Shakira is starring in her first major fashion campaign.

The 45-year-old Colombian icon has been tapped by Burberry to front its 2022 festive campaign, which also features Nigerian singer Burna Boy. The highlight of the campaign is a holiday-themed short film called The Night Before – “captured through a boldly British and Burberry lens,” according to the luxury brand’s website. In it, Shakira flaunts some festive outfits and accessories featuring the label's signature plaid pattern and equestrian motif.

Sheer Nude Gown

In one scene of the Christmas-themed film, the “Hips Don’t Lie” hitmaker is all dolled up in a sheer, crystal-embellished gown identical to the one Lila Moss (Kate Moss’s daughter) wore to the 2022 Met Gala. Completing her look are chunky earrings, a ring, a quilted metallic clutch, and a high ponytail.

Burberry Signatures: Trench Coat And Plaid

In another scene, Shakira struts down a catwalk made up of round tables. At first, she’s wearing a corset, an A-line skirt, and knee-high boots printed with Burberry’s iconic plaid pattern. And as she twirls, a ruffle blouse is magically added to her outfit.

Next, she stoops to pick up a table napkin, which also magically turns into a mini bowling bag. Lastly, a pair of shades, bow earrings, and a trench coat (another Burberry icon) are added to the ensemble.

“I loved the blouse I’m wearing so much I asked to keep it,” the singer told British Vogue. “And the evening gown, it goes without saying, was truly a work of art.”

Thrilled With The Campaign

Shakira sat down with Vogue to talk about the campaign. “I’m honestly so thrilled about it – it’s the first time I’ve done a fashion campaign like this and Burberry is such an iconic brand,” she said. “To me Burberry is elegance personified, and timeless – fashion is such an ever changing world, always evolving. Burberry manages to evolve with the time but always keeps its distinctive, classy style.”

On making the film, she said, “It is so different than anything I’ve done before, but I love how creative this whole campaign is.”
