Keys brims with joy at White House

Alicia Keys opted for a brimmed hat during a special White House screening of The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old combined the stylish black hat with a black polo neck jumper and black leather jacket for the premiere in the White House State Dining Room.

A slick of red lipstick added a splash of colour to the ensemble.

Keys is an executive producer on the film, which has been dubbed as a coming of age story, about two inner-city boys who are left to fend for themselves in the Bronx.

The singer was joined in the State Dining Room by First Lady Michelle Obama, who admitted that she had wept the first time she saw the film.

"I saw this movie this summer and I wept, like I know all of you all did, because you can't help but weep and laugh and look in horror and cheer for these two young kids. Because they represent all of our kids," Mrs Obama said.

The film was shown to a group of educators, as part of a drive by the First Lady to ensure that by 2020 the US would have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.
