Alicia Keys' Red Gown: Singer Stuns In Michael Kors Design At Inaugural Ball (PHOTOS)

There's no denying that the First Lady Michelle Obama was flawless on Monday. From her navy Thom Browne Inaugural Day ceremony coat to and J.Crew crystal belt, to her showstopping crimson Jason Wu ball gown--everything was pitch perfect.

And FLOTUS wasn't the only one with the red hot hue on their mind.

Alicia Keys also donned a breathtaking red gown to perform at Monday night's Public Inaugural Ball. The Michael Kors designed, matte jersey, crystal embellished, backless creation (wowzas!) wasn't the only crowd-pleasing element of Alicia's appearance. The Grammy Award-winning singer rocked the house with special rendition of her hit song "Girl On Fire," which was aptly changed to "Obamas On Fire" to fete the historical night.

After the First Lady and Alicia's fiery looks we have a feeling that the color red is going to be a huge trend (and just in time for Valentine's Day). And if those two fashion moments aren't enough to convince you, both Rita Ora and Salma Hayek were spotted in Paris yesterday wearing red. Boom! Sorry, emerald green--aka the reigning color of 2013.

Here's a look at Alicia's amazing gown and check out the video above for her "Obamas On Fire" performance.
