Celebrities stole the show at the spring 2023 rollouts—whether they were sitting in the front row or walking the actual runways themselves (you caught Paris Hilton striding her at Versace? It’s hot!). But today in Paris, designer Olivier Rousteing’s new collection for Balmain sparked controversy over the best star of the month: a final walk from Cher. Yes, it’s a legend.
The unexpected moment saw Cher, who’s amazing at 76, wrap up the show rocking the French label’s spandex bodysuit design, which features sharp shoulder pads, a plunging neckline and textures exquisite marble. There won’t be a Cher moment without a bit of a stage, either, so she’ll be sure to wear those towering stiletto heels too — the death-defying shoes she wears, of course. walk in complete comfort.
And sure enough, Paris Fashion Week is far from over, with the big Chanel and Louis Vuitton shows to come, both on the VIP guest list. But Cher sees Balmain as a tough one to beat. Her catwalk moments proved that incredible style and confidence happens at any age — in fact, it clearly gets better year after year. The only thing missing is a microphone so she can tighten her “Believe”. But that’s just greed.
