Cher at the Oscar awards
It's the Academy Awards this Sunday. And as all the online publications look back on the awards ceremony's past, one name keeps getting mentioned: CHER....

In an article named "The Most Memorable Oscar Moments of All Time", Vanity Fair state about the one-named star's 1986 Bob Mackie masterpiece:

The singer still refers to her 1986 look as “the Mohawk year.” She concedes, “The hair may have been distracting but the dress was all cashmere. It was a piece of art, a truly beautiful thing.” She accented the look with one contact lens so that one eye was blue while the other was brown. In response to detractors telling her she was hurting her chance of becoming an Academy member with such out-there fashion, she said, “I could not be a member of the Academy and not belong to myself.”
