Cher's Show-Stopping Style Redefines What It Means To Be 70

"Until you're ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great."

Modesty has never been Cher's MO. From the midriff-baring costumes she sported on "The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour" to the larger-than-life Bob Mackie headpieces she's donned as a solo act, Cher isn't afraid of taking risks. This is largely why she has reached fashion icon status. 

Cher's unapologetic style continues to be remixed by pop stars, including Katy Perry, Rihanna and Lady Gaga.

As Cher turns 70 on May 20, the singer-actress continues to give her "all or nothing" on the stage and red carpet. So we celebrate her birthday with a look back at her fearless fashions over the years.

May you continue to live boldly, Cher
