The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards are officially underway, and it looks like the Queen of Latin Music, Shakira, has already arrived at the moment. The Colombian singer and frontman has had an impressive career: 95 million records sold worldwide, three Grammy Awards, and four Moon Person Awards. So, to no one’s surprise, she received this year’s Video Vanguard Award.
It’s rare that we see Shakira back in the spotlight, but when we do, it’s in style And Glamor never disappoints — and at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, her hips really didn’t lie. Arriving at the pink carpet, the singer-songwriter wore an elegant Versace dress that featured a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit. But as soon as the singer looked over her shoulder, she revealed thin straps and exposed side panels. She styled the sparkly backless dress with a coordinating metallic gold platform from Jimmy Choos and kept her accessories minimal.
As for her brilliance, Shakira stuck to her signature soft, shiny curls with a middle section and soft pink lips with rosy cheeks.
Any time, any place, you’ll catch Shakira at the VMAs. Her captivating voice and magical moves have been on display since the early 2000s. The multicultural artist and music legend earned her first Moonman in 2000 (it was still called that at the time) and her fourth in 2007 for her collaboration with Beyoncé on their hit song “Beautiful Liar.” In 2009, Shakira returned to the VMAs to highlight her “Who Wore It Best” moment? When she arrived on the red carpet, the pop star wore the same sparkly Balmain LBD that Pink arrived in as well — and they were all laughing, in case you were wondering.
