Shakira is no stranger to the World Cup! The Colombian singer, who has made three World Cup appearances, gave a fiery closing ceremony performance prior to the final 2014 FIFA World Cup match between Argentina and Germany.
Soccer and the World Cup have a special place in Shakira‘s heart, since it gave her the two greatest gifts she could ever ask for. While promoting her 2010 World Cup anthem “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” she met her boyfriend, FC Barcelona center back and Spain national team defender Gerard Pique. with whom she would give birth to their 18-month-old son, Milan. Four years later, with Gerard and Milan proudly watching on the sidelines of the Brazil arena, Shakira reclaimed her title as the World Cup songstress while performing “La La La” at the closing ceremony in a sparkling red get-up that left everyone stunned. What did you think of the Colombian singer’s sizzling third World Cup appearance?
Shakira’s World Cup Performance Dress — Sizzles On Stage:
Shakira gave a blowout, electrifying performance at the 2014 Brazil World Cup Closing Ceremony, but she couldn’t have done it without the magical construction and delicate embroidery of up-and-coming designer Charbel Zoe, who also designed Jennifer Lopez‘s opening ceremony look. Shakira wore a Charbel Zoe custom made fiery-red piece featuring an embroidered bodice and feathered skirt. She completed the smoldering look with matching feather flats, which allowed her to truly rock the stage with her exhilarating dance moves.
Shakira let her loose blonde, wavy tresses blow in the wind in mesmerizing fashion, while keeping her makeup sultry with a smoky brown shadow, sun-kissed bronze, and natural pink lips. With a microphone in hand, she strutted her way to the top as the all-time World Cup songstress in a dazzling performance.
A killer singer and dancer with a rocking bod, Shakira never fails to impress us with both her talent and her style. We can’t wait to fast forward the next four years for her next (hopefully!) World Cup appearance! Can you?
