Christina Aguilera’s Style: The Voice (Season 5), Final Results

Have I died and gone to disco glam heaven? This was my first thought this morning when I saw pictures from the finale of The Voice. Christina looked simply smashing but that’s not the only noteworthy detail of the show’s final episode. Lots of guest singers (Celine Dion, OneRepublic, Paramore, Ne-Yo, Aloe Blacc, among the others) sang live, but the stage also witnessed the return of all the team members of this edition. Only three made it to the end, but I’m glad the show gave everybody the opportunity to perform again.

The Tunis-born designer had Sicilian parents but reached fame in France; I like to think of him as the French alter-ego of Halston – both of them had a sexy and independent kind of woman in mind. The halter dress chosen by Christina is made of black jersey and silver chainmail; the back is completely naked, a detail which adds fuel to the disco glam fire.

The best part of the episode, and possibly of the whole season? The surreal moment in which she shared the stage with none other that Lady GaGa! I know this sounds crazy but they actually performed in a duet (they sang Do What U Want, from GaGa’s Artpop album) and killed it! I would never ever thought I could see such an event because everybody knows about the beef that GaGa and Christina have had over the years. Rumours of them copying each other and of GaGa sabotaging Bionic have been circulating since forever, but it’s good to finally see them together in such a great pop moment, which I think will seal the peace between them.

vlcsnap-2013-12-18-09h42m29s195Although not a GaGa fan, I must give her credit for knowing how to put on a show. Fog machines in full action, a sparkly shell, beautiful dancers and a baroque chaise longue were the ideal backdrop for a flawless performance. Both the singers wore golden outfits made of iridescent taffeta with diamanté details: GaGa wore a jumpsuit with kimono sleeves, corset belt and huge shoulder pads, while Christina opted for a slinky long-sleeved dress with central slit and V neckline (paired to her trusty Very Riche Strass pumps by Christian Louboutin).

vlcsnap-2013-12-18-09h41m08s144Do you know what’s weird about this performance? It was not overtly sexy, but seeing them together was sexy indeed. Their performance was perfectly balanced, since no one tried to overpower the other, which I think was a sign of mutual respect (as Christina said later). Obviously you could hear Christina’s vocal abilities in full force, but this was balanced by GaGa’s own voice, which is powerful too, even if different from Christina’s.

Since this is the last post about Christina at The Voice, let me spend a few words to thank all those who have taken some time to stop here twice a week to read my style recaps. It’s been hard to keep up-to-date with such a hectic rhythm, but it’s been great and all the signs of appreciation I’ve received so far are the greatest reward. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! I love you ♥
