Fashion Icon Files: Cher

Y'all need to give sis Cher her props! I was looking at some images of her fashion from the 1970's and 1980's and peeped how impactful her style has been to the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Rihanna, Kim K, Katy Perry and many more of your faves. Quite often stylistas from the past have set the foundation for the newcomers and it's important we scope them out and give credit where it's due.


When it comes to Cher, everyday for her was a "Met Gala" look and pushing the fashion button was performed effortlessly. She's rocked plenty of looks from designer Bob Mackie and has graced five decades with glitter, sequins, feathers, leather, and straight up fabulous-ness. Let's take a look at some of Cher's iconic looks and remind ourselves why she is a revered fashion icon.
