Most people in the U.S. first saw Colombian-born Shakira in 2001 in her video for “Wherever, Whenever.” You probably remember the first time you saw the 24-year-old Latin beauty thrust her hips, belly dance and shake her booty on a mountain. (We do.) Not a bad introduction.
Almost 10 years later, the pint-size 5-foot-2 star has not slowed her hips or stopped flashing her flawless midriff. Which means that there’s a decade’s worth of drool-inducing Shakira photos floating around out there. We’ve collected the 30 finest and put them all in the same place. Happy birthday, America.
