Ciara confirmed the rumors that she’s dating New York Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire at this week’s Met Gala (May 2). The duo was snapped leaving The Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room dressed to the nines, with him suited up in a bow-tie and her in a '70s chic animal-print jumpsuit. Ciara admitted to Insider anchor Kevin Frazier, “Yes, we are a couple.” But even before her romance confirmation, we noticed their style symmetry.
From birthdays, basketball games and even galas, these two have popped up in pictures in outfits that are in sync (none of that "she’s extra dressed up while he’s looking like it’s time for the gym" business—ahem, Jay and Bey). Last night, Ciara wore a flirty chiffon dress and Christian Louboutin heels to be honored at the Candies Foundation "Event to Prevent" benefit gala in New York and Stoudemire was by her side in a sharp suit. They’ve appeared relaxed, too: He did trendy jeans and shades while she wore a denim House of Holland X Levi denim dress to Lala Vazquez’s party back in June.
It remains to be seen whether or not this former Givenchy muse and future Rachel Roy co-designer’s love for each other will stand the test of time, but whether they’re dressing sporty or swanky, their love for fashion makes them an attractive pair.
