She’s no stranger to high-profile events, and earlier tonight (September 6) Alicia Keys dazzled her way down the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.

The 31-year-old American R&B singer-songwriter was in fine form as she posed in a figure-flaunting Alexandre Vauthier gown teamed with Gucci kicks while making her way inside the Staples Center to catch all the action and offer up a surely fabulous stage effort.

Joining Alicia amongst the big names set to perform, other acts include Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Green Day, P!nk and first-timer Frank Ocean.

With Kevin Hart acting as host, the 2012 MTV VMAs also will see Hollywood stars such as Miley Cyrus, Mac Miller, Ke$ha and the Gold medal winning U.S. gymnastics team best known as the "Fierce Five" dish out MoonMan trophies to this year's surely deserving winners.
