Shakira kept it casual on the red carpet today for NBCUniversal Upfront in New York.

For the media presentation event, the 45-year-old channeled a mid-Y2K vibe with her skinny jeans and casual on-the-clock ensemble. She posed for the camera in a red strapless top with a semi-sweetheart neckline. The shirt featured pleated detailing with overlapping materials and a long ribbon that draped down her front side. She matched the cropped top with a pair of black, high-waisted skinny jeans.

On her feet, the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer wore a pair of black leather boots, which she tucked into her jeans. The shoes, which camouflaged with her jeans, had a sharp pointed toe and gave her some height with the thin tall heel.

In one of the red carpet photos, she poses with Nick Jonas. The 29-year-old wore a Canadian tuxedo look with his own personal twist. He had on an oversized denim jacket with white buttons lining the front side, which he layered over a white and red V-neck sweater. He also wore a pair of matching baggy jeans with patch details. He kept up with the casual aesthetic in a pair of white Nike sneakers with the signature Nike Swoosh in black.

The NBCUniversal Upfront has not occurred in person since 2019, before the COVID-19 Pandemic. NBC talk show hosts such as Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers took to the stage to poke fun at the network while “The Voice” host Kelly Clarkson opened with a performance of “Queen of the Night.”
