Shakira: A Tale Of Two Outfits

Shakira managed to register hits on both ends of the fashion scale last weekend, which is no small feat. We’ll take care of the fug first since the fab will make us happy again.

We think this entire look is awful. The dress (separates? we can’t tell) doesn’t seem to be appropriate for this kind of event (also, it’s ugly) and the boots look like something a housewife picked up at the BOGO sale at Payless because she thought they were trendy.

We’ll say no more because it does get better. On to the fab.

We haven’t said a lot about Shakira’s style. She doesn’t dress like a crazy person nor has she ever really wowed us with anything. She’s beige.
