Fashion Flashback: Cher Turns Back Time at the VMAs

Posted on

It’s been more than 20 years since Cher first sang about turning back the hands of time, but at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, the 64-year-old singer really did seem to step into a time-warp. “So far I’m the oldest chick with the biggest hair in the littlest costume,” joked the songstress as she hit the stage to present the award for video of the year. Clad in a motorcycle-topped catsuit, that was a throwback to the iconic look she wore for her 1989 “If I Could Turn Back Time” video and subsequent concert appearances, like the one pictured above, taken at London’s Wembley Arena in 1992, Cher quipped: “Back in the day I used to get thrown off MTV for wearing things like that, which seem so tame now. And that was when Lady Gaga was Baby Gaga.” Cher then got the chance to pass the torch to music’s newest provocateur herself, presenting Gaga with the night’s biggest award, the VMA for Best Video for “Bad Romance.” Tell us: What do you think of Cher’s skimpy flashback? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester
