    holy pink eye makeup

    • kimmeister

      It’s terrifying!

    • When I was studying theater in school, in make up class they told us that pink used around the eyes would nearly always make you look tired. In fact, it’s a standard part of age makeup for stage and screen.

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        She looks a strange sort of aged troll harajuku doll version of Cher, with 2 different pink shades of eye make up.

      • H2olovngrl

        What he said.  Seriously though, that is one of the only things that sticks with me from drama class.  Stay away from pink eye shadow.  It is almost never your friend.

      • StellaZafella

        When did Cher become Bianca Jagger?

      • kaycem

        with super light, frosted pink being the one exception.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Full stop.

  • charlotte

    Just what I needed.

  • GorgeousThings

    Not good pictures of our Cher. The flash is too harsh. But I LOVE her ring!

  • imperfectlaura

    My favorite part is the pin that says “ROCK” in her hat.

    • YoungSally

      Nothing says grandma like phrases in rhinestones.

      Next stop — puff-paint kitty cats on a pink sweatshirt.

  • Tamara Hogan

    I pretty much want everything she’s wearing, except for the chapeau.

    • Alyssa

      I definitely want the pants!

  • alyce1213

    I squealed when I saw this.  Those Balmain pants were made for her and I love them with little boots.
    The ROCK pin !  (I wish it was more brightly lit — it’s so hard to see detail in black and I want a look at her hat.)

  • Is it wrong to love this with every fiber of my being?   Because I do.  I do. 

  • MissMariRose

    Cher is beyond criticism.

    • Alexandra Simons

       Her tweets are great! I just love her.

    • deathandthestrawberry

      Normally, I’d agree. But that eyeshadow.

  • VioletFem

    I really love these pants. On a side note, I hope TLo covers some of the fashion shows featured on Paris Fashion Week.

  • MilaXX

    The thing is parts of this work, but it needs editing. Lose the hat, fix the makeup and I’m okay with this. Either way, rock on Diva!

  • Louise Bryan

    She could be Grandma Mazur in that get-up.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Well observed, Louise, you made me chuckle.

  • formerlyAnon

    O.k., what springs to mind?:

    “Rich, fashion conscious woman. Long, successful career as singer and secondary career as actor, age 66.”

    Damn sure not this, right? What a difference a sense of fun makes!

  • YolandaHawkins

    Cher do your thing girl!

  • l_c_ann

    She’s wearing “Look at ME,  Look at ME” pants when she shouldn’t be calling attention to herself.  She still can look good with makeup, but  this look belongs on the street in the French Quarter, wearing a aluminum construction hat and accomanied by her pet duck.  (Sorry, Ruthie, I know you seldom looked this bad.)

    • shirab

      Not sure I understand this comment. Why should Cher, of all people, not call attention to herself? Because she’s no longer young? Help me out here.

      • l_c_ann

        That outfit would have looked bad on her when she was 20.  Age has NOTHING to do with it.  Bad makeup, bad choices in whatever tops she chose.  Where is the rest of the runway outfit that probably would look great on her. 
        This woman had a clothing line that influenced millions.  She’s not foolish.   

        • Little_Olive

          Oh c’mon. She’s just taking us all on her usual ride, with more than a grain of salt I might add (even though I am not particularly a fan or anything). 

          I don’t see why she should get her makeup done professionally and have a “serious” and perfectly styled outfit juts ’cause she’s older… if anything, she is entitled to be above that -which to me is fame-hungry starlet territory.    Plus, those pants must be HARD to wear and she’s rocking them. 

  • lexilexi

    Cool clothes but plastic face.

    • Adriana_Paula

      It breaks my heart, beacuse she would have aged SUPERLATIVELY if she had just left it alone.

