Even celebrities can't escape the curse of cellulite... Christina Aguilera reveals dreaded 'orange peel' at L.A event

By Daily Mail Reporter

Cellulite: Christina Aguilera revealed 'orange peel' legs at an appearance for Extra The Grove in LA today

She has curves to die for but Christina Aguilera is proof that all the money and fame in the world can't stop you falling prey to cellulite.

There's an irony in the fact that the Lady Marmalade singer suffers from the dimples, which are often described as 'orange peel' because of their texture and appearance.

The singer, who was taping a segment for U.S entertainment show Extra at The Grove shopping mall in L.A, wasn't helped by being raised up on chair at an unflattering angle.

The towering Louboutin shoes and thigh-skimming skirt that the 30-year-old chose to wear also drew attention to her dimpled thighs, especially when she crossed her legs.

Cellulite is usually a genetic inheritance, but the mum-of-one could take steps that would improve the appearance of her legs.

Avoiding sugar is key, as is drinking plenty of water and eschewing alcohol.

The latter is Miss Aguilera's Achilles Heel - or thigh - to be exact, the singer was detained by the West Hollywood police in February because she was too drunk to look after herself.

But Aguilera, who has apparently just recorded a duet with Adam Lambert, seems to be relishing her role as a mentor and judge on hit TV talent contest The Voice.

And it seems Christina Aguilera is going a little bit further than just singing advice when it comes to influencing her young charges.

Finalists and 'Team Christina' members Raquel Castro and Lily Allise arrived at the event in Los Angeles today dressed remarkably similar to their mentor, who was wearing a black and white leopardskin print shirt and short black miniskirt.

The wannabes were clearly taking a leaf out of Christina's style book with their outfits, with finalist Raquel Castro wore an animal print minidress with black peep toe heels similar to the singer.

And singing wannabe Lily Allise wore a near-identical leopardskin top, teaming it with skin tight black trousers and lace up shoes.

The finalists were there to watch Christinajudge a singing contest with the winner awarded tickets to a taping of The Voice.

The talent contest is entering its final stages, with Raquel and Lily set to compete in the Live Show rounds next week.

Christina clearly faced a dilemma on last week's show when she had to choose between Lily and contestant Cherie Oakley to join her final four.

'I'm not looking for perfection,' she said. 'I'm looking for passion and emotion.

'It's going to be really hard for me to send one of my babies home. It's so hard. My two angels,' she added, before selecting Lily

However she looked markedly cheerful today as she interacted with the crowd, joking and pulling some dramatic faces and at one point posing for a photo with the event's host Mario Lopez.

She was accompanied by her boyfriend Matthew Rutler, who escorted her by the arm into her waiting car after the event.

The final 16 contestants on the NBC talent show will begin the live rounds stage of the competition next week.
