“Some guy said to me: ‘Don't you think you're too old to sing rock n' roll?’ I said: ‘You'd better check with Mick Jagger.’”
So said Cherilyn Sarkisian – aka the one and only Cher. And we’re sure you’ll agree that she made a damn good point.
At the age of 69, the singer-slash-actress is thankfully showing no sign of slowing down. Not only is she gracing the front of the new issue of LOVE – the über fashionable style magazine that’s already featured Kate Moss, Justin Bieber and Beth Ditto on its cover – but she’s also been revealed as the face of Marc Jacobs’ autumn/winter advertising campaign.
And we don’t blame him for being excited. From the moment she burst onto the popular culture scene in the 1960s as Sonny’s singing partner to her wonderful acting performances, Cher has been a consistently inspiring and individual presence in the worlds of music, movies and fashion.
Check out some of her most memorable – and outlandish – looks below. As the lady herself once said: "Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great." Amen to that!
