10 years ago, an album simply titled “Goodies” was released that included a plethora of amazing R&B hits and an array of candy colored velour track-suits. Fast forward to 2014, and Ciara is still relevant today– thankfully, she has dropped the matching sweats for pieces that are little bit more couture. Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci considers her as part of his #family and she’s become a reoccurring figure on the front row scene. One look at her Instagram and you’ll mistake the self-made recording artist for a pampered billionaire’s daughter that mingles with the royals. It’s time for Ciara’s 2005 Teen Vogue cover to finish style school and graduate to Vogue, because lets face it, Ciara is the real deal.

Like any other fashion darling, a front row presence is essential to sealing the deal. Miss Ciara is not too shabby considering she’s sat front row at the Givenchy show multiple years in a row. Her relationship with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci is far more than air kisses — he considers her part of his #family. The #family that also includes Vogue cover star Kim Kardashian.
Exhibit B: She’s got Ralph Lauren’s approval.

Remember how jealous you were that you weren’t there? Well Ciara was, and she was wearing a custom Polo top, name embossed of course.

Models Joan Smalls and Cara Delevingne, artist Marina Abramovic, jewelry designer Jennifer Fisher, and Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, just to name a few. Ciara mingles with some of hottest names in fashion and art. They all can’t get enough of her goodies.

Lets face it, Ciara was blessed with a body of a goddess that any designer would be crazy not to throw gowns at. Ciara can look fresh in a potato sack… which I’m sure Margiela would gladly provide.
