Cher has taken to Twitter to congratulate legendary designer Bob Mackie on his Tony Awards win.
The fashion mogul picked up the award for Best Costume Design of a Musical for The Cher Show, and the Believe hitmaker went online to share her joy over his victory.
“BOB, YOU DID IT!” the 73-year-old replied to a screenshot from Mackie’s acceptance speech. “MY (heart emoji) CANT TAKE THIS… NO ON (sic) IS BETTER THAN BOB MACKIE,& IM LIVING PROOF.”
“I’M SO CRYING,” she later added. “BOB MACKIE DESERVES THIS AWARD MORE THAN ANYONE WILL EVER KNOW.”
Mackie’s work with Cher is one of the showbiz world’s most famous partnerships, with the designer creating some of the If I Could Turn Back Time star’s most iconic looks, including the revealing black beaded two-piece she wore to the 1986 Oscars complete with plumed headdress.
While the creative has earned nine Emmy awards and has been nominated for three Oscars, this is his first Tony nod – and, as he also appears as a character in The Cher Show, he is also the first person to take home the costume design award for a production in which they are also a character.
Later in the evening, Stephanie J. Block took home the gong for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for playing Cher herself, and the I Found Someone star hailed Block as the “BEST ME”.
“I CANNOT STOP JUMPING, CRYING,LAUGHING,….I FEEL LIKE I WON AN AWARD,” she tweeted. “NOT EVEN SURE IF I CAN USE EMOJIS.”

The legendary singer’s longtime costume designer, Bob Mackie, took home the trophy for Best Costume Design in a Musical, while Broadway veteran Stephanie J. Block, who portrays Cher, won Best Actress in a Musical.

“BOB YAH,” Cher, 73, tweeted after Mackie’s win. “BOB, YOU DID IT. MY [HEART] CAN’T TAKE THIS!! NO ON [sic] IS BETTER THAN BOB MACKIE,& IM LIVING PROOF. I’M SO CRYING. BOB MACKIE DESERVES THIS AWARD MORE THAN ANYONE WILL EVER KNOW.”

Later in the evening, when Block received her award, the “If I Could Turn Back Time” singer excitedly tweeted, “OH GOD GODGOD STEPHANIE OH OH OH OH OF. I CANNOT STOP JUMPING, CRYING,LAUGHING,….I FEEL LIKE I WON AN AWARD!! NOT EVEN SURE IF I CAN USE EMOJIS. STEPHANIE,BESIDES ME…YOU ARE THE ‘BEST ME’ BOB I LOVED YOU THE MOMENT I SAW YOU.”

The Cher Show, which opened at the Neil Simon Theatre on Broadway in December 2018, is a jukebox musical that tells the true story of the pop star’s life and career. Three actresses play Cher in different stages of her life: Micaela Diamond as Babe, Teal Wicks as Lady and Block as Star.
