She rocks a stunning Reem Acra bridal gown on our August/September cover, but that's not the only wedding-worthy look Ciara has worn before. The singer, who's been engaged to rapper Future since October and recently gave birth to her first son Future Jr., has a penchant for stepping out in dresses and outfits that are fit for a bride-to-be.
From a daring feather-and-crystal-strewn sheer mermaid Givenchy Couture gown to a glistening gold Emilio Pucci dress she wore to this year's Grammy's to a more covered-up ruched ivory long-sleeve sheath also by Givenchy, our cover girl has unknowingly tried several bridal trends on the red carpet.
Fellow style-savvy engaged girls should take note of the star's more understated, day-to-day looks, too. The embroidered red-and-white Naeem Khan caftan she wore to her own baby shower would be perfect for a casual beach wedding. And during a trip to Milan with her future husband, Ciara killed it in a cream fur coat, paired with a white shift dress and matching pumps — a look fit for a glamour girl's engagement celebration or after party. Looking for something a bit more fashion forward for your rehearsal dinner? You'll love the fierce white-on-white Calvin Klein Collection pantsuit she wore to the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards.
Whether you need engagement party, bachelorette party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or wedding dress inspiration, we recommend drawing some ideas from Ciara's portfolio of pretty, statement-making bridal-esque looks.
