Christina Aguilera gets a “new” look

Spl55342_0052

For the past few years now, Christina Aguilera has been working a kinda "silver screen glamour" look: she’s been all red lips and platinum hair, and rarely has she strayed from her preferred colour palette of red, black, white and grey, with the occasional pair of blue jeans thrown in. The Fashion Police have applauded all of this, and not just because anything would’ve been better than those chaps she used to wear…

Lately, though, something has changed. It’s like Christina suddenly got bored with classy (it can happen) and decided to get in touch with her inner rock chic. Her inner rock chic who we think is called  "Tracey", has a part-time job as a hairdresser and is a heavy smoker. We have no idea where we’re getting that from, it just seems to be what Christina’s "channeling" with this image. We don’t necessarily mean that in a bad way, although we’d like to see her lose the lipstick…

What do you think of Christina’s new look, readers? Is it a change for the better, or did you prefer the last incarnation?  There’s one more picture  after the jump…

    A collegue of mine sent these pictures around the office the other day. I don’t really know where to start with whats wrong with her outfit. For starters, that doesn’t even look like real hair on her head!
    And with regards to the polo neck, Pucci has a lot to answer for! It looks like the kind of thing a crazy art/drama teacher would wear.
    Why has she dropped the 40s glamour look for this??? Maybe her stylist has been doing LSD…

    First of all, she got the look from Lady Gaga, who CAN pull this look off. Christina…Not so much. Maybe Miss Aguilera likes to think herself as a Madonnaesque- style innovator…She should have stuck with the glamourlook. THAT’s a look that suits her. But then again, when we mortals feel like s**t about the way we look, we have celebs like Christina to look and immediately feel better.

    What was she thinking?!
    And that print does nothing for a girl with an ample bust. Particularly with a polo neck!

    I prefer the more glamorous look she had going before! The square cut of her hair isn’t flattering, and the shirt she’s wearing would look much better if it had a plunging neckline, but I agree with kdot6 about the print. It’s just not a flattering style for her.

    I reeeaaally prefer what she had going on before. This is just… tooo busy. The top makes my eyes hurt, and I liked her red lipstick better than the flouro pink.

    I definitely preferred the glamour look.
    She looks like an escapee from a bad 80’s rock video.

    Honestly, I don’t like any of Christina’s looks, and I dislike them all equally. I remember when she didn’t use a spatula to apply foundation, or use bathroom cleaner bleach to colour her hair. She was cute, with strong features. Now … she’s just Tracey.

    Totally agree with Amanda Nicole; none of her ‘looks’ have been good. She can be wearing a black Chanel suit and still, miraculously make it look cheap and nasty. She always looks like a hooker and is getting worse as she gets older.

    Oh…oh my god! Joe, get the kids! The day we’ve feared has finally come! It’s the giant kaleidoscope we’ve all known would come one day and eat our FACES!
    But seriously. This is a scarily close return to Dirrrrrty Xtina days.

    this is no fashion, this is ridiculous… I like christinas voice so much but her look is … ewww.. just horrible. I also like to change sometimes a little bit my style but I think there should be a constant keynote, which shows who you finally are… christina however is changing her image again and again – It’s just a show she makes to be under discussion.. but this is just my opinion.
    to her outfit: don’t like it at ALL… it’s so 80’s and you’re soo right about the “Tracey”-image… she would be a perfect cast for the film “zohan” … don’t you think so ;)??

    Natasha, I’m wondering the same thing. It’s like she woke up one day and said, “I want an Elvis sneer,” and so now she does it at every single opportunity. She has been trying to lay claim to it in interviews – “I have this little lopsided Elvis smile,” as though none of us will remember that she never did that before last year.
    Also, I prefer glamorous Christina. She looked pretty then. She looks strange now.

    Eep! Not with those melons lady. Noooo. Did she trip and fall into a Russ Mayer film? Is it just me or is she going all Donatella? Please, someone help this poor woman.

    When I saw these photos when they first came out, my jaw really did drop to the floor, for all the wrong reasons! Tracey, ha, that made me laugh!
