Shakira made a glamorous entrance at the “Elvis” premiere during the Cannes Film Festival. The Colombian superstar looked ultra-chic as she arrived on the red carpet today on a gorgeous black gown by Mônot.

The strapless dress featured a plunging sweetheart neckline, a form-fitting bodice and a thigh-high side slit. The garment also had a subtle train that delicately swept the ground and helped to add a timeless touch.

The “Hips Don’t Lie” musician took things up a notch with sheer black gloves and a diamond choker necklace. Shakira parted her hair to the side and styled it soft sultry waves.

She committed to a monochromatic moment with black sandals. Strappy sandals will be one of the biggest shoe trends of the summer. The minimal silhouette ranks high in popularity because its meant to look and feel like you are not wearing any shoes at all. The most popular styles often include neutral leather or suede uppers, as well as stiletto or block heels for an added height boost.

The Cannes Film Festival celebrates and previews upcoming international films. Held annually on the French Riviera, this year’s festival, which runs May 17-28, will see a return to its standard live format for the first time since 2019 — though Russians with government ties have been banned from attending in solidarity with Ukraine during the ongoing war. On the starry front, the 2022 Festival will host more Hollywood-focused films than it has since 2019, where highly anticipated movies “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Elvis” and “Armageddon Time” will be shown. Additionally, the prestigious Palm d’Or award, the Festival’s highest prize, will be judged by a jury led by actor Vincent Lindon.
