songs kind of put me in a trance. We were both at the VMAs, and they were like, ‘Do you want to meet Adele?’ And I was like, ‘Um, yes!’ She was even better than I imagined, in person – she’s so incredibly down-to-earth. You can tell she hasn’t gotten caught up in that pop music machine thing – which is easy to get caught in – and she hasn’t just listened to what executives were telling her to do. All of her stuff is hers, and that’s really amazing.”
This is true, but you BOTH are icons.
What we would've done to have been a fly on the wall when these musical dreams met!
Seeing as you guys love each other so much, maybe it is time for a collaboration??

Someone's on a Saint Laurent kick!
Rita Ora wore head-to-toe Saint Laurent to the Elle Women In Music event in NYC on Wednesday, working the shizz out of her floppy hat.
We're sure you'll agree when we say this is infinitely better than her last Saint Laurent look!
Following her red carpet walk, the singer switched it up by donning an ivory Chloe dress with gold cage overlay for her on-stage performance.
We definitely prefer the performance look, but we won't deny that Rita is doing the classic and masculine Saint Laurent S/S 2013 collection justice.
Maybe Hedi Slimane will tap her for his next round of ads?
It wouldn't surprise us!

Thanks to amazing genes and some soft backlighting, Adele glows on the May cover of Elle magazine.
The Oscar winner plays up the romance for the Women In Music issue in a black lace dress and low ponytail, her dark, smoky eyes emitting a smoldering gaze.
Another shot finds her staring wistfully at a vintage-looking microphone, possibly getting ready to belt out a pitch-perfect note.
We're really feeling this story!
It makes us wanna grab a table at a smoke-filled jazz club and listen to velvet-voiced crooners all night!
We hope there are some more pics where these came from!

After wearing a basket in her last photo shoot, Lily Aldridge was probably excited to put on some real clothes!
And not just any clothes but luxurious pieces from Gucci, Balmain, and Chanel!
The statuesque Victoria's Secret Angel pouts fiercely on the April cover of Elle Brazil, and fits in perfectly against a backdrop of the New York City skyline in a ruffled Gucci top.
In fact, the entire spread seems to be a celebration of clean lines and polished silhouettes, with Lily looking like a tall drink of water in a strapless Chanel column dress and Sportmax jacket.
She does bare some skin, however, in a Red Carter swimsuit and Balmain crop top.
But overall it's a very sophisticated shoot! And further proof that the Victoria's Secret girls CAN do high fashion!
Check out the full spread and behind-the-scenes shots in the gallery (below)!

Kate Hudson channels her inner flamenco dancer on the cover of Elle UK's May issue.
Wearing a one-shoulder, scarlet red Gucci gown, Matthew Bellamy's fiancee and baby mama shows off her toned arm for Benny Horne's camera.
The cover is striking, but the rest of Kate's spread, which shows her posing in Dior, Miu Miu and Nina Ricci, is kind of a let down. They don't really capture Kate's personality.
See what we mean (below) and tell us what U think!
