Ciara In Valentino – REACH: 24 Portraits By Randall Slavin

Ciara attended the REACH: 24 portraits by Randall Slavin event which benefits the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Programme in LA last night.

We know Ciara as a Givenchy or Emilio Pucci girl, but she opted for a Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 look on this occasion.

I adore this rose pink look which includes a ruffled blouse and leather skirt. It beautifully complements her skin-tone.

I find it so refreshing to see her in this softer look.

A gold glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ tube clutch and nude Louboutin’s completed her look.

    Best I’ve ever seen her!

    • Lil's October 14, 2011 at 10:50 #

      Same here, even though I’m not sure about the colour on her

  2. Nat39 October 13, 2011 at 18:13 #

    The large ruffle looks silly with her bust, combined with the low neckline and divalicious hair, cheapens the look. A bit cheesy sleazy for my liking.

      This is exactly what I came here to say!
      :high five:

    Love the dress, love the fit, but personally i dont think it complinents her colours. But that’s just me saying..

    • Lola October 13, 2011 at 18:25 #

      +1 …Color is not good for her.

    • Vicky October 13, 2011 at 20:28 #

      Completely agree about the coloring.

    • chaufforest October 14, 2011 at 09:29 #

      I think the colour looks great against her skin and its very suttle

  4. Stacy October 13, 2011 at 18:22 #

    She looks beautiful. The pink color complements her bronze skin and of course her legs look great in the leather mini.

        I too think that the color compliments her skin. Her haircolor could be a tad darker, but she looks nice.

  5. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) October 13, 2011 at 18:30 #

    Like Nat39 I’m not mad for the large bust and the ruffles, but I love the color on her that she kept the accessories whistle clean.

  6. Elaine2 October 13, 2011 at 18:47 #

    I think that dress is better suited for someone with a smaller chest. It looks too tight on her, in the midsection.

    • Elaine October 13, 2011 at 23:57 #

      Agreed re suiting someone wit a smaller chest Elaine2! Also would prefer her hair in an upstyle with this outfit

  7. Tania October 13, 2011 at 18:53 #

    She loks lovely.

  8. shaphalf October 13, 2011 at 19:09 #

    This does not look great on her. She looks nice, but maybe her bust is too large for all that ruffling?

  9. Aretha Freire October 13, 2011 at 19:10 #

    Finally she wears something beautiful and not something to show way too much skin as always.

  10. dee October 13, 2011 at 19:12 #

    I like everything but the skirt is too tight.

    • artemis October 13, 2011 at 21:17 #

      Same here..and I think the skirt is too short although she definitely has the legs to pull her off. I love that color on her but she lives still in “tackyville” for me

  11. Rebecca Z October 13, 2011 at 19:23 #

    Gorgeous

  12. Rodolfo Ferretti October 13, 2011 at 19:23 #

    Love the dress, but the color is much better on the model. It fits better on clear skins. Really refreshes Ciara´s appearance.

    • chaufforest October 14, 2011 at 09:43 #

      no way the model looks wash out.

  13. Anna October 13, 2011 at 19:26 #

    this look is too ‘lovely’ to her
    i dont like

  14. samaira October 13, 2011 at 19:59 #

    I couldn’t even recognize her. She should have tied her hair imo, i dont like the divalicious hair with that feminine and delicate hair and i wish she had kept her make up a bit more light. This is an ok look for her, a change nevertheless.

  15. samaira October 13, 2011 at 20:00 #

    I meant feminine and delicate dress… **

  16. LizLemooooon October 13, 2011 at 20:01 #

    These beige/pale shades always look better on someone with darker skin and imo this is the best Ciara’s ever looked. The hair is gorgeous and the honey coloured highlights in soft waves are so beautiful. In love with the colour against her skin and her minimal accessories. I think maybe the fit is tighter because her body is more athletic and curvy than a typical Valentino size 0 but she looks great. Love the tonal shoes and clutch.

  17. Leo October 13, 2011 at 20:15 #

    It is good to see her in something softer but this is such a bad look for her.

  18. Amanda October 13, 2011 at 22:52 #

    Such split comments! I love it. Very pretty and romantic and I don’t see anything tacky about it especially considering her usual style.

  19. JG October 13, 2011 at 23:10 #

    I feel like the fit and short length of this skirt coupled with the large bust just brings this look over the edge into tacky. It’s beautiful on the model but I just don’t think it works on Ciara.

  20. Mrs. A October 13, 2011 at 23:37 #

    BDOTW!!!

  21. Mrs. A October 13, 2011 at 23:40 #

    i really think she looks great and dont get all of the negative comments. Different strokes for different folks, I guess!

    • Fashion Critic October 14, 2011 at 08:53 #

      I am a bit baffled too. I think she looks amazing

    • chaufforest October 14, 2011 at 09:45 #

    This is a great look and this is how and when you wear a pump!! Great fit, great color… lovely to not see a flesh fest. Definitely the best I’ve seen her look. I have to say she also makes me want that outfit… on the model it does not look that wearable to me. I too would have liked to have seen her hair in a high ponytail maybe.

  23. sam October 14, 2011 at 01:50 #

    I think this look is all about that color. That color looks sooo gorgeous on her with her caramel skintone.

  24. Jeremy October 14, 2011 at 02:27 #

    Her make-up had me almost mistaken for a very beautiful drag-queen. Maybe it’s just one picture, or I’d watched too much Rupaul’s Drag Race…

  25. mochababe73 October 14, 2011 at 02:33 #

    I like the color and the concept of the outfit. However, the ruffle is not a good look.
    And, is Ciara doing anything other than showing up at events?

  26. Cheryl October 14, 2011 at 03:33 #

    This is a beautiful look on her IMO. Bronze skin + rose color is so refreshing.

  27. L'wren October 14, 2011 at 03:38 #

    Cannot believe she put this cocktail on,really surprises me!

  28. CreoleLady October 14, 2011 at 10:07 #

    Ciara is beautifully proportioned. In other words, she has a bangin’ bod and fabulous legs. Plus she is a remarkably pretty woman, hard-edged makeup at times and unsmiling stares notwithstanding. The ruffles look just fine to me.

    I really like this look. She does not always have to be hot. Sometimes its nice to be lovely, and I hope she embraces that side a bit more.

  29. Alina October 14, 2011 at 13:07 #

    I think she looks beautiful and the colour is perfect for her skin-tone. I don’t get her angry face .

    • Fashion Critic October 14, 2011 at 13:29 #

      ” I don’t get her angry face “….ah, maybe that is what is putting everyone off this look

      • Alina October 14, 2011 at 13:35 #

        Maybe… why on earth would someone be angry when is wearing Valentino ?

  30. Lori October 14, 2011 at 16:09 #

    I want to like it, but there is something very real housewives of orange county about those ruffles.

  31. Jones19 October 14, 2011 at 20:22 #

    She looks fantastic, I wish the skirt weren’t so tight though.

  32. Amber October 14, 2011 at 21:07 #

    The color is very nice on her, but that’s it. The skirt is a size too small as you can easily see with it pulling on her hips, and the ruffles on the shirt only emphasize her large chest, which, since this supposed to be a “demure” outfit, makes it rather trashy looking.

  33. Allan August 8, 2012 at 00:19 #

    OMG!!!
