Christina Aguilera’s Halloween Homage to Cher: Celebrating the ‘OG Trailblazer’

Halloween, a time for transformation and creativity, often brings out the most astonishing and inventive costumes. This year, the spotlight fell on none other than Christina Aguilera, who left fans and fellow celebrities in awe with her remarkable homage to the legendary Cher from their shared movie, “Burlesque.”

Christina Aguilera, known for her powerhouse vocals and dynamic stage presence, has always embraced her individuality. In “Burlesque,” the 2010 musical drama film, she joined forces with Cher, one of the most iconic figures in the music and entertainment industry. The film not only showcased their incredible talent but also celebrated the theme of self-discovery and empowerment, themes that resonate deeply with both artists.

For Halloween, Aguilera decided to pay tribute to the indomitable Cher by recreating one of her iconic looks from the film. Dressed in a glamorous, show-stopping ensemble, complete with Cher’s signature blonde locks and sultry makeup, Aguilera transformed herself into the very image of the “Goddess of Pop.”

In the video, the Grammy winner lip-synced to audio of herself asking her costar which dance routine she wanted to see. Cher, 77, replies, saying that she wanted to see “Wagon Wheel Watusi.”

Dressed in a cheeky black bodysuit with chains and fishnet stockings, The Voice alum then grooved while posing in a photography studio in the behind-the-scenes content.

“On my favorite day of the year, it’s only right to turn back time and pay tribute to the OG trailblazer @cher,” Aguilera began in a follow-up Instagram carousel that included images of the final result from the photoshoot.

“Cher’s message through her music and style has left a permanent mark on the world, and to this day, I still can’t believe I had the opportunity to work with such a legend!!!!” The “Lady Marmalade” songstress changed up her outfits in the upload, also wearing a form-fitting strappy black floor-length dress and a sheer, blinged-out onesie. “No one could ever fill the shoes of the great and powerful Cher. The love and respect I have for you is endless” Aguilera concluded.

In the film, the “Beautiful” artist plays a small-town singer named Alice Marilyn who leaves Iowa to chase her dreams in Los Angeles. Once there, she finds herself working as a cocktail server at the Burlesque Lounge, which is run by Cher’s character Tess Scali. Burlesque was the “Believe” singer’s first movie musical. At the time, then-Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper opened up about wanting to get Cher back on the big screen for quite some time. “She brings a soulfulness and gravitas to this character that will ground the story,” Culpepper said in 2009. “The only person who was more excited than I am is Christina.”

In a 2020 interview with Entertainment Weekly, the outlet caught up with some of the cast and crew a decade later as they reflected on the film. “I had always been inspired by throwback classic pin-up art and burlesque style, essentially all things celebrating the female body and sexuality, so I was already versed in the history and appeal of this world, conceptually,” Aguilera told the outlet. “I wanted a modern take on burlesque with a retro feel and a nod to its history and origins,” Costume designer Michael Kaplan added. “Naughtiness without being crass! There’s a bit of the Crazy Horse Saloon in Paris, the musical Cabaret, as well as the ’60s TV show Hullabaloo as well as the Follies Bergère.”

What makes this homage all the more special is the enduring influence of Cher in the world of music and entertainment. Cher has long been recognized as a trailblazer, consistently pushing boundaries and defying conventions. Her fearless approach to her craft and her commitment to being unapologetically herself have made her a symbol of empowerment for generations.

By stepping into Cher’s stilettos for Halloween, Aguilera not only paid tribute to a woman who has inspired countless artists but also celebrated the spirit of originality and self-expression that both she and Cher have championed throughout their careers.

The reaction to Aguilera’s transformation was overwhelmingly positive, with fans and fellow celebrities commending her attention to detail and her ability to capture the essence of Cher. It was not merely a costume but a heartfelt tribute to a fellow artist and an acknowledgment of the impact that Cher has had on the music industry.

In a world that sometimes values conformity, it’s artists like Cher and Christina Aguilera who remind us of the importance of staying true to oneself and embracing our unique identities. This Halloween homage serves as a powerful reminder that the influence of trailblazers like Cher continues to shine brightly, inspiring new generations of artists to fearlessly express themselves.

As the Halloween season comes to a close, Christina Aguilera’s tribute to Cher stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of the “OG Trailblazer” and the impact that artists can have when they remain unapologetically authentic.
