It was an unrivalled pop fashion-fest last night as Fergie, Shakira and Alicia Keys kicked off the World Cup with a concert in South Africa

The three R&B songstresses made for an electrifying set as they performed for the first ever concert held to mark the opening of the biggest sporting event in the calendar.

For us of course though,it was all about the style, and the recent vogue for bodysuits was going strong as Fergie rocked the stage along with her Black Eyed Peas in a gladiator-style outfit.

While Rihanna and Cheryl may have put in some pretty fierce efforts at working thigh-skimming suits of late, Fergie took the trend to a whole new level in her heavily embellished version. Glistening in the sculpted suit she worked it with Xena Warrior-style hair, and some racy sheer fishnets.



But it was the sultry Shakira who really stole the show, as she closed the night with a rendition of the official World Cup anthem, Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) along with an African choir. She proved that her hips don’t lie as she shook her stuff in a cut-away body and grass skirt.

Alicia Keys also put in a performance, and while she may be harbouring a burgeoning baby bump, that didn’t stop her stepping out from her piano to show off her fierce chain-embellished top.

While the boys may be cheering on England, we’ll be flying the flag for more fab football fashion moments.
