Dazzling: Shakira word a sparkly black mini dress that clung to her curves and black patent peep toes to the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes
She-wolf Shakira was the belle of the ball as she stalked the red carpet at the 12th annual NRJ Music Awards in Cannes last night.
The 33-year-old singer looked stunning in a tight black frock as she waved to the hundreds of fans from the red carpet at the glitzy bash.
The star also played live at the event, belting out songs Loca, from her album of last year Sale El Sol, and her World Cup anthem of last summer, Waka Waka, while hypnotising the crowds with her trademark slinky hip moves.

She also ended up one of the big winners at the ceremony, picking up gongs for International Female Artist of the Year and International Song of the Year for her World Cup hit.
It's the first time the star has been seen out in public since she announced the break-up with her Argentinian boyfriend of 11 years - who is also her manager - earlier this month.
The couple revealed in a joint message on Shakira's website that they actually broke up last August, but had kept it private until their announcement.
Shakira and Antonio de la Rua said they viewed their separation as temporary, and de la Rua will continue to oversee Shakira's business and career interests.
Also at the do were Jermaine Jackson, Usher, apl.de.ap and Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas and David Guetta.
Model Victoria Silvstedt had also donned a short black dress for the black tie event, run by French radio station NRJ.
Yeah! Usher was also at the awards along with Black Eyed Peas apl.de.ap and Will.i.am
It's the first big event of the Midem, the world's music music industry trade fair, which takes over Cannes in the south of France every January.
Other winners at the event included Justin Bieber, who won International Revelation Of The Year, Black Eyed Peas who won Best International Group and Concert Of The Year and Usher won International Male Artist Of The Year.
David Guetta equalled Shakira's two awards with Hit Of The Year for Club Can't Handle Me and the Award Of Honour.
