It wasn't just her hair that stole focus – she also looked stunning rocking a leopard print gown that featured double-slits to showcase her long, toned legs, a plunging neckline, and cut-outs across her trim waist.

Toughening up her feminine frock, the Level Up singer added a leather harness belt that wrapped around her neck and multiple gold bangles.

On Tuesday, Ciara was sporting her typical, Rapunzel-length hair for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live alongside her husband.

The duo both looked incredible in head-to-toe black ensembles, with Ciara showcasing her toned legs again in an asymmetrical dress that featured a daringly high thigh slit with lace detailing, while Russell rocked a pinstripe suit.

While there, Russell dropped a bombshell of a confession, revealing he spends a staggering $1million a year on his body and staying in shape.

When asked by Jimmy if he really drops that much cash on his appearance, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback replied: "Yeah, it's a process. It's a lifestyle. I think when you are trying to play as long as I'm trying to play. I'm trying to play until I'm 45."

When Jimmy pointed out that was still 12 years away, Russell responded: "Yeah for me the mentality, the focus level, everything you have to do has to be surrounded by that. It's been an amazing journey for me so far."

Russell – who is said to be worth a whopping $135million – doesn't have to worry about his spending habits frustrating his wife, as Ciara said she is "in it with him".
