Ciara Stands Up to Trolls Who Opposed Her Bold Take on Naked Dress Trend

The singer-songwriter responded to backlash about her Oscars after-party outfit.


Ciara stole the show with the crystal-embellished Peter Dundas net dress she wore to Vanity Fair’s Oscars after-party on March 12. The bold and sheer look was paired with nothing but a black thong underneath.

While most observers expressed awe over the showstopping look on Ciara’s Instagram post of the ensemble, she also received plenty of negative feedback regarding her interpretation of the naked dress trend.

The one-time SI Swimsuit model clapped back at her haters in the classiest way possible—with a TikTok video showing her great sense of humor.

“POV: How I’m pulling up to Vanity Fair next year 😂,” read the on-screen text.

The “Better Thangs” singer, covered in a white sheet, strutted forward, mimicking walking the red carpet. She accessorized with a pair of sunglasses and backtracked her clip to the sound of paparazzi photographers shouting out requests for particular angles.

“Selective outrage 😭,” she captioned her post.

“Ciara reminding the masses, that she’s that girl, always been that girl and will forever be THAT GIRL!” a fan gushed in the comments. “My Queen purrrr 💅🏾 🤟🏾.”

“Haters gonna hate,” someone else added. “You looked beautiful 🤎🤎.”

“Get em Cici... People tripping for no reason. you looked absolutely amazing,” another person concurred.

“This the best response ever 😂😂,” another follower wrote.
