During the prestigious Paris Fashion Week, Cher, the legendary “Goddess of Pop,” graced Balmain‘s womenswear Spring/Summer 2024 runway show on Wednesday, September 27. She has an estimated net worth of $360 million as of 2023.
Born on May 20, 1946, the 77-year-old music icon attended the event with her rumored beau and fellow musician Alexander “AE” Edwards, evoking memories of their stylish first meeting during Paris Fashion Week in late September 2022.

Cher and Alexander “AE” Edwards’s journey has been a rollercoaster of love. Their story started in November 2022 when they were romantically linked, holding hands during a stroll in Los Angeles.
Rumors swirled about their engagement, fueled by a dazzling diamond ring, but sources clarified that it was just a gift.
However, earlier this year, reports surfaced of a breakup in May, shortly after their glamorous red carpet debut at the March Versace Fall 2023 fashion show in Los Angeles.
Despite their past challenges, the couple’s attendance at the Balmain fashion event and other recent public appearances this month hinted at a rekindled romance.

Cherilyn Sarkisian, widely known as Cher, has a diverse ethnic heritage. Her father was Armenian, while her mother had English and German roots, with more distant traces of Irish, Dutch, and French ancestry.
Front and center, they held hands and cozied up to each other, basking in the luxury fashion brand’s show. Their chemistry was palpable, affirming their commitment to making their relationship work.
During the occasion, Cher made an entrance that spoke volumes, decked out in Balmain from head to toe. The iconic singer opted for a minimalist color palette that commanded attention as she claimed her front-row seat.

Her sartorial choices mirrored her presence – Cher sported a cropped velvet white blazer adorned with intricate black statement embellishments on the bodice and beaded tassel embroidery on the hem. Beneath, she flaunted a chic black lace bra top adorned with a bow.
Completing the ensemble, she paired the jacket with classic black tailored pants and tied it with a coordinating wrap skirt acting as a sash belt.
Cher’s signature long, jet-black hair cascaded in soft, loose waves, accentuated by a light makeup palette.

These sleek ankle-length boots expertly streamlined Cher’s silhouette while the platform soles offered her an impressive boost in height.
Meanwhile, Alexander “AE” Edwards, born in 1986 and is 40 years younger than Cher, matched his former girlfriend’s black-and-white theme.
The 37-year-old music executive wore an oversized black suit layered over a casually untucked white button-down shirt.
Completing his look with finesse, he concealed his eyes behind black sunglasses and donned black square-toe platform leather shoes.

Although they haven’t officially confirmed their reunion, sources suggest they are giving their relationship a second chance.
In September, an insider shared with Us Weekly, “They had stayed in communication even though they called things off a few months ago. They’ve reached a point where they want to give things a second try. They’re not officially back together yet, but they’re enjoying spending time together again and they make each other happy.”
