Christina María Aguilera (born December 18, 1980) is an American pop singer-songwriter. She was signed to RCA Records after recording "Reflection" for the film Mulan. She came to prominence following her debut album Christina Aguilera (1999), which was a commercial success. A Latin pop album and several collaborations followed which garnered Aguilera worldwide success, however she was displeased with the lack of input in her music and image. After parting from her management, Aguilera took creative control over her second studio album Stripped (2002), which received mixed reviews and produced substantial sales. The overtly sexual image Aguilera displayed during the promotion of the album became the subject of intense criticism and ridicule. The second single, "Beautiful" was a commercial success and sustained the album's sales. Aguilera's third studio album Back to Basics (2006) included elements of soul, jazz, and blues music. Mainly produced by DJ Premier, it was released to strong sales and positive critical reception. Aside from being known for her vocal ability, musically she includes themes of dealing with public scrutiny, her childhood, and female empowerment. Aguilera's work has earned her numerous awards including five Grammy Awards amongst eighteen nominations. She has sold 30 million albums worldwide. On January 12, 2008 Aguilera gave birth to her son, Max Liron Bratman, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. To repay her fans for their support during her pregnancy, Aguilera released an exclusive video on her official website of "Save Me From Myself" a track from her Back To Basics album. The personal video featured footage on her wedding day with Bratman.
Christina Aguilera seen on Mar 04 2011 in West Hollywood, CA. Putting one foot in front of the other, Christina Aguilera heads home from dinner at Osteria Mozza with boyfriend Matthew Rutler in West Hollywood on March 4… just days after her man received a DUI and she was taken into custody after a booze fueled meal at the same eatery. Hmm… call me crazy, but isn't it a little soon to be heading down the same road? Luckily this time Christina and her man called a car to take them home, stepping into their chauffeured ride shortly after 1am. Despite the mess consuming her personal life, Christina looked pretty put together for her fancy dinner out, wearing a silky black tuxedo jacket (like Bailey 44's Gary Glitter Jacket in Black) with a pretty jacquard knee length skirt peeking out (try Betsey Johnson's Jacquard Party Dress in Grey) and peep toe pumps (spice it up with Farylrobin's Jessica in Black). Christina carried a petite clutch under her arm (try Inge Christopher's Ibizia East/West Clutch 35 in Black, wearing her platinum extensions long and curled for the occasion. What do you think of Christina's ensemble, does she look like she's doing okay? According to Us Weekly, a source at the restaurant reported the couple went through two bottles of wine without hesitation: "She acted as if the arrest never happened. When their server offered them dessert, they asked for more wine. [Upon leaving] she seemed tipsy." A friend continued, "She should see the arrest as a wake-up call, but she doesn't. She doesn't think things are that bad." A second "friend" alleges: "She's nearly fall-down wasted nearly every night." Yikes! You can't believe everything the tabloids say, but do you think Christina is in serious trouble? From her recent issues flubbing the National Anthem and falling down on stage at the Grammies, I have to say it's questionable. Whatever's going on behind the scenes, I hope she's okay!
Christina Aguilera seen on Jan 29 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Projecting an orange glow at LAX, Christina Aguilera catches a flight with boyfriend Matthew Rutler on January 29 out of Los Angeles. Seriously, lay off the spray tan Christina – how is she not setting off some sort of alarm going through security?! Christina wore a very casual 'fit for her flight, wearing a fun graphic tee (check out Rebel Yell's Hollywood Rocker Tee in White) with an oversized charcoal zip-up hoodie (get the cozy boyfriend look in Monrow's 3/4 Oversized Hoody in Black) and of course, a pair of black leggings (go for a more substantial pair like J Brand's classic 901 Legging in Pitch). Seriously, when will she ever move on from the leggings look? Flares would be a great new look for her, I hope one of her reinventing-herself periods is coming up soon! Christina schlepped around the airport in a pair of black ballet flats, topping her look with a black fedora and black nail polish. Christina was presumably catching a flight to Brazil, where she turned up at a press conference in Sao Paulo to promote Brazilian Fashion Week on February 2. At the conf Christina announced to the press she will be collaborating with the Brazilian department store C&A on a clothing line, sharing with the paps that while she is committed to the campaign, she didn't have time to sight-see on her short trip to Sao Paulo as she is expected back in the USA today to perform the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLV in Dallas. Christina chatted with Access Hollywood about how honored she is to have been chosen: “I have been performing the Anthem since I was seven years old and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true. I am really excited to be part of such an iconic event.” Between this feat and her new fashion career, it seems nothing can hold Christina down! I just hope she won't be wearing leggings at the game this afternoon…
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 31 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Getting off to a very comfy start on New Year's Eve, Christina Aguilera heads to lunch at the Ivy in West Hollywood with beau Matthew Rutler on December 31. Christina stepped out of her SUV in – what else? – a pair of black leggings, this time paired with a camo long sleeve shirt (try switching it up with Robin's Jeans' Benson Brown Camo in Brown Camo as an alternative to the legging) and a puffy vest (start warm in Twisted Heart's Chantal Puff Vest in Black). Christina topped the look with a charcoal beanie, carrying a star embossed black tote (try Linea Pelle Collection's Dylan Zip Tote in Black) and trekking around in a pair of black knee high boots (like Farylrobin's Mandy Tall Lug Sole Boot in Black). What do you think of Christina's laidback look, is this better or worse than her usual style? I've got no comment just yet! In regards to her plans for the evening, Christina revealed she's throwing herself a belated 30th birthday bash: "My actual birthday was in December and I turned 30! It was a big one - the next chapter of my life. But, because I was working so much on the movie, I postponed my birthday party, so New Year's Eve is my big 30th birthday party." Sounds like a great way to officially part ways with the old and welcome the new, right?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 27 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Taking advantage of post-holiday deals, Christina Aguilera couldn't resist a little shopping with beau Matthew Rutler at Fred Segal in West Hollywood on December 27. Looking slightly annoyed (with the photogs or with her new man?) Christina made her way into the store in a comfy layered outfit, starting with an Andy Warhol graphic tee (try Rebel Yell's White Eagle Tee in White) with a cropped jacket (like Muu Baa's Double Zip Relax Jacket in Black), striped scarf (love the unique print of Improvd's Scarf in Black & White) and her favorite black leggings. Seriously, as one of you readers perfectly worded it, someone needs to tell her that leggings aren't pants! Christina paired her non-pants with suede buckled boots (try Farylrobin's Millie Military Boot in Dark Brown), carrying a fun cherry red tote (like Julie K Handbags' Robin in Washed Leather Red) to match her lipstick, topped by a classic fedora. What do you think of Christina's layered look, does it suit her? All I can hope is that she's visiting the denim section at Fred Segal – anything to replace her used and abused leggings! After a tumultuous few months including a hectic international press tour, Christina returned to LA just in time to relax for the holidays with her son Max and new beau Matthew. The threesome was spotted grabbing breakfast at The Farm of Beverly Hills on Christmas Eve, getting the day off to a healthy start. No matter where life takes her, Christina has made it clear her priorities haven't changed since her divorce: "My focus first and foremost is my son Max. More power to single moms and those out there doing it. I was raised by a single mom. But you know what, at the end of the day….He’s the love of my life. I adore him and he’s such a character and he’s so happy and at the end of the day, that’s what’s most important." It's the little things in life! Do you think it looks like she's moving along just fine?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 16 2010 in Berlin, Germany. Making a dramatic appearance on the red carpet, Christina Aguilera attends the Berlin premiere of Burlesque on December 16. Striking a playful pose, Christina chose a gorgeous billowing fuchsia Alberta Ferretti gown for the occasion (indulge in pretty pink frocks like Sue Wong's Floating Front Maxi in Raspberry or the exquisite Beaded Fuchsia Maxi Dress in Fuchsia) and even added regionally appropriate crown braids with pink extensions laced through. What are your thoughts on her interesting hairstyle choice? As a final touch Christina wore a pair of gorgeous diamond accented hoops (try Alex and Ani's affordable Constantine Endless Hoops in Silver) and a sparkling cocktail ring (try Megan Greene's unique Fanny II Ring in Gold/Silk). I can never get enough pink, so this dress works for me, but between the voluminous layers, large knot at the bust and the chunky hair, it looks like she's put on a few pounds over the past few weeks. Do any of you agree or is it just the way she's posing? From the days of MTV's "Diary" documentary series we know Christina loves to pig out on fast food while she's touring, and a source at the Beverly Hills Hotel reveals she hasn't outgrown her junk habits. Before leaving town for Europe, Christina spent a few days holed up in a bungalow at the iconic hotel with new beau Matthew Rutler, and it appears they took advantage of the lull in her schedule: "She ordered a lot of room service. She loves fried food - chicken fingers, burgers, pizza. They spent a lot of time in their room eating and hanging out." The average American allegedly gains about 5 lbs pigging out during the holidays each year – do you think Christina has fallen into this tempting trap?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 11 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Enjoying her time abroad, Christina Aguilera exits her hotel with new beau Matthew Rutler in London on December 11. Christina's new man has been accompanying her on her international press tour for Burlesque, making appearances in Japan, Paris, and Berlin over the past few weeks. Guess he hasn't found work since becoming Christina's full time man after she filed for divorce from Jordan Bratman in October? On this occasion Christina was heading off to prep for her appearance on The X Factor finale, where she performed a duet with finalist Rebecca Ferguson (unfortunately, she didn't win). In between the London premiere of Burlesque and her performance, Matt and Christina enjoyed a night out at Mahiki nightclub, where they were spotted departing in the wee hours of the night on Friday. Looks like things are moving along just fine for this new couple! While heading off to the show, Christina dressed casually in black leggings (try Ella Moss' comfy terry Paz Legging in Black) with a white hankerchief hem top (like Rebel Yell's White Eagle Tee in White) and an edgy black leather jacket (try Muu Baa's Double Zip Relax Jacket in Black). Christina layered up in all black accessories, from her fedora (similar to Lucky Brand's Suede Hat in Black), oversized sunnies, cashmere scarf (check out Lucky Brand's Soft Shore Scarf in Black) and even her coffee cup. As a final touch, Christina accented the look with fun leopard print heels, crimson lipstick and a matching manicure. What do you think of her casual look, are the leggings still working for her? I'm getting sick of seeing the same thing over and over, but I do think that for some reason this rendition looks more polished than usual. Maybe she just appears more confident holding Matt's hand wherever she goes? While some are speculating Christina is moving on a little fast from her five year marriage, she recently opened up to People to explain how their relationship began: “Matthew is a special person. We had a really strong friendship on the movie. He’s the kind of person you could spend hours on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it’s daylight… Once I filed for divorce, we started dating. I’m not trying to jump into anything. I just left a five-year marriage. I’m taking it slow and trying to be happy.” As for whether or not they have a future together, she continued: "There’s a love there, yes. I’m having fun, I’m dating and it’s something I haven’t had in a really long time." I guess we'll just have to wait and see where this goes – and look out for more candid interviews!
Christina Aguilera seen on Nov 21 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Quickly recovering from the news of her split last month from husband Jordan Bratman, Christina Aguilera is spotted out holding hands with her rumored new beau on November 21 and November 24 in Los Angeles. On the first sighting (on the left), Christina was spotting leaving her hotel with her new man after performing "Express" from Burlesque at the American Music Awards on Sunday, heading out again to the Abbey nightclub in West Hollywood on Wednesday, exiting with a red rose and lots of laughs as Christina and new man tried to make a quick exit to her SUV. Both nights out Christina started with black jeggings (can't go wrong with J Brand's 901 Legging in Pitch), topping off comfy tees with two different military jackets (make the trend work with Kill City's casual Military Coat in Army Green or Walter's more refined Military Band Coat in Moss). Christina also rocked a black studded tote the first night (like Linea Pelle's Perry Stud Large Tote in Black) and kept up her penchant with black studded boots the next night (try Farylrobin's Millie Military Boot in Dark Brown). Personally I think both looks are a little low-key for a night out, especially in Hollywood – what are your thoughts on Christina's style? As I'm sure you're all wondering, who exactly is this new guy she's holding hands with? A set assistant she met filming Burlesque, named Matthew Rutler. The two were first spotted out together on a double date with Nicole Richie and Joel Madden at Soho House on November 5, after which a source explained their relationship to People: "She met [Matthew] on [the Burlesque] set and, during a difficult time, leaned on as a friend. After she and Jordan separated, the friendship turned romantic.” But not so fast – Matt's own mother is defending Christina in this sitch, telling the paps: "I can tell you that they are absolutely not dating. Christina needs a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen to her problems, and that is exactly what Matthew is doing." Guess we'll have to see which direction this rebound goes!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 27 2010 in Los Feliz, CA. Moving along with Max, Christina Aguilera takes her son out for a day of shopping at La La Ling's children's boutique in Los Feliz, CA on October 27. Christina let her tee do the talking, wearing a top emblazoned with the positive mantra "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" (portray your own upbeat message like Bejeweled's In Love With Life Tank in White) over charcoal leggings (check out Gold Hawk's Wing Leggings in Dusty Grey) with red flip-flops and a cropped leather jacket (try Improvd's Fitted Leather Jacket in Black). Christina topped it off with a plaid hat (check out Rails' Herringbone Hat in Black) and a black studded tote slung over her shoulder (similar to Rough Roses' Riley Crossbody Flap Handbag in Black). What do you think of Christina's laid back look, does it seem like she's having fun? In the wake of celebrity break-ups, it always seems like a slew of allegations of who cheated on who perpetually follow. In Christina's case, the tabloids have been reporting an even juicier story: Christina is finding comfort in the arms of none other than Lindsay Lohan's leftovers, Samantha Ronson. According to an insider: "They've known each other forever and they're good friends. Samantha was in Mexico with Christina for Nicole's [Richie] bachelorette party." There were indeed photos of them snapped together laying out by the pool, but the source continues that since the divorce, "The two have been inseparable... Christina Aguilera really lets down her guard around Sam. They're very comfortable with each other." Uh oh, LiLo's blood must be boiling in rehab! Samantha has publicly denied the affair, but from this photo of her snapped leaving Christina's house at 2am on the night the news of the divorce broke, do you think the paparazzi are on to something?
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 26 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Newly single Christina Aguilera gives the paps a wave as she arrives at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA on October 26. After reports surfaced Christina has been staying in a hotel while soon-to-be-ex hubby Jordan Bratman moves out of their mansion, it appears the SLS is the one as Christina was spotted later that afternoon checking out with her toddler Max, followed by several carts of luggage. As she arrived home from a meeting, Christina stepped out in a tight taupe mini dress (try Isabel Lu's Chain Link Spaghetti Dress in Nude or add a playful element with Corey Lynn Calter's Strapless Striped Grey in Ivory/Grey) topped with a long white cardigan (like Elizabeth Gillett's Kyra Cardi in Ivory). Christina matched her classic red lipstick to her red patent slingbacks (add a pop of color to your look with Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Patent Peep Toe in Sugar Coral), wearing her platinum blonde locks in voluminous curls. What do you think of Christina's look here? There's nothing ground breaking about it, but she does look healthy and happy given her current situation. Christina has been quiet about the details of her divorce, but she sat down for exclusive interview with Redbook magazine (which will be featured in the December issue) to shed some light on what she's going through: “It’s not easy and there have been a lot of tears and sadness. It’s impossible to redefine yourself and your life overnight. Thankfully, I have my mom and a small group of close friends who are there for me 24/7 and whom I can trust and depend on. On days when it feels impossible to even get out of bed, much less function as a mother, their support and encouragement have kept me moving forward.” It sounds like she's on the road to recovery – stay strong, mama!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 15 2010 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Seeking an escape from her personal drama, Christina Aguilera leaves her troubles on the mainland and heads to Honolulu, Hawaii with a few pals for the grand opening celebration of the Waikiki Edition Hotel on October 15 and 16. After officially filing for divorce from hubby Jordan Bratman on Thursday, Christina jetted off to the islands the following day to let loose. Apparently when the wedding ring comes off the tight bandage dresses come out for Christina! The first night she stepped out in a bust boosting coral bandage frock (if you love the sugary sweet shade try Luc by Lucy's Cut Out Bella Dress in Coral) paired with sparkly studded Christian Louboutin pumps, with beachy waves complementing her tan. The following night Christina headed out once again in a curve hugging lilac dress accented with slimming coral seam lines (brighten up your look with Meghan Los Angeles' Ruby Dress in Grape complete with sexy back detail), this time paired with gold strappy stilettos (like Gwyneth Shoes' Omyrah in Gold). Christina accessorized her second look with a few shiny silver bangles (like Alex and Ani's Expandable Wire Bangles in Silver) and a silver cocktail ring on each hand (love Anna Beck's Sterling Silver Studded Band Ring in Silver), once again rocking beachy waves and glossy red lipstick. What do you think of Christina's party attire, do you think it's safe to say she's single and ready to mingle? According to the legal docs, Christina is asking for joint custody of her son Max, whom she left on the mainland to spend some time with his daddy over the weekend. From the looks of things it seems as though both parties are doing their best to deal with the sitch – let's hope they can work things out without the claws coming out!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 07 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Putting on a somber face, Christina Aguilera makes her way out of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel with a gal pal at her side in Los Angeles on October 7. Christina headed to a meeting in a business minded sheer blouse with long sleeve ties (like Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Long Sleeve Button Front Blouse in Black/Grey or try a trendy dot print like Nanette Lepore's Polka Dot Top in Black/Cream) over a black tank and leggings (try Corson's super flattering Interlock Legging in Black). Christina paired the look with plain black pumps (this fall trade in your basics for a fun bootie like Farylrobin's Beth Ankle Boot in Black) with a pebbled black hobo in her hand (check out Danielle Nicole's Studded Kristi in Black), accessorizing with silver hoop earrings (try Anna Beck's Bali Silver Double Hoops in Silver) and black oversized sunnies. As always she couldn't leave the house without a perky red pout! What do you think of Christina's business casual attire, would you wear this to a meeting? I think the leggings and loud lipstick is getting old for her, but given her current situation I can't blame her for falling back on her comfort style. As you've probably heard by now, it was leaked earlier this week that Christina and her husband of five years have been separated for a month and are now living apart. A source told Us Weekly: “They were very much in love. But over the last six months, it became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.” Christina herself confirmed the news in a statement to People later in the week: "Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son Max remains as strong as ever." My heart goes out to her, but I guess this is proof for all of you who always commented that Christina looks unhappy whenever she and Jordan were spotted out on date nights together. Hope she's doing okay!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 02 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Getting down to business, Christina Aguilera pays a visit to a recording studio in Hollywood on October 2 with her "Lil Stink Bomb" Max at her side. After her super tan, super platinum appearance at LACMA last week, Christina seems to have toned things down for the everyday, giving her tresses a break from the straightener (and possibly the hairbrush?) for the day. For her studio sesh, Christina started with a pair of white marbled leggings with ankle zippers (check out Work Custom Jeans' Zip Skinny in Acid Rain) and a slouchy tunic with an animal emblazoned on the front (I'm loving Monrow's Botanical Oversized Tee in Blue for fall), letting her gold circle pendant necklace swing freely (check out Ariel Gordon's Large Circle Pendant Necklace in Gold). As a final touch Christina brightened up the look with fiery peeptoes that match Max's Converse sneaks (add a little color to your look with Coye Nokes' Jacqueline 70 Peep Toe in Sugar Coral). What do you think of Christina's daring leggings here, would you be brave enough to wear such a vivid print? Besides caring for her little one, Christina is lending her voice to ensure all moms around the world get the nutrition their kids deserve as an ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme. After appearing in a Yum! Brands World Hunger Relief campaign, Christina spoke out about what moves her: “I saw the faces of hungry children in Haiti and in Guatemala on relief trips with the World Food Programme and it was heartbreaking. As a mother, I know how critical the right foods at the right time are for kids and that’s why I’m so passionate about fighting hunger and lending my voice to the world of hunger relief effort.” Great to see her getting involved! Are any of you participating in food drives this fall?
Christina Aguilera seen on Sep 25 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Turning up the heat (not to mention the tanning bulbs!) Christina Aguilera is one voluptuous vixen at a private event called "The Unmasking" held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on September 25. Christina arrived at the event in full diva form to sing four of her biggest hits in celebration of the opening of the new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion. Christina came dripping in decadence in a champagne Atelier Versace gown with silver accents (get the lavish look in Sue Wong's Beaded Flapper Maxi in Ivory or the Grecian Goddess Open Back Dress in Ivory/Gold), adding a flashy Stephen Webster bracelet and rings (love the ornate design of Amrita Singh's Ayau Cuff in Silver) and a shiny Christian Dior clutch to complete the look (I love the gold accents on Inge Christopher's Armadillo Trapezoid Clutch in Gold). What do you think of Christina's over the top ensemble, does it work for her? I don't know how she hasn't passed out from the fumes of all that hairspray, but I do have to say if anyone can pull off the diva look it's Christina. Just lay off the bronzer next time, orange isn't a good look for anyone! Christina's tan might be partly natural, as she just returned from a girl's getaway in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico last weekend. Christina headed south to celebrate fellow mama Nicole Richie's bachelorette party, complete with plenty of margaritas and splish splashing in the pool. No word on when Nic's wedding will actually take place, but you can bet Christina will be there to see her finally walk down the aisle!
Christina Aguilera seen on Sep 12 2010 in New York, NY. Debuting a brand new look, Christina Aguilera is barely recognizable under her newly revamped blonde tresses at a charity function hosted by Susan Sarandon at NYC's Lincoln Center on September 12. Talk about a 180! Christina strutted her stuff at the event celebrating John Lennon's 70th, the unveiling of a Montblanc education initiative and a screening of the new film Nowhere Boy all in one night. Getting glammed up in D&G, Christina worked the red carpet in a curve hugging black strapless frock (get the classic look with James Perse's Tube Dress in Black or Wish's Contact Bandeau Dress in Black) paired with peeptoe Christian Louboutins (add a textural sheen with Coye Nokes' Jacqueline 70 Peep Toe in Black) and a large butterfly ring (if you're a fan of the free spirited emblem try Moss Mills' Ava Ring in Light Gold). Fresh platinum extensions and a healthy bronze glow complete Christina's transformation from hot mama to blonde bombshell. What are your thoughts on her take on the classic LBD, is this tasteful or trashy? I think she's pumping this up with just a tad too much va-va-voom, but she looks amazing so I really can't discredit her too much. Christina has been known to reinvent her look periodically – do you think she's done a good job this time?
Christina Aguilera seen on Sep 04 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Christina Aguilera makes the most of the maxi skirt trend as she arrives at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA with hubby Jordan Bratman on September 4. The smokin' songstress stepped out of her brand new cherry red Ferrari sporting a laidback look, starting with a flowy maxi skirt and graphic tee with hot pink writing (maximize the trend by layering a top over your favorite maxi dress, like Woo's Ally Maxi Dress in Black with Bejeweled's In Love With Life Tank in White) and comfy flip-flops (Gwyneth Shoes' Briee Strap Sandal in Black are one of my fav summer picks). Christina topped off her look with a camel fedora and oversized sunnies, keeping a low profile despite the loud ride. What do you think of Christina's casual style, are you buying into the maxi trend as well? While gearing up for Burlesque press to come this fall, Christina is featured in the October issue of Cosmopolitan UK, where she shared her secrets for keeping things interesting with her husband of five years: "I leave little lipstick marks on the bathroom mirror for when he wakes up, and little notes written in lipstick on the mirror and in the shower. Little notes, little cards, little 'I love yous' here and there, just to keep things fun and alive." Awww, cute! Do you readers have any secrets to keeping the romance alive in your relationships?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jul 28 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Putting a friendly foot forward for the paps, Christina Aguilera waves for the cameras as she makes her way to a friend's casa in Beverly Hills on July 28. Dressed in what she would consider a casual look, Christina layered a fun graphic tee (I'm loving Scrapbook Original's Selene Tank in Blue) over an essential black cami (I can't live with Splendid's basics like the Layers Cami in Heather) with black jeggings (like Chasely's Denim Legging in Overdye Black), carrying an oversized black tote with all her motherly essentials inside (I'm in lust with CC Skye's new Love82 in Lamb Black). Christina dressed up the look with spiky Christian Louboutins, topping her 'fit with a black fedora and a perky pout to match the graphic on her tee. What do you think of Christina's style, does this work for her or is she getting too predictable? I think she's definitely overworked the black leggings for the past few years, but the fierce footwear breathes life back into this trend. Thoughts? Even if her new album hasn't been super successful, Christina has been enjoying the summer downtime, spotted out at Voyeur with Nicole Richie two weeks ago and making her way out once again last week to Here Lounge with none other than former Spice Girl Mel B at her side. This week's venture? Christina went car shopping with hubby Jordan Bratman and toddler Max at the Ferrari dealership in Calabasas. Wonder who will be the first to climb behind the wheel of their sweet new ride? I'm rooting for Max!
