For the past 40 years, fashion icon Bob Mackie has been the man behind Cher's most spectacular costumes. Months before the premiere of her Caesars Palace show, Bob and his team began working feverishly to create 17 looks for his most daring client.
From warrior goddess to Cleopatra, the costumes do not disappoint. Every outfit comes with its own wig, headdress or dazzling accessory. "She wears these kind of clothes like they're a T-shirt and jeans," Bob says. "It's just amazing. Who else can we do clothes like this for if it's not Cher?"
Bob says other performers would be terrified to wear the risqué outfits he designs for Cher, who happens to be the first woman to show her belly button on television. "A lot of fashion historians don't give her credit," he says. "I don't know who they think did it, but it was Cher."
