However, the fun didn’t stop at the Gala, as she also had time to have dinner with Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, and changed into her second look of the night, to attend the Stella McCartney afterparty at Casa Cruz.


Shakira took some pics with her celebrity friends, posing next to her longtime friend Penelope Cruz, and joined by Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, Matt Damon, Luciana Barroso, and more. The exclusive afterparty was also attended by Serena Williams, Karlie Kloss, Charlie XCX, Irina Shayk, Baz Luhrmann, Ed Sheeran, and Elizabeth Gillies, among others.
