Shakira For Vanity Fair October 2009

Olga – a regular reader – contacted me recently and asked if I had seen Shakira’s new video “She Wolf”.

Olga was informing me that she noticed that Sharika was wearing those sparkling Balmain Spring 2009 heels in her new video.

At that point I hadn’t seen the video, but a few days later whilst at the gym pounding the treadmill I almost fell off when “She Wolf” came on screen.

Sharika is ELECTRIC.

She’s like a magnet that draws you in and leaves you mesmerized by her beauty, so I was happy to see Vanity Fair have captured that beauty in a Couture shoot photographed by Michael Roberts for their October 2009 issue.

In the picture above she lounges in a gold chair whilst having her nails done wearing a gold Jean Paul Gaultier dress. Her ring is from Cartier.

The rest of her shoot includes her wearing Valentino, Armani Privé, Chanel – thankfully one of the few pieces I liked from that collection – Givenchy and Christian Dior.

The Dior and both the Valentino pictures are my absolute favourites.

    How awesome is the shoot…each image is outstanding…Is this the first time Shakira sporting straight hair??

    she is really beautiful. I also sometimes call her “Sharika” :)

    I’m not impressed by the photospread (even if the Valentino lace dress and mask are amazing), while the ‘She Wolf’ video is soooo impressive (Balmain sandals included). She’s a great dancer!

    I don’t like it at all.
    She’s wearing amazing couture pieces, but they look so Forever21 on her.

    She looks really beautiful..I love the Dior picture… but I prefer Shakira with the curly hair..

    The shoot is great! Lovely outfits.

    BUT imo, straight hair doesn’t suit Shakira. It makes her look very bimbo-ish. Add to that that ‘She wolf’ song and I can totally understand why some of her fans think she’s “selling out” :/

    Valentino dress is stunning and so is Shakira

    I think she looks beautiful, there is no way her curly hair would’ve look good with these pieces.

      I agree.

    Givenchy and Dior are my faves!

  11. ayesha September 3, 2009 at 17:00 #

    She is a stunner! Elegant & sexy, she does not look like a bimbo at all. It’s called glamourous! Love it Thanks for that post; love all the outfits

    in the Dior one she looks like Scarlett Johanson which is not a bad thing, but I prefered the “old” Shakira

    i can’t see her wearing chanel?!^^

  14. Stuti September 3, 2009 at 17:44 #

    Oh hell yeah. Both Diors and Valentinos are my favorites!

  15. marve September 3, 2009 at 17:49 #

    Only one word to describe her here:

    Dazzling!

  16. silvana.stredel September 3, 2009 at 18:08 #

    OK, I almost died when I saw Shakira wearing my beloved Balmain heels on the “she wolf” or “loba” video-clip like a month ago.
    I was waiting for you to publish it (:

    I love Shakira and I loved her even more after I first saw that video. I need to download the song!

  18. zoe September 3, 2009 at 18:45 #

    shakira really is beautiful!
    these pictures aren’t fierce or groundbreaking, but they make me see how beautiful shakira really is. i’m going to have to watch that music video soon.
    those valentino pieces are divine! when i saw the picture of that black dress from the show originally i wasn’t that amazed by it, and now i see it for what it’s worth! it’s absolutely exquisite and shakira wears that and the mask very well.

    she has exotic features, and her chest is nearly flat so not at all bimbo-ish, however maybe the blond do should’v been toned down a bit or maybe brown would have done it.

    my favorite is the valentino!

  20. Pam September 3, 2009 at 20:37 #

    Ella luce hermosa, sin duda.

    • Fashion Critic September 3, 2009 at 20:56 #

      translated: She looks beautiful, no doubt.

      I agree

  21. Mai September 3, 2009 at 21:04 #

    i love the lace masks!!!!! stunning!

  22. loveless September 3, 2009 at 21:04 #

    Stunning? Really? I am absolutely stumped when people say Shakira is beautiful. Maybe I could see it more clearly if I weren’t so detracted by her hair. If she left it in its natural state –obviously brunette and curly, then I could agree.

  23. Ahot September 4, 2009 at 22:38 #

    LOL, her Gaulthier picture is so Mariah Carey! i love it She is very beautiful.
