As one half of the folk rock duo Sonny and Cher, the Goddess of Pop rose to fame in the late ‘60s, quickly establishing a strong sense of style that showed she wasn’t afraid of taking risks (or showing a little skin). And in the ’70s, she really hit her fashion stride, carving out a unique vibe that still informs her outfits today.
She showed off her toned abs in many two-piece bikini and skirt combos like the one she rocked at the Joseph Andrews L.A. premiere in 1977. She wore a similar design at the 1986 Academy Awards, adding a giant feathered headpiece created by longtime friend Bob Mackie to the look.
The costume designer was the mastermind behind a lot of the “Believe” singer’s most awe-worthy pieces including her 1985 sheer black and gold Met Gala dress.
But it isn’t just on the red carpet that the 73-year-old shines. She also rocks a much more laid-back look that’s enviably edgy and cool. Her off-duty uniform is typically comprised of jeans, black jackets and t-shirts. In fact, earlier this year she revealed that she lost her favorite skull and bones tee that she’s been wearing for over 30 years — proving that she may just be the most relatable fashion legend that ever existed.
From sheer ball gowns to completely bare midriffs to chill t-shirts and jeans combos, keep scrolling to see some of Cher’s most memorable looks of all time.
