Ciara continues her Paris takeover! We’ve already spotted the Grammy Award winning singer, fashionista and former Wilhelmina Models model at the Haider Ackermann‘s Spring/Summer 2015 collection show, out on the town wearing a Givenchy sweater here and I also spotted her at the Lanvin Spring 2015 Show.

Later tonight,Cici will attend Riccardo Tisci‘s Givenchy show.

Speaking of Givenchy, Cici was spotted leaving the house’s main offices in Paris. Most likely she was visiting her close friend and Givenchy‘s Artistic Director Riccardo Tisci and doing some final fittings for her outfit for tonight’s show.

She styled a fur lined vest from Bouchra Jarrar Couture Spring 2011 collection with blue denim skinny jeans and tan peep toe over the knee boots.


This vest was modeled at the Bouchra Jarrar Couture Spring 2011 collection show. Jarrar worked at Balenciaga for years and joined the house of Christian Lacroix in its final moments.

Below is an excerpt from an article Vogue posted in 2011.

Yet Jarrar also has an uncanny knack for designing clothes that jibe with whatever feels oh so right for the moment. For instance, she felt that this was absolutely the right time to do tailoring, bringing it to a whole generation that has learned to think of the biker jacket as its idea of a blazer. “It’s about taking the jacket, the coat, the vest—then making them stronger,” Jarrar said backstage after her show. She achieved this by cutting a long sleeveless coat in a pale army gray–green Shetland wool with a half-fur collar at the neck, or a hand-woven French tweed of silk and light-reflecting vinyl used for a jacket with a high collar, worn with bias-seamed wide pants. Elsewhere, she broke up her usual ivory/marine blue/black palette with a single splash of fuchsia, and a smattering of ivory-on-navy polka dot silks for some very pared-down evening dresses whose bias cutouts reveal yet more fabric underneath. There’s depth, you see, to everything she does.
