Corrections and Clarifications: A previous version of this story misstated Peyton Manning's Super Bowls. He has won two.

Ciara embraced this year's Met Gala theme of "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" channeling Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, because what's more American than football?

The singer, who has been married to Wilson since 2016, donned a green, backless gown with the No. 3 inspired by Wilson's jersey paired with his Super Bowl XLVIII ring from the 2013 NFL season and a clutch purse in the shape of a football.

With a solid start to the NFL season after a 28-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Wilson was not present on the red carpet Monday night but was represented well.

Peyton and Eli Manning had on Wilson as a guest during their alternate simulcast of "Monday Night Football" on ESPN2 and ESPN+.

"She's rocking the jersey there," Wilson said as his wife was shown on the screen.

"[Ciara's] got a ring that I wanted... I didn't get it," said Peyton, who won two Super Bowls during his Hall of Fame career but lost to Wilson's Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII when he was with the Broncos.

"Well, I [want] a ring that Tom [Brady] has... I need to go get, too," said Wilson, who won a title but lost to Brady's Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX.
