Epic RecordsCiara will be one of the honorees at the second annual Essence Street Style Awards.
The singer from Austin, Texas will be recognized with the “Curator of Cool” award at the magazine’s dinner during Fashion Week in New York City on September 13. Essence writes, “Ciara has moved from being a chic pop star to a more aspirational red-carpet fixture — who still manages to have a little fun (backward baseball cap, anyone?).” The Grammy award winner offers these style tips: “Don’t overthink your fashion choices. Whatever you feel in your gut, roll with it. Have fun with fashion. When I have fun, it always comes out right.”
Gabrielle Union also will be honored at the event. Last year at the first Essence Street Style Awards, Diana Ross’ daughter, actress Tracee Ellis Ross from the ABC series Black-ish, received the Closet Crush Award.
