The VMA is one of the most prestigious events and celebrities usually take the whole year to prepare and make sure they look their best; well, at least in most cases. 2010 VMA had its problems and wardrobe malfunctions but if you jump over the avant-garde outfits that Lady Gaga wore, Cher and her see-through outfit is surely right up there with some of the worst clothing decisions of all time.
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Cher or about see-through outfits, but when you mix the two together you may not get the result you where going for. Maybe her stylist decided to take a day off or maybe she wanted to regain some of her youth years but whatever happened we can only pray not to happen again.
For those of you that have been living under a rock for the last six decades, Cher is world renowned singer and it is considered by most in the music industry as being the Goddess of Pop and she has the awards to prove it. She even had her own TV show, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, back in 1971. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that she is now retired and living a boring life; she recently played a cabaret dancer in Burlesque along with Christina Aguilera, a movie with great feedback and quite a few strong suits, Cher being one of them.
Despite her long life experience of being in the spotlight, she decided that she will wear a black see-through outfit with different colored crystals and high leather boots to one of the most viewed events of the year. She also had a black leather jacket on but it didn’t cover as much as you would have expected to. You may recognize the style of the outfit from her music video 22 years ago, Turn Back Time; maybe that’s what she was trying to do.
If you take a look at her outfit from a fashionable point of view without considering her age, there are just a few things to contest. Being a formal event, it may not be the best decision you can make if you want to make a good impression but it could be used with success in other locations, such as your bedroom. The leather jacket doesn’t belong with the outfit no matter where you are but I guess that in this case it was the less of two evils. Her hair also didn’t do the outfit much justice, being a bit too much and as she mention while on stage, she was the oldest chick with the biggest hair and the littlest costume.
Cher remains a fashion icon despite this small accident and we will be looking forward to seeing her in future movies and on the red carpet where she belongs.
