Shakira is, paw’s down, this dog’s favorite celebrity. I consider her to be a real, true and enduring style icon. Not one to act fussy on the red carpet – or anywhere else – she can quickly dress up or down and often has a friendly, let’s-play-catch smile on her face. Now that’s enviable!

I also think it’s great that she always looks happy to be photographed, even in the simplest of outfits. Take this very casual yellow T-shirt (see pic). Does it get any more effortless than that?  I also think it’s great when her wild, golden mane of hair frames her face. Kind of like mine does!

In 2012, she collaborated with rapper Pitbull to lay down her unique vocal style as a featured artist on his then just-released song “Get It Started”. In addition, she appeared in the related video, glamming it up in a shiny gold gown but still looking fresh faced in minimal makeup.



It’s that kind of just-rolled-out-of-bed, what’s-for-breakfast, “Wanna go for a walk, boy?” look I love best. For me, Shakira represents the complete package. I bet she’d be a great dog owner: Sweet, smart, playful, talented, compassionate and laid back. Who knows? Maybe she already is!