Christina Aguilera seen on Jul 08 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Looking especially perky after a lunchtime date, Christina Aguilera and hubby Jordan Bratman were spotted leaving Spago in Beverly Hills on July 8. Christina has been keeping a super busy schedule lately, putting out the video for her latest single "You Lost Me" while still making time for a little fun. She and Nicole Richie were spotted leaving Voyeur nightclub in West Hollywood last week – check out the hot mamas here! During the day Christina kept it casual in white washed skinny jeans (try Work Custom Jeans' edgy Moto Zip in Acid Rain), a super distressed white tee (love the mixed textures of Joe's Jeans oversized Tux Tee in Painter Charcoal) and fun yellow sandals (like Gwyneth Shoes' strappy Briee Strap Sandal in Lime) picking up the look. Carrying a casual black printed tote (it's a little dressier than Christina's choice, but I'm loving Tylie Malibu's Ikat Bag in Black), Christina wore her pink tinted tresses in messy curls and completed the look with her trademark rouge lipstick. What do you think of Christina's uber casual style, does it work for her? Despite releasing a few singles from her latest album Bionic this summer, including "Not Myself Tonight" and "You Lost Me," sales for Christina's comeback album have been anything but hot. Canceling her summer tour due to inadequate rehearsal time might have had something to do with it, but with edgy acts like Lady Gaga and Rihanna dominating the airwaves, Christina has been fighting to have her voice heard. I can't even say when the last time I heard one of her singles on the radio was! Music insiders are reporting that Christina's label RCA is in "rescue mode" to frantically raise sales for the album, but they're having trouble as it is seems evident the market has changed a lot since Christina's last album four years ago, Back to Basics. An insider reported: [Christina] wants to compete with her peers, but there is a disconnect because, over the years, she's been a mother and a wife, not a rocker." I guess you could say things have changed since Christina, Britney and Jessica Simpson dominated the pop charts! Do you think Mamaguilera can beat the competition?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jul 01 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Getting serious on set, Christina Aguilera arrives to film a guest role on Entourage in Los Angeles on July 1. Christina was spotted reviewing her lines as she waited her turn to film scenes for the season finale, in which she'll play one of Ari's clients who agrees to do the super agent a favor by performing at a party for him. Eminem also has a guest role in the same episode – can't wait to see how they interact on screen! I'm not sure if Christina added a pink tint to her hair for the part or if it's a new phase for her, but I can't say I'm in love with it! Other than the hair Christina dressed casually for the part, arriving in black skinny jeans (get the booty flattering fit with Hudson Jeans' Collin Signature Skinny in Holy Well) and a graphic tee featuring a topless denim model (love the oversized shape of Lauren Moshi's Lightning Boyfriend Tee in White) topped with a lightweight military inspired jacket (love Free People's Light Weight Blazer in Olive). Christina wore her fav spotted Louboutins (love the eye-popping shade of Samanta's KT Heel in Tan Pony) and a beaded rosary-like necklace (Brian Nagourney's Tang Dynasty Loops Necklace) to add a little sass to the look. What do you think of Christina's on set style, does it seem fitting for her to be playing herself in this? I'm really the most curious about her hair – I hope it's just a phase!
Christina Aguilera seen on Jun 15 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Bringing a little luck to the Lakers, Christina Aguilera strolls out onto the court to sing the National Anthem during game six of the NBA Finals in Los Angeles' Staples Center on June 15. Strutting her stuff in a sexy strapless LBD (just like Lotta Stensson's Shirred Mini Tube Dress in Black or Luc by Lucy's Cut Out Bella Dress in Black), Christina added some fierce Christian Louboutin spotted pumps (love the fun colors of Samanta's KT Heel in Tan Pony) and a few studded cuff bracelets (love Rocco e Dante's Joe Double Cuff in Dark Purple) to complete the look. I'm glad to see she went for such a tame ensemble for the occasion, but what's going on with the slicked back hair? It looks like she just got out of the pool! Christina also belted out the National Anthem at the final game last Thursday, sealing the deal that she's the good luck charm the Lakers needed all along as they won the championship against the Boston Celtics. Were any of you lucky enough to attend either game and hear her sing? If so you might be one of the few to hear Christina's voice at all this summer, after she canceled her Bionic tour claiming she doesn't have enough time to prepare this summer. Christina explained her decision not to move forward with the tour: "I'm such a perfectionist. I'm not doing something unless I give my all. I haven't had time to think about the tour, what with the film...I was going crazy trying to figure out what the set list was and it felt too rushed, too soon. There wasn't enough time to prepare the kind of show I like to put on—which is my very best." If you've ever seen her live you know her shows are worth the wait, but what a bummer! Were any of you planning on attending?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jun 07 2010 in New York, NY. Definitely "not herself tonight," Christina Aguilera heads to the official 2010 MTV Movie Awards after party at SoHo House in West Hollywood, CA on June 6. Christina embodied rocker chic from head to toe, twisting her hair into a faux-hawk and slicking the sides back to go with her attitude saturated 'fit. Christina started with a ripped tube dress (stick to the basics with Lotta Stensson's sexy Shirred Mini Tube Dress in Black), which she covered with a white tee emblazoned with bold lyrics: "And if you don't like it, f-k you," pulled from her latest single "Not Myself Tonight" (top your look with an edgy oversized tee like Splendid's zipper embellished Cocoon Tee in White). Christina amped up the attitude with a leather biker jacket (lighten up for summer in Qi New York's Billie Jean Bomber Jacket in Black) and sexy lace up Christian Louboutin ankle boots (work the vibe in Rock & Republic's Syler Pump in Black), added a kitschy lip shaped handbag, two layered necklaces (love Jules Smith's Kiss Kiss Petite in Silver) and a handful of rings to complete the ensemble. It's a lot to take in, but what are your thoughts – is she rocking this? The following Tuesday Christina's long anticipated album Bionic was released, complete with a whirlwind press tour in NYC. Mamaguilera performed a few of her new songs on "The Today Show" in New York and chatted with Matt Lauer about how her son inspired her new musical direction: “I was completely inspired by a lot of electronic music when my son was born. We both were listening to it a lot together. Having a child makes me think about the future and the next generation. And I got really inspired by electronica. He definitely inspires the playful side of me, that I didn’t really have prior to having him.” What are your thoughts on Christina's new material so far, are you listening to it on your iPods?
Christina Aguilera seen on May 07 2010 in New York, NY. Continuing to reinvent herself, Christina Aguilera dashes out for a bite to eat while taping "The Oprah Winfrey Show" at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on May 7. Helping to celebrate O Magazine's 10th anniversary, Christina performed her sexy new single "Not Myself Tonight" and took part in the show with Oprah's multitude of celebrity fans, including Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz and Suze Orman. Stepping out in tight acid washed skinny jeans (check out Denim of Virtue's Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Leg in Acid Blue) and a loud graphic tank (try layering T by Alexander Wang's easy oversized tanks like the Panelled Tank in White or 291 Venice's colorful graphic tops like the Art & Music Tank in Grapefruit), Christina dazzled in gorgeous peeptoe Christian Louboutins (get the sexy sparkled look with Rock & Republic's Romy Pump in Pewter). Adding a few attention grabbing accessories, including a rosary necklace a-la-Madonna (try Queen Baby by King Baby Studio's Rosary with 3D Cross & Crowned Heart) and a frisky spiked bracelet (love Castaway's Sundial Bracelet in Bronze), Christina fluffed up her short locks with pin up girl style curls and covered her face with a giant pair of sunnies. The hair might be slightly Gaga-esque, both just because they have similar physical characteristics doesn't mean we should write this one off. What do you think of Christina's rockin' vibe, would you wear it? Christina is currently garnering publicity for the release of her highly anticipated album Bionic next month, releasing another single "WOO HOO" this week. She chatted with Oprah about her decision to take some time off after giving birth to Max: "I like to take time between records and just live life for a moment, just gather my thoughts, my inspiration, and figure out what the next record is going to be. I just take those moments to live life so I can be even more inspired as an artist." Her next album is said to take inspiration from A Clockwork Orange, which you can definitely see from her first music video and the album's cover art. How excited are you to see what Ms. Aguilera has in store for us?
Christina Aguilera seen on May 07 2010 in New York, NY. Making time for her man, Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman enjoy a night out away from their son Max in NYC on May 7. Christina spent her day running around town taking care of business and filming a special episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," where she performed her new smash single "Not Myself Tonight." Still continuing to flaunt her newly revamped, provocative look, Christina kept her pin curls intact for her night out, changing out of her day look into a vibrant graphic tank with a lacy bra peeking out (Bejeweled's Rock and Roll Denim Style Tank in White evokes a great vintage vibe) and ripped leggings over fishnets (try Habitual's Ava Skinny in Hurricane over your fav pair of racy tights), staying warm in a velvet jacket (try wearing Ingwa Melero's Elena Jacket in Navy unlaced). Mamaguilera showed off her love for Louboutins with shiny black patent heels (love the sexy strap detail of Rock & Republic's Alayna Chain Pump in Pewter) and layered a fringed metal necklace over the same rosary she wore earlier in the afternoon, carrying a rock n' roll inspired black clutch to complete the look (love the stud detail on Tylie Malibu's Runaway Clutch in Black). Lastly, bright crimson lips and fluffy blonde curls dramatize Christina's daring ensemble. What do you think of this look, has she taken the transformation a little too far? Christina isn't one to be ashamed of her sexuality, and she chatted with People recently about how important it is for her to have her son be comfortable with nudity: “We’re big art collectors so there’s lots of female nudes around the house… It’s something to be respected and seen as a thing of beauty. I think it’s only weird whenever you shame it and raise your child to look at it in a weird light.” I have to say I agree! What is your stance on raising kids to be comfortable with their bodies?
Christina Aguilera seen on May 01 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Enjoying a Saturday afternoon out with the fam, Christina Aguilera shops around in Hollywood on May 1 with her little man on her hip and husband not far behind. Mamaguilera loves her leggings, but this time she packed a little punch with biker inspired knee patches setting her apart (if you like the moto inspired patch detail, try Carter's Bullet Proof Skinny in Black). Next Christina layered an acid washed graphic tee (love the graphics on Monrow's Gingko Crew Short Sleeve in Black) with a cropped black hoodie (like Rails' Cooper Hoodie in Black), shuffling around in patent black ballet flats (similar to Coye Nokes' Amelia Ballet Flat in Black Embossed Python). Christina pulled her bleached blonde tresses back and covered up with big black sunnies, carrying the round theme to her oversized black cocktail ring (celebs including Paris Hilton love CC Skye's Blossom Ring in Black). What do you think of Christina's hard-meets-mod style, would you rock it or does it need a few tweaks? Christina happily headed out the day after the release of her heavily anticipated new single, "Not Myself Tonight," off her fourth studio album Bionic, hitting shelves this June. The racy new video is already drawing comparisons to Lady Gaga, which isn't a surprise – afterall, they're both blondes who like to push any and all buttons! Rap artist Akon was recently asked in an interview with Vibe to compare the two divas, which he responded at length: “Aw man, that’s not even any competition… You are actually giving Christina too much credit. She always had her cool little look and way about how she went about things. But soon as Gaga came out everything switched up. Christina stepped out of her own shell to become something different. And the crazy thing is Christina is really talented. She has unlimited range when it comes to singing. Her voice is out of here. I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success Gaga has had not realizing that she was already successful before Gaga came out.” I couldn't agree more! He continued, “Christina shouldn’t have anything to prove or anyone to compete with. I miss the old Christina Aguilera. I like the old one better than the new one. Honestly, Gaga and Christina could probably get together and do something that’s amazing. But that’s impossible if they are both trying to do the same exact thing musically.” Very well spoken! Do you agree with his thoughts?
