Colombian song bird Shakira took time out of her busy schedule as a mom, singer, and judge on The Voice to grace the cover of Elle magazine in this shoot by Carter Smith. The new mom stays classy and sexy without taking her clothes off and flaunting her still amazing figure. The photographer uses basic backgrounds so that the focus is drawn to the models golden hair and the silver-accented black dresses. 

In the Elle article she talks about figuring out motherhood, her relationship with Spanish soccer star Gerard Picqué, and the future of her music career.
