Shakira in Zuhair Murad at the ACMs: gorgeous or crocheted mess?


Shakira attended last night’s ACM awards in grand fashion. She did a duet with Blake Shelton and was mostly there to promote her own self-titled album. Shakira is a gorgeous woman, but I feel like she goes out of her way to look tacky. This Zuhair Murad is a great example of this trend. Wouldn’t this have been a stunning gown in solid fabric with some detailing around the bustline? The dress contains a million nude cutouts instead. It’s kind of awful, but Shakira looks very happy with her choice. That’s what really matters.

As a side note, Shakira wants to clear up all those things she said about Gerard Pique acting like a territorial d-bag. Shakira told People, “I was being humorous and now I see that some press took it very literally! The reality is that we have a beautiful relationship of mutual trust, and jealousy has never been an issue on either side.” Fine, Shakira. You were only kidding.


Sheryl Crowe wore a deep blue Christian Siriano dress with a geometric twist and an angular fishtail. The “pyramid” earrings are a bit much with her hair down. Cheryl was nominated for Best Female Vocalist. I love her boxy red clutch.

Angie Harmon showed off her legs in an iridescent purple minidress. I’ve looked everywhere but can’t have an ID on the dress. She looks good, but the hair is very heavy and severe. I’m pretty sure she’s hitting the ‘Tox too.

Cassadee Pope wore a Maria Lucia Hohan gown with shades of red-range toga. This is a strange gown because of the peekaboo nude slip. This is a safe dress for the ACMs, but it’s kind of boring.

Stevie Nicks was there with Hilary Scott. Let’s be perfectly honest here and admit that Stevie pulled this outfit out of her closet five minutes before popping out the door. She’s Stevie Nicks. She’s earned the power to wear whatever she wants.

    I feel an uncontrollable urge to deep-condition Shakira’s hair

  2. aims says:

    That dress shakira is wearing, is probably the worst dress I’ve ever seen. It’s hideous.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I hate dresses that imply you’re not wearing panties. I think it’s vulgar. Plus, you’re right, that is one ugly dress.

    • qwerty says:

      It’s terrible but then again, so is most of the stuff she wears. Never seen her well dressed once

    • Rice says:

      Shakira, Shakira, you’re hips may not lie but your stylist is definitely lying to you. The dress looks like a superhero costume without the cape.

    • Stef Leppard says:

      Oh noes… I think I’m the only one who likes Shakira’s dress. I wish it didn’t have sleeves though and that her hair was up (and/or ten inches shorter).

    • MaiGirl says:

      She looks like a dark blue insect queen who is molting.

  3. OhDear says:

    I’m surprised that Pique let her wear that dress out of the house!

    (She was just joking. Ok. If she says so.)

  4. RobN says:

    The dress is awful, unless the bottom zips off and she went ice skating after the show. Then it’s awesome.

  5. Dimebox says:

    Shakira is talented and gorgeous, but her dress looks like it was used for a tiger’s scratch post before she got it.

  6. BooBooLaRue says:

    Am I imaging this or has Cheryl had some work done on her face? what’s different?

    • Dirtnap says:

      @Booboolarue: I’ve been thinking the same. If I’d spent any amount of time with Lance Armstrong, I’d get a lift to erase my “Armstrong Trauma Lines” too.

    • ~Z~ says:

      Absolutely. I had to check that is was her. She looks great though.

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Angie looks pretty, I think. You have to have really pretty legs to carry off ankle straps, and she does.

  8. Hubbahun says:

    Hilary Scott and Stevie Nicks look the best! Shakira’s face is just heaven.

  9. lucy2 says:

    Oh wow that is the worst dress ever. She seems like a sweet woman, but wow, that is bad.
    Angie and Sheryl both look good.

  10. Coco says:

    What? No mention how Sheryl Crow looks so tweaked and barely recognizable?

    • Cecilia says:

      I didn’t recognize her either. I had to look to see who it was. She looks pretty though.

  11. shellybean says:

    Shakira is gorgeous, but also a crocheted mess. This is the best I’ve ever seen Sheryl Crow look.

  12. Karen says:

    I saw shakira in a red dress at those awards and she looked stunning, but that thing is heinous.

  13. MaiGirl says:

    I know that Angie has black hair naturally, but it’s time to go up a shade or two. That super-black dye job is too harsh and makes her look older. Only James Brown could get away with that patent leather black shade!

  14. Kosmos says:

    While I do love Shakira, you’re right….the dress IS kind of awful, uggg
