Christina Aguilera In Elie Saab – “Burlesque” LA Premiere

Christina Aguilera attended the “Burlesque” LA Premiere with her co-star Cher at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater last night.

Christina wore an Elie Saab Fall 2008 gown.

I love the emerald green colour and the modifications on the bodice, but I can’t help but feel slightly let down by Christina.

I really expected her to go all out for this premiere. Guns blazing.

Had her look been too literal in relation to the movie it would’ve come off cheesy, but I would’ve preferred a bit of Xtina on the red carpet last night.

Demure Christina doesn’t quite work for me.

Christian Louboutin Eugenie pumps and Neil Lane jewels completed the look.

    She looks elegant, beautiful, hair and make up are perfect but you look at it and miss the drama that she’s so good at giving. It’s a great look but she can give us such better things.

    I totally agree with you. I don’t like when she wears racy outfits, but this “ethereal” version of her doesn’t convince me at all. The dress is gorgeous, though.

    i hate it, she turns Elie Saab into a beachy maxi dress with the alterations and that hair. Massacre.

      yes, very true !

    I think she look old, that make up is awfully harsh for this dress. When cristina is away from versace I cant barely enjoy her fashion choises

  5. J November 16, 2010 at 13:37 #

    She looks like a drag queen. Christina would do well with low-lights and a less harsh look.

    • KateS November 17, 2010 at 03:31 #

      I know! My first instinct was to laugh at how draggy she looks, but on reflection I think I feel sorry for her. She’s clearly lacking a good friend who’ll give her some honest advice about her hair, makeup and tanning choices.

    I thought she looked alright, but I loved the dress on the runway. If you didn’t tell me, I wouldn’t have been able to tell that they’re Elie Saab’s.

    The gown is beautiful but everything else is just wrong….Elie Saab gowns are not a joke,Christina should’ve though about that.What a RIDICULOUS look!!

  8. Claudia November 16, 2010 at 13:45 #

    I like the dress.. but I don’t love it..
    and I actually don’t like christina.. I don’t know.. I think she’s strange and ugly.. don’t know what people see in her..

  9. Leti November 16, 2010 at 13:47 #

    It’s a beautiful dress, but the makeup, the hair, and the JLo style sexy-face take it from fantastic to trashtastic.

      Hear hear!!

  10. Helen November 16, 2010 at 13:56 #

    She brought the xtina with the hair and makeup I would have loved if she had ‘de- xtinad’ both of these to go with the overall look of the dress. Love the color and simplicity of the style on her though.

    • Maria November 16, 2010 at 22:15 #

      Agree. Does she not realize how great she looks when her hair is not a mess?

  11. Alina November 16, 2010 at 14:23 #

    It could have been so beautiful but the hair and make-up ruin everything.

  12. Marvel November 16, 2010 at 14:24 #

    A nice dress but not for her.

    A tight herve leger would have been more fitting for her

  13. JJovana3 November 16, 2010 at 14:37 #

    WOW. This woman looks ridiculous. She’s a blonde Snookie. Just awful!!!

    • mm November 16, 2010 at 15:58 #

      I was thinking dolly parton all the way.

  14. maria November 16, 2010 at 14:42 #

    i cannot DEAL with that hair.

  15. robbie November 16, 2010 at 14:53 #

    oh god all i can say is drag queen!

    such a shame because that is a stunning dress!

  16. Gretta November 16, 2010 at 15:07 #

    There is nothing demure from the neck up. Im surprised her face doesn’t melt under all those lights.

  17. Eve November 16, 2010 at 15:12 #

    Christina is a gorgeous woman. This color suits her perfect. Just change lip color form red to plum. Love her voice.

  18. Laura November 16, 2010 at 15:26 #

    I’m not even giving this a second thought after that beautiful Atelier she wore a while ago. This dress is just there, not anything I’ll remember. I do like the color though.

  19. Clancy from Dallas November 16, 2010 at 16:44 #

    Has Anna Nicole come back from the dead!? Whatsup with her nappy weave!? I can’t deal with this.

  20. I'm Just Saying... November 16, 2010 at 20:01 #

    Demure? The dress maybe demure but that horrible hair and makeup looks like something that should accompany a red light.

    • Fashion Critic November 16, 2010 at 20:09 #

      lol @ accompany a red light

  21. Stefano November 16, 2010 at 21:10 #

    are you deliberately not covering Cher?

    • Alicat November 17, 2010 at 12:42 #

      lol Saw a picture of Cher next to her at this event. Somehow I don’t think she will gracing this high fashion blog with that mini dress!!!!!!!!

      • Fashion Critic November 17, 2010 at 12:49 #

        You are right

  22. karen November 16, 2010 at 21:39 #

    I don’t like this look at all. The color of dress is nice but her overall look is horrible. Her Pamela Anderson hair and makeup looks cheap and tacky. I can’t get pass her head to look at the dress.

  23. mochababe73 November 16, 2010 at 23:49 #

    If there were ever a time to wear a racy, edgy outfit, the premiere to Burlesque was it. I don’t know why she chose the premiere of this movie to was an Oscar-style dress.
    And, the runway version is much better than hers.

  24. Alicat November 17, 2010 at 02:44 #

    “Overblown Barbie”

    I saw a picture of her the other day with minimal makeup and she is actually very attractive. The hair, makeup, facial expression and huge chest turn this beautiful gown into something cheap and nasty. The total look is very aging.

    The dress is obviously beautiful, of course it’s E. Saab. Said that, I’m not a fan of her, i could seem to be mean but I think she looks like an old playmate who visited many times the plastic surgeon.

  27. Jo November 18, 2010 at 15:51 #

    Horrible hair. Horrible make-up. Horrible tan. Christina is a really pretty lady I don’t know what she was thinking…

  28. zandy August 15, 2011 at 14:11 #
