    Stars from the worlds of film, music, fashion and sport joined forces last night to attend Keep a Child Alive’s annual Black Ball in New York.

    Models Tyra Banks and Chanel Iman rubbed shoulders with the likes of Black Eyed Peas star and actors Kerry Washington, Queen Latifah and David Arquette at the glitzy bash held at the Big Apple’s Hammerstein Ballroom.


    Tennis champ Serena Williams, rapper Swizz Beatz and his wife songstress and Keep a Child Alive co-founder Alicia Keys were also in attendance at the fundraising gala for the charity, which aims to provide life-saving treatment and support to children and families affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and India.

    While most of the guests stuck to black or white, Tyra Banks stood out by adding a pop of colour to the red carpet in a berry purple strapless gown and jewellery. Chanel Iman looked stunning in a slinky beaded halter neck dress, Alicia Keys opted for a black trousers, sequinned top and white blazer ensemble, while Kerry Washington went for fairy tale glamour in a white tulle layered ball gown and pale pink courts.

    But the most unusual fashion look of the night was Serena Williams’ black floor-length dress, which she wore with a metallic belt that was attached to a collar.
