Shakira Is a Vision in Red at 2024 Met Gala

Shakira dazzled at her Met Gala debut in a simple-yet-stunning red column dress with a slit that turned heads. For the wow factor: A dramatic long cape made with almost 100 meters of fabric that resembled a rose.

The sleek outfit with geometric cutouts was created by Carolina Herrera’s creative director Wes Gordon, who spent the past few months working with the Colombian superstar on the look, according to Vogue.


“It’s really about making Shakira feel like the best version of Shakira,” the designer told the fashion magazine. “She was incredibly focused on the tiny details of the cutouts — where things are hitting, as well as the neckline,” he added. “It’s amazing to work and do fittings with someone who’s a physical performer, because her sensitivity to movement and body awareness is really extraordinary.”

Shakira’s Monday (May 6) debut at the Met Gala comes less than three weeks after she announced the first leg of her Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran World Tour. Named after her latest album, the trek — her first since 2018’s El Dorado — will start Nov. 2 in Palm Desert, California, and include stops in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Chicago, among other North American cities.

This year’s gala exhibit theme, Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion, is set to feature 250 items from the Costume Institute’s permanent collection. The works will be displayed at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in new ways, including elements such as video animation, CGI, AI and more.

The 2024 Met Gala was co-hosted by Bad Bunny, Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya and Chris Hemsworth. Other Latin Music stars in attendance were Rosalía, Omar Apollo, Rauw Alejandro, Cardi B and Camila Cabello.
