AAll the signs were there but we hadn’t really imagined, Shakira gave us all the signals when she went to the Cannes Film Festival 2022 wearing this spectacular black dress. In case you’re living under a rock, Shakira just announced it separation from Gérard Piqué after almost 12 years of relationship.
Rumors began to invade the general conversation at the end of May, but other reports confirmed that they had been in trouble for at least three months. In fact, the Youtube show ‘Mamarazzis’ hosted by Laura Fa and Lorena Vazquez broke the story and added that the couple had been separated for three months.
An alleged infidelity of the central defender of FC Barcelona Gerard Pique is perhaps at the origin of this rupture between the two public figures. However, nothing has been confirmed on either side about this release. But the signs are all there, perhaps the biggest being Shakira’s stunning black dress from the Cannes Film Festival in May.
We should have seen the signs when Shakira took a Princess Diana move out of her playbook. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, allow us to explain why this is a definite nod to the late Lady Di.
Princess Diana’s “revenge dress”.
The reason it’s called the ‘revenge dress’ has quite a story behind it, Princess Diana had just come out of a scandal with her former husband, Prince Charles. After her affair with Camila Parker-Bowles broke the news in 1994, Princess Diana attended the Vanity Fair gala wearing a beautiful black dress that looked surprisingly like Shakira’s.
Although it may be a coincidence, it perfectly describes the personality of women. Not just women, but men too, especially when they’ve been cheated on. That freedom Ladi Di felt wearing that dress after the scandal hit the media is the same freedom Shakira felt when she visited Cannes.
