Ciara turned heads at the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party on Sunday in a barely-there dress.
The sparkly sheer halter dress with plunging neckline was from Dundas’ fall 2023 collection and left little to the imagination, with just a black thong underneath. The “Better Thangs” singer arrived at the event alongside her husband Russell Wilson.

However, her nearly-naked look was met with backlash on social media as some debated whether it was appropriate for a married woman to show so much skin.
“I thought Ciara is married with kids? Abeg where’s her husband Russell when she wore this dress?” tweeted one person, while another asked, “What happened to having ‘class’?”

So Ciara wore this dress to the Oscar’s. But with the Oscar’s being what it is, should we be surprised? I do wonder how Russell really feels though, with seeing his wife in public like this. What happened to having “class”? 🤔😮 pic.twitter.com/ixwARvDMJr

When it comes to Russell Wilson, Ciara, and the dress, there’s a very important part that many are leaving out…
She’s not your wife and that’s not your marriage.

But Ciara is getting the last laugh. On Wednesday, she addressed her haters in a hilarious TikTok video titled “POV: How I’m Pulling up to Vanity Fair Next Year” that showed her wrapped in a white bed sheet pulled up to her neck. She models for the camera before smiling and laughing at the end.
“Selective outrage,” she captioned the clip alongside the crying emoji.

While Ciara received the brunt of the backlash, she wasn’t the only one embracing the naked dress trend. Other celebrities like Emily Ratajkowski, Hunter Schafer, and Alessandra Ambrosio also bared some skin at the Vanity Fair party.
Ciara is keeping it moving. She is set to drop her new single “Da Girls” next Friday, March 24.
