I was surprised to see Ciara not in Givenchy at the 2011 Met Gala, but I’m thankful that she switched things up.

On this occasion she opted for a Prabal Gurung Fall 2011 gown.

The ombre silver and ivory hand-painted silk chiffon and organza hand-braided gown is breath-taking.

Ciara’s dress is so romantic, yet she’s giving off a sexy vibe.

The dress is accessorized with a beautiful jeweled cuff to add an edge to the look.

I love her long wavy hair, smoky eyes and nude lips.
