Russell Wilson has some pull in Seattle, and he used it to rent out the Space Needle as a lavish birthday surprise for his wife, Ciara!

Ciara spent her 36th birthday at the top of the Space Needle with her husband, Russell Wilson. But this wasn’t an ordinary trip to the top of the Seattle hotspot — because it was completely rented out just for the two of them! Ciara shared a video of the stunning surprise, as she made her way through the giant room, which was decorated just for her. The room was filled with flowers and candles, and of course, the gorgeous view of the city in the background. Ciara took a tour of the entire floor, which was also covered in dozens of balloons.

As the singer walked through her private event, she was in awe, and continually raved over how “pretty” everything was. In the Instagram caption for the video, Ciara gushed over her husband for putting the surprise together. “Wow babe, thank you for loving me the way you do!” she wrote. “I didn’t have much growing up, but I can say I had a lot of love. That feeling made me feel like I could conquer the world. That’s how you make me feel. Like a little girl all over again. I love you so much!”

Meanwhile, Russell posted an equally sweet message about his lady in honor of her big day. “Perfect in every way,” he wrote, while sharing photos of Ciara through the years. “God made you for me. He made you to fit perfectly in my arms. Made you to be the amazing woman and mother you are. God made you to entertain the world with your gift to sing & dance! He gifted you with the ability to tilt the room…when you walk in ALL the furniture slides towards you. He gifted you with the ability to smile and bring joy to ALL things. Gifted you with the ability to love. Happy birthday my queen.”

In response, Ciara commented on the tribute. “Awe baby. You are my everything!” she said. “Thank you for making me feel special today, and everyday. I am a better woman because of you! I love you so much!” Russell may be the Seattle Seahawks’ star football player, but it can’t be an easy feat to rent out the entire top of the Space Needle! Anything for his woman, though, of course!

Ciara and Russell started dating at the beginning of 2015 and were engaged just over a year later in March 2016. It was a quick engagement for the pair, as they tied the knot less than four months later in July. Their daughter, Sienna, was born in April 2017, followed by a son, Win, in July 2020. Ciara also has a son, Future Jr., with her ex-fiance, Future.

Simone Biles Rocks A Floral Bikini & Strikes A Pose On The Beach

The Olympic gymnast soaked in some sun, as she waded into the ocean for a nice, relaxing day on the shore.

There’s nothing like some summer sun at the end of autumn! While winter may be approaching, Simone Biles had a relaxing beach day on Tuesday November 30. The Olympic gold medalist posted a stunning beach photo, as she looked gorgeous in a white and pink bikini. She looked incredibly at ease to be taking in some warm weather and wading into the shallow water at the ocean’s edge.

The photo showed Simone basking in the sun, with her back to the camera. The bikini that she wore was white with pink flowers all over it. The caption showed how much she was enjoying catching some sun rays. “Never met a beach I didn’t like,” she captioned the picture. She also posted a photo of the off-shoulder bikini’s front on her Instagram Story, and it seemed like she was sitting on a boat in the sexy selfie. “Give it up for the front of this suit,” the 24-year-old star athlete wrote on her Story.

It’s nice to see Simone catching some sun and relaxing. It’s been an eventful year for the gymnast, especially with the Tokyo Olympics taking place this year. She won a silver medal with her team and a bronze for the balance beam at the 2021 games. Simone notably withdrew from some of the Olympic contests to focus on her mental health. She also testified in former Team USA Olympic Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse case in July 2021, and tearfully recalled being abused by the physician. She opened up about how she felt she should’ve withdrawn from the Olympics long before she did in Tokyo in a September interview with New York Magazine. ““I should have quit way before Tokyo [Olympics] when Larry Nassar was in the media for two years,” she said. “But I was not going to let him take something I’ve worked for since I was six-years-old. I wasn’t going to let him take that joy away from me. So I pushed past that for as long as my mind and my body would let me.”

#VirgilWasHere Louis Vuitton Artfully Honors Virgil Abloh At Star-Studded Miami Show

Virgil Abloh was memorialized in Miami Tuesday during a star-studded Louis Vuitton show that went on as scheduled per the late designer and his family’s wishes.

Abloh’s Spring-Summer 2022 collection was debuted during the presentation that took place on an elevated platform built outside the Brutalist Miami Marine Stadium.

Several celebs were in attendance for the show including estranged spouses/Virgil’s close friends Kim and Kanye who sat front row alongside their daughter North.

Also spotted were Quavo, Kid Cudi, and Offset who modeled in the presentation…

Gunna…

and Pharrell Williams.

During the show, Virgil was honored in several ways including via a monumental statue…

and via a hot-air balloon and paper planes that tied into one of Virgil’s ideologies.

His creative collaborator Anders Christian Madsen noted that the designer wanted people to liberate themselves from “the prejudices society puts in our heads growing up.”

“He wanted to imagine he could fly,” said Madsen.

“Paper planes and balloons were symbols of the ideology Virgil referred to as “boyhood”: childhood objects loaded with ideas of possibility, opportunity, and hope. “Limitations,” he once wrote to me, “are manmade.” He literally didn’t believe in impossibility. Before our meetings, he’d ask me to read everything from Kierkegaard to Mann and Berger,” wrote the creative collaborator on Instagram.

Virgil wanted people to stop treating each other according to how they look, or where they grew up, or what their job is. He truly and purely approached the world like that. He’d often ask me to open his texts with words like “imagine” or “picture” or “what if.”

 

The show closed with the late designer’s voice as he read a quote about making the best of the brevity of life.

“There’s no limit … ,” Abloh was heard saying. “Life is so short that you can’t waste even a day subscribing to what someone thinks you can do versus knowing what you can do.”

 

“Virgil Was Here” was then illuminated in the sky.

 

 

R.I.P. Virgil Abloh.

1. Jill Was A Victoria’s Secret Model

Born in Texas and raised in Colorado, Jill started off her career as a model for the lingerie company Victoria’s Secret in the 1980s and early 90s. Along with model Stephanie Seymour, Jill helped bring recognition to the new upstart, which went from a small brand to a global trendsetter in women’s wear. She would go on to model in several of Harry’s music videos as well.

2. Jill Almost Caused Harry To ‘Drown’ When They First Met

Harry revealed he first met his future wife when they were both staying at the same resort in the early 90s. During an interview on Live With Regis And Kelly, the musician said he was swimming in the lodge’s pool when Jill happened to walk past him. Harry was so awestruck by her beauty, he joked that he “almost drowned.” Quickly regaining his wits, Harry said he jumped out of the pool and asked her out on a lunch date. And the rest is history!

3. Jill Got Stuck In A Bank With Chandler On ‘Friends’

Friends superfans will remember Jill in an early episode of the famous sitcom. Playing herself, Jill got trapped in an ATM vestibule with Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) during an electrical blackout in NYC. Chandler was obviously thrilled to be stuck alongside a Victoria’s Secret model. He was so excited that he choked on a piece of gum and was rescued by Jill and her Heimlich maneuver.
