Ashanti modeled a gold chain-embellished black dress with matching sandals for Instagram that fans loved.

The star wore a black bodycon dress by Mugler with a scooping neckline embellished with gold chains. The black dress featured intense cutout detailing on the hips and on the side. The little black dress is ruched slightly, giving it a distressed feel.

The side is revealing, showing off the singer’s skin while offering up a bit of drama. Ashanti takes things up a notch with chain detailing around her neck and throughout the sides and skirt of her dress, draping over her body.

Amping up the glam, Ashanti dons large gold hoops to match the gold chain detailing on the dress. The star’s hair was styled down in face-framing waves and her makeup neutral, save for a pop of color on the lips. It’s a winning look, made possible by dramatic chains and interesting cutouts.

As far as footwear goes, the singer stepped into black strappy heels with gold detailing on the straps and heel. The Tom Ford sandals were adorned with gold charms, including the signature padlock, that make the shoe all the better. The gold in the shoes perfectly matched the gold chains throughout the dress, creating a cohesive outfit.
