Ciara Dresses Up As Glamorous Version of Husband Russell Wilson at 2021 Met Gala

Ciara knows there's nothing more American than football. She chose to attend the 2021 Met Gala dressed in her husband's Seahawks jersey and even sported Russell Wilson's Super Bowl ring.

Ciara decided the best way to score a touchdown at the America-themed Met Gala was to dress up as her husband. 

For her, that idea actually is on-theme, since she's married to football star Russell Wilson, who has become a face of the American sport as the Seattle Seahawks' quarterback.

Ciara channeled her man at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday, Sept. 13, dressing in a lime green sparking dress modeled after his jersey, even bearing his No. 3. Her blingy accessories really sold it: She carried a bedazzled football clutch and wore Russell's authentic Super Bowl ring. 

"I'm a proud American," Ciara shared with Vogue, while showing off her backless gown by Peter Dundas.  

The "Level Up" singer said she has so much fun experimenting with her fashion, even though she feels she's had some misses in the past. She admitted that she looks back at her old looks and thinks, "What was I thinking?" But it's all in the name of self-expression.

Much like Ciara, her husband is also conscious of his style choices. In June, Russell launched his 3Brand kids' clothing line in New York, and Ciara brought her three kids along so that the family of five could model some lewks from his label. 

It appears the NFL star may have stayed home with the kids for the Met Gala, however, because he wasn't on her arm as she took to the red carpet.

Co-chaired by Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka, the night centers around the red, white and blue theme of "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" this year—sports references included, apparently. 

Want a peek behind the curtain? Serena Williams, Kate Hudson, Mindy Kaling and more stars kept fans updated on each of their getting ready processes before they stepped out on the red carpet.
