Cher dons bikini/headdress for ‘Dressed to Kill’ tour kick-off
Despite having a huge “Farewell” tour in 2005, Cher is back at it — and now in an Indian-themed bikini — for her “Dressed To Kill” concert series. The 67-year-old (!) kicked off the tour on Saturday in Phoenix and looked good, despite admitting to a ton of technical/wig difficulties.
In a series of posts on Twitter, she wrote, “B4 showtime I was being fitted 4 costumes! Shoe man is punk, No boots, shoes! Learned new choreog yesterday. New wigs 2Nite! Killed ourselves … Everything was so last min. Some wigs weren’t perfect, but some just needed change. Never had costumes on till unite.”
It seems like the costume drama is continuing from last week when Cher announced that Bob Mackie, her designer of 42 years, was bowing out from outfitting the singer for this tour.
“The man who made all my costumes since 1972 decided he couldn’t do my last tour. No matter how disappointed any of u are, you don’t know my grief . . . Felt I had to tell you. I’m crying,” she wrote. Mackie responded, saying: “Nobody wanted to design this last tour more than I did! I am sick about it.”
However, all of the crying seems to have done Cher good — who can wear an outfit like that at 67 without their family considering shipping them off to assisted living?
