In fishnets and high heels, with a dash of turquoise and an audience of unexpected heroes, Cher left her mark in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Thursday.

The singer and actress was back on Hollywood Boulevard after the Monday premiere of her latest film, ‘Burlesque,’ which opens Nov. 24 and stars Christina Aguilera.

Cher’s mom, Georgia Holt, and son Chaz Bono were on hand as she cast her footprints and handprints in cement, then topped it all off with a healthy dose of gold glitter. Surprise guests included the 33 rescued Chilean miners, who cruised past atop a double-decker tourist bus while in town for the upcoming Thanksgiving special, ‘CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute.’

On the always interesting wardrobe front, an assistant’s tank top was called into emergency duty after the star realized the slip to her see-through dress was missing. But it was only a tank top, not a full slip, which is how we know her undies were turquoise.


Anything less just wouldn’t be Cher, would it?


Of course one of the Chilean miners has a mistress
