After announcing she’ll be back on the red chair at The Voice for the 5th season, Christina Aguilera took the stage of the MGM Grand Las Vegas during the Billboard Music Awards on May 19th, 2013. Unfortunately she didn’t sing a song from her latest album Lotus, but served as supporting singer for Pitbull once again. I’m not complaining because it’s always great to see her sing at a public event, but I’m just waiting for the day when she gets back the place she deserves in the world of music, which is certainly not the supporting vocalist. In any case, she looked smashing, wearing a very nice outfit and sporting a spectacular make-up and hairstyle.
Whoa! Christina showed off her legs with a short black skirt, pairing it to a black top and matching cardigan. She completed the outfit with a pair of sky-high metallic peep-toe pumps. Words fail when it comes to describing how much her style has improved since the 3rd season of The Voice. I love everything about this outfit, because it’s sexy but not skimpy, it’s event-appropriate but refined. I would like to see her sporting something more flamboyant, but she looked perfect like this.
Every year the magazine Time publishes a list of the 100 most influential personalities, from artists to leaders; this year, Christina Aguilera has been put in the list and none other than Celine Dion explained why she’s deserved it. Christina has gone through a hard time recently: she was supposed to attend the ceremony of the induction of Donna Summer to the Rock and Roll House of Fame, but she didn’t make it because of a high fever and upper respiratory infection. Thank God she didn’t miss the chance to walk the red carpet of the Time 100 Gala, which took place on April 23rd, 2013, in New York.
This is the first picture of the event I saw this morning and I must admit I was overjoyed: Christina looked amazing and she was posing with Lena Dunham!
She was gorgeous, wasn’t she??? Old Hollywood glamour at its best! She looked flawless and confident, wearing a demure black dress and sky-high peep-toe pumps. She pumped up the glam with an array of Lorraine Schwartz diamond jewellery (including an impressive diamond and rock crystal necklace), a lovely side-parted wavy hairstyle and her trademark red lips-red nails combo. I was in awe of her at the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards, but this time she looked even better.
When I last wrote about Christina Aguilera attending the premiere screening of The Voice 4, I totally forgot she would make another appearance at the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards! The show, which took place yesterday at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles. She didn’t walk the purple carpet, but opened the event with a live performance of Feel This Moment, along with Pitbull. Even if it’s not my cup of tea, the song is incredibly catchy and I love how it samples a successful song from the 1980s, Take On Me by A-ha. Many mini Christinas and Pitbulls joined the two artists on stage, for a funny and lively performance.
The most evident thing about Christina at this event? She was having fun on stage, and she looked better than ever! I think I’ve missed seeing her performing like this, just doing her thing and enjoying the moment. At the end of their exhibition, Christina pushed the green slime button and treated her partner with a disgusting shower. Ewwwww!
She may not be a coach in the upcoming season of The Voice, but it doesn’t mean she’s forgotten the impact that the successful tv programme has had on her career. For this reason, Christina Aguilera joined her fellow judge Blake Shelton, new judge Usher, Carson Daly and The Voice Australia judges (Delta Goodrem, Seal and Joel Madden) at the premiere screening of the show’s 4th season on March 2th, 2013.
She wore a sleeveless black dress with a flared skirt, chinched at the waist with a studded belt. Uncharacteristically she kept things simple in the accessory department, wearing a pair of Lorraine Schwartz hoop earrings only. She completed the minimal look with Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps.
Christina Aguilera has been MIA recently. Nobody knows what she’s up to, but I was very happy to see at least she’s alive She was spotted in late February in Las Vegas, where she supported her fellow judge CeeLo Green on the opening night of his show CeeLo Green Is Loberace.
She looked lovely in a black outfit, including a quirky blazer, matching top and trousers. She accessorized it with a fedora hat and a couple of rings – a knuckle ring with pyramid studs and a double ring with cross pendant. Too bad we can’t see her shoes in the picture above, but I’m pretty sure she was wearing high heels by Louboutin. After experimenting with nude shades, she’s back to her passion – red lipstick; she sported a nice grey shade on her short nails.
