It's been 12 years, but Cher and her wigs are now BACK in the video for her new power anthem 'Woman's World.' Cher did Gaga before Lady Gaga, changing her wig more than her underwear. In this dance floor track Cher wears a Grace Coddington style red afro wig and a white and black zebra fringed wig. But the real show-stopper is her 'do made out of newspaper clippings - a cheeky nod to being in the spotlight for decades.

As for the clothes Cher wears leather trousers, graphic printed leggings, a black corset, sparkly vests and crystallised hoops. Her makeup is just as subtle as she sports dramatic winged eyeliner and feather lashes. Now we need to point out that Cher is 67. Yes, she's old enough to be a grandma and she is STILL shakin' it in body-sucking leather.

Cher stormed the charts in the 60s as part of husband and wife duo, Sonny and Cher, and went on to sell 100 million solo albums. Gulp. She has gone from a bell-bottom wearing hippie to a 70s roller-disco icon to a Las Vegas showgirl drenched in sparkle. There's the time she wore nothing but a nipple-grazing silver wig and the Oscars when she wore THAT sheer Bob Mackie sparkler.

To celebrate the return of the wigs, we have created a retrospective of Cher's style moments. Get your sunglasses ready, there's a lotta lotta glitz. We reckon the Cher archives have even more sequins than Barbra Streisand's.
