Ciara is looking like a million bucks and some in her very first Vogue cover and it is on the Arabian edition’s February issue. The magazine features the Level Up singer striking a pose alongside two stallions belonging to UAE Royal HH Sheikha Fatima Rashed Al Maktoum.
Editor in Chief, Manuel Arnaut said, “The editorial with Grammy award-winner Ciara represents everything that I believe fashion should be. It upholds poetry and fantasy and appears sprinkled with that magic dust that makes you fly to the distant corners of the imagination. It’s one of the biggest productions we have put together.”
She donned a bohemian Saint Laurent dress and an Alexandre Vauthier hat as she conquered her fear of horses for the glamorous shot.
According to him, the publication’s collaboration with Ciara was most positive. “Getting to know Ciara, who I’ve been listening to since I was a teenager, was a refreshing surprise. Unlike many stars of her caliber, she is an absolute pleasure to work with, proving that even with millions of fans and album sales, you can keep your feet on the ground,” Arnaut continued.
In the cover story, the singer spoke about her new music. “I’m super excited and my vision for this project is to inject love into the world with dance,” she explained about the project she crafted while pregnant with her second child. “There was something really special about that. Being a mother of two made me feel even more confident, inspired, and fearless.”