I was looking forward to seeing what Christina had in store for us after the end of the third season of The Voice and yesterday all her fans were given an incredibly emotional performance at the 39th Annual People’s Choice Awards. Just after her rendition of Blank Page, a lovely ballad from Lotus, she was awarded by Josh Duhamel with the People’s Voice Award, a well-deserved recognition. This is just one of the many awards she has received in her career, but I think this comes in a delicate moment: during the last few years she’s been constantly criticised by the press, haters and fans alike for her music and style choices. Well, this award proves people love her also thanks to these choices.
I love these pics taken backstage. She looks so playful and happy! As for her outfit, she sported a classic blazer-pants combo in black and white. I must admit I was quite surprised by such a conservative look, but she looked so chic.
All good things come to an end and saying goodbye is always bittersweet. This surely happened yesterday with the finale of The Voice: Cassadee Pope from Team Blake was crowned winner of this edition , the last one with Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green (Shakira and Usher will replace them in the 4th edition). Moreover, December 17th is Christina’s birthday, so her fellow coaches celebrated her with a special (and funny) video. I really enjoyed the episode, filled with amazing performances featuring Smokey Robinson (who performed Cruisin’ with Nicholas David; God, I love this man and his music!), Peter Frampton (who sang Baby, I Love Your Way with Terry McDermott) and Avril Lavigne .
I was a bit disappointed by Christina’s look. Don’t get me wrong: she looked lovely as usual, but I was waiting for her to sport black hair. That change didn’t happen because she wore the platinum blonde bob wig again, but there’s something else which didn’t convince me much. The Erickson Beamon body piece she wore (with chains, crystals and pearls, plus feathered epaulettes) was a showstopper, but unfortunately she paired it to a tacky black dress.
What a night! Yesterday the second last episode of The Voice featured the final live performances and included a heart-felt tribute to the victims of the recent Connecticut school shooting. I think this was the best way to get the evening started: it’s true the show is about glitz, glam and music, but it’s also true that its protagonists are not disconnected from reality. Moreover, I really appreciated the way in which the tribute was presented, with the coaches and all the contestants of this season holding a card with the names of the victims on it; for once, the focus was not on the killer, but on the poor victims, despite what usually happens in the news.
As for Christina, she sported two outfits. The chair look reminded me of what she wore last year at the finale (in that case, the black sequin blazer was by Dolce & Gabbana) and brought back some memories from the Back to Basics era, as my friend Jessica correctly noticed.
What was your reaction yesterday when you saw Christina Aguilera at The Voice‘s semi-final live results? This morning when I saw the pics from the show I couldn’t believe my eyes. She gave us a completely different look, so interesting to write about!
The mix and match of different prints is probably the focus of the whole look – polka dots and letters scattered on a white background; then comes the hair, inspired – according to her hair stylist Craig Gangi – to Japanese pop art, with those beautiful flamingo pink streaks. Last but not least, her make-up, with “giant cat eyes with no blended edges” and neutral lips, which surely achieved a dramatic effect.
Can you believe it? This is the second-last week of The Voice: the third season is not over yet, and I already miss Christina’s weekly appearances on tv. I’m excited to see what will come next in her career, but I’ll surely feel the void. But now it’s time to put sadness aside and to see what she wore yesterday, when the final four artists (two from Team Cee-Lo and two from Team Blake) performed live.
Now THIS is a look to die for! As my Twitter friend Jessica noticed, she looked like a modern Alex DeLarge, the charismatic protagonist of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange (1971), who notoriously wore a bowler hat as part of his trademark outfit. In the movie the bowler hat, symbol of the most conservative part of British society, appeared among the symbols of a cultural revolution, ruled by senseless violence and lack of any morals. I think Christina is a fan of the movie by Kubrick: you may remember she dressed up as Alex at her birthday party in 2008. I love everything about this look, especially her make-up (her signature red lips are back!).
