Ciara's Black Dress at the VMAs Was Made Infinitely Sexier by Lace Inserts and a Diagonal Cutout

While Ciara might have had a busy week sitting front row at New York Fashion Week, she certainly didn't forget about the VMAs. The artist was there to introduce Normani ahead of her epic performance of "Wild Side." She chose a long-sleeved black dress for the show, but make no mistake, it wasn't an ordinary LBD — the lace inserts and cutout across the chest made it a classically sexy Ciara look.

Styled by Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, the singer's sleek Tom Ford dress was layered over Commando briefs and complete with Yeprem jewels and Femme LA shoes. And in case you were wondering, the exact dress is available to purchase . . . for a cool $28,900, if you're interested. See Ciara's gown from all angles ahead.
