Cher proved that some styles are timeless at the prestigious amfAR Gala in France, 

Donning a shimmering black bodysuit reminiscent of her attire from the hit “If I Could Turn Back Time,” the 78-year-old singer captivated the audience. 

The event, a highlight of the Cannes Film Festival season, supports AIDS research.

The singer took to Instagram to share a series of pictures from the event with the caption, “Not my first rodeo.”

Earlier in the evening, Cher and her partner Alexander Edwards, who is 40 years her junior, shared a romantic moment on the red carpet. 

The star-studded evening also saw Cher sharing the spotlight with her longtime friend, Demi Moore, who introduced her to the stage.

The performance kicked off with ‘Walking In Memphis’ and included a vibrant rendition of ABBA’s ‘Waterloo,’ from her 2018 album Dancing Queen. 

Changing into a black curly wig and a sheer bodysuit for ‘If I Could Turn Back Time,’ Cher recreated the controversial look that MTV once restricted to late-night airings.

The night was not just about music; it also featured a charitable auction. A personal date with Cher in Malibu was auctioned for $150,000, benefiting AIDS research.

Demi Moore, in her introduction, praised Cher’s immense talent and iconic status, noting her multiple award wins and her 2015 amfAR Award of Inspiration.

Cher concluded her set with ‘Believe,’ sharing a poignant story about resilience and reinvention after being dropped by her record company at 50. Attendees were left in awe of her undiminished vocal power and timeless appeal.
