Christina Aguilera dressed as Burlesque co-star Cher for Halloween – and fans are living for it
Christina Aguilera has left fans gagged after dressing up as her former Burlesque co-star Cher for Halloween in tribute to the “OG trailblazer”.
The two music legends made cinematic history after starring opposite each other as Tess (Cher) and Ali (Aguilera) in 2010’s camp cult classic Burlesque. Now, Aguilera has honoured her former co-star, aka the Goddess of Pop, in the best way she knows how – by dressing up as her for Halloween.
In an Instagram post on Monday (30 October), 42-year-old Aguilera showed off her Cher-inspired outfit, which consisted of a silver-chained black leather corset, fishnet tights, and gorgeous leather jacket.
And of course she swapped out her classic blonde hair for Cher’s famed and fabulous curly black locks. The look is heavily inspired by Cher’s own sizzling outfit from her 1992 Love Hurts tour.
In the caption for her first video, Aguilera wrote: “Tess & Ali 4EVER” and lipsynced memorable lines from the 2010 movie.
In a follow up post featuring even more images from her epic Halloween photoshoot, she wrote: “On my favourite day of the year it’s only right to turn back time and tribute the OG trailblazer, Cher.
“Cher’s message through her music and style has left a permanent mark on the world and to this day, I still can’t believe I had the opportunity to work with such a legend!!!!
