In the middle of this week, H๏τ female singer Shakira also agreed with the above view. During the Viktor & Rolf fashion show in Paris, she wore a white coat, from the brand’s Fall/Winter 2008 collection, emblazoned with a bold “No – No” on the chest in a style three-dimensional letters.

She teamed this look with yellow heels and a small handbag of the same color from Italian brand Aquazzura. In the pH๏τos taken at the event, she waved her thumb as if to say: “No”.

“People are saying ‘yes’ to everything and yes is being overrated. I’m aware of what it means to say no. ‘No’ is a powerful word,” Shakira said of the idea. Meaning of choosing clothes.

Using clothes to convey inner thoughts is not new, it has long been used as a communication tool by celebrities. T-shirt featuring the bold tagline, “Nepo Baby,” that Hailey Bieber wore earlier this year after being criticized for her easy path to fame. Even politicians, presidents and members of the royal family convey information through their clothing.

However, sometimes expressing emotions through clothing can backfire. In 2018, Melania Trump caused widespread outcry when she opted to wear a khaki-colored Zara coat, which read “I don’t care. Do you care?” written in white letters on his shirt, while visiting a refugee camp at the US-Mexico border.
Shakira’s jacket doesn’t really convey the message in a lighthearted way, as a soft power person like her usually does. There is much controversy surrounding the exact meaning of her “No”. Some reporters were quick to interpret this fashionable message as a personal and public message for Shakira’s ex-footballer Gerad Piqué. The couple ended a 12-year relationship last year.In fact, Viktor & Rolf has long been inspired by internet culture and meme language, especially the word “No”. For their 2019 couture collection, candy-colored tulle dresses were embroidered with inspirational social media phrases like “Sorry I’m late, I wasn’t here at all”.
