Popstar Ciara and her husband, NFL player Russel Wilson, have Twitter users going berserk after photos showed the “One, Two, Step” singer on the Vanity Fair Oscar Party red carpet, revealing her butt in a “barely there” dress.

Ciara posted her outfit on Instagram and received mixed reactions, most negative. It was a shimmery, fishnet-like dress showing her only wearing a thong. Her nipples weren’t showing because she had skin-colored covers on them. She topped the look with heels, black gloves and diamond earrings. The look gave classy vibes, but others found it inappropriate for the occasion (The Oscars). Little did they know, the outfit was for the afterparty with a “Barely There” theme.
the dress ciara wore was just ugly and not fitting for the Oscars. It has nothing to do with her wearing that type of dress while married, who cares!

I didn’t see any other women dressed in a see through dress. I’ll have to look for that. I would wear that at a beach party. Not the Oscar’s.

Other nay-sayers condemned the outfit because it didn’t align with the married couple’s Christian image nor Wilson’s Christian values he brought to the public light in the past.
In 2015, Wilson opened up to former San Diego Chargers player and pastor Miles McPherson about his Christian values as a guest at The Rock Church, specifically abstaining from sex while he and the singer were dating.
“God spoke to me and said, ‘I need you to lead her.’ And I was like ‘Really? Right now?’ And he goes, ‘No, I want you and need you to lead her.’ And I asked her, ‘What would you do if we took all that extra stuff off the table? And just did it Jesus’ way?'” he recalled.
The “extra stuff,” meaning sex.

The Shaderoom also posted a photo of the two seemingly in church worshipping in 2021, which many people liked. However, Ciara’s Oscar Party dress left a sour taste in some people’s mouths.
For Ciara to want to marry a Christian man who is very religious, her wearing that dress shows how she is promoting lust which is a sin in the good Bible. Russell married a sinful woman but that’s on him. He’s a prime simp

Ciara and Russell supposed to be good Christian folk nobody outraged at the fit we just pointing out the hypocrisy in her having her ass cheeks out in public

Ciara played the christian lady for the ring, got the ring & now she is being herself. W for her & L for russell. Christian men are a perfect target for an old retired ho3. When nobody else will THEY WILL forgive her past. She played born again, but the ho3 in her never died.

Critics also called her out for being a mother and a wife who chose to dress “single.”
Having 3 kids and a husband then deciding “yea let me just start embracing sexuality” is kinda wild. Ciara definitely missed that train arguing with Rihanna. Too late to be showing your ass and your music not selling.

Ciara’s fans came to her defense, letting people know she’s married to a supportive and loving husband and has the right to keep it sexy for him, publicly or privately.
And russel will remain the best husband and Ciara will still be happy and dress however tf she wants

Black Men want to see Ciara get cheated on or divorced so bad 🤣 how dare she have a kid and end up married that’s not what Kevin Samuels said happens to baby mamas. 😢Her husband just has to be upset she dressed in a bare nude dress when that was literally the theme 😭

Y’all have been talking about Ciara’s dress like Russell didn’t see it when she decided that’s what she was going to wear??? Hell, he probably helped her put it on.
Please give it a rest.