Christina Aguilera seen on Apr 01 2010 in North Hollywood, CA. Always on the go, Christina Aguilera exits the Milennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood after a three hour long rehearsal on April 1. Not sure if she's still learning moves for her role as a racy dancer in Burlesque or if she's got a special performance coming up, but from her disheveled hair it looks like she was giving it her all! Christina changed out of her dance clothes into a loose striped top (love the fit of Monrow's Stripe Boatneck in Shadow) with uber short shorts over standard black leggings (I've never been a fan of exposed pockets, but I love the fun print peeking out of 7 For All Mankind's BF Shorty in Liberty, paired with David Lerner's Basic Legging in Black). Christina added a little edge with a fierce Chanel studded tote, leather moto jacket (check out the unique front details on Mike & Chris' Wesley Motorcycle Jacket in Black) with a pop of red lipstick and peeptoe heels to match. It's actually more than a pop – I feel like her lips are screaming at me! Is it just me or does her pout look especially plump? Other than the heavy makeup I kind of like the rest of the look – thoughts? Christina has often spoken of her not-so-perfect childhood over the years, but I never would've guessed her painful past would inspire her to take on her role in Burlesque. She chatted with OK! magazine on how she relates to her character: “The girl I play, Ali, has a rough past – her mother dies when she’s very young and she’s been in foster homes. I could relate to that pain, growing up in an abusive household. That gave me great motivation to provoke my tears for those scenes where I had to really pour it on. I felt it deeply, to go through a lot of those things that brought up a lot of painful memories.” On the bright side, it sounds like great motivation for a stunning big screen debut – are you excited to see Christina switch gears from the sound studio to the silver screen?
Christina Aguilera seen on Mar 23 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking especially fierce, Christina Aguilera steps out with a spunky new hairstyle in LA on March 23. Christina and fellow hot mama Nicole Richie were both spotted hitting up West Hollywood hotspot Trousdale for a little Tuesday night fun, celebrating Christina's big announcement that the first single off her new album Bionic will be released next week. For Mamaguilera fans this is super exciting news – it's been almost 4 years since we've heard anything new from the pop sensation! Well, with the except of 2 singles last year, which personally weren't exactly my faves. Christina is known for her always evolving style, and from this look I have to ask: is 80's punk her new inspiration? For her feisty look, it appears Christina slicked her hair back and added some sort of curly Mohawk attachment. Painted blue lids, bright red lips and thick eyeliner set the stage for her rocker look, which started with a striped crop top (like Splendid's Watercolor Stripe Boatneck Tee in Platinum) over a white tank and frayed black shorts (check out Blank NYC's Raw Meat Cutoff in Raw Meat). Stunning spiked Loubs and spiky hoop earrings complement the cropped black leather jacket (love Joe's Jeans' Moto Jacket in Black), long red accented necklace (add some drama with Amy Digregorio's Cherry Valley Necklace in 14K Gold Filled) and edgy black tote (Linea Pelle's Dylan Satchel in Black makes a great companion piece) Ms. Aguilera carried with her. Wow, I'm still taking in this super dramatic look – what are your thoughts on Christina's get-up? It's so overdone it's almost over the top, but later in the week Christina was spotted back in her usual flats and skinny jeans out shopping with her hubby Jordan Bratman in Beverly Hills. They must be paying the babysitter overtime this week, as Christina and her man took in the Jay-Z concert at Staples on Friday as well. They weren't the only celebrity parents in the house – Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz also came out, as did Jessica Alba and Cash Warren. Sounds like there was more to see than the artists on stage! Did any of you catch Jay-Z's show?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jan 22 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking a little glum on a rainy evening in LA, Christina Aguilera was spotted heading out to dinner with husband Jordan Bratman on January 22. Heading to their favorite eatery, Osteria Mozza, Christina bundled up in a striped peacoat (get the wintery look with Walter's outerwear options like Wool Button Blazer in Black/White or the Speckled Tweed Jacket in Brown Multi) with a cozy black scarf (love Elizabeth Gillett's Pocket Vest Scarf in Black). As usual, Christina wore a tunic top under her coat with uber comfy leggings (love Ella Moss' Ponte Leggings in Black) with sassy above the knee boots adding an edgy vibe (Farylrobin's Farylrobin's Frankfurt in Black are a great casual option). Christina is still rocking the super straight platinum bob, and of course crimson lips that have been a part of her everyday look for a few years now. What do you think of her style here, do you dress similarly on rainy days? Earlier in the evening Christina had participated in the "Hope for Haiti" global fundraiser, where she performed a new single "Lift Me Up." In case you missed the live show, the digital exclusive CD is for sale on iTunes right now. To date the massive celeb collaboration filled event has raised over $61 million to help those affected by the devastating earthquake that struck two weeks ago. So great to see celebs like Christina working together to fund an incredible cause! Have any of you lent a helping hand?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jan 17 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Looking ravishing on the red carpet, Christina Aguilera sparkles at the 2010 Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 17 in Beverly Hills, CA. Now that she's crossing over into acting I expect we'll see a lot of her at events like this, and it was very refreshing to see her pull off such a stunning gown. Christina usually adds a vampy twist to her formal looks, but on Sunday she sparkled in a strapless Versace gown with a metal entwined bodice, interested hip details and a beautiful chiffon train (nab the elegant vibe with Jenny Han's Tiered Tube Dress in Sparkle, Sue Wong's Layered Short Dress with Embroidered Flowers in Cream or Alice + Olivia's Moonstone Dress in Grey). The peachy nude shade is gorgeous against her skintone, and the gown is nicely complemented by barely there make-up (well, compared to the goop she usually covers her eyes in) and a sleek, newly shorn bob. I'm just glad the uber short bangs have finally grown out, or at least been covered up with extensions. The side parted, cropped cut gives her a much more mature look, don't you think? At the GGs, Christina posed on the red carpet with Burlesque castmate Cher, whom she also presented the Best Original Song award on stage with. The drop-dead gorgeous duo poked a little fun at their host while "shamelessly" promoting their new flick, which they've been filming tirelessly in LA over the past few weeks. I knew Christina was very short, but didn't realize how tall Cher is until I saw them standing next to each other at the event – especially with the colors of their gowns it's almost like a fashionable Wicked Witch of the West meets Glinda the Good Witch! What do you think of Christina's sophisticated new look – are you as happy as I am to see the bleached bangs and hot pink lipstick retired for a night?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 31 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. Stepping out in style on New Year's Eve, hot mamas Christina Aguilera and Nicole Richie strut their stuff on the red carpet at Tao inside the Venetian in Las Vegas on December 31. As they say, if you've got it, better flaunt it, and as usual Christina pulled out all the stops in a sexy beaded Moschino LBD (try Sue Wong's Jet Beaded Bubble Dress in Black/Nude) with multi-toned Christian Louboutins. Love the sparkly silver toe – perf touch for the holiday! Mamaguilera accessorized with a dramatic statement necklace (try one of Amrita Singh's colorful collar necklaces, like the Teteo Necklace in Black) and a sparkly dome ring by Hollywood jeweler Stephen Webster (can't go wrong with Michele Michel's Adjustable Hammered Dome Ring in Silver). I'm not usually a fan of her make-up – too heavy for my taste – but I'm loving the v-shaped eyeliner and glossy red lips with the super straight, super platinum cropped locks. Are you feeling the blunt 'do? In contrast to Christina's saucy look, Nicole went for a mod holiday look, pairing a shimmering long sleeve gold mini from her own Winter Kate collection (try Love Couture's flirty Striped Tank in Gold) with opaque black tights and black pumps (love the unique shape of Samanta's Viv Pump Wide in Black Patent). There's a lot going on with the color and loose volume of the dress, so I'm glad Ms. Richie kept her accessories simple. Her new chestnut tresses and mod bangs are a perfect complement to the frock, don't you think? Even though Christina's look is more cliché, I'm loving both sexy NYE looks here – which one is your fav?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 29 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Taking advantage of post-holiday sales, Christina Aguilera left Max with a babysitter and hit the shops in LA on December 29. Hitting up Hollywood staples Fred Segal and Neiman Marcus, Mamaguilera was all business in a plaid blazer (love the sophisticated print on Walter's Wool Button Blazer in Black/White), printed tank (like Yvette Mandell's Hidden Truth Tank in White) and charcoal leggings (Ella Moss' Ponte Leggings in Black are a great comfy pick). Black combat boots (Farylrobin's Ursula Zip-Up Motorcycle Boot in Black is a versatile option), a chain studded bag (add a little edge with Rough Roses' Francesca Tote in Double Handle in Black), chunky ring (Megan Greene's Ninotchka in Fog will add a unique element to any 'fit) and swinging pendant necklace complete her edgy meets cool ensemble perfect for checking out a few new digs. What do you think of her 'fit? As usual Christina rocked dramatic crimson lips with a super straight blonde bob and oversized sunnies, taking some much needed personal time after spending the holidays with her hubby Jordan Bratman and toddler Max. While Christina makes it very clear how dedicated she is to mommyhood, the soulful songstress announced she will be hosting and performing at the 2010 NYE party at Tao nightclub in Las Vegas. Can't wait to see what Mamaguilera brings to the table!
