You couldn’t miss Alicia if you tried on ‘Late Night With David Letterman,’ where the singer paired a striped crop top with a matching skirt. Was her look beautiful or WAY too bright? VOTE!

Vanity Fair‘s ‘Best Dressed Woman of the Year,’ Alicia Keys, came on the show to talk with Letterman about her family and upcoming holiday plans for Christmas and New Years on Dec. 18. Although you may have be interested in what Alicia had to say, it may have been hard for you to tune out her loud get-up!

For starters, Alicia did follow the rules of wearing a crop top by pairing it with a high-waisted bottom, so kudos on that! As for the fit, it made her curvy and toned figure looked stunning… but, she opted for a daring print that may have twisted some people’s head into a knot.

The “Girl on Fire” singer usually steps out looking drop-dead in beautiful ensembles, but this one has got me questioning if she should have just set this outfit on fire. The thick blue sequin stripes against the bright neon-yellow hue makes the outfit look like it could have been made out of caution tape even though Marc Jacobs most likely chose blue to prevent that association from happening — he seemed to fail there.

This ensemble is from Marc Jacobs’ Resort 2013 Collection. Alicia finished off the look with gold pointy pumps. Personally, I feel she should have chose blue pumps to emphasize the color and to keep the traffic-sign associations to a minimum– but that’s just me.

While it’s bright, had she worn it to a summer event or in an exotic location I might have loved the look — but in mid-December it seems more like an eyesore!

Since everyone has their own taste when it comes to style, we would love to hear what you Hollywoodlifers think of this bold outfit. Do you LOVE or LOATHE this look? VOTE!
