Sneak Peek: Christina Aguilera's Upcoming Costumes

11/17/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

After dressing Michael Jackson for the World Music Awards, Roberto Cavalli has moved on to dressing another pop icon — Christina Aguilera. He has created ten one-of-a-kind looks for the songstress to wear on her upcoming "Back to Basics" tour, kicking off in Houston on February 20, 2007.  All the costumes will have a vintage flare, referencing everything from 1940’s-era Marlene Dietrich to 1960’s bathing suits.  This isn’t the first time that Cavalli has dressed Christina, and he explains "I am fascinated by the evolution of Christina’s musical style, as well as her personal style, which has become increasingly glamorous and sophisticated with amazing attention to detail — all values I share in my design sensibility." The sketches are beautiful, but we can’t wait to see them actually on Christina!

I am going to this concert and I can not wait to see what she has in store. She is such an amazing artist and I think she is by far one of the best out there. She cares deeply for her fans and always believes to do what she wants to do and not what other people think will sell hits. I love her and I am a huge fan! Cant wait to see the concert. Counting down the days!!!!

beth on

This is definitely one concert I will not miss! If you have ever listened to both CDs of Back to Basics, it looks as though those costumes fit perfectly with the music! Can’t wait to see Christina in concert!

Karen on

Roberto Cavalli designed costumes aren’t going to change the fact that Aguilera has a boring and detached stage presence. Danity Kane and The Pussy Cat Dolls could do so much better than teaming up with this screecher.

Becky on

i think she is extremely talented as singer, but seeing her on Saturday Night Live, when she sings it is so over dramatic. the mouth movements and all that. it is just too drama queenish. although i like that she has moved away from the skankiness.

Stephanie on

She always looks amazing. I love her choices. Check out what she has worn in the past! I wish I had her christian louboutin collection!!,com_browse/task,celebrity/celebrity_id,237/

Marina on

Aguilera finds it absolutely necessary to perform in her underwear..

claudia on

cristina can sing and dance. she doesn’t lip sing. ok becky don’t hate.

shopoholic on

Becky pleazeeeee!

Becky on

i don’t hate, just an observation. And it isn’t lip sing, it is lip sync and i didn;t say that she did that.

AnnieM on

If I looked like her and had that talent I’d wear whatever I wanted. She is the real-deal (Britney whats-her-face is now more well known for her marital farces than she is for talent – and there is a reason for that).

sara on

i went to the concert last nyt an it is gud but it seemed short but i think that was cos i didnt no ani of the songs she sang they are all her new songs she didnt sing mani of the good old ones but it was mint

night on

The real question is how is she going to dress that pet monkey of hers? The next burning question is why in the world was she allowed to marry a monkey?

georgii on

i think shes great n i cant wait 2 see her in concert on thursday! its gonna be great!1

lou on

just to say i live in the uk and saw christina preforming this weekend-it was amazing and anyone thining of oing should well worth it! she rox

Holliwood on

Hahaha with the comments about Christina’s mouth movements and what not. Obviously NOT a singer. Anyone who does sing, knows that some people get a certain sound by the way they move their mouths, vibrate the lips, etc. (and it’s obviously working for christina) You must have never seen the ugly faces that Jessica Simpson makes when she is singing…LOL STOP HATING and take a voice class already. Maybe you will learn something…:) Oh, and for those of you hating on the clothes, and what not….take a listen to STILL DIRRTY….and get the message she is sending just for you women out there who think so much about what she is wearing!!!

I think they are cute. Christina is a great singer; I have found something I like from each record she has made. I didn’t love the dirrty phase, but she grew out of it with grace and style. Please do not hate on Christina, she has had a very hard life.

Jasmeen on

I have the VIP backstage package to the concert and i have absolutely no idea what to wear especially since there will be a 2 hour pre show party that i will be attending with christina aguilera and the pussycat dolls. Any suggestions??

nichole on

i love Christina… from the beginning through everything. I believe she is a true artist and she’ll last longer than most teeny boppers like Britney… Christina is beautiful, wonderful, graceful and everything great! She might dance in underwear but she knows its not b/c she wants to get the HOTT title Britney obviously wants… but b/c she can and she looks good! Hands down, Christina is amazing.

Andre Grice on

Christiana is very talented and sexy

Candice on

I love all the positive comments from all those “true” Christina fans, for the rest of you if u do not like Christina why are u commenting n e way? Go view Britney’s off the rack and make her more famous for not wearing underwear and not caring for her 2 children like she should, instead of hating on some real talent, leave Christina alone!

Daisy Jones on

I went to Christina’s show at Wembley Arena in London and she was amazing! Although I am fully aware that she has great vocals, and for the record I am not hating because I am a huge fan, but I was standing in the front row and had a VERY good view; and on her microphone there was a little display window thing and there was nothing in it. The friend I was with told me there should be a battery meter and some writing as it’s a digital screen, so it made me thin; was her mic turned off? And if so, did she lip-sync hard bits or the whole show? I’ve been on Youtube alot and listened to the songs she performed and compared it with other concerts, and they sound EXACTLY the same. Maybe she pre-recorded songs especially for the tour, but I do think she lip-synced some parts (most likely harder parts). What do you guys think?

Camille on

Andre Grice Britany will last forever, not necessarily because everyone likes her but her lagacy will probably outlive Chrsitina’s. Christina is very talented but shw whines so much shes like a godamn banchee or something idk ho u can stand it and those outfits are barely a step u[ from a high class strippers. With a voice like hers she doesnt need those hidious outfits *shudders* and Jasmeen alot of people have hard life but they dont dress like sluts

a.j. on

both dresses r amazingggg !


I went to the concert in Houston last night and it was amazing!! She looked gorgeous in all of her outfits! That is a concert you surely dont want to pass up!!!

Joanne on

I think by far most Christina is one of the most talented singers to ever perform.It doesnt matter waht she wears she has an extrodinary voice above anyone else.

PansyAston on

The word is “flair”, not “flare”. Most of these beauties don’t have enough fabric to “flare”!!! Fabulous nonetheless!!!

kayla on

I went to Christinas concer in houston on febuary 20,(Back to the basics).And I admit that,that was the best concert I have ever been to.Christina sounded so much better live than on the radio.And christina is my idol nomatter who else comes around.I love her style out of everybody that is famous.

gracie on
