There was a fashion moment at the World Cup! Roberto Cavalli created a custom neon outfit for Shakira to wear to perform at the World Cup’s closing ceremony yesterday, designed so that when she shook her body, swiveled her hips, and gyrated on stage, the whole look would come alive (as you can see from the designer’s sketch, above right). And it did. The look consisted of a bright pink fringe skirt with a woven print, a yellow crop top that was embroidered with pearls, and a belt that was inspired by African motifs. But our favorite part had to be the stacked bracelets and anklets. They totally reminded us of those glow-in-the-dark accessories you get at fireworks displays … and raves. Except on Shakira, they look much better.
