The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards have begun and Shakira, the beloved queen of Latin music, seems to be dominating the event already. With her impressive career selling 95 million records globally and receiving three Grammy awards and four Moon Person trophies, it’s no surprise that she’s being honored with this year’s Video Vanguard Award. She truly is the moment.
The fashion and glam of Shakira never fail to impress, and at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, she did not disappoint. Her outfit was a stunning Versace gown made of chainmail with a plunging cowl neckline, thigh-high slit, thin tie straps, and side-boob-baring sides. The backless dress sparkled and was paired with metallic gold platform Jimmy Choos. Shakira kept her accessories minimal and looked amazing on the pink carpet. It’s a rare sight to see her in the spotlight, but when she is, she certainly knows how to make an impression.
Shakira added a flashy touch to the summer shoe trend that Amal Clooney usually wears. She kept her usual glamorous soft curls with a middle part and opted for soft pink lips with rosy cheeks to complete her look.
Shakira is a regular at the VMAs, always showing up with her mesmerizing voice and enchanting dance moves since the early 2000s. This music legend and multicultural artist has already won the Moonman four times, her first win being in 2000 when it still had that name. One of her other wins was in 2007, thanks to her collaboration with Beyoncé on their hit track “Beautiful Liar.” Shakira also made a memorable appearance in 2009 when she arrived at the awards show wearing the same sparkly Balmain little black dress as Pink. The two stars shared a laugh on the red carpet, proving that there was no bad blood between them.
