The songstress, 36, was a sight to behold in a sizzling black mini dress with cut-outs showcasing her toned torso and long legs as she posed up a storm at the Hard Rock Hotel Time Square in New York on Thursday. 

Ciara worked a wet hair look that was slicked back into an updo with a few loose tendrils cascading in front of her face.

She smoldered for the camera with an edgy shade of smoky eye shadow and a slick of clear lip gloss accenting her pout.

Ciara put on a fiery display as she posed up a storm in her sexy, all-black look.

The dress hugged every inch of her fabulous body while showing off a black bra and plenty of skin. 

Taking the glam to a whole new level, she accessorized the look with glittering earrings, an array of bracelets, and of course her massive wedding rings from husband Russell Wilson.

‘The journey we’ve been on – to break out of the mold the world put us in – may sound familiar. It’s certainly familiar to the women we’ve chosen to be our cover models: Maye, Ciara, Yumi, Kim,’ MJ Day, editor in chief of SI Swimsuit, said in a statement.

In addition to the four cover stars, the issue will celebrate 28 powerful women including WNBA stars Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart, newcomers Duckie Thot, Kamie Crawford, and Olivia Ponton, and former cover models Camille Kostek, Leyna Bloom, and Kate Bock.

Musk – the mother of billionaire Tesla and SpaceX founder, Elon – has been a model for more than 50 years now, appearing in campaigns for magazines like Time, New York Magazine, Elle Canada, Women’s Day, and Vogue, and posing for brands like Special K, Revlon, and Target.

She starred in Beyoncé’s music video for her hit song Haunted in 2013, and made history in 2017, when she became CoverGirl’s oldest spokesmodel at age 69.

She also wrote her own memoir in 2019, called A Woman Makes a Plan: Advice for a Lifetime of Adventure, Beauty, and Success.

Ciara, who was famously behind songs like One, Two Step, Level Up, and Body Part, has now sold 23 million records worldwide.

She has also tried her hand at modeling, acting, producing, and designing over the years – and dedicates much of her time to giving back.

Nu, 36, a Japanese and Dutch recording artist, became the first-ever Asian plus-size model to be featured in SI Swim as a rookie last year – and it launched a huge modeling career for her.
