Alicia Keys is bringing the fire to the Harper's BAZAAR ICONS party this year. The 15-time Grammy winner and our September 2019 cover star is performing at our sixth annual celebration at The Plaza in Manhattan. The soirée takes place on September 6, kicking off New York Fashion Week. Cartier is the exclusive Maison partner for this year’s event.
Also expected to attend are the 2019 Icons, dubbed "The Independents," who were selected by Global Fashion Director Carine Roitfeld to appear in the issue. Roitfeld highlights a set of unique and talented "cultural forces" who were photographed by Mario Sorrenti, including Celine Dion, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, Regina King, Alek Wek, Shailene Woodley, Awkwafina, Lakeith Stanfield, and Devon Aoki.
Those who won't be able to see Keys at the ICONS party will still be able to relish in exciting music news from the R&B star—a new album is imminent. "It reflects where I am today," Keys teased of her upcoming LP, "The deeper acceptance I have of who I am as a full human being, the flaws, the pieces that I used to push aside because I wasn’t ready to embrace the anger or the fear or the crazy."
