Ciara Bares Her Banging Body for GQ

Ciara

Ciara is bringing her “Body Party” to the pages of GQ. Future’s fiancée flaunts her smoking-hot body in a series of provocative photos for the men’s magazine. In the black-and-white images shot by Gomillion & Leupold, the 28-year-old singer sports a fishnet top with nothing underneath, clenching her breasts with her hands. She shows off her glistening legs and exposes some boob in a white crop top and cutoff denim shorts.

In the interview, CiCi chats about her new single “Overdose” and offers some dancing and style tips to the fellas.

On “Overdose”: “The song’s got a throwback ’80s vibe with a modern twist; I think that’s unexpected. It’s more a product of my experimentation—it has a vintage-y feel, but I feel like everyone can love it.”

On dancing: “Go with the flow; don’t overthink it. If you’re a head-nod kind of guy, nod your head. If you’re a guy who likes to coast out and rock or sway, just do that. Whatever you do, don’t get out there and try do something you haven’t practiced. Do what shows your style and vibe—let me catch that without you trying to show me anything.”

On her style advice for guys: “I love when people have their own creative vision, when a person stands out and tries different things. I also think less is more. A T-shirt and some Balmain jeans or even just simple jeans can still look nice—it can be powerful, too.”
