'Daily Mail' Spotlights Cher's "Daring" 'Dressed To Kill Tour' Outfits

UK publication 'Daily Mail' showcased some of the sparkling costumes that Cher is sporting across North America on her current 'Dressed To Kill Tour'.

With the pun-intended attention-grabbing headline "Titillating! 67 year-old Cher stuns fans with daring outfits during live show - including heart-shaped NIPPLE PASTIES", the article opened with, "She is one of pop music's ultimate showgirls. And, to prove it, 67 year-old Cher took the stage in Boston, Massachusetts, on Thursday in a variety of dramatic costumes which left fans stunned."

Though incorrect on the number of costume changes, the news publication was complementarity about the fitness icon's figure: "The ever-youthful singer endured six costume changes during the aptly-named Dressed To Kill tour, including a diamond-encrusted fringed dress with nipple pasties. Completing the look with a platinum blonde wig and fishnet stockings, the hit-maker - whose anthems include Believe, Turn Back Time and I Got You Babe - cut a fabulous figure."

It added, "Clearly appealing in part to her gay audience, Cher ensured her latest stage show was both camp and cool. One outfit saw her dressed like Cleopatra, complete with feathered head-dress, while another saw her sport a native Indian costume. Delighting fans further, she even wore her iconic ensemble from the 1989 If I Could Turn Back Time video, which saw her sport a sheer, full-length body stocking with a diamond-encrusted finish, leather biker jacket, thong and knee-high boots. Impressively, she looked hardly any different to when she debuted the look more than 25 years ago when she filmed the famous video on board the battleship USS Missouri."

The UK news site then compared the pop goddess' look in her Gladiator-themed gold outfit to fellow diva Beyonce: "She later changed into a flattering black wig, complete with a corset and pink sating-lined jacket, before transforming into a stunning incarnation of Beyonce Knowles, in which she wore a blonde wig."

Another news site, 'Entertainment', weighed in on the 'Closer To The Truth' singer's tour outfits, using the over-used "Turn Back Time" pun in their headline, "Cher has actually found a way to Turn Back Time..."

Whilst upping the amount of costume-changes reported in the 'Daily Mail', Sheena McGinley of 'Entertainment' highlighted the 'Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves' outfit as her favourite: "These are just a few of the ten outfit changes she made onstage. This is by far our favourite."
