Ciara In Emilio Pucci – 2014 Grammy Awards

Ciara In Emilio Pucci - 2014 Grammy Awards

Ciara was another one of the metallic mavens at the 2014 Grammy Awards, held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (January 26).

The pregnant songstress was glowing and so, too, was this scintillating custom bronze gown by Emilio Pucci, which effectively showed off her burgeoning baby bump.

Sequinned and beaded from top to bottom with allover embellishment in the designer’s signature decorative pattern, this dress was a dazzling statement piece.

Given the complexity of the ensemble, Ciara kept her styling simple with naturally radiant makeup, a nude lip and a loosely pulled-back ’do.

Ciara In Lanvin Homme – The 2014 MusiCares Person Of The Year Gala Honoring Carole King

Ciara In Lanvin Homme - The 2014 MusiCares Person Of The Year Gala Honoring Carole King

Ciara attended the 2014 MusiCares Person Of The Year Gala honoring Carole King held at Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday (January 24) in Los Angeles, California joining Victoria Justice and Lady Gaga.

This was her first red carpet appearance since her recent pregnancy announcement.

While Kerry Washington’s recent red carpet maternity looks have been puzzling and unflattering, it’s normal service for Ciara; chic and stylish.

No stranger donning menswear, the singer wore a uber chic Lanvin Homme navy blue metallic sheen jacket featuring soft blue pinstripe with matching trousers and short-sleeve button-up shirt from the Fall 2013 collection.

She styled the look with a crystal art deco two-finger ring from Lanvin’s Pre-Fall 2014 women’s collection and patent leather Louboutin pumps.

With us seeing more and more maternity red carpet looks from Ciara, Olivia Wilde and Kerry Washington, I wonder who will come out on top for Best Maternity Style of 2014.

My money is on Ciara or Olivia. Sorry Kerry.

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.

Ciara In Prabal Gurung – 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Ciara In Prabal Gurung - 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Ciara was one of the front-row guests at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held at Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City yesterday evening.

The singer showed off her lean legs in this thigh-high-slit gown from Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2013 collection.

Her navy silk-satin gown with dolman sleeves, a cutaway back and a draped waistline was styled without the leather harness we saw on the runway; however, she added her own hardware courtesy of her Giuseppe Zanotti black-and-gold sexy strappy sandals.

Apart from looking a tad snug around the waist, this is yet another great look for Ciara.

Ciara In Calvin Klein Collection – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Ciara In Calvin Klein Collection - CFDA Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Ciara attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

As always, she has a knack of making everything she wears look uber cool.

She wore a Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2014 look consisting of a Unique vest featuring a high round neck and asymmetric folded peplum waist, with a collarless jacket slung over her shoulders.
I will have to dock her several cool points, however, for the trousers. As a fellow tall gal like Ciara, it is always a delight (relief) to find long trousers, but in this case they are way too long.

Not only are her cargo-style construction trousers with exaggerated cuffs dragging on the floor, they are also creating unsightly folds on the trouser leg.

Jennifer Fisher jewelry completed her look.

Ciara In Anthony Vaccarello – 2014 People’s Choice Awards Nominations Announcement

Ciara In Anthony Vaccarello - 2014 People’s Choice Awards Nominations Announcement 2Ciara joined Rachel Bilson at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards Nominations announcement press conference yesterday at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California.

Like Rachel, the songstress also looked to a more warm-weather look—although hers was a darker, sexier version of sultry summer wear. She certainly grabbed her fair share of stares in a super-leggy Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2014 glam-rock ensemble.

She covered up her top half in a silk shirt and long jacket, embellished with super-sized, shiny domed buttons. But she put her pins on display with a diamond-pointed black skirt that I first nearly mistook for a napkin.

Her wavy ombre bob, smoldering bronze-tinged eye makeup, and black snakeskin-embossed, lace-up booties added the final rocker-girl flourishes.

It all made for a polished, daring and just slightly irreverent statement—she pulls it off like few others could.

Ciara In Alon Livne – Moet Rose Lounge Houston

Ciara In Alon Livne - Moet Rose Lounge Houston

Ciara hosted an event held at The Hotel Derek for Moet Rose Lounge Houston in Texas yesterday evening, which no doubt doubled up as a celebration for the newly engaged star who was proposed to by her rapper beau Future on her birthday weekend.

The singer, as usual, didn’t leave much to the imagination wearing a futuristic Alon Livne Fall 2013 sheer gown with cut-outs, patent-leather sculptural details and a thigh-high slit.

From the long shot the dress appears to be held up by that neck piece, but on closer inspection the top half is a constructed second-skin tulle bodice.

While I will admit she works the hell out of this gown, I’m not a fan of the heavy Saint Laurent thick ankle-strap patent pumps. There’s more material on her pumps than there is on her dress, it seems.

A simple centre-parted updo and flawless neutral-coloured makeup complete her look.

Do you love this sexy futuristic look?
