Oh, Cher. You crazy old bitch.

      holy pink eye makeup

      • kimmeister

        It’s terrifying!

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        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.)

    • http://twitter.com/CeeceS Cecilia Straney

      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.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      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. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Clydette-Wantland/673315286 Clydette Wantland

      Love it, love her.  Go Cher!

    • bertkeeter

      Shades of NORMA DESMOND…for real!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000905542323 Rhonda Shore

      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

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      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!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000393765005 Garcia Loca

      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

    • http://frederickvegetarian.wordpress.com sixgables

      Is that Howard Stern

    • Call me Bee

      It is Cher.  Bow down, bitches. 

    • ThaliaMenninger

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

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/DBSIHWVY4ECXGNXAXFXJMSCNIE Katrin

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

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      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.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      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

      ALL HAIL THE TRUE DIVA QUEEN.

      EVERYONE ELSE IS AN IMPOSTER.

    • 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.

    • http://twitter.com/mannahattamamma MannahattaMamma

      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

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1266410766 Phyllis Craine

      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

      OMG Cher!  PUT.THE.GLASSES.BACK.ON.   NOW!

    • ChaquitaPhilly

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

    • iheartbuffy

      lololololol.

    • 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.

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      She rocks!

    • http://www.facebook.com/karla.lien Karla Ash Lien

      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. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      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!

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      The hat made me shout with laughter.
