Black new black for in Shakira video

Colombian pop stunner Shakira appears covered head to toe in black greasepaint in a dance scene in her new video La Tortura.

The singer teamed up with choreographer Jamie King to create a sensual new dance routine for the rooftop scene, and the pair decided she'd look great if she was black.

She says: "Jamie came up with the great idea of the woman painted in black. I think it's an element of great impact in the video; it's very tribal."
