Baseball is America’s pastime, but football is king in the country right now.

Ciara understood the assignment at the with Gala Monday night, themed “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”

The singer showed up at the New York City prom in a lime green sequined dress, inspired by her husband, Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson. Ciara wore his jersey number (No. 3)—and his Super Bowl XLVIII ring—when Seattle defeated Denver 43-8 in February 2014.

“My Hubby’s Seahawks jersey in color transformed into a dress + His Super Bowl XLVIII ring = EVERYTHING!” Ciara wrote in a post on Instagram, alongside a collage of red carpet photos at the Met.

Wilson, who did not attend the annual gala, commented, “My queen. My everything.” The star QB gears up for Week 2, when Seattle hosts Tennessee looking to get off to a 2-0 start after beating Indianapolis in their opener on Sunday.

Ciara’s custom dress was designed by Peter Dundas and is also inspired by Geoffrey Beene’s jersey dress — a sequined design that emulates a 1960s Minnesota Vikings jersey.

Her look featured side cutouts, exaggerated shoulders and an open back. She wore a dazzled football clutch and wore her long, blond-brown hair in a voluminous ponytail. Ciara’s hairstylist César DeLeön Ramîrez (aka cesar4styles on Instagram) used products from Paul Mitchell and The Wild Form.

Dundas also dressed Ciara in a tailored cut dress at the 2019 Met Gala. The emerald embellished design included matching gloves, a belt and choker, along with a feathered train.

Ciara was in the Big Apple to attend other events leading up to the Met Gala, including the MTV VMAs in Brooklyn, where she showcased Normani’s sultry performance. The mother of three stunned in a black lace dress during the awards ceremony.