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 24 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Spotted wearing her favorite boots for the past 2 weeks, Christina Aguilera was out and about doing a little holiday shopping at Maxfield's with her little boy Max on December 13, picking up a few doggie treats for their family pooch at Petco in Beverly Hills on December 24. Christina has apparently developed an obsession with these snowboots (if you want a cute and edgy ankle boot, I say go for something like Gwyneth Shoes' Alba Ankle Boot in Black which has a comfortable low heel), wearing them around LA despite the fact that it's been in the 70's, with what looks like the same hat and leggings. I'm not a fan – is there some sort of trend I'm missing here? The first time she wore them on the left, wearing a plaid woven shirt (like Trovata's Woven Shirt in Corsica) over gray skinny leggings (7 For All Mankind's Roxanne Sunray Pocket in Portland have been one of my staples this year) topped with a charcoal tweed hat shielding her face from the paps. On Christmas eve, Christina went for a more casual look, tucking her velour sweatpants into the boots (try Bejewed's luxurious Ryth Invasion Velour Pant in Blue with a gray hoodie and a plaid scarf (opt for Royal Plush's Baby Thermal Hoodie in Gray with A Graves' Sparrow Scarf in Purple). Once again, pairing the red and gray boots with red plaid and gray bottoms. Seeing a pattern here? I don't know if it's necessarily a terrible one, I'm just pointing it out. What do you CoutureCandy readers think of Mamaguilera's style lately?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 18 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Never missing a chance to shine, Christina Aguilera makes a showstopping entrance at Cecconi's in Hollywood on December 19. Having a romantic night out with her hubby Jordan Bratman, Christina celebrated her 29th birthday in style at the posh Italian eatery. Christina stopped traffic getting out of her ride in a flirty double breasted coat (Nanette Lepore's cleavage boosting Tie Jacket in Black is a great pick) and thigh high Christian Louboutin laced front boots (if you're one of the majority who can't afford to drop $1000 on shoes right now, opt for Farylrobin's edgy Harlow Knee High Boot in Grey with cool suede/leather contrast at a third of the price). Arriving with a sleek, straight 'do, Mamaguilera went for bold accessories with her British flag encrusted clutch (add a bold accent to any 'fit with one of Moyna Handbag's exquisite beaded creations like the Red Velvet Snap Clutch in Red). I haven't really been a fan of Christina's style in a long time – hair or clothing – but there's something about this look that comes off more polished than her usual attire. What do you readers think, is Christina's transition to acting is helping her gain style points? Pussycat Dolls creator Robin Antin thinks so, after casting Mamaguilera to appear in her show in 2003, she passed the word on to her brother, director Steve Antin, to keep Christina in mind for a future role, hence her casting in Burlesque. She tells MTV, "[Christina's] doing really well. She’s very talented, and it’s great when you have a director like my brother, Steve… He truly is one of the best directors. That’s what a good director is: It’s to get your actress, whether they’ve had experience or not, to be great.” Interesting insight! Are you looking forward to seeing Christina's silver screen debut?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 06 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Showing off her penchant for funky style, Christina Aguilera was spotted on two different occasions sporting her new red and charcoal lace up boots. Is it just me or do these things look like snow shoes? Not exactly what you see every day in LA! On the left, Christina was spotted taking her little boy Max to Mr. Greentrees in Los Angeles on December 6, the same lot Jessica Alba and Cash Warren picked their tree out at the day before. For their little adventure, Christina paired her boots with black leggings (try The Batallion's Motorcycle Legging in Black or Slate to get either look), a gray mini and red striped top (like Splendid's Rugby Striped Henley in Lipstick topped with an asymmetrical zipped motorcycle jacket (like Genetic Denim's The Fonda Motorcycle Jacket in Black Mirror) and a long silver pendant necklace (love the unique shape of Circadian Studios' Silver and Oxidized Multi Circles Necklace in Silver/Oxidized). A week earlier, Mamaguilera headed out to dinner at Houston's restaurant in Santa Monica with her hubby and little man in tow, working the same boots with a similar red striped sweater (this time try something with a fuller shape like Ella Moss's Skye Widesleeve Top in Amour) over a white tunic, charcoal leggings and a messenger bag slung across her body (indulge in Antoinette Lee's Stella Tote in Dove Grey). What do you think of both looks? I think the tweed hat is adorable on the left but I'm not feeling the sunglasses on the right – Christina may have come before Gaga but those glasses are way too similar to her trademark style, if you could even say Gaga has one. It's Mamaguilera's birthday this week, but don't expect her to be taking any time off to celebrate. Besides tending to her toddler Max, Christina has been busy on the set of Burlesque, hard at work shaping her big screen debut. Wonder if she'll have time to throw an elaborate themed b-day bash like last year? Guess we'll have to wait and see!
Christina Aguilera seen on Nov 09 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Christina Aguilera shows off her new bob on a date with her husband Jordan Bratman on November 9 in LA. The couple dined at Osteria Mozza, one of their favorite spots, but it looks like Christina's not in the best of moods. Hope it wasn't the food! I'm loving her side zip leather jacket (like Walter's Waxed Leather Jacket in Black) with the oversized clutch (try Zambos and Siega's Peggy Clutch in Black), but there are much more interesting pants options than tired leggings (Denim of Virtue's Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Leg in Black Damsel would go better with the edgy vibe). What do you think of her blue tipped Loubs? I think without them this 'fit would be a borderline snooze, but the hair and crimson lips add a dramatic element. It seems like Christina wears bright red or fuchsia lipstick 99% of the time, which can get a little tired for some of you, but she recently gave a cute explanation on her bold choices: “I love having red lips. There’s just something fun and vibrant about it. I love that extra little ‘pop’ to any look no matter how simple or strong the rest of the face is. But I have been using this kiss-proof red lipstick recently so I can kiss Max without getting kiss marks all over him.” Love it!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 17 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Taking her growing little boy out for some new duds, Christina Aguilera and hubby Jordan Bratman headed to Barney's in Beverly Hills on October 17 for a little family retail therapy. I don't think Christina's style has been anything to talk about lately, but this is particularly drab – she's drowning in an oversized sky blue tee (get the loose look with Zoa's Unbalanced Tunic in Grey or brighten up in a similar blue shade like Splendid's 3/4 Sleeve V Neck Top in Pool) with ash skinny jeans (7 For All Mankind's Roxanne Sunray Pocket in Portland are super comfy) and black ballet flats (make this style stand out with fun flats like Elaine Turner's Liz in Graphic Haircalf in Black Graphic). Yawn. It's pretty cute that she and Max are sporting matching blue hues, but the black fedora and silver pendant necklace (Citrine by the Stone's Free Dome Pendant in Gold has a more elegant vibe) don't add a lot of oomph to this 'fit. What do you readers think? Also probably not a smart idea to stick out your bubblegum like that while carrying a squirming toddler – I'm sure we've all had horrific gum-in-hair experiences and this one looks like it's seconds away! While Christina often talks about how much she loves mommyhood, she also admits she has staff on hand to look after Max and take care of her house, not to mention dinner. She recently told the press: “I don’t have time to cook. My mom is a yummy cook and I love the idea of my son craving home cooked food… When he gets older I will make time. I want to learn how to cook really yummy things.” We'll see if she actually follows through – maybe we'll get some leftovers!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 11 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Having some family fun at Mr. Bone's Pumpkin Patch, Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman took baby Max to pick out his very own Halloween pumpkin in LA on October 11. Getting in the autumn spirit, Mamaguilera wore a brown and blue plaid shirt (like Zoa's Double Faced Cotton Button Front Shirt in Navy) over a graphic tank (similar to Butterfly Dropout's Fulfilling Heart Crochet Tank in White) with ripped up grey jeans (like AG Jeans' Premiere 8 Year in Grey) and classic black Doc boots (streamline the look with Farylrobin's Ursula Zip Up Motorcycle Boot in Black). I'm not sure about the combat footwear, but I like the casual vibe and the orange sunnies are a fun October accent, don't you think? Pretty cute that Max is wearing a matching plaid top too. It's refreshing to see celebs doing normal things with their kids like this, dressed in normal clothes outside of showbiz. Trendmill put it best: "It not only humanizes them but (when they look good doing it at least) it serves as a gentle reminder to the rest of us that it doesn’t always take a whole lot of effort to look great, and it really does ring true that less is more at times." For someone like Christina who tends to go heavy on the goopy eyelashes and lacquered lips, it truly is humanizing to see her looking normal and having fun. Do you agree with the blogger than less is more in this case?
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 02 2009 in Venice, CA. Keeping a low profile in Venice, CA on October 2, Christina Aguilera struts her stuff while out with her husband on Abbot Kinney last Friday night. She must have heard the criticism about her lackluster style as of late, revamping her look with a cheeky blue bra under a sheer black top (like Generra's Sheer Button Blouse in Black). Do you think the bra works with the top? I feel like the full coverage style takes away from the sexiness of the look, but maybe it'd be too racy with a more enticing cut. Christina paired the bold top with faded, distressed skinnies (try 7 for All Mankind's Roxanne in Super Vintage Nakita), studded black boots (add edge to any 'fit with Farylrobin's Valencia Heeled Ankle Boot in Grey) and a glossy black tote (CC Skye's Janey Fringe Hobo Bag in Black with Gold Fringe). Top it off with a black banded fedora and red lipstick and you have classic Christina. Do you think this ensemble works for her? For those of you enjoying the celebrity guest judges on Project Runway this season, you're in for a treat – Mamaguilera is lined up to judge this week's challenge, standing proudly with Heidi Klum on the runway in photos released earlier this week. Loving the uber straight blonde tresses! For those of you PR fans, how are you feeling about this season so far on Lifetime? I don't know about you but I'm getting sick of the ever rotating judges and their irrelevant comments or even qualifications to judge the show in the first place. For example, this week the president of Jimmy Choo was there – as The Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy blog put it sarcastically, "…which would be great if this was a shoe challenge." Can't agree more – Michael and Nina, can you please stop playing musical judges every episode? I was also really shocked that only Logan got called out for his hideous pantsuit, but there were two walking down the runway – how did Nicolas escape Heidi's wrath, especially after the evil looks she was dishing him last week? Readers, weigh in – what would you like to see happen for the rest of the season?
Christina Aguilera seen on Sep 24 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Christina Aguilera came out to show her support for girl power at Variety's 1st Annual Power of Women Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sept 24. Arriving in a very demure ensemble, Mamaguilera showed off her curves in a lacy LBD with a wide waist panel (check out Graham and Spencer's Sleeveless V Neck Techno Dress in Black or C&C California's Nicolette Dress in Black with Jack Rabbit's Icon Belt in Black) and classy peep-toe Loubs. Christina accessorized with a few bangles (try Alex and Ani's Set of 7 Signature Expandable Wire Bangles in Silver) and some eclectic rings (opt for a unique shape like Michele Michel's Adjustable Rose Ring in Silver), keeping her hair and makeup very conservative compared to what we're used to seeing, with just a dash of red lipstick and nail polish. In contrast to Mamaguilera's show-stopping looks of yesterday, I'm a little surprised to see her playing it so safe here with a simple LBD – especially among so many fashionable ladies! Down to the crimson pout and matching soles of her peep-toe Loubs, this look is too predictable, but it's suitable for the event so I can't be too mean. What do you think of her super short bangs? Besides attending what Variety describes as "an intimate group of Hollywood’s most philanthropically impactful women," Christina has been busy crafting her new album, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have time for charitable pursuits. Mamaguilera will appear in a new World Hunger Relief campaign, lending her face to posters displayed in several fast food chains across the nation. The next time you dine at KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Long John Silver's or A&W you will have the opportunity to make a donation to this worthy campaign. I just wish charity didn't involve consuming greasy fast food in the process!
Christina Aguilera seen on Aug 15 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Enjoying a night out on the town, Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman made time for a date at their fav restaurant Osteria Mozza in Los Angeles on August 15. Whatever the occasion, you can expect Christina to arrive in leggings, a loose tank with an edgy graphic, Loubs and hot pink lipstick, and as usual Mamaguilera did not disappoint. She put her 'fit together with booty hugging black leggings (spice things up with Rock & Republic's Melissa Leggings in Black) and a loose Lauren Moshi piano tank (browse CoutureCandy's selection of LM's limited edition tanks, like the hand drawn Peace Girl Swing Tank in White) with a cozy electric blue cardigan keeping her warm (try Splendid's 1x1 Long Cardigan in Sapphire). Christina's worn the white tunic version of the same Lauren Moshi tee in the past, and also rocked the same tank with a more casual 'fit last fall. Which look is your fav? Christina completed her date night look with a striped scarf (try A Graves' Eagle Houndstooth Italian Silk Scarf in Black & White - same contrast colors, better print) and a cute chain strap purse (check out Antoinette Lee's Mia Bag in Navy Shimmer or try Fuchsia if you dare!), adding color with her turquoise nails and flashy blue metallic Christian Louboutins. Not exactly what I'd wear out to dindin with my man, but when does Christina ever play by the rules? As the release of her long anticipated new CD looms closer, Mamaguilera is feeding us more info about what she has in store: “I can’t let too much out the bag too soon. I just can’t, ‘cause I really want you guys to be surprised and to experience firsthand what I’m talking about or what I’m not talking too much about… I think I’m most proud of this work than I’ve ever been, just because I worked with so many amazing and incredibly talented people. [Sia and I] did a lot of work on this record together, and she’s just a complete gem. She’s truly just such a talented force to be reckoned with. And I so enjoyed her company, and I think we really created some super crazy magic together." Are you readers excited to hear Christina's new sound?
