While Taylor Swift wore white and picked a pair of PVC-detailed platform sandals from Christian Louboutin to go with her dress for the 40 Principales Awards the other day, Alicia Keys opted for an all-black outfit and finished her look with black ankle-wrap sandals for the same event.

Now, the obvious question is, with her below-the-knee dress, do you think she looks sexy in those ankle-wrap sandals or just plain short? Should she have picked a pair with no straps so her legs would look longer? Or perhaps worn a shorter dress instead? What do you think?
For the benefit of the ladies wanting Alicia’s sandals, it’s a pair from Giuseppe Zanotti. It’s made of Black Kid suede, comes with super high 5-inch metal stiletto heels, and barely there half-inch thick platforms (actual heel height would be 4.5 inches so you will be teetering!). You can find these sandals at Net-A-Porter if you’re interested; they retail at $650. And if you happen to love color, a fuchsia version of these shoes is available at Shopbop and Neiman Marcus.
