Leave it to Alicia Keys to shout out New York in song — and fashion. The "Empire State of Mind" artist has her unforgettable "New Yorkkkkk" vocal run embedded in our brains forever; now, we won't forget about the Big Apple visually, thanks to her 2022 Met Gala look.

While she may not have put the "lights out" as she tweeted, Alicia Keys definitely blinded us with her shimmering Ralph Lauren ensemble: a sleeveless column dress and a floor-length cape.

The front may not scream "New York," but no worries, the back of her cape got the job done. The singer — who stepped out in makeup for the first time in six years — revealed the iconic New York skyline glistening on the back of her cape.

Keys' look details may have sold genuine New Yorkers. But for me, her crystal CD ponytail was the chef's kiss moment to her Met 'fit.

Then, you also have to appreciate Swizz Beatz complimenting her fly with his Ralph Lauren New York-approved varsity jacket, topped off with the classic Yankees fitted cap.

Meanwhile, Tiffany & Co. supplies jewelry steez for the couple's red carpet drip.

One thing is for sure when it comes to Alicia Keys, you can always expect NY content, whether in style or music.