Christina Aguilera seen on Aug 08 2009 in Los Feliz, CA. Splurging on a shopping spree for baby Max, Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman spent their Saturday afternoon at the La La Ling kid's clothing store in Los Feliz, CA on August 8. I have to say both are rocking some very fierce shades! Staying true to her casual rocker style, Mamaguilera wore Monrow's Marilyn Tee (show your love for fashion and music icons with tees from Bejeweled like the Love the Beatles Tee in White) with a pair of booty hugging distressed skinnies (try 7 For All Mankind's classic fitting Roxanne in Super Vintage Nakita) and simple black thongs, accessorizing with layered long necklaces (like Circadian Studio's versatile Silver Small Circles Long Wrap Necklace in Silver) and a NY baseball cap. I absolutely love her black zippered messenger bag (check out Carla Mancini's Double Handle Bag in Black) but I think Max's checkered sunnies really do it for me. What do you think of Christina's casual style? In terms of her career, Mamaguilera has been working on her futuristic album for over a year now, but she recently revealed to AP how she juggles work and fam time: “We moved into our new house about a year ago, but since I started working on the record, I have a studio in the backyard… It just has been so perfect for me to just wake up in the morning, put on my flip flops and sweatpants, and just go back in the studio and pretty much get into my creative cave and zone out that way... So the paparazzi have probably been upset with me. I know they told my husband, they’re like, ‘Is she ever going to leave the house?’” I guess after her Sat outing, that answer is yes! Are you curious about what kind of sound Christina has been working on?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jul 15 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Taking her voice to the streets, Christina Aguilera was spotted shooting a PSA for World Hunger Relief at Hollywood and Highland in Los Angeles on June 15. She's been involved in public service campaigns before, so it's no surprise to see her lending her voice for a great cause. Going for the all white look in a v-neck burnout tee (Signorelli's New Omni Peace Burnout V Neck in White has a similar cut and benefits a great cause), bleached destroyed skinny jeans (white out in Proportion of Blu's Lincoln Skinny Jean in Powder) and a shiny blue ring (go for something different with Erica Anenberg's Crown Cigar Ring in 14k Plated Solid Brass). Love her bold blue nail polish, but let's hope those black flip-flops aren't going to make it into the video! Making a statement as the new spokeswoman, Christina said: "It's unacceptable a child dies every six seconds somewhere around the world from hunger. By lending my voice for World Hunger Relief, I hope to raise awareness about the issue and move people from hunger to hope." Mamaguilera's new cause is backed by none other than fast-food mogul Yum! Brands, owners of Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC. Seems a little ironic for them to be sponsoring a hunger relief program of this magnitude – as the LA Times blog put it, "It's kind of like Camel cigarettes sponsoring a Healthy Lung festival." Nevertheless, if you're interested in getting involved in the cause – and it is a very, very worthy one – you can go to fromhungertohope.com and donate to the World Food Programme. It's pretty amazing that just $1 a day can provide 4 well balanced meals to a child in need!
Christina Aguilera seen on Jun 18 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Still rockin' the super short bleached bangs, Christina Aguilera was spotted with Max on her hip and paint on her arm after a pottery session at Color Me Mine in Los Angeles on June 18. Witnesses said Christina was helping Max made a Father's Day gift for daddy Jordan Bratman – how cute! Not getting tired of the legging look, Mamaguilera dressed ubercomfy in a purple plaid shirt (try Splendid's Check Shirt Dress in Navy/White), pink creamsicle tee and of course standard black leggings (check out 7 For All Mankind's Gwenevere Knit Skinny in Black if you're in the mood for a change). Adding white oversized Wayfarers and a hot pink bag (similar to Antoinette Lee's Mia Bag in Pearl Fuchsia), Christina stayed true to her traditional pink pout and bright red nail polish. The bag is adorable, but with the bright blonde hair and pink flip-flops do you think she looks too much like a suburban Barbie? Then again, it is Barbie's 50th birthday this year so there's nothing wrong with a little pink! Christina has been keeping busy lately in the studio, getting ready to release her new "futuristic" album later this year. The album features plenty of girl-power collaborations with Le Tigre, Australian star Sia, Goldfrapp and Ladytron. It's supposed to echo her two singles off the greatest hits album last year, "Keeps Gettin' Better" and "Dynamite." Are any of you fans of the new electronic sound, or do you like the jazzy, pin curls and rouge lipped "Back to Basics" Christina better?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jun 02 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Oozing an aura of hair spray and caked makeup while leaving the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills on June 2, Christina Aguilera looked like she was up to something mysterious with a bottle of her perfume Xpose in one hand and her assistants following her out of the hotel with her luggage. Hmmm, wonder where she’s off to in that unflattering bustier-black pant combo? If you like the corset style of Christina’s top, try wearing sexy dress version like Black Halo’s Trapunto Sheath Dress in Black or Shumaq’s Marrisa Dress in Black, or if you’re a fan of black pants you can’t go wrong with Dylan George’s Double Knit Skinny Pants in Black. Christina wore a glitzy diamond ring on her left hand – either her wedding ring or something from close friend, jewelry designer Stephen Webster? Add something extra to your ‘fit with an elegant cocktail ring like Femme Metale’s Noble Fleur with Snow Quartz Ring in Silver without the designer price tag. As to her short hotel stay, Mamaguilera was assumed to be leaving a photo or film shoot for her new fragrance, looking a little fatigued while heading back to her car after only a few hours. Maybe she’s still recovering from her weekend in Las Vegas, where Mamaguilera hosted a party for Stephen Webster’s 2009 collection launch at TAO nightclub at the Venetian on May 29. At the party Christina talked to the press about her new recordings: “My last album had a vintage, retro, glam appeal. And this next album which I am almost finished and am about to release has a very modern sense about it… Futuristic in terms of looking into the future and giving it a new twist and a new sensibility.” Try to wrap your mind around that one!
Christina Aguilera seen on Apr 28 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Busting out the hairspray and rollers, Christina Aguilera had a much needed night out with Heidi Klum at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood on April 28. Mamaguilera usually lays low, but when she comes out she goes big - as you can see here with her crazy voluminous curls! What do you think of the super blonde look - especially the super short bangs? As Heidi's pal Tim Gunn would say, it's a lot of look. Christina came out to support Ms. Klum at the LG Rumorous Night event, dressing for the occasion in an edgy Libertine blazer with a rhinestone skull emblazoned on the back (try Signorelli's Logo Blazer in Black) topped with a skinny checkered scarf over a burnout white tee (Signorelli's New Omni Peace Burnout V-Neck in White Burnout is a great pick that gives 25% back to charity). Mamaguilera rocked skinny cuffed Siwy jeans (try rolling your fav pair of distressed jeans or check out Serfontaine's Trinity Cuff Capri Jean in Vintage) with strappy cabernet Loubs, completing her look with an abundance of silver rings (try combining versatile options like Femme Metale's Rectangle Ring in Silver and Erica Anenberg's Pewter Double Finger Ring in Silver). I must say I love the electric blue nail polish - adds a nice pop of color to the 'fit, don't you think? While I'm normally a fan of Christina's over the top make-up and hair (love the old-fashioned rouge lips), I think she needs some serious help here. Mama looks like she's a little faded - what's wrong with her eyes? It looks like they're so weighed down with mascara she's having trouble opening them, and the dark, over arched penciled in brows and cakey bronze foundation don't do anything to help the situation. Look at the difference in shades of her face vs. hands and feet - yikes! What do you think of Christina's ensemble - fierce or fail?
Christina Aguilera seen on Mar 06 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Christina Aguilera has been laying low focusing on her new album for the past few months, but she still managed to make time for a date night with hubby Jordan Bratman on March 6. Hitting up their favorite restaurant, Osteria Mozza in West Hollywood, the couple emerged looking pretty peeved with the pap presence. Or maybe just with each other’s presence? A couple of days earlier, Mamaguilera ended a lunch at Figaro Café in Los Feliz prematurely, storming off with baby Max on her hip with Jordan trailing after her yelling “Wait!” as she flip-flopped her way outta there. Is there trouble in paradise or did one too many camera flashes set Christina off? At least it looks like they’re trying to work things out over a nice dinner apart from their little one. For her dindin ‘fit, Mamaguilera started with curve hugging grey skinnies (try Hudson’s Carly Skinny Jean in Wharf) with black peep-toe heels and a loose graphic tee (like Signorelli’s Screened Logo Bubble Tunic in Multi). Bundling up in a blue leather jacket (check out the similar style of Amberlynn’s Zipper Bomber Jacket in Black) and a fringed blue scarf (like A Graves’ Baroque Floral Scarf in Blue), Christina topped off her look with a fedona and a slate blue bag (check out Carla Mancini’s Whipstitch Double Handle Tote in Teal). Overall it seems like none of the layered items she's wearing go together but somehow, I like the way it all works. Maybe it’s the blue theme? What do you think of Mamaguilera’s look? It seems like she’s toned down the fake-tan and tranny make-up quite a bit, but I’m still not loving the pink lipstick. It looks different in the light and I don’t think either shade is flattering – can any of you pull off the muted Barbie pink shade?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jan 04 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Enjoying the plaid craze, Christina Aguilera took a well deserved break from motherhood shared a romantic Sunday date night at Osteria Mozza with her hubby Jordan Bratman in Los Angeles, CA on January 4. Have any of you been partaking in the plaid trend like Christina? I’m not sure if it’s a look I love, but you can’t beat the comfort of flannel! Wearing a long sleeved white tee (Rails’ Kenna Long Sleeve T in White is one of my faves) under her button down plaid tunic (try LaROK’s dressier Zooey Top in Multi for your own date night), Mamaguilera stuck to the basics with her black leggings (Tag Jeans’ Stretch Skinny Pant in Black is a super comfy alternative that won’t fall down after a night’s wear!) and wintry green beanie. I’m loving the black wedge boots, but I can’t quite wrap my mind around the free flowing strips on the sides – are they bows? Flaps? Do any of you have the answer? Toting a big black bag and accenting her ‘fit with flashy gold earrings (try Erica Anenberg’s adorable Baby Heart Hoop Earrings in Gold), Christina completed her look with crimson lips and matching nails. I used to love Christina’s red lipstick with her vintage ringlet curls, but I’m not so sure I like it with the mod bangs and the edgier styles she’s been sporting lately. Do you think it works for her - or anyone that has been copying the look lately? As Mamaguilera continues to work on her latest compilation due sometime at the end of this year, she announced her next project this week. Jumping on the fashion bandwagon, Christina will be the latest celeb to unveil her own collection for the trendy London based retailer, TopShop. Kate Moss already has a collection in the shop, and the line has been so successful that owner Philip Green asked Mamaguilera to be the next guest designer for the chain. Her collection hasn’t even been started yet, and projected earnings are already in the $1 million range! I’m not sure if I’d want to wear something with Christina’s signature flamboyant style, but I do love the constant evolution of fashions at TopShop and I’m sure Mamaguilera’s designs will fit right in. What do you think – will Christina be the next big celeb designer?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 21 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Looking a little pouty while getting some serious shopping done a few days before Christmas, Christina Aguilera was spotted taking to the streets in Beverly Hills on December 21 with her hubby Jordan Bratman in tow. The duo stopped for a few Starbucks holiday bevs before hitting Barney’s and heading home with a handful of shopping bags – carried by Mamaguilera’s doting husband, of course. Dressed in a very wintry (bordering on lumberjack) ‘fit, Christina layered up with a plaid button down tunic (tone it down with Zoa’s Long Cotton Shirt with Pleating in Black), a comfy puffed up vest (try Rails’ Dilyn Vest in Black), and her second skin leggings that she never seems to be without (to add some color to the ‘fit above, try Desert Blue’s Phoenix Skinny Jean in Ruby). Not straying from the rocker look, Mamaguilera paired her black nail polish with black flat motorcycle boots, a very round pair of red oversized sunnies, and a strappy black leather tote over her arm (check out Rough Roses’ Whitney Tote in Black). I know the plaid look is hot right now, but how do you feel about Mamaguilera’s rendition of it? I don’t know about you, but those ever shrinking bangs stand out to me more than the vivid red print and the neon yellow trim of her tunic. Seriously, they are looking so painfully short and brittle, do any of you think this is even remotely a good look for her? Maybe her feeble attempts to control her bangs are just an unfortunate side effect of Christina’s self-professed controlling personality. Mamaguilera recently spoke to The Observer Magazine about her past and present: “I was raised in a very chaotic environment… Nothing was ever quite stable or secure for me. So that might definitely have something to do with liking things done in order, in control and my way. I’m a huge organization freak. Everything is labeled and specified and there’s a place for it.” Maybe that explains the scowl on her face while shopping – who moved her cheese?
