PHOTO: INSTAGRAM / CIARA
It was your average Wednesday evening, scrolling through Instagram when singer Ciara posted a picture from her wedding to NFL player Russell Wilson. Ciara sang that poppy R&B song 1,2 Step, and we literally haven't thought about her since, but DAMN her dress was beyond.
LOOK AT THIS DRESS. The lace. The bell sleeves. The corset. We'll let you spend some time on that photo.
Naturally, users on Twitter immediately started tweeting about the wedding —not to congratulate the couple, no — to dissect the dress.

Ciara and Wilson, both 27, were married in a castle located in Cheshire, UK, surrounded by 100 of their family and friends. Ciara's dress was designed by Roberto Cavalli, while her bridesmaids — all nine of them — wore dresses custom-made by Michael Costello.
Costello told about his involvement in the wedding, saying the bridesmaids' dresses were created specifically with each bridesmaid's personality in thought.
"I loved working on this with Ciara, and all her girls. It was a pleasure to be a part of her special day with Russell," Costello said.
"Every girl's individual style is implemented in the design of their dress as well as their personality. Ciara made sure of that."
Ciara and Wilson have been together since April 2015 and got engaged in March. We're very happy for the couple, both for getting married and for letting this exquisite dress exist. Well done, you two.
