Plus, the singer gushes about how she and her hubby first met.
Alicia Keys is looking pretty seductive in her Marie Claire UK cover shoot for the mag's July issue. The singer was whisked away to the Bahamas for the magazine's July issue where she modeled designs by Gucci, Diane von Furstenberg, Versace and Just Cavalli. Keys spilled the goods on what she thought of her hubby Swizz Beatz when they first met and gushed about how much she adored the thigh-high slit on the gorgeous halter Gucci gown she wore on set.
"I think my favorite look is this beautiful animal print Gucci dress, I loved the way that it fell, it felt, like, elegant but at the same time fun, so I think that's my favorite look. Oh, and also that DVF yellow jumpsuit!" Keys says in the behind-the-scenes video.
Being in the Caribbean sparked Keys to talk about her love for travel and she said that a different outlook on life has made her eager for the next adventure.
"I'm really looking forward to having a really incredible time on my travels. I think that to be able to tour and travel the world at this time in my life is different than any other time, and I'm really looking forward to experiencing it in a way I never have before. I'm going to places I've never been, you know, it's a lot of growth, so I'm excited," she said.
