Halsey brought nostalgia to the red carpet event for "MaXXXine" at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday, June 24. As seen in the red carpet pictures, she channeled 80s glam, giving off a younger Cher vibe in a sequined gold number that showed off her stunning figure.

The sparkling outfit featured a sleeveless mermaid crop top and a matching skirt designed with cutouts at the hips, giving the illusion of a thong. The ab-bearing piece drew attention to Halsey's toned stomach, especially the body art on her waistline.

More tattoos graced Halsey's body, with several on their shoulder, arms, and under their cleavage. They completed their retro glam with Cher's signature hairstyle by donning a voluminous, black, curly wig that cascaded down their shoulders.

Halsey Reveals Health Struggles On 'The End'

As stated, Halsey's red carpet appearance comes weeks after they revealed their hidden health struggles in the first track from their upcoming fifth studio album.

The Blast reported they dropped the lyric video to the song "The End" on YouTube, with the emotional words reading:

"Every couple of years now, a doctor says I'm sick / Pulls out a brand new bag of tricks / And then they lay it on me / And at first, it was my brain, then a skeleton in pain / And I don't like to complain, but I'm saying sorry."

The haunting song continued with Halsey singing about their trauma, "f–ked up childhood," and how they hoped they would recover from their illness with love. However, the concluding lyrics revealed the health battle continued with the words:

"But the joke was always mine 'cause I'm racing against time/ And I know it's not the end of the world, but could you pick me up at 8?/'Cause my treatment starts today."
