Ciara Glams Up The Cover of Paper Magazine

image

Singer Ciara is all dolled up on the latest September cover of Paper Magazine. So adorbs! She is making some bomb hair cut and color decisions lately, and the new dark do is a perfect style transition for Fall. Not to mention, a necessary separation from Baddie Bey’s new chic, blonde bob

Lately we’ve seen CiCi in a plethora of Givenchy menswear inspired looks to compliment her rapper beau Future. She tells Paper Mag:

I don’t wear a dress regularly, but even if I do, you have to put some attitude into it. I like a leather skirt, which gives you some toughness, but a feminine touch too. I like the androgynous thing with a hard edge: I make things rock ‘n’ roll — but still pretty.

Come to find out Ciara was born in Austin, TX. I had no idea! Y’all know that’s where I’m from right? Well, if you didn’t, now you do. 

In her interview, she talks about her fifth album, Ciara, in which she describes as being “tough yet pretty” and “light and upbeat…with a lot of heart and passion.” She also gives the inside scoop on her relationship with Future and how compatible they are together. That’s so sweet :)

I love Ciara’s new image and I love the opportunities she’s been taking advantage of to remain in the spotlight. But something is missing. I don’t think she seizes enough of the right moments to really make a statement to her audience. She’s a beautiful woman who is coming into her own image and style, but she’s still trying to show us who she is. Why don’t we know by now? I hope this new album, relationship, and image give her the platform to really show us what she’s got … outside of just her looks. Give me more CiCi!

I love the styling from the feature. She should definitely look back into modeling. To read the full interview you can visit the Paper Mag site here

What do you think about Ciara’s new look? Do you think she’s made the right statement or is she still just kind of “around” ? 

Fresh Look Celebrity Spotlight: Ciara

A proper makeover can do wonders for your confidence, image, and self-esteem. It takes most people a while to develop “a look” for themselves, and for celebrities it can be even more challenging. To be ridiculed in the public eye and made vulnerable like a fresh steak on a platter for critics (both amateur and professional) to constantly review, can be tough. 

Today, I wanted to focus on a positive makeover that has made me drop my jaw quite a few times. Singer Ciara not only has a new man (rapper, Future), but she has a new hairstyle to compliment her obvious happiness and banging body!

Now there aren’t too many times where I’ve seen CiCi look too shabby, but there are both fashion and beauty moments where I could tell she was transitioning into what was the right look for her. I think she’s finally nailed it! Ciara is absolutely gorgeous, and what I love most about her is ability to switch it up from tomboy to top model in a matter of dresses.

The blonde ombre-esque lob (long bob) with the face framing platinum blonde highlights, paired with her flawless bronzy skin, is über flattering on her! Keep it up Ciara! You get two thumbs up from me!

Do you think Ciara finally nailed her look?

Ciara’s Cat Eye Liner

Loved this look Ciara wore at Paris Fashion Week! That girl has been looking very pulled together and polished & I’m loving every minute of it! She gave the cat eye an edgy twist while still keeping the rest of her makeup simple … perfecto! :)

How to Find Your Most Flattering Part

I peeped this article on Allure’s site and thought it was cute & wanted to share :) The way you part your hair really can change your complete look and it’s an easy and effortless way to switch things up a little bit. Here are Allure’s rules to finding the part that flatters you best:

Side Parts

Looks best on narrow faces. If you sweep your hair to the left side, more of the right side of your face will show (obviously), creating the illusion that your face is a tad wider.

Middle Parts

Are well suited to wide faces. Framing both sides of your face symmetrically will help define your cheekbones and elongate the nose and chin.

Face Flattering Style Tip:

If you’re wearing summer’s trendy side ponytail or bun, take a look at your nose. If your nose angles to one side, no matter how subtle the curve, position your hair over the opposite shoulder.
