Ciara in Elie Saab at the 2015 ESPYS

Posted on July 16, 2015

More often than not, an ombre effect tends to leave us pretty cold. We don’t dislike ombre, but we never seem to fall in love with it the way the style and beauty world does every five years or so.

But this is really pretty and sophisticated:

Maybe because it’s so subtle or because the color portion is muted and understated. Maybe it’s because she’s gorgeous and it sets off the glow of her skin fantastically. It can’t be because of the design of the dress, which is pretty basic. And we flat-out think the pink belt was a mistake. Plus the slit runs too high and the shoes have been done to death.

But damn if she doesn’t look gorgeous and if that ombre doesn’t just push our buttons somehow.
