Ciara In J. Mendel – 2013 American Music Awards

Ciara In J. Mendel – 2013 American Music Awards

Ciara looked every bit the R&B starlet on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday night.

The singer wore a graphic, peek-a-boo gown from the J. Mendel Spring 2014 collection, which I think is safe to say was made for her.

The graphically patterned dress offers an exciting ‘is it or isn’t it’ continuous flash of skin, and manages to reveal a lot, without actually seeming all that risqué.

Ciara was smart to keep the accessories at the bare minimum and really let this dress sing, and even kept her makeup to the glam minimum.

My one disappointment here is her hair. I was loving her shoulder-length bob, and this shorter version just seems a bit too perky and soccer mom for the star. I look forward to seeing how she styles it for her next public appearance.

    This dress can come off tacky and risque on the wrong person.

    She is actually working this look. I like this on her.

      Agree.
      I think the very conservative hairstyle actually helps here. It keeps her from looking like she is trying TOO hard to be sexy.

      “This dress can come off tacky and risque on the wrong person.”

      This. And that’s why I’d like to see it on somebody else. Karolina et al.

    Beautiful dress, I love it with her skin.

    The hair is 9-5 office job.

    I feel like I’ve seen this exact outfit on her at least twice before. She’s playing it safe.

    Why are her clothes at these events always sheer. Always the same tried and true formula. She’s boring, and I’m bored!

    she looks good!

    This has to be one of her best looks lately, I really like it.

    For once I’m absolutely floored by her. Otherwise, I don’t really care for her looks. The dress was made for her and she does full justice to it. For once I don’t mind the tried and tested sheer formula.

    Love the dress on her but not the hair so much.

    It all works very well for her, loving the eye-catching graphic pattern, the subtle sexy sheerness that suits the event, the shorter hairstyle works perfectly with the halter neckline, and the ankle-strap sandals are just right. She is h2t perfect and my fave at this event.
