    wish i could buy it so great that jacket bet it even smells like cher xxxxxxxxx

  3. Oh wow so cool! Cher's stuff always sell like cupcakes!!! Wish I could have that jacket!

  4. Doesn't look like the same jacket. In video, there's no indication of a zipper and the end of the belt is straight (on auction item, the zippers are prominent and the end of the belt is angled.)

    1. it's the jacket, the belt was tucked in

    2. The promo shot here with Cher is different than the one she wore in the video
      look closely at the video

    3. Wow! how exciting, a true investment for the future owner and bidder. Owning something so historical when it comes down to the video let alone worn by one of the legendary Divas known today. I bet the rest of the outfit is in the pocket.

  5. the belt is obviously not the same as in the video...

  6. I'm in love with your jacket, gorgeous outfit!
