Ciara In Givenchy Couture – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Ciara In Givenchy Couture - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Ciara looked stunning on the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening.

It’s no surprise that she’s wearing Givenchy Couture, selecting a Fall 2010 second skin gloved-gown accented with strategically placed crystal embroidery and feathers at the hemline.

While I have a slight feeling of déjà vu – Florence Welch at the 2011 Grammys immediately springs to mind – it takes nothing away from how beautiful the singer looks.

One of my favourites of the night.

You may remember that Mariacarla Boscono wore this same gown to the 2011 Met Gala.

      I toooooootallly agree! YESSSS! I just adore this dress, I am SO glad Ciara rocked this look, even though it’s 2010. It needed a great RC moment. And I find it heads and shoulders above Florence’s look from before. Just stunning, and this is the perfect venue. She’s the first I have seen, but it will be hard to top.

    While I see how someone could like this gown and I appreciate how delicate it surely is, it is not a classy dress at all. I question the taste level and Ciara adds nothing to it. At least Beyoncé’s version at the Met ball included color and a bit more coverage.

      +1 Another thing bothering me about the VMA’s this year is that half these folks got the email to dress for a fun, edgy event, and the other half thought they were going to a parred down version of the Oscars or something. Some of these outfits are too OTT for these event.

        +2. Couldn’t agree more.

    Ciara looks great but I’m not a big fan of the see-through-ness of the dress, especially near the lady bits area. A bit tacky, in my opinion.

    Best Dressed of the night, easily! STUNNING!!!

    • mm August 26, 2013 at 04:43 #

      I agree!

    This is a knockout!! She is spectacular! Striking, daring, sexy, she’s got the body for it, and it’s the right occasion to make a bold statement.

    I would like it, but I feel like I’ve seen this same look from J-Lo and the likes too much to be thrilled by it. If you’re going to jump on a trend, jump on it early.

    • julyol1972 August 26, 2013 at 05:33 #

      +1 She always seems to wear “it” after someone else has, who’s also done it better. I wish she would try to start the trend, for a change.

    She slayed the fitting is on spot

    Mariacarla Boscono at 2011 Met gala sprung to mind.

    I hate to compare but I love this over what Rita Ora wore. She looks spectacular!

    Despite my reservations about the sheerness near the crotch, Ciara is presenting this dress beautifully.
    The fit and styling are perfect.
    The result is daring (VMA appropriate) but not tacky.
    I think she looks stunning.

    This is PERFECTION from h2t.

  15. Iva August 26, 2013 at 08:05 #

    Surprisingly, she wears this all-the-way-see-through dress without looking tacky.
    In fact, she looks very feminine and sexy.
    One of the best looks of the night for me.

    I feel like this has been done a thousand time (by JLo, Beyonce and so on…)
    She managed not to look tacky though, and that’s quite an effort with this dress.

    Someone’s got to be careful while sitting down.

  18. charlotte August 26, 2013 at 14:46 #

    This gown is absolutely gorgeous,but I’m afraid it’s a bit OTT for the occasion.
    although ciara looks fabulous in the dress,I’ll let her pass

    Oh look, Ciara is practically naked again. Boring.

  21. breezedash August 27, 2013 at 13:42 #

  22. victor August 27, 2013 at 17:24 #
