Shakira In Charbel Zoe – Germany v Argentina: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Final

Shakira In Charbel Zoe - Germany v Argentina 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Final

Shakira performed during the closing ceremony prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil final match between Germany and Argentina held at the Maracaña on Sunday (July 13) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Like Jennifer Lopez at the opening ceremony, Shakira opted to wear a piece from up-and-coming designer Charbel Zoe, which is quite a latin diva double whammy.

The custom fiery-red piece featuring an embroidered bodice and feathered skirt definitely helped enhance Shakira’s electrifying performance.

She styled the look with feathered flats, with her wavy hair left to blow in the wind.

Shakira In Julien Macdonald – 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Shakira In Julien Macdonald - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Before her performance during the show, Shakira walked the red carpet of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas tonight (May 18).

The singer wore a pretty blue long-sleeved dress from Julien Macdonald’s Fall 2014.

The patterned sheer paneling is an interesting take on the hot trend, and by forgoing any dramatic jewelry, Shakira definitely lets this dress do the talking.

I do feel like the chunky black platforms are out of place, and wish she’d opted for a strappy silver sandal or even a nude pump instead.

Simple but classic hair and makeup are perfectly Shakira, and keep the singer well within her comfort zone.

Nothing too dramatic, but a lovely turn on the red carpet.

Shakira In Azzedine Alaia – 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Shakira In Azzedine Alaia -  2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Shakira attended the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on Thursday (May 1) in Los Angeles, California.

The singer wore a black and white Alaïa two-piece with cut-out details throughout.

I love the look – just not on Shakira. I have never been much of a fan of her style, and this twee look is no different.

Add in the heavy pumps, lack of makeup, and unteased tresses and this is a firm no from me.

Shakira In Zuhair Murad & Kristian Aadnevik – ACM Awards 2014

Shakira In Zuhair Murad & Kristian Aadnevik - ACM Awards 2014

With her Blake Shelton country connection, it was not a surprise to see Latin singer Shakira at the 49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (April 6) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Red Carpet: She took to the red carpet looking uber sexy wearing a Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 teal silk-jersey long-sleeved gown featuring an embroidered bodice with a sheer nude silk detail and black laddered-tights effect, styled with signature wavy tresses. In the wrong hands this could’ve been incredibly tacky, but Shakira’s hips don’t lie.

Performance: For her emotional high-energy performance with fellow ‘The Voice’ judge Blake Shelton of their new song ‘Medicine’, Shakira changed into a fiery red number from Kristian Aadnevik’s Fall 2014 collection. She styled the corseted red lingerie-inspired mini dress with over-the-knee boots and flesh-coloured fishnet tights. This look I was less enamoured with. Even for a performance look, I found it a little cheesy.

Shakira In Zuhair Murad – Echo Awards 2014

Shakira In Zuhair Murad - Echo Awards 2014

Shakira took to the red carpet for the Echo Awards 2014 held at Messe Berlin on Thursday (March 27) in Berlin, Germany.

The singer looked sensational wearing a Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 web-like creation.

Her long-sleeved nude silk gown featuring black-beaded embroidered details throughout was considered dramatic enough, so she kept the styling simple with glossy side-swept waves and a simple ring.

Shakira In Azzedine Alaia – 2011 NRJ Music Awards

Shakira attended the 2011 NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, France this weekend.

I’ve never been a fan of Shakira’s style as everything about her seems dated, but she did look good wearing an Azzedine Alaia Fall 2010 dress.

Her black beaded sleeveless dress with a flounce hem could’ve been lifted has she opted for more exciting accessories.

Sergio Rossi pumps, a Christian Louboutin clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewels completed look.

Wore Wore Gucci Better? Evan Rachel Wood, Pixie Lott or Shakira

Evan Rachel Wood first wore this Gucci dress back in June to Hollywood Life’s 11th Annual Young Hollywood Awards and I love what she’s done with it.

Bare legs, check. Red nails, check. Cinched in waist, check. Great accessories check. My only complaint would to be to say she could have picked a more exciting shoe.

When Pixie wore this dress to the Q Awards in October I wished she’d left her tights at home.

I’m also not completely sure what’s going on with the flowers in her hair?! However, this dress does really suit her rock chick vibe. I just wish she’s styled it better.

Shakira was last to wear this Gucci number in November to the Bambi Awards and it’s left me in two minds.

I think she wore it well, teaming it with simple accessories and knee high boots but I just don’t understand those tights! Am I missing the point or do they scream ‘ice skater’ to anyone else?!

For me, Evan Rachel Wood wins this style battle. She’s worn this sequined number with the boldness it deserves.

Who Wore Herve Leger Better? Jennifer Lopez or Shakira

Despite the £6,800 price tag, this Herve Leger metal pailette embellished bandage dress sold out not long after it was uploaded onto Net-A-Porter.

And it’s no wonder considering two of music hottest divas have been seen wearing it.

Jennifer Lopez was in Club LIV in Miami to showcase the video for her new single back in October wearing this Herve Leger dress.

Jennifer looked stunning as always, wearing her mirrored mini dress with black Christian Louboutin Differa sandals.

Singer Shakira wore the same dress on stage and in the press room at the 2009 American Music Awards.

I didn’t like the way she styled her hair, plus I prefer Jennifer’s Differa sandals, so JLo wins for me.
