The singer’s favorite outfit from the shoot? The slinky black David Koma look. “It was very comfortable,” Ciara says. “I loved how it fit my body; I felt sexy in it.” She also loved the more daring ensembles, like the crystal top and pants by Retrofête, punctuated with a white feather Atelier Biser coat. “That was like, ‘It’s showtime baby.’ I felt like a rockstar in it,” she says. Ciara and Senofonte had fun DIY’ing certain pieces as well, such as the MXM durag that they customized. “Marni added all of these earrings to it,” says Ciara.
While the star admits that all of these ensembles were bolder than her day-to-day looks, she says she has been upping the ante for her off-duty style too. “As a first-time mom, I shopped more in the maternity section, but now I’ve just adjusted my sizes [with non-maternity clothes],” she says. Still, she incorporates maternity basics into her wardrobe—a must. “A classic legging that supports your bump is always the best to have,” she says. “I have a stash of those things.”
Looking back on the photos now, Ciara knows she slayed with her wardrobe—but she’s even happier to have a visual keepsake of her fourth pregnancy. “This is a celebration of such a special time,” she says. “These are photos that I’ll have forever.” She’s most looking forward to adding to their household. “To add another bundle of joy to the pack is going to be really fun and adventurous—and a little chaotic,” she says. “But I’m looking forward to it all.”
