“Nobody else is quite like her. You can’t put her in a category with anyone else, really.”

Well said! That is iconic designer Bob Mackie talking about his most famous client, Cher. It was pretty cool when I spoke to Mr. Mackie on the phone about collaborating with Cher. I mean in an age of BlackBerries, texting, the internet, twittering and assistants having their own assistants… how many times does a designer actually get on the phone these days, right? Love it!

Cher Costume Las Vegas Bob Mackie

Mr. Mackie has been working with Cher since the early ‘70s and now he’s created several new costumes for her successful Vegas show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

“She likes to dress up and she gets bored and she decided she wanted something new,” the designer told me.

Boredom seems to be a big motivator for Cher. At least that’s the impression I got from Mr. Mackie. It sounds like she is always looking to reinvigorate her show and likes to re-do the costumes, especially for her vintage hits.

“I look back at what she’s worn in the past and hopefully bring some of that back, but I still give it a new look too,” he tells me.

Cher also added a new number to her show, ‘Fire Down Below’. It’s a New York street scene and Mr. Mackie created a glamorous zoot suit for the singer, who is very hands on when it comes to all aspects of her show.

“The queen is at the head of it all saying what she likes and doesn’t like,” he laughs.

There are at least a dozen costume changes and all the classic Mackie touches are there… the intricate beading, the feathers, the glitz. Her taste in color has changed over the years he says. “This year she loves day-glo green and hot pink, which she would have never worn before. And even though she wore orange in the ‘70s, she hates it and would not wear it now.” As for the designer’s signature sexy designs?

“Forty years ago, Cher could walk out naked and look good. She’s a little more careful these days, but shows enough that everyone still gets excited.”

    i think kw was referring to that drawing of cher in the purple suit, it looks as if it has a moustache lol, at first i thought it was actually a moustache, and it made me think that maybe that would be a bit too bizarre… even for cher and mackie! lol but i think that it’s actually supposed to be shading in the drawing… hopefully lol

    Daniel that is exactly right!, Jamie…are you kidding me, chill out!! You need to calm down, I say flamboyant drag because we have seen her in drag as Elvis, but never complete regular masculine attire. If that is masculine facial hair in the picture, it’s a first for her. Those clothes are being made in my neighborhood Bob Mackie’s shop is right up the street from me.

    LOL because it might be something new that she might not have done before.
    Don’t let yourself misinterpret. Even Daniel saw it and gave a….Lol too.

    Oh my goodness Cher, you are one of the very few ‘stars’ that can wear what you do! You look terrific in whatever you put on and I just wish to goodness myself and the girls could make the trip to America to see you at Caesars Palace. Unfortunately, that is not an option for us. But to see what costumes have now been designed by your totally brilliant guy, does at least give us a clue as to how you are going to look. I saw you at Wembley for your Farewell Tour, had a seat way, way up in the flipping sky near the ceiling! A disabled lady (which I am) it was a jolly hard climb but worth every single step and a night I will never ever forget for however long I live on this earth. My two grandchildren (girls) who now live with me via the Courts, were frantic to come with me but due to the situation they were in at that time (deplorable) they could not come. However, my mobile phone was over-used, cost me a fortune, and they at least got to hear the excitement you created simply by appearing from the crowd and of course you singing live. Now they are here, oh boy would they love to see you in person. One is 16 (with major problems due to her past) which we are battling, and the other is 13. My collection of your cd’s simply disappears a bit at a time periodically, and next thing you know, YOU are singing away in one of their bedrooms. Drives me up the wall sometimes, because I am supposed to be the Cher fan here!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hmmmmmmmm rather think you have two more. Love you Cher. Jan – United Kingdom

    Stefan, your comment towards me is inconsistant to what the conversation has been on here. Unless you have mistakenly wrote my name instead of someone elses or misread the above comments, I have no idea why you have put what you have.