Christina Aguilera seen on Dec 18 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Leave it to Christina Aguilera to continually take things to the next level, and that’s exactly how she celebrated her 28th birthday in Los Angeles on December 18. Going all out with a Clockwork Orange themed party at Osteria Mozza, Mamaguilera made her entrance at the celeb studded affair dressed head to toe in an Alex de Large costume, complete with a bowler hat and cane. Who says you can’t pretend your birthday is Halloween, anyway? I wouldn’t recommend taking this look to the streets, but you can make winter white wearable with icy skinny jeans (James Jeans’ Tom 5 Pocket Straight Leg in Aspen White is a popular favorite), an arctic white top (like Autumn Cashmere’s Puff Sleeve Top in Winter White), and fierce black boots (skip the hat, but try a cozy scarf like Qi’s Cashmere Ruffled Cocoon Shawl in Arctic White to satisfy the season). Enjoying the chance to let loose with some pals, Christina shared cocktails with friends including Nicole Richie, Joel and Benji Madden, and Paris Hilton, while DJ AM kept the music spinning throughout the evening. At the height of the night, hubby Jordan Bratman (also dressed in full costume) gave a heartwarming toast to his beloved, clinking his glass with his wife’s favorite nectar, a sticky sweet cotton candy mojito. The unnatural color freaks me out a little, but it looks like Mamaguilera more than enjoyed herself! Taking a little time to gush about her man recently, Christina dished on what it takes to make her marriage work: “I have the most wonderful partner in Jordan. We make it a priority to work on our marriage. You have to take it seriously and respect each other and be a team. We always have date nights as well - it helps to keep the marriage alive after you have kids. My husband and I love to play board games together!” It may be so, I have a feeling there were more than board games being played in the presidential suite they shared together after the party!
Christina Aguilera seen on Nov 23 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Spelling it out loud and clear that she’s still got it, Christina Aguilera took to the stage at the 2008 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Nov 23 and brought the house down with her 7 minute medley featuring her most memorable hits. Giving an impressively energetic performance complete with costume changes, special lighting and sound effects and plenty of high energy choreography, Mamaguilera’s gig brought the house down and rivaled performances from divas including Rihanna, Beyoncé, and the Pussycat Dolls. It’s hard to believe she’s already been doing this for a decade, and even harder to believe that a 28 year old mom can shake it so well! In contrast to the vintage lacy Elie Saab dress she arrived in, Christina took the stage in thigh high leather boots (try the interesting vertical seams on Matiko’s Sienna Boot in Black) and racy fishnets, beginning her act in a tailored black coat (nab the mysterious look with Ingwa Melero’s Velvet Coat with Frog Closure in Black) shielding her ensemble as she transitioned through hits from “Beautiful” to “Genie in a Bottle” to “Keeps Gettin’ Better,” ending the show in a top hat and sexy corset mini (make it wearable with Lotta Stensson’s Shirred Mini Tube Dress in Black or Shumaq’s Marrisa Dress in Black) with a sheer lace vest finishing off her ‘fit. Did any of you have a chance to catch the show? With her new album still in the works, it’s clear Mamaguilera is working hard to revamp her image, and I have to say there’s a noticeable difference in her demeanor. Speaking of her latest recordings, Christina told the press: “With this new album, I wanted to go in a completely opposite direction-a very futuristic, robotic sound and computer-sounding vocals. I’m experimenting with my voice in ways I’ve never done before, almost like a technical, computer-generated sound, which is different for me because I’m the type of vocalist that just belts. I’m always inspired by new things because I get bored.” I’m intrigued to see just what Mamaguilera has in store for us – do any of you agree?
Christina Aguilera seen on Nov 23 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Though she’s worked hard to change her image as of late, it seems Christina Aguilera got some inspiration from her jazz inspired vintage stage as she worked the red carpet at the 2008 American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Nov 23. Wearing a gorgeous grey lace dress with floral appliqués and a voluminous skirt (to get the vintage look, try Walter’s Lace Trim Sweet Dress in Black and Nude or Ingwa Melero’s Carmelia Dress in Taupe), Mamaguilera definitely channeled her old image with her ringlets and crimson lips. I love that she finally left the falsies at home for once and let her peepers sparkle naturally, even forgoing the winged black eyeliner – quite an improvement! Throwing in a smattering of jewelry, from a chunky white bangle (I’d keep the vintage vibe going with Rachel Leigh’s adorable Audrey Gold Bangle in Gold instead), gemstone rings (try Rachel Leigh’s Gumball Ring in Caramel) and cascading bubble earrings (such as Michele Michel’s Triple Diamond Earrings in Smoky Quartz), Christina left a hint of her new image with her black nail polish but otherwise kept it clean. The dress is probably not the most flattering thing on her curvaceous body, but I love the style so much the look works for me – do you agree? In complete contrast to her look for the awards show, Mamaguilera recently depicted her recent style inspiration to the press: “I was very inspired by the look and feel of that [pop-art] genre, your Jane Birkins, your Blondies, females who have come before who have done this so many times and so well — almost as an homage to them. Also, speaking of [Andy] Warhol, Nico from the Velvet Underground… so it all kind of ties in to a pop-art feel and twist, with a mod look. But a futuristic taste of what’s to come.” Hmm… try to wrap your mind around all those pop culture icons! Do you think Christina achieved her goal with her newly shorn bangs and bright blonde locks, or is she injecting too much sex appeal into the mix?
Christina Aguilera seen on Nov 04 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Carrying some election info and proudly sporting her “I Voted” sticker, Christina Aguilera made her way to the ballot box on Nov 4 with her hubby Jordan Bratman in Beverly Hills earlier this week. Wearing a very coordinated look, from the shoes to the lips, one word comes to mind: Overdone. Mamaguilera started with a funky plaid newsboy cap, layered a red tank under a sheer black one (try Laura Dahl’s fancier Isadora Tank in Black over Black Halo’s Shirred Halter Top in Red) with a cozy tunic cardigan on top (like Zoa’s Open Drape Cardigan in Black), and added classic indigo skinnies (try ProportionofBlu’s Cinque Buttercup Fit Jean in Indigo) topped off with matching red patent ballet flats. The ‘fit might have been okay if she’d left in at that, but throwing in a long charm necklace and hoop earrings with charms in addition to the crimson pout – too much. But hey, at least it looks like she’s finally taking a break from the tanning booth. As her greatest hits album release on Nov 11 looms closer, photos are out and the jury is in: Mamaguilera’s new covershots for “Keeps Gettin’ Better” are her hottest yet, definitely blowing BritBrit’s post-baby body out of the water. Christina must have worked hard to get her tummy that toned again! The new compilation has all the classic Mamaguilera hits from “Genie in a Bottle” to “Ain’t No Other Man,” along with two new tracks that are supposed to be a taste of what we can expect her next project to sound like, set for release next year. Christina said, “My last record “Back to Basics” was all about going into the old and the past. This one I wanted to do a whole opposite direction and go into the future. So, I was very inspired by that.” I hope moving into the future will also inspire her to ditch the harsh lipstick and fake-tanner in favor of an au naturale look!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 23 2008 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Staying true to her “new and improved” look, Christina Aguilera held a press conference at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi on Oct 23, gearing up for her official Middle Eastern debut there the following night. She looks so sad and lost under all that goopy mascara, cakey orange foundation, brittle blonde bangs and Barbie pink lipstick – culture shock, perhaps? For a press conf, I would have thought Mamaguilera would pick something a bit more flattering – and less blatantly American, hence trashy – than this brightly colored embroidered tunic (tone it down with Kelly Cushing’s Tunic Top with Vintage Indian Applique in Indigo) with cropped black leggings (try Wifebeader’s classy Pearl Dancers Leggings in Black) and sky high Mary Jane stilettos. Adding a touch too many baubles, Christina added a long pendant necklace (check out Rachel Leigh’s Open Ball Necklace in Silver) mixed with a shorter initial pendant (if you like showing off your moniker, try Christie Martin’s Old English Small Necklace in Gold), oversized hoop earrings (like Lana’s elegant Miami Earrings in Yellow Gold) and a couple of cocktail rings (match the tunic with Rachel Leigh’s funky Bird Ring in Cobalt). The following evening, Mamaguilera took the stage in front of 20,000 fans and put on the biggest production the country has ever seen, complete with light effects and a fireworks display. Of her time spent in the bustling city of Abu Dhabi, Christina said, “I am only here a few days but I plan to have a few nice dinners and possibly see what the night life has in store for us. The city is really building up. There are great places to eat, great night life as well as beaches. It seems to have everything to offer.” If only it could offer Mamaguilera a more tasteful look!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 16 2008 in London, UK. Enjoying her time in London after unleashing her vocal talents at the ThisDay Africa Rising Festival, Christina Aguilera indulged in a romantic night on the town with her hubby Jordan Bratman, dining at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon on Oct 16. I’m having trouble thinking of the proper words to describe all the components she’s got going on here - as Tim Gunn would say, “That’s a lot of look!” From the peroxide and fake tanner to the mismatched pink pucker, it’s clear Christina could use a little help in the beauty department, along with a good tailor to secure her, ahem, assets. I don’t think anyone can argue the lashes aren’t the only falsies she’s flashing here! Though none of it works when you put it all together, Christina started with an elegant floor length pink frock revealing her buxom bosom (try Gold Hawk’s silk Straight Across Dress in Blush in the same hue), carrying a petite chain strap clutch with a feminine ruffle (like Carla Mancini’s Small Clutch in Black) topped with a sophisticated black overcoat (I love AmberLynn’s Victoria Coat in Plum). From there, adding the mod hoop earrings (dangly earrings like the Rose Swarovski Earrings in Silver by Michele Michel would have been in much better taste) and the 80’s eyes and lips completely clashes with all the feminine, classy items above – where was she going with this? Later that night, Mamaguilera changed into a more appropriate ‘fit and partied into the wee hours of the morning in the VIP room at Whiskey Mist. While sipping a cocktail with her hubby, they were approached by none other than Prince William, who chatted it up and switched numbers with Christina while the Batman looked annoyed to be cut out of the convo. Uh oh, I smell a drunken tiff coming on!
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 10 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Trying out a less flamboyant new look, Christina Aguilera sailed through the Los Angeles Airport on Oct 10, carrying her adorable baby boy while rushing to catch her flight to the UK. Mamaguilera was on her way to take the stage at Thisday’s Africa Rising Festival in London, joining a handful of other celebs to raise awareness to find sustainable solutions for Africa’s social and economic problems. Besides getting her career reignited, Christina recently opened up to People about the changes in her life over the past year: "It is really important to me that I don't lose myself. I still do things that make me feel good. I let my son experience who I am – as an artist, as a musician, things that I love and am passionate about." Motherhood clearly suits her well, and so does the casual look she’s got going on here. Much better than a too-short LBD and hooker boots she normally prefers, if you ask me! For her travels, Mamaguilera wore comfy black pants (try Hank Vintage Threads’ Brushed Cotton Terry Pants in Black) with a loose tank (like Rails’ simple Jacqueline Tank in Ivory) and a butter yellow cardigan (see Autumn Cashmere’s Cable Grandfather Sweater in Citrine, a sleeveless version in the same hue), completing her down-to-earth look with a grey knitted cap, red patent flats, and monstrous sunnies (check out Nour’s similarly shaped Baba in Oro Bianco). Not the most exciting ‘fit but definitely more appropriate than her latest picks. I'm curious, would any of you rock the hat?
