The King's in Memphis!

Gotcha! Of course it's not the King. It's our comical Cher playing dress up, and you can get it as a wallpaper today!

The first time Cher sported this look was for her version of "Walking in Memphis" in 1995 and she later reprised it for the VH1 Divas concert in Las Vegas in 2002. Other headliners for this show were Céline Dion, Shakira and Anastacia among others, but it's Cher who wowed the crowd during the special Elvis tribute finale when she came out dressed up as the King to belt out "Heartbreak Hotel".

Before or after jumping to the wallpaper page, remember to cast your vote for the "Strong Enough" poll and share your suggestions on your favorite western Cher outfit!

The "Strong Enough" Poll

It's time for the second outfit poll! This week you must choose which of these four outfits should be paired with the song "Strong Enough".

The 1st outfit is from the original "If I Could Turn Back Time" music video we all remember so well. The 2nd outfit is probably more embedded into people's mind than the first. Cher wore this outfit for her latest shows' finale (Farewell and Colosseum) to perform "Strong Enough" followed by "...Turn Back Time". She also made a big impact when she appeared with it at the 2010 Video Music Awards alongside Lady Gaga. The 3rd outfit was seen in the music video of "Strong Enough". And finally, Cher wore the 4th outfit to sing this same song during the finale of her Do you Believe? tour in 1999.

Which Cher outfit do you prefer for "Strong Enough"? (The poll is at the top of the left sidebar. Comments are welcome as well). At the same time, it will also determine the outfit for "Turn Back Time"... It's either the first or second, but surely the second outfit will have a spot somewhere in the playing cards.

New wallpapers!

Two fresh wallpapers have been added to the collection this week-end. There will be several new ones in the upcoming days. Today, treat yourself with the brand new Dark Lady artwork or Welcome to Burlesque!

It's a gypsy!

...It's a tramp! It's a thief! NO! It's SuperCHER! This is the latest artwork done, based on an outfit worn during her three year run at the Caesar's Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas. It's one of those colorful and excentric outfit you can't forget once you've seen her wear it to sing "Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves".

More drawing for me for the upcoming week-end and there will be new wallpapers too! So I'm asking you: Which artwork would you like to get on your desktop? Go see the Card Coaster and write your request in the comments of this post.

And many thanks for the suggestions regarding western Cher outfits! There's still time to share your ideas on the previous post. ...with a link to a head-to-toe picture greatly appreciated!

Wanted! Cowgirl Cher

Greetings to all! This week's poll gets a little different...

As we all know, Cher's got a few western-flavored hits under her belt that fans enjoy. Think of those great ballads such as Just Like Jesse James or the Sonny & Cher hit A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done. These two would surely need a spot in the Cher Playing Cards.

Ready for your challenge? This week, find your favorite Cher outfits that could be matched to these cowboy songs and write your suggestions in the comments below. You can send a link to a photo or video, and keep in mind that a head-to-toe reference is much more useful! The picture gallery at has the greatest and most complete photo collection out there. Take a visit!

Cher wallpapers series begin!

Good week-end to you all! The blog has now 10 fellow fans! Thanks to all of you, and keep spreading the news!

While you were busy answering last week's Dark Lady poll, I made you some treats and added a new wallpaper section to the blog. There will be more to come! As for the results for the poll, it's the original dress from the Sonny & Cher show that turned up as the favorite. You can see the performance from 1973 here. So you fellow Cher fans have spoken, it will be in the deck!

I will post another poll probably tomorrow. Stay tuned! Your comments and participation are always greatly appreciated.

The Dark Lady poll

The Cher Playing Cards is asking for fans' opinion! Considering the extensive wardrobe of our beloved diva, it is sometime a hard task to choose the perfect outfit to pair with each music hit. This week, the question is: "Which outfit makes the greatest Dark Lady!" In the run, we have #1- Cher's black veiled dress from the Sonny & Cher Show when she sang the famous single. #2- a witch outfit worn for a special Halloween performance during her Love Hurts tour in the early 90's, and #3- a black feathered extravaganza designed by Bob Mackie for a Cher Show in the 70's.

So which of these outfit makes the perfect Dark Lady, fellow fans? Answer the new poll (at the top of the left handside)!
