Her longtime collaboration with designer Bob Mackie proved a success for the actress. CNN.com quotes the designer as saying of Cher: "She could wear anything. She was like a big Barbie doll."
"Showing up at an award show in a see-through dress is a sure-fire way to provoke a lot of discussion, which the celeb in question might misinterpret as approval or even envy on the part of other people," said About.com Guide to Psychology Kendra Van Wagner. "Other celebrities may even act this way because it gives them a sense of power over their audience."
