The Grammy Awards may be one of the few black tie events that allow celebrities to express their personal style freely. Alicia Keys seemed to run away with it in this hybrid outfit.

In 2004, she may have kept her top half traditionally formal, however, she stayed true to her comfortable style and rocked jeans on the bottom. Trying to add another formal touch, she went for a strappy heel. While we applaud her for taking a risk, this is one look that she should look back on as one that just didn't work.
