Christina Aguilera Continues Her Love of Surreal Skirts

Usually, a skirt is a good, neutral wardrobe basic to build upon—unless you’re Christina Aguilera, that is. The pop singer has a history of wearing statement skirts that are bold, surreal, and way more unexpected than your standard mini or maxi style. This summer, for one, she wore a Namilia skirt that was shaped into the style of an Hermès Birkin bag: It even featured the top-handle straps and pockets! Yesterday, for an appearance at Jimmy Kimmel Live in L.A., Aguilera continued her love of the avant-garde with a brand new skirt. This one might even make you smile.

Aguilera stepped out in Diesel’s mouth-printed low-rise mini skirt. Like a real-life smile, the garment instantly draws your focus. You can’t quite look away from it, whether you enjoy it or not. And since it’s such a head-turning piece, Aguilera styled it correctly, with sleek black pieces such as a leather coat, cropped hoodie, and over-the-knee stiletto boots, all of which allowed that one-of-a-kind skirt to take the spotlight. It’s certainly a fashion risk, but it’s one that’s cheeky and doesn’t take itself too seriously. Whether the look will catch on as a trend is up for debate.
