Fans were left fawning Tuesday when Ciara uploaded a very brief video wearing very little clothing.
The singer posed in a nude-colored catsuit that was studded in crystals all over. Sitting in a rocky, dirt-covered area, Ciara gazed toward the camera in an oversized hat that provided more coverage for her body than the catsuit offered. The whole look was pulled together by wardrobe stylist Maeve Reilly.
No caption was needed in the seconds-long footage as fans were left to their own devices and promptly began pouring out with caption-worthy remarks.
“Make Sure Your Wigs Are Secured”
“Cinnamon Toast Crunch is SHOOK. just add milk. we got the money.”
“Sexiest CiCi look ever.”
“I STAN THE PRETTIEST THERE IS! PERIOD! NOTHING ELSE NEEDS TO BE SAID! BISH I JUST SUBMITTED THE NEXT STEPS ON A JOB APP! THIS TOLD ME IMA GET IT! GLOW FAVE! 💕😍”
“Love this hunnie! You betta 🙌🏽”
“I’m sorry but you slay the girls!!! You never cease to amaze us!!! #BlackGirlsRock #BeautfiulMelanin”
And that wasn’t all. Ciara shared another image from the hush-hush shoot to her Instagram Story, which can be seen above.
It’s far from the first time the “Set” singer has bared herself in front of the camera. But in one of the last instances of near-total nudity, Ciara wasn’t praised nearly this much.
When she posted a nude photo to Instagram ahead of the release of her latest album “Beauty Marks” in May, the singer was bashed for wearing only Nike hightops and nothing else. Many of the remarks slammed the Christian star, who is a mother of two and married to fellow devout Christian Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
“Love You Ciara, just not sure what you’re selling. You don’t have to be naked to sell your music and as a married woman and a woman of God. It’s just not necessary.”
“I like you but Why you gotta be naked?Im sure your kids must be so proud🤦🏽♀️”
“For real I would be embarrassed if I was her husband. Whole team seen his wife pretty much naked. It’s disrespectful. Even if he’s not complaining no man is comfortable with that.”
However, there were some fans who sprang to her defense.
“It’s symbolic…she’s saying she’s showing you everything on this album. I see not a cooch or nipple…it’s art. Let her be. Models, which she is…do this all the time. I don’t see you messaging them and telling them to put clothes on. Stop casting stones when y’all probably do way more,” one fan remarked.