    • ccinnc

      I’d love her (more) if she had aged naturally, and I’d love her face if she’d had excellent plastic surgery (see: Jane Fonda). This is kind of sad. She doesn’t look like herself. I saw an interview with her a few years ago in which she ruefully lamented being 60. But if it works for her …

  • shopgirl716

    One of my all time favorites.  I feel so privileged for having grown up during her heyday of crazy outfits.  Can you imagine the Oscar red carpet this year with one of her Bob Mackie specials?  

    • alyce1213

      Me too – I love her “serious actress” outfits.  Her sense of humor is fantastic, as is her outrageous and courageous fashion sense.

    • Tr16ia

      That’s everything that’s wrong with award shows these days; too many stylists and not enough Cher.  (I’m old too.)

  • BrooklynBomber

    Jesus God almighty. I’d be one hundred percent behind this if it wasn’t for the eyeshadow.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    i pretty much love it all, except for her dose of conjunctivitis, she can keep that…:)

    • NDC_IPCentral

      I was practicing a little ophthalmology, too, over that makeup.

  • i know, you’re CHER, bitch.  but can we talk about the pink eyeshadow?  it’s like the little old ladies who put too much rouge on, only in the wrong place.  ok,ok, i know…you’re CHER, bitch, and you’ll never be a little old lady.  i bow down.

  • mhleta

    Yes. She’s Steven Tyler with boobs. Or, bigger boobs anyway. 

  • Love it, love her.  Go Cher!

  • bertkeeter

    Shades of NORMA DESMOND…for real!

  • once again…the magic of black and white!  And CHER!!!

  • Imasewsure

    Love this. Love her… even love the pink eye makeup – she’s Cher Bitch… she can wear whatever the %$#* she wants!! Squeeeeeeeee

  • dont you worry. shes physically, biologically incapable of changing.

  • decormaven

    It all works for me, except for the pink eyeshadow. May we all be able to rock a pair of skinny pants that well when we reach her age. 

  • Judy_J

    I Got You, Babe!

  • butterflysunita

    This is just too fabulous.  

  • Trisha26

    Love her. Should have had the pants hemmed though.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Bless her insane face.

  • ZnSD

    That’s Chad Michaels, c’mon now.

    • jjfg

       You know, that’s just the thing.  I was thinking that some drag queens now look more like Cher than she does.  That makes me kinda sad.

  • Stubenville

    We should all be so stylish at 66. 

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Wow, this is so cracked out delicious that it makes me feel proud of my homosexuality in some sort of patriotic way.  Like, she is the beloved queen of my sparkly, fabulous country.  Her progeny has been both the crown princess and the crown prince of my people.  We went through wars together.  She gave her life for us, and we gave our lives for her.  And we won!  Every June we have parades celebrating our allegiance and endurance.

  • nannypoo

    Johnny Depp.

  • jw_ny

    i rather like the outfit…problem is with her makeup, and with that hat and her wig blending together into one big mess on and around her head.  

  • Zippypie

    LOVE those pants.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I hope when I’m 60 years old, I’m rockin it Cher-style!

  • I love every single thing about her. Even this HIDEOUS outfit. It just works. It simply does.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    AAAAAHHH!!!!  IT’S CHER!!!  I love her, I don’t care what crazy stuff she has on!  Thank you, TLo, you just made my night!

  • OrigamiRose

    Why is she wearing so much?

    /loves her to death

  • Is that Howard Stern

  • Call me Bee

    It is Cher.  Bow down, bitches. 

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Look, it’s Louis XIV! Ressuscité, bien sûr!

  • This is who Lady Gaga wants to be when she grows up!

  • Does she still have her hot construction worker boyfriend? Because that would complete the look.

    Cher: you are awesome. Don’t ever change.

  • MzzPants

    Quick!  Somebody stand her next to Karl Lagerfeld and start taking pictures.

  • ankali

    That makeup is TERRIBLE. I literally mistook her for Michael Jackson at first.

  • OMG, she looks like a lunatic. 

  • snich11

    Geriatric rocker chick!

  • guest2visits

    Cher in Paris… !  Why don’t we have more of that!   Cher you need to scoot around more and get some pics.
    I’m for all of this except the hat (which I can only partially judge since I can only partially see it) or the make-up.

