Cher admits she loves it when celebrities copy her style: “I don’t mind”
When it comes to fashion and style, there’s no denying that Cher is in a league of its own. Over the years, the iconic musician’s outfits have been used as inspiration by several celebrities for their red carpet looks and Cher finds it quite flattering.
The singer’s very first look at the Met Gala in 1974, a see-through outfit dripping with sequins and feathers has been recreated and altered time and time again by celebrities like Beyoncé and J.Lo, and Cher loves it. she told Vogue in a recent interview.
“I like it! I see all the young girls sort of wearing these things that I’ve worn all my life. They think it’s new, or they see a picture and they love it, so they do. their own version. Or they make my version. I don’t mind, “said the 75-year-old.
Even Kim Kardashian took inspiration from the icon for the 2015 Met Gala. She took to social media to credit her Roberto Cavalli number to Cher at the time, Us Weekly adds.
“Inspiration for tonight! Dear at the first Met Gala! I just met her and told her that this photo was my inspiration for my dress tonight, ”she captioned her Instagram. “She is so beautiful! So happy to have met her!
However, Cher recognized the fact that before she became a role model for many, her sense of style was something that many people did not recover at the time.
“We had a look that people really didn’t understand at all. We were so proud of our look and our clothes, but we couldn’t do a lot of shows, ”she explained. “No one was doing what we were doing. There weren’t any stylists to face strangers or do something really different.
Eventually, the singer teamed up with Bob Mackie, who she still works with to this day, and that’s likely because her designs matched her style.
“Bob Mackie was so ahead of everyone else and he had the luxury of never caring what it was,” she said. “It was never too little, it was never too bling. I have always been delighted with everything he has given me. I don’t think I ever hated – maybe a dress or two, that was about it, and it was because of the color.
Of course, sometimes she got into trouble because of her choice of outfits. In 1989, MTV initially banned its video for “Turn Back Time” because of her fishnet body thong. But Cher doesn’t regret any of her tendencies. “Look,” she said. “It’s not life or death.”
