WITH four changes during her performance, the 28-year-old chose from twelve different costumes.

During each show, Sam changed six times, wearing costumes including a Virgin Mary-inspired look and a ruffled pink dress.
Some outfits even sparked a backlash.

CHRISTINA, 42, said she wanted to celebrate the queer community and therefore chose to work with designers who are LGBTQ+.
Reviews called the show “dramatic and stunning,” and that’s no surprise since the star’s cheeky costume theme was PVC, with breast-enhancing corsets and black PVC chaps. The singer was definitely in a good mood with her S&M-inspired look.

Some say she jumped on the Barbiecore bandwagon after the film’s release.
We say: So what!
