Renowned songstress Shakira has mastered the art of flaunting alluring braless outfits that leave admirers breathless. While she tends to maintain a more modest approach to her wardrobe compared to many other artists, she effortlessly showcases her remarkable physique through her choice of attire.
In her earlier music videos, the Colombian-born singer embraced more revealing ensembles. However, by 2009, she embarked on a journey of self-discovery, choosing to let her talent take center stage as she embraced her womanhood.
During an interview with The Guardian in 2009, Shakira shared her evolving perception of herself, stating, “Every day now I discover something new. I go through phases where I feel more connected to my feminine side, in ways I never thought possible. I allow the woman within me to express herself, to let her desires resonate as loudly as they can.”
When asked if her striking appearance influenced her career, Shakira humbly responded, “Well, some of my favorite singers in the world weren’t necessarily the epitome of beauty. Pavarotti wasn’t exactly in the best shape. But, you’re right, he was a man, so he could get away with it. But look, beauty is definitely a valuable ingredient if used wisely. It should be a part of the overall recipe. However, it shouldn’t be the sole focus. Flavor is essential. Flavor and comfort. When beauty is one-dimensional, it quickly loses its appeal.”
In contrast to some celebrities, Shakira’s Instagram feed is not inundated with bikini selfies or revealing outfits. Instead, she shares glimpses of her professional projects, such as her role as a host on NBC’s competition show Dancing With Myself. Additionally, she takes pride in showcasing her life as a mother to her two sons, Milan (born in 2013) and Sasha (born in 2015), whom she shares with her former partner, FC Barcelona soccer star Gerard Piqué.
Shakira’s style choices underwent a transformation after meeting Piqué during the 2010 World Cup. Following the confirmation of their relationship in 2011, her dresses and costumes became more conservative, aligning with her newfound roles as a football WAG and a mother. However, in the months leading up to their surprising split in June 2022, Shakira noticeably embraced her incredible physique more frequently.
At the Cannes Film Festival in late May, she turned heads in a plunging black strapless gown, followed by a captivating appearance in a red strapless crop top during promotional events for Dancing With Myself. Shakira’s renewed confidence and self-assuredness are evident, as she radiates an aura of empowerment and self-appreciation.
