Ciara and Pop icon, Janet Jackson, looked every bit like elegant queens in recent pictures. The two music celebrities were recently pictured in matching dresses as Ciara presented Jackson an award.


In the photo shared by Ciara, both women rocked black evening dresses. Ciara’s was a bejeweled Balmain creation that stopped well above her thighs and boasted of a feathery train.


Jackson chose an elaborate Christian Siriano piece made from a see-through material that featured floral motifs, but the “Rhythm Nation” singer drew more eyes with her hair than her outfit.


Ciara’s caption accompanying the post was a tribute to the woman she has always looked up to:

“It was truly an Honor presenting the Rockstar Award to my Friend, Icon, and Legend @JanetJackson. Forever cherishing these moments. @BlackGirlsRock #BlackGirlsRock”

Only three months ago, the “Level Up” singer gushed over her idol:

“Janet to me is one of the most valuable artists of all time. Everything she does is perfection. It says a lot to me. It says you gotta care. You gotta give 100% everytime. You gotta show up every time.”


Ciara continued:

“She is queen of creating those iconic moments that we still talk about today. …She has been a huge influence in my life.”

The Rockstar Award presented to Jackson “celebrates fierce, fearless ‘sheroes’ in music who have successfully pushed the envelope and carved a niche where other artists not only take note but dutifully follow her lead.”

Organizers of the Awards further affirm that the initiative:

“honors the groundbreaking achievements of Black women who have fearlessly broken barriers in the areas of art, business, entertainment and community service.”

The event, which held on Sunday at the NJ Performing Arts Center, was hosted by Queen Latifah. Other women recognized include supermodel Naomi Campbell, #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, singing sensation Mary J. Blige, and award-winning writer Lena Waithe.
