Seen & Heard: Shakira, Elizabeth Hurly, Beyoncé Knowles, Rachel Bilson

Roberto Cavalli design for Shakira

NEW YORK, Jul 7, 2010 / FW/ — While World Cup fans are in their fever pitch, fashionistas can now join the excitement with Roberto Cavalli dressing musical artist Shakira for her performance at the Closing Ceremony of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Johannesburg on Sunday July 11th, 2010.

Shakira, who will sing the official song of the FIFA World Cup 2010 “Waka-Waka”, will wear a tulle top fully embroidered with multicolor pearls, a silk fringed skirt with floral motif and animalier print, a denim belt embroidered with African style pearls, and leather bracelets with floral silk appliqué.

Speaking of Roberto Cavalli, the Florentine designer also dressed actress/model Elizabeth Hurley in a stamped silk v neck dress from the Roberto Cavalli Fall Winter 2010 Collection on Monday, July 5th when she attended the Conservative Party Summer Ball in Chelsea, England.

In our side of the pond, and across the North American continent, Rachel Bilson looks cute and casual in her daftbird oversized pocket tank while running errands in Los Angeles on Thursday, July 1. Bilson is just one of many daftbird fans sporting the collection’s chic and easy tanks, tees and dresses recently – Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Garner are also fans.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé Knowles is making a political statement wearing a “Falling Whistle.”

Falling Whistles is a campaign dedicated to become the voice of a growing coalition for peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo. After hearing the horrifying stories of children sent to the frontlines of war, only armed with a whistle to alert others of rebel forces approaching, Sean Carasso created Falling Whistles in an effort to bring worldwide awareness to the plight of these Congolese children.

If you are interested in supporting the cause, Whistles are available at CURVE at all three locations, 100% of the proceeds go to rehabilitate and advocate for war-affected children:
