Cher brought true grunge style to the 2022 CFDA Awards in New York tonight.
The multi-hyphenate artist hit the red carpet for the occasion with Chrome Hearts, attending as the date of designer Laurie Lynne Stark — who, along with Richard Stark, will be awarded the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award at tonight’s ceremony.
Cher’s ensemble featured black leather crafted into a biker jacket-style bodice with an off-the-shoulder silhouette. Topped with silver buckles and zippers, the punk rock piece was attached to a matching silk and leather slit skirt, layered atop fishnet tights and cinched with Hearts’ signature gothic silver crosses.
Cher’s attire was complete with a glittering diamond and silver bracelet, drop earrings and chain necklace.
When it came to footwear, Cher’s attire was complete with a set of black platform heels. Providing a sultry yet height-boosting finish to her attire, the musician’s pair featured thick soles and 4-inch block heels, complete with cutout crossed uppers, crafted from black suede. The set created a monochrome appearance, coordinating with Cher’s ensemble’s black tone and slick cutout details.
Cher’s red carpet moment marks the singer’s latest viral moment. Earlier on Monday afternoon, she was announced as the face of Balmain’s campaign for its new Blaze handbag collection, wearing the same jumpsuit and boots she closed the brand’s spring 2023 Paris Fashion Week show in.
