Carmit Bachar — who is one-fifth of the hugely successful girl group The Pussycat Dolls — took to Instagram to reveal she is Lapalme Magazine’s latest cover girl. Not only did the 45-year-old entertainer look sensational in the shoot, she also got real for the issue’s interview.
The “I Don’t Need a Man” hitmaker stunned in a red cut-out swimsuit with gold detailing. Over the top, she wrapped herself up in a navy kimono-style robe that featured an all-over pattern. Bachar sported her signature fiery red hair with pink highlights and styled her wavy locks down in a middle part. The singer accessorized with numerous rings and kept her nails short with a coat of polish.
The cover shot saw Bachar pose in a sultry location. She was captured leaning against what looked to be a rock covered in moss. She presented her side to the camera and stretched her right arm out in the direction of the lens. Her pose helped show off her striking features and she sported a soft expression.

She geotagged her upload with Maui, Hawaii, letting fans know what island the snapshot was taken on.
For her caption, Bachar expressed that she was honored to be on the front of the magazine and thanked everyone who made it a reality.
In the tags, she credited the photographer Caitlin Grace, her hairstylist Michael Solis, and the editor-in-chief Kevin LaPalme.
In the span of one hour, her post racked up more than 1,100 likes and many comments, proving to be very popular with her followers.
“Looking more beautiful than ever before,” one user wrote.
“Queen Carmit,” another person shared, adding multiple flame emoji to their message.
“Wow, beautiful cover shot!! Amazing,” remarked a third fan.
“You haven’t aged a bit,” a fourth admirer commented.
When The Pussycat Dolls went on a hiatus, Bachar married longtime partner Kevin Whitaker and gave birth to their daughter, Keala Rose. Within the issue, the singer admitted she wanted to take her biracial child to the Black Lives Matter protests, but ultimately chose not to, per ET Canada.
“There were so many things running through our heads. It’s a very delicate and fragile moment in the world right now, but I think truths are being revealed and true colors are coming out,” she said.
“I wanted to go to the protests and show my daughter what people are standing up for, but her father was not comfortable with that. There was a fear there understandably because there was an unpredictability, even when the protests were peaceful.”
