Ciara in ELLE Magazine - January 2009

Beyonce may have landed the cover but Ciara definitely got the more interesting spread inside January's wafer thin issue of ELLE magazine.

It seemed a little odd to me for the issue to feature two pop/r&b divas but I guess ELLE wanted to kill two birds with one stone without actually resorting to hiring a black model. Poor Ciara didn't even merit a mention on the cover.

Here she models pieces from MaxMara's new collection. I could have gone my whole life without seeing that purple jumpsuit. Seriously some of this stuff looks like it was fashioned together using what fell on the floor in Jim Henson's Muppet studio.

I like the 2nd and 5th pics the best, and I like the purple jumpsuit because it looks/feels very 1986 :) (I'm a sucker for just about anything that looks or sounds like a throwback to the eighties.)

I can take the purple jumpsuit. It's the colored hair additions that turn me off. Aren't those things old news yet?

Firstly, she has no emotion in her eyes.
Second of all, she looks stiff.
Thirdly, she looks like that drag queen trying to have fun with the whole couture thing.

I don't think Ciara has what it takes to pull of high fashion

I think Ciara looks great though in the first two photos and I love both outfits in them.

Personally if I wore that black coat she is wearing I would top it off with my gorgeous diamond necklace I bought from and then the look would be complete and more chic!

Definitely not into the purple fabric!

It's a shame that real models who are extremely good at their jobs lose work to celebrities who want to fulfill a childhood dream or a passing fancy (ex. Kanye West as intern at Louis Vuitton).

I know she's trying but those pictures look amateurish.

amateurish is giving these pictures too much credit; she looks HORRIBLE and the pictures are BAD.

Like a man indeed ciara, like a man.

Jourdan Dunn & Chanel Iman have a 10+ page editorial in US Vogue, Jan 2009.

And Chanel Iman has a 10+ page of editorial in US Harper's Bazaar, Jan 2009 too.

If you don't have them, I can scan them for you next week.
