Sweatsuits are known as a lot of things: slouchy, comfortable, cozy — but “high fashion” doesn’t typically come to mind.
Ciara, however, elevated the humble sweatsuit to chic heights yesterday, heading out to a meeting in Los Angeles in a super sparkly look with soaring heels.
The “1,2 Step” singer wore a zip-up hoodie and matching pants, both in light gray, from Thom Browne. The set, now sold out, glistened with all-over crystal embroidery.
For footwear, the mom of two went with Christian Louboutin’s “So Kate” pump, beloved for its near vertical heel that helps create a jaw-dropping, smooth stride. The pumps boast a patent leather upper, a 4.7-inch stiletto heel and Louboutin’s iconic red sole. The shoes are available for purchase ($695) on Nordstrom.com.
Speaking with FN at the ACE Awards last month, where she nabbed the Style Icon Award, Ciara discussed the possibility of starting her own fashion label.
“I have plans to do a lot in the fashion space,” she said. It’s all about timing, but I have been taking meetings, getting mood boards together. When the time is right, things will roll out. I can’t wait to get my feet wet and start expressing myself through clothing and fashion.”
The A-lister has the tools to succeed in business, having graduated in June from the prestigious Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program at Harvard University.
