Shakira: Bang Up Job In Rio

Bangs. Some wear them well, while we haven’t worn them since since the early 90′s. Shakira’s, on the other hand, managed to perform quite an impressive disappearing act in Rio de janeiro, Brazil over the weekend.
The Colombian singer – along with Brazilian TV hostess Xuxa – paid a special visit to a social program for poor children last Friday afternoon, in an effort to promote universal primary education. During this visit, she let her (visibly distressed) forehead decorations hang in all their glory.
Good for them.
Later in the evening, Gerard Pique’s girlfriend took to the Rock in Rio music festival’s main stage as the headlining act. Needless to say, she and her abs made their presences known; her bangs, however, were sensibly framed away from her face.
Our bottom line: while we don’t cringe when she’s sporting them, we personally prefer to see Shakira’s pretty profile free from the fringe.
Do you feel the same or differently Kickettes? This is an important matter, mind you, that we can’t move past without superficially surveying our nearest and dearest first.
