Cher stores all of her costumes in a climate-controlled vault to preserve them for posterity. The Believe singer has gone down in fashion history for the daring ensembles she's worn since the 1960s that were designed by her longtime collaborator Bob Mackie, and the historical importance of the costumes are not lost on her - she has locked them in a special vault, so generations to come can enjoy them too.

"They (costumes) have to be kept in a unit that is the right temperature so the fabrics are preserved," she explains to People magazine. "I don't plan to re-wear them, but also my whole life I was 106 pounds, and I haven't been that in a million years! I can't really get into most of them. There's a big difference between 106 and 126 (pounds)."

Despite gaining a little weight, Cher is gorgeous and fabulous at 71, and she stays fit by exercising every morning.

"I started out with 30 seconds and I thought I was gonna die," she explains of her daily plank routine. "Now I do three to five minutes!"

Cher also makes sure she keeps her flawless skin glowing by experimenting with different products.

"My skincare routine is very eclectic," she shares. "I don't stick to one particular product, I just have things that I love from different people. I have a friend, her name is Dr. Barbara Sturm, and she makes an eye cream and face wash that I love. I love Jan Marini products too. I also have Proactiv products that I love."

However, when she is not in front of the cameras or performing onstage, the star confesses she has absolutely no interest in looking good: "I'm kind of a bum," Cher admits. "I keep my hair in a bun, because it's just a pain in the a**."
