Ciara said she channeled her “modern woman” with her stunning metallic animal print dress for the 2022 Met Gala theme that played on the “golden age”.
NEW YORK – Ciara – R&B singer, songwriter and wife of the Denver franchise’s new quarterback – killed her red carpet look at the 2022 Met Gala in New York, telling event hosts that she channeled her “modern golden age woman” with her dress.
Ciara’s look comes courtesy of designer Michael Kors — a metallic zebra-print dress that she teamed with silver foil flares in her hair, as well as painted metallic nails.
R&B superstar Ciara is also known as Denver’s “first lady of football“, a tribute to her marriage to Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, who did not attend the headliner this year.

On the morning of the event, the famous singer shared a TikTok video on her Twitter account that had her dancing excitedly on a New York street.
The Met’s Costume Institute website describes the theme for this year’s gala as “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” or “Gilded Glamour.” The gala is part of the institute’s exhibition which opened on September 18.
In 2021, Ciara also attended the gala, without Russell, but paid tribute to her husband’s football career in a sparkling dress that played off the green and silver colors from his previous football gig with the Seattle Seahawks.
Number “3” was Russell’s jersey number with the Seahawks. She completed her killer look with a soccer ball-shaped clutch.

In addition to being a world-renowned entertainer, Ciara is a mom to 7- and 1-year-old sons, Future and Win, and 5-year-old daughter, Sienna.
The Met Gala is a fundraiser. In 2021, the evening raised more than $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute. The head-turning fashion event kicks off the annual Spring Fashion Show that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to the New York Museum.
The gala started in 1948 as a midnight society dinner, and it wasn’t even at the Met.
Fast forward over 70 years, and the Met Gala is something totally different, one of the most photographed events in the world for its head-turning red carpet.
