 Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj may think that they invented cooky red carpet fashion, but Cher taught those rookies everything they know. It was hard to miss Cher at the 1986 Academy Awards where she paired a full black feather crown with a barely-there black sequined bandeau top and matching sequin skirt.
