Cher, 78, turns back the clock as she stuns in a cutout leotard and permed wig at the amFar Gala – more than 30 years after the look debuted.


Cher revived the ’80s look at the amFar Gala in Cannes on Sunday, posing in a bodycon leotard and tights.

The pop icon, 79, first created the stark look in 1989 when she released her signature track If I Could Turn Back Time.

She wore a similarly daring outfit to the annual event organized by the AIDS Research Foundation in France.

The Believe singer proudly showed off her legs in the dazzling number and wore a permed wig in a nod to her heyday look.

Cher even pulled out the sleek leather jacket that completed the look all those years ago as she stormed the stage in her signature number at the event.

Cher, 78, turned back the clock when she rocked a cut-out leotard and permed wig at the amFar Gala in Cannes on Thursday – more than 30 years after the look debuted.

In 1989, the singer had just left Sonny & Cher to pursue her own career.

Years later, she revealed that the inspiration for her costume actually came from a conversation with her grandmother, who said she would like some ‘really nice leotards’ for her birthday.

Meanwhile, just before her performance on Thursday, Cher was introduced by Ghost actress Demi Moore, who she scolded an audience member during her brief presentation block.

Demi gave Cher glowing tribute as an audience member in the back seemed to spark with rage.

Posted by Ramin Setoodeh on Twitter, the video begins with Demi saying: ‘I’ll see if this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for.’

The actress continued: “I’m just making sure you’re really, really with me. Because this incredible woman that I’m going to introduce you to—she’s a Grammy winner, an Oscar winner, an Emmy winner.”

At this point, Demi paused, seemingly flustered by someone in the audience, before saying, “Are you an Emmy winner in the back of the room? I damn well don’t think so.’

The audience erupted in a mix of surprised reactions with some cheering before Demi returned.

“She is a style icon and my personal hair inspiration. And she was awarded the amfAR Inspiration Award in 2015.”

«Bottom line, she’s just one of the most talented, successful, and popular female artists of all time,» Demi continued.

«So please,» she said before taking another remarkably long pause as she stared across the crowd before continuing, «please give a hearty welcome to the incredible, one and only, Cher.»
