Christina Aguilera

Pride

CHRISTINA, 42, said she wanted to celebrate the queer community, so chose to work with designers who are LGBTQ+.

Reviews called the show “dramatic and dazzling” and that’s no surprise as the star’s saucy costume theme was PVC, with boob-boosting corsets and black PVC chaps, the singer certainly got down and Dirrty with her S&M-inspired looks.
