It’s the 1970s–forget everything you know about the Cher of today. Lose all the coloured wigs and jewel embellished leotards, replace the waves with looooong, centre-parted black hair and drop the dance-pop hits like “Believe” for pop-rock ballads from the original power-couple: Sonny and Cher. The duo sang, danced and laughed on their hit show, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, but the real attraction was, of course, what Cher was wearing. Every Wednesday, she would appear on TV screens around the world, rocking some of the freshest hippie-chic looks—with a bod toned and taut enough to pull off even way daring choices.
But this circa-’75 era is just the beginning of a long and exciting journey for Cher’s personal style that also found her in iconic head-to-toe Bob Mackie for a red carpet appearance or slipping into a sexy rhinestoned bodysuit for a live solo performance after her and Sonny parted ways. Her personal style has continued to evolve and reflect the times, reminding why she’s the one and only Goddess of Pop (and will remain as such).
So let’s turn back time with these Cher-inspired looks from some of her greatest fashion days that you can rock right now.
