Thanks to her enormous talent and iron-clad work ethnic, superstar Shakira has been able to take her music to new heights time-and-time again — which has made her one of today's most well-known global stars (her latest venture will be performing during the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show alongside Jennifer Lopez). Clearly, talent and steely work-ethic is something that runs in Shakira's family due to the rise of her model-actress prima Valerie Domínguez.
Like Shakira, she was born in their beautiful country of Colombia and is packed with all the talent that Shakira has — but went a different route. Instead of pursuing singing like her famous cousin, she went for acting and modeling instead.
According to People en Español, the model-actress has more than one million followers on social media, impart to her line of work. The Colombian beauty was also crowned Miss Colombia in 2006.
She has proven that the sky's the limit, and participated in several beauty competitions, even going onto compete in Miss Universe 2007 where she placed in the top 10.
Acting and modeling isn't all that the 38-year-old does, she is also an animal advocate and wears socially responsible clothing.
Like Shakira, Valerie loves sports and she loves to dance, and although she can't shake her hips like Shakira you can rest assured that her hips don't lie either.
