Wear or Die: Cher’s Oscar Fashion Edition

Cher-oscar-fashion

  This week's Wear or Die was inspired by Fashion Police reader Molly, who suggested we force our readers to dress up like Cher – or die.

"Well, why the hell not?" we thought. And so it is that today you find yourselves in the unenviable position of choosing between one of the two Oscar night fashions above. Neither are outfits for the faint-hearted, but what if you HAD to wear one of them – or die? Which one would you choose?

The outfit on the left may look initially more frightening, but the one on the right reveals much more skin. Just to level out the playing field a little, we're going to allow you to ditch the hat/wig/whatever the hell that thing is shown in picture one. Don't say we're not good to you.

What's it going to be, then, readers: which outfit will you wear – or die!

    Ok, so it must be said: Cher is smokin’ hot, even if she chooses some questionable attire. That being said, I’ll choose the one on the left. It’s pretty fierce/ferocious.

    I’m going to go with the one on the right because it comes with a huge wrap that could be worn like a sari over it. Clutching at straws, I know.

    I never in my life liked the left look. It’s like an ultra-glam cave-woman outfit. Not my thing. French whore is more where I live. So I’d wear the right one.

    I think I’d go with the one on the left. It’s slightly better than the other…

    If I had my pre-pregnancy stomach I would happily wear the one on the left and pretend I was a villain from a bad fantasy movie. All I would need was a friend to dress up as Xena or Red Sonja to complete the look.
    Since my stomach is not fit to be seen I will have to choose death, instead.

    The one on the right – the fabric might be revealing, but I would feel better to have some kind of covering rather than all that naked skin exposed.
    She does have balls. You have to give her that.

    I’ve got to go with the one on the right. I’ve never seen a picture of the left one without wondering what exactly is holding the skirt up. It looks so… precarious. At least the sheer drapey one is a little more secure.

    I’d have to go with the one on the left. It isn’t sheer and therefore I would only expose my stomach, and my thighs could be left hidden.

    The one on the left (assuming you’re not allowed a bra).

    I think I’m going with the one on the right. I might look naked, but it’s prettier than the goth look. Besides, sheer dresses are “in” right?

    I’d go with the one on the right. I like the look of that wrap, long enough to wrap around and overly exposed areas.
    And does it come with the oscar???

    The one on the left for the huge hair. SOLELY FOR THAT REASON.

    The sheer one on the right. It may be exposing, but it’s sophisticated. The other one, ehh, it looks okay on Cher, but probably not on anyone else.

    I choose B WITH the hedgehog looking hat/thing. The more outrageous the better when your fashion inspiration is none other than Cher.

    Some papers around the world brings now up again, here in 2012, their outrage at Cher’s dress back in 2009 – I still think that she looked so damn hot out on tthat show… 😉
