Ciara drew some partially unwanted attention with the low-cut, cleavage baring dress she chose to wear to sing the National Anthem at the college football National Championship game yesterday evening. ESPN’s Bonnie Bernstein tweeted, “Dear Ciara. You’re stunning. But this is a National Championship Game. Kids are watching. Cover up.” Another former ESPNer, Jason Whitlock (), echoed Bernstein’s sentiments, calling the dress “inappropriate” and stating that the game was not the right venue for “nudity.”
Dear Ciara. You're stunning. But this is a National Championship Game. Kids are watching. Cover up.

Appropriate, fair tweet. The dress was inappropriate. Her voice was more than enough. Why distract w/nudity? https://t.co/Fv93ioO7TM

Her boyfriend Russell Wilson however, was nothing short of a shining beacon of love and support tweeting, “I see you baby!! Sounded amazing & looked flawless in every way! @Ciara #NationalChampionship”
