Ciara’s outfit was a stylish take on the corsetry trend sweeping the fashion industry right now. Her dress was a clever nod to Dolce & Gabbana’s legacy, as the duo’s brand was one of the first to popularize the style in the ’90s alongside designers like Vivienne Westwood, Thierry Mugler and Jean. Paul Gaultier. In recent years, traditional corset and bustier silhouettes have returned to fashion, with vintage pieces from brands like Westwood becoming staple items. However, a range of other brands like Alaïa, Rosie Assoulin, LaQuan Smith, and Dion Lee have released their own unique versions of the Victorian style, which adds an air of vintage romance to any ensemble.

When it comes to fashion, Ciara always goes for daring looks. The singer can often be seen in dresses, gowns and jumpsuits with bright prints, elegant textures and vibrant colors by labels like Tom Ford, Alexandre Vauthier, Dundas, David Koma, and more. Her shoe wardrobe incorporates bold styles with high heels and strappy silhouettes from top brands like Zanotti, Femme and Stuart Weitzman. She’s also known to favor tall boots from Prada and Lesilla, and can often be seen in Converse sneakers during off hours.
