Happy 44th birthday, Shakira! Your unique sense of style has left us in awe for over two decades. Let’s delve into your fashion evolution. In 2000, you looked stunning in a red wrap dress with long blonde curls after winning a Latin Grammy. You were already making waves in Latin America while getting ready to conquer the U.S. market. As the early 2000s rolled around, you experimented with various styles, sporting a short asymmetrical blonde bob and donning a fishnet and denim outfit for your appearance on VH1’s “Divas Las Vegas” in 2002. By then, you had released your first English album “Laundry Service” and captured the hearts of Americans with your hit single “Whenever, Wherever.”

Shakira, the famous Colombian pop star, was known for her sultry style during her “Mangosta” tour in 2003, complete with wavy locks and midriff-baring outfits. Her iconic look was fully embraced in 2005 with the release of her hit song “Hips Don’t Lie,” featuring Wyclef Jean. In the music video, she donned a tiered orange satin skirt and matching T-shirt tied around her waist, showcasing her incredible hip-shaking skills that left fans mesmerized.

Although she dazzled in flashy music videos, Shakira proved to be a fashion icon on the red carpet as well. At the 2008 ALMA Awards, she looked stunning in a strapless black gown with a zip-up front and an oversized statement belt. While she typically rocked her signature blonde curls for most events, she opted for long, soft waves when she met future President Barack Obama in 2009 at the “We Are One: Opening Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial” in Washington D.C. This new hairstyle suited her well, as she wore a similar style in August of the same year while attending the MTV Video Music Awards. She wowed everyone with a black and silver sleeveless mini dress paired with knee-high boots.

Shakira, the famous singer and dancer, made a memorable appearance during the halftime show of the NFL Super Bowl LIV in February 2020. She is currently in a long-term relationship with Gerard Pique, a Barcelona Football Club star, and they have two sons together. Shakira is well-known for her stunning figure, which she often shows off in colorful outfits at various events, including the 2014 FIFA World Cup closing ceremony held in Rio de Janeiro. However, it was her performance with Jennifer Lopez during the Super Bowl that left an unforgettable impression on over a hundred million viewers. Shakira’s six-minute set of her most significant hits, starting with a red, belly-baring outfit with a fringe miniskirt, was truly mesmerizing. Later, JLo joined her, and they both closed the show with sparkling metallic outfits. Shakira looked stunning in a gold bodysuit with fringes on her hips and a keyhole opening revealing her abs. Her elaborate jacket emphasized her golden girl status. For more of Shakira’s best looks over the past two decades, check out our gallery.
