This past weekend Cher donned a see-through body suit that was nearly identical to the iconic one she wore for her “Turn Back Time” music video in 1992. And to say she looks the exact same now as she did then is almost an understatement. Of course, she’s had the help of many a surgeon’s scalpel over the years, but still… it’s sort of mind-boggling to look at the pictures. Surgery is obviously helpful in maintaining one’s youth, but Cher looks better than you’d expect anyone to, no matter how much help they’d gotten along the way.
Cher stunned audiences when she first donned her daring black cut-out body suit 17 years ago. And the singer looked equally as amazing as she took to the stage in an outfit almost identical to the lace and gem-encrusted outfit at the David Foster and Friends concert at Mandalay Bay Events Centre in Las Vegas.
The 62-year-old was all smiles as she showed off her figure in the daring number, which includes thigh-high leather boots and suspenders. She first wore a version of the costume at the age of 46 in Berlin and fans at her weekend show were delighted as she showed that it really is possible to Turn Back Time. This time around, the hair’s bigger and the leather jacket is shorter – but the question on everyone’s lips is whether it’s actually the original outfit she wore all those years
Cher has previously admitted that she has had a little help maintaining her youthful looks. She confessed to having a facelift, as well as procedures to improve her teeth and breasts, and has even described herself as a ‘plastic surgery poster girl’.
…She has said: ‘Everyone says I am terrified of getting old, but the truth is that in my job becoming old and becoming extinct are one and the same thing… And becoming obsolete and useless is completely unattractive to me.’

Part of me feels like I shouldn’t be so wowed by Cher’s appearance, given her near-obsession with cosmetic surgery. But she has kept her body in great shape too – look at her legs! Again, I’m not claiming she hasn’t had help there, but obviously she must work out. She looks like she’s put on – at most – 10 pounds since her first body suit appearance. Her hips and thighs are a little bit bigger but still look good.
The Daily Mail wondered if body suit was the original – and it’s definitely not. The cut outs are different on the sides of her torso – there were two in the original, and there’s only one now. So there’s a teeny bit more coverage. No matter what, Cher looks amazing. Maybe getting to 62 and looking this good will feel like an accomplishment, and she will finally compromise a bit and allow herself to age. Or just go to the surgeon’s office half as much.
