Alicia Keys performs during the Stella McCartney fashion launch at Cotton Club on Jan. 10, 2017 in New York City.

American designer (and Paul McCartney's daughter) Stella McCartney hosted a pre-fall fashion show party Tuesday night (Jan. 10). Guests came to Harlem’s historic Cotton Club, a jazzy venue that hosted legendary artists like Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Billie Holiday.

“The fusion of fashion and music with this venue is so historical,” McCartney told WWD about her decision to host at the Cotton Club. The designer herself continued this tradition of greats with the night’s star performer Alicia Keys.

Keys performed “Empire State of Mind” in a fuchsia, caped dress and dazzling hair piece evocative of the 1930’s. Throughout the night, a full jazz band was in swing as celebrity guests mingled and models sported the McCartney Autumn 2017 collection filled with luscious reds, oversized knits, and lots of fringes.

Check out shots from the event and a clip of Keys' performance below.
