I think women at any age should be allowed to wear whatever they want to wear. It's not about the age -- it's about what looks good. There are many 20-somethings who wear skinny jeans who should NOT (they're not called "sausage jeans," y'all). And there are many 50-somethings who wear miniskirts who look GREAT. So why all the ageism? It's about what suits you, your image, your lifestyle, and your body.
So it's absurd when people get on Madonna or Cher's case for being "too old" to wear sexy styles. Jealousy, much? Take a gander at 66-year-old Cher in these tight black leggings and just TRY and tell me she is too "old" for them!
Cher stepped out at a movie premiere in Hollywood with her butt-hugging leggings, a black leather jacket, a floral scarf, and tinted sunglasses. She looked "amazeballs," as Rachel Zoe would say.
Is this "appropriate" attire for a woman who is almost 70? Who cares?! Now ... maybe if Cher had been wearing what Miley Cyrus was wearing the other day -- white Daisy Duke shorts that bared her buns to the world -- maybe that would inappropriate.
But not this ensemble. This is Cher. She's not some chair-rocking grandma with a blue rinse, a triple chin, and a belly down to her knees. Her outfit was appropriate -- for Cher.
Now, I will say one thing. The ass. It looks fake to me. I think she's wearing leggings with a built-in ass. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. But that butt is verging on a Kim Kardashian derriere. I'm just not buying it. I think Cher should have pulled on some Spanx and let it fly.
Cher, you look fab. Haters gonna hate, girl!
What do you think about older women wearing revealing outfits?
