while taking a look back in some of her best (and worst) fashion and beauty moments, Shakira encountered a moment that she found particularly unhappy.

The photo came from MIDEM in 2012, where stars were honored by the French Ministry of Culture.

“Oh, how awful! That’s a really bad haircut,” Shakira joked in Spanish.

And it turns out it was Shakira’s mother-in-law who was partially responsible for the haircut.

“I took advice from my mother-in-law. She said, ‘Hey, why don’t you cut your hair? It’s really damaged,'” Shakira explained.

She took the suggestion to heart and agreed to cut her hair a few inches – a decision she called the “worst mistake of her life.”

But despite the poor choice, Shakira has fond memories of the rest of her outfit from the event, which was created by the late designer Azzedine Alaïa.

“I remember it with great fondness, because he was a good friend… His style has always sounded with the feminine figure, with a woman who is not very tall. So they always looked good on me. It’s a shame about my haircut mother-in-law.”

As for her mother-in-law? Shakira joked that she will never take cosmetic advice from her again!