  • oldbobbydraper



  • EveEve

    Something’s different. Well, admittedly something is always different with Cher. New nose?

  • boweryboy

    I loves me some Cher so I’m pained to say she looks like a corpse.  Or a waxwork figure.

    Lurve the pants. Would’ve lurved them more if they were shorter like on the model.  Or maybe she’s not tall enough to pull it off?

    • DeTrop

      I love Cher too but God she looks like Tom Jones in that first picture.  Enough already Cher.  We love you.

  • she can’t change; she’s done the surgical equivalent of preserving herself in amber, which is a shame b/c with her (original) bone structure, she’d have been an AMAZING looking (in a good way) woman “of a certain age.” Now she’s amazing looking in a wow-isn’t-there-a-law-against-surgical-interventions sort of way

  • I don’t know any 66 year old women who can wear harlequin patterned pants.  Love her!

  • Nancy Dunn

    I wish she had worn the original jacket! Gorgeous!

    I remember reading years ago that Balmain was one of the most couture of the couture houses, right up their with the Nazi Chanel. (Sorry, I just can’t with Chanel, given her history. What a disgrace that the line is so successful.) does anyone know about Balmain?

  • Qitkat

    Every once in a while, I want to give the internet, hollywood, fashionistas and my fellow humans a good old Mark Harmon style smack up side the head. This is one of those times. But if we were giggling over cocktails at a bitter kitten party, I’d tell you what I really think.

  • notdorothygale

    I remember her exotic, “original” face and as I behold this visage I think, “Lady, WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOURSELF??” She would have aged so beautifully without all the cosmetic tweaks. If possible, she looks older than her age. A pity.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    That woman has always known how to dress. But why oh why didn’t she leave her lovely face alone? 

  • Indigo54


  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Poor old thing. I remember her well. Loved the original jacket on the outfit.

  • iheartbuffy


  • RescueMe23

    Cher – I’ve always loved you.  I even wanted to BE you…but please stop getting work done.  The time has passed.  Let it go…walk away.

  • lobsterlen

    Cher … When I was 10 I talked my mother into buying me an Indian head dress and I sat in my room singing half breed for hours and hours. You were my idol.
    Why have you ruined your face. I have this feeling without all this surgery you would look fantastic. Other than constantly curving on your face you take care of yourself. You would have been stunning as you aged. Why?!?

  • Deedles

    Here’s the thing that’s funny about her eye shadow choice. I remember watching the Sonny & Cher Show when I was a kid and one of their regular sponsors/advertisers was Revlon. I distinctly remember an eye shadow commercial that was in regular rotation which featured a mediuim-dark pink metallic shadow. True story!

  • Cathy S

    I follow Cher on twitter. She’s hilarious.

  • marilyn

    Those pants don’t fit.  I could go with the crazy old bitch thing if the pants fit properly.  Because they don’t, that print goes rogue and is very hard to look at.  This is close to bag lady stuff.

  • She rocks!

  • Pretty sure I had that exact same “ROCK” pin, complete with rhinestones, on my bitchin’ stone-washed jean jacket circa 1985. Brings back good memories.  

  • A.

    I may be the unpopular one with my comment , but she is FINALLY starting to look like an old person…with really bad pants on. The boots, the eye make-up. Dreadful. And when you put her next to a model who has no work done in the exact same pants – it adds about another 20 years on her. 

  • Why is her right cheek bone pointy?

  • libraangel

    Cher has turned into that guy in the group ‘KISS” (what is his name – can’t remember)

    • libraangel

      Gene Simmons – I remembered

  • quiltrx

    It’s like she’s the Drag Queen version of Cher.  Which is something like ‘Inception’, I guess. 🙂 (and I mean this in a man-I-love-Cher kind of way!)

    And…for that jacket on the model, I would cut every bitch in this place!

  • The hat made me shout with laughter.
