Frederic Mitterand, the person in charge, physically places Shakira’s medal on her chest during the official event.
Relax and take your time – Mitterand playfully teases as he seems to enjoy taking a moment to attach the medal, and gives it one last affectionate touch.
…and lastly…a smooch from the alert clergyman.
Shakira is all about family pride as she shares a moment with her parents, Nidia and William, in a photo after a ceremony.
Colombian musician Shakira flaunted two different styles on Saturday. She received her French knighthood in a pleated skirt and knee-high boots, but later changed into a strapless gold dress for the NRJ Awards.
Are you feeling a bit chilly? Well, it seems like Shakira had a clever solution to protect her impeccable hair and outfit from the gloomy weather in France. She had an assistant! Yes, you read that right. Her assistant was her knight in shining armor, shielding her from the harsh elements.
Shakira expresses her gratitude towards the French government and its people for bestowing upon her an honour. She says “Merci beaucoup” to convey her heartfelt appreciation for the recognition.
Person: Shakira is seated beside fellow honouree Patricia Kass.
