Watch any of her music videos, from “Hips Don’t Lie” to “Whenever, Wherever,” and the singer is usually in a midriff-baring, low-rise outfit. It’s a fashion choice that befits herself and her audience—by strategically showing elements of her body, we’re able to better see the intricacies of her (incredible) dance moves. She was incredibly focused on the tiny details of the cutouts—where things are hitting, as well as the neckline.”