Christina Aguilera seen on Oct 04 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. When Christina Aguilera debuted her white platinum blonde locks with razor sharp bangs at the VMA’s last month, I thought it had to be a weave, or at least a special ‘do for the occasion. However it seems the “Genie in a Bottle” babe has reinvented her look yet again, transitioning from her glam curls-and-red-lips phase into this… 80’s rockstar phase? Christina strolled through Beverly Hills on Oct 4 with her hubby, reminding us all that it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white… although the white hair is probably not what MJ had in mind! On the fashion front, I really do like Mama-guilera’s funky tunic tank with the sketched piano graphic (to make a similar statement, check out Signorelli’s Omni Peace Tank in Black) complemented by black skinnies (like True Religion’s Disco Billy Skinny Jean in Super Vixen) and silver ballet flats. Staying true to the contrast theme, Christina rocked her white rimmed sunnies with a long silver charm necklace (like Erica Anenberg’s Junk Charm Necklace in Sterling Silver), two silver chain bracelets (try Femme Metale’s Royal Crest Bracelet in Sterling Silver) and a deep tote with side buckles (like Rough Roses’ Pamila Hobo in Black). Not the most exciting ‘fit in the world but infinitely better without the hot pink lips! So what’s the explanation behind Mama-guilera’s new style? I have a feeling it has to do with her pending greatest hits release, Keeps Getting Better, that will be sold exclusively at Target. Have you heard the new single yet? Definitely worlds away from jazz-infused Back to Basics, Christina takes it to another level by calling herself a “superbitch” in the chorus… quite a different vibe from “Ain’t No Other Man”! When asked by a reporter if her upcoming tour will be as promiscuous as shows of the past, Mama-guilera replied, “If it happens to be raunchy so be it! It's a matter of self expression to me.” Hope her hubby feels the same!
Christina Aguilera seen on Sep 25 2008 in Hollywood Hills, CA. On the eve of the first presidential debate, Christina Aguilera got all dolled up to host a massive “Rock the Vote” party at the Esquire House in the Hollywood Hills on Sept 25. Christina has been a supporter of the “Rock the Vote” campaign in the past, but this is the first time I can remember her making a statement louder than “Vote!” at an event. All I can think is my, someone had a little too much fun with peroxide and self tanner! Rocking a mod LBD with a contrasting white band (for a similar eyepopping effect, try Tricia Fix’s Rene Mini Dress in Black) and a chic cropped jacket (step it up with Gold Hawk’s Ruffle Leather Jacket in Moonless Night), Christina let her Genie out of the bottle with her knee-high stiletto boots, smoky eyeshadow, and heavily lacquered lashes. Seriously, how is she holding those peepers open? Mama-guilera finished her ‘fit with an envious black and white checkered bag (check out Antoinette Lee’s toned down Anna Stitch Tote in Bone/Black), big hoop earrings (try Kimberly Faith’s Large Open Hoop Earrings in Brass with Gold) and a chunky bauble ring (gotta love Rachel Leigh’s Scripted Ring in Silver or Gold). While hosting the event to encourage America’s youth to get to the polls on Nov 4, Christina promoted her upcoming greatest hits album release while touting the importance of making your voice heard: “Rock the Vote is obviously important to just to get the message out there to young and old — and especially to young — that your voice, your opinion does matter. It's important for me, it's important for the next generation — for my son's generation. It's important to people my age and my sister's age, 10 years younger. Everyone that is able to have an opinion should let it be heard and should voice it.” We hear you, Mama-guilera!
Christina Aguilera seen on Sep 04 2008 in New York, NY. Flaunting her voluptuous curves in a sexy mini, Christina Aguilera took to the streets with Russell Brand on September 4 to promote MTV’s upcoming VMA’s – hosted by Brand with a “Genie in a Bottle” revival coming from Mama-guilera herself. For her curbside appearance, Christina paired her super bright airbrushed mini (try Laura Dahl’s Hockney Mini Skirt in Grape for a similar look) with a body hugging tucked in tank (like Autumn Cashmere’s Racer Back Tank in Black) secured by a wide patent leather belt (check out Jack Rabbit’s Patent Leather Breathless Belt in Black). Xtina went with her signature cross necklace (just like Fabian y Felipe’s Dore Cross Necklace in Silver) adding a simple circle cuff bracelet (try Michele Michel’s Bracelet in Silver) along with sky high pumps and her ever present hot pink lipstick. I think Christina pulls off the 80’s inspired look well, with one exception – why is her hair suddenly so stick straight and stiff looking? To me, it looks like a strong breeze will snap her tresses right off like twigs! Besides being in NYC for the VMA’s, earlier this week Mama-guilera announced a new fragrance under her empire, “Inspire.” I haven’t caught a whiff yet, but I’m hoping it will inspire her to go for more natural hair and lip colors in the future! Any thoughts?
Christina Aguilera seen on Sep 01 2008 in Manhattan, NY. Flaunting brilliant blonde, straightened locks, Christina Aguilera went out to family din-din in Manhattan on September 1, carrying her adorable baby Max with hubby Jordan Bratman in tow. Despite the fact that it can’t be easy to wear heels that high while carrying a squirming baby like Max, Christina politely stopped to sign autographs on her way into the eatery. For her dinner ‘fit, Mama-guilera rocked a long graphic print maxi dress (similar to Plenty by Tracy Reese’s Maxi Slip Dress in Azure), with sky high T-strap wedge heels, a long silver necklace and matching cuff bracelet (try Mickey Lynn’s Sweet Dreams Silver Accent Necklace with Rachel Leigh’s Snake Cuff in Silver), complete with big round shades covering her face (check out JeeVice’s Passionate in Antic Gold). I have a feeling Mama-guilera and family are settling into the Big Apple this week for Christina’s two upcoming performances, the “Fashion Rocks” showcase on September 5, and MTV’s 2008 VMA’s on September 7. Rumor has it, Britney Spears and Madonna may also be taking the stage at this year’s VMA celebration. Personally, I can’t imagine MTV wanting to give BritBrit another shot at a “comeback” after last year’s flop, but the chance of another 3-way kiss between the pop sensations – now you know that possibility and the ratings that would follow has to have producers buzzing! Britney’s rep denies she will appear this year - in fact, she is claiming she turned down the chance to perform again, and Madonna is unconfirmed due to her “Sticky and Sweet” tour in progress. Hmm, seems like a long shot to me, but what do you think – would a 5th year anniversary 3-way for Mama-guilera be a wise idea?
Christina Aguilera seen on Aug 23 2008 in Bel-Air, CA. Looking every bit as glamorous and voluptuous as her pre-baby self, Christina Aguilera dazzled the a-list audience at Donald Trump’s party in Bel-Air on August 23 with classic renditions of her biggest hits, including “Beautiful,” which left the Donald noticeably moved. Mama-guilera must have found an all night babysitter for little Max, because she partied until the wee morning hours with celebrities ranging from Hayden Panettiere and Hillary Swank to P Diddy and Orlando Bloom. The shin-dig kicked off the newest edition in the Donald’s long portfolio: the Trump International Hotel & Tower Dubai, a glistening 62 story masterpiece that is sure to be every celeb’s new favorite vacay destination. Christina donned a gorgeous black frock with a sequined bodice, ruffled skirt and sheer back detail (for similar va-va-voom LBD’s, check out Zoa’s Ruffle Tunic in Black or Karina Grimaldi’s Michael Mini Dress in Black) complemented by a thick buckled belt at the waist (like Linea Pelle’s Waist Belt with Leather Covered Studs in Black) and sexy peep toe heels with colorful piping. How can you not love this look? Though it’s a little over the top, I think Christina rocks it – do you readers agree? Mama-guilera was the star performer of the night while Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz kept the turn tables spinning, both giving spectacular shows that left everyone buzzing. Christina told the press, “On a night like this I definitely get those pre-performance butterflies. I think there’d be something wrong if I didn’t get them just a little bit — it’s Mr. Trump!” I guess even celebrities get nervous every now and then, but it paid off once again for Mama-guilera!
Christina Aguilera seen on Jul 30 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Although she is obviously not trying to make a fashion statement, I had to comment on Christina Aguilera’s appearance for Macy’s 150th anniversary ad campaign. Sporting a dramatic look for fall, Mama-guilera was clad in a sheer blouson (check out Zoa’s Polka Dot Ruffle Blouse in Black or Gold Hawk’s Short Ruffle Tunic in Raven Black), a flowy pleated skirt (like Walter’s Military Canvas Skirt in Khaki, luscious chestnut knee-high boots and craaazy crimped hair. My only guess is the hairstylist used an electric socket and a wet finger to create Christina’s intense bewitching look. Besides the over-the-top hair, the ad features some nearly nude dudes chilling on a plush velour couch with a very urban background setting. I can’t wait to see how Macy’s turns this around! In other nude news, an old David LaChappelle photo for Interview magazine from 2004 has surfaced on the web, featuring a very provocative Mama-guilera completely bare, save for a head scarf and sexy white stilettos. There has been some question as to whether or not the photo is legit – Pam Anderson is also in the photo, wearing lingerie – but you can definitely see Christina’s goods, slightly out of place with the other things going on in the photo, including a child holding some balloons. Check out the photo and see what you think – does it look like a Photoshop fake to you?
Christina Aguilera seen on Jul 08 2008 in Studio City, CA. Not one to sit on the sidelines, songstress Christina Aguilera has been hard at work in Studio City over the past few weeks working on her first album since her son Max was born in January. From the looks of things, Mama-guilera has her pre-baby body back and a few new projects in the works. This week it was announced Christina will strut, err, sing her stuff with superstars Beyonce, Mariah Carey, the Black Eyed Peas, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, Keith Urban and Rihanna at this year’s “Fashion Rocks” showcase in NYC. Back on July 8 Christina was spotted leaving the studio wearing a casual 80’s-esque screenprint tee (check out Hussy Jr’s Disco Doll Tee in White for a similar look that also gives back to charity), tight black leggings showing off her lovely gams (try Laura Dahl’s Longfellows Leggings in Noir), and a casual gray sweater (Woo’s Rosie Long Grandpa Cardigan in Heather Grey is a great basic). Always a little bold, Mama-guilera rocked electric blue pumps with a long silver necklace (check out Jessica Elliot’s Large Sterling Antique Skeleton Key Necklace), flashy silver hoops (like Rebecca Norman’s Medium Oval Hoop Earrings in Silver), and a big black tote (see Carla Mancini’s East West Tote in Metallic Crocodile for a similar tote with a peaceful message). The only part of this creative ensemble I’m not crazy about is the hot pink lipstick – do you think it works for her? In addition to her appearance at “Fashion Rocks,” Christina’s upcoming projects include a public service announcement for the “Rock the Vote” campaign in which she will sing “America the Beautiful” with her baby boy in her arms. On Larry King, Christina said, "It was really important for me to get involved and get excited about this election in particular, for the future of my son." Coming from a girl who cast her first ballot in the 2004 election, it’s refreshing to see a celeb getting involved in politics for unselfish reasons. Watch for this hot mama’s commercial on your local TV channels!
Christina Aguilera seen on Feb 09 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Christina Aguilera reminded us yet again that we are all "beautiful, no matter what they say" on the red carpet at the Broad Contemporary Art Museum opening in Los Angeles on Saturday, February 9. After recently giving birth, Aguilera showed off a much curvier shape on Saturday. Defining glamour, Christina stormed the carpet shining head to toe. Christina began her look with a pair of leopard skin heels. On top, Christina showed off her assets with a low cut cobalt blue dress (just like Lotta Stensson's Twisted Empress Dress in Peacock). Aguilera accessorized her look with a sterling silver clover style cuff (just like Jessica Elliot's Open Clover Cuff in Sterling Silver ) and a black stone and sterling silver necklace (check out Kuo Ting Jewelry's Metallic Black Resin Chain Necklace ). Christina was accompanied by hubby Jordan Bratman, leaving their new son Max home for the evening. Aguilera recently spoke about her new inspiration, her son Max, saying, "This whole incredible thing that's taken part in my life, between the pregnancy and the birth, I've got so much to be inspired about and so much in my life to write about," Christina tells, adding, "I've been brain-storming for the last nine months, actually. This next album will have a whole new me, so there's a lot to look forward to." Maybe this new inspiration will give her re-inspire in the studio as well. It's doubtful we will see Christina back at her "Dirrty" stage, but you never know.
