When She's 64 - Cher Style Then And Now

Only a 64 year old Cher could get away with wearing this outfit at the MTV Music Video Awards
Tasteful no, but hilarious yes
And at least she has a since of humor about it
From the Daily Mail
'I have shoes older than most of these nominees,' she told a cheering audience. 'I'm the oldest chick with the biggest hair in the littlest costume.
'Back in the day, I used to get thrown off MTV for wearing things like this that seem so tame now,' she added. 'That's when Lady Gaga was Baby Gaga.'
I've been thinking about 1970s Cher style recently because of this vintage turquoise jewelry on Beladora2.
 
The client that we bought the jewelry from was kind enough to provide us with a copy of this actual People Magazine cover from 1975 featuring Cher in all of her turquoise splendor.
I love the headlines
Donald Rumsfeld Ford's 'No' Man
and 
Led Zeppelin Bigger Than The Beatles
I will admit that in 1975 I had zero idea who Donald Rumsfeld was 
but I did listen to a lot of Led Zeppelin.

Two of my favorite things. Cher and torquois. I saw that show. Only Cher could carry off that outfit and still look great. Great post.

Sharon, one reason that I love estate jewelry is that it always has a story behind it.
Ruth, I could only dream to have the body to pull off that outfit!
Vintage, thanks for your comment and welcome to BHB.

Cher STILL has an amazing ass, ( or a great surgeon!) I still love turquoise...it is a classic and will never go out of style....

Definitely my type, though she's considerably older and to my mind off-limits. Still, my chums and I on the trading desk were asked, "Would you do her?" The answer was almost unanimously affirmative. Go figure.

I let out a whoop the other night while watching the VMA's. Cher and all her glory!

Didn't Cher wear that ensemble in a concert video a decade or so ago?

And I adored early Cher . . .
