Reinvention is arguably the key to keeping the flames of stardom lit, and Celine Dion has managed to add fuel to her own sartorial fire in recent years. At 49 years old, the five-time Grammy winner had never before really been associated with the fashion crowd, but recently she's had us tapping out credits that include a list of designers any stylist would kill for.
So when did her makeover commence? As many unforgettable style moments do, it all seems to have started on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards, where in 2016 Dion dazzled in a metallic gold dress from a relatively unknown Russian designer,Valentin Yudashkin which she paired with and sky-high Saint Laurent pumps for an emotional performance that proved she was prepared to be back on top.
Her secret weapon, it seems, is Law Roach, the stylist behind Zendaya’s cool-girl look. Roach has successfully convinced the Canadian singer to not just wear classically minimalist designers like Jil Sander, but also fuse her look with in-the-know, streetwear favorites, like Off-White by Kanye West’s dear pal Virgil Abloh.
In 2017, the fashion icon, who's about to drop a fresh new lifestyle collection at Nordstrom, has continued to both hit the city streets and stage to deliver one standout look after the next.
1. IN THIGH-HIGH BALMAIN BOOTS
Who needs pants? Not Dion, who exited her hotel in Paris dressed in a Balmain boots that don't reveal an inch of skin but prove you can definitely say goodbye to traditional bottoms. She styled them with a matching graphic tee, a dramatic coat, and a black leather hat.
2. IN HEAD-TO-TOE FLORALS
Who said you've gotta take a subtle approach to florals? Not Celine Dion. The singer hit the streets of Paris in a fantastically fun all-floral Roberto Cavalli look that consisted of a tailored trench, matching jacket, and wide-leg flare pants. As always, she carried a massive geometric bag and, because it's Celine, oversize sunnies.
3. IN NEON YELLOW BALENCIAGA
We typically leave our neon pieces for the gym or, say, an EDM-fueled rave. But Celine Dion understands the power of Balenciaga. She rocked a blindingly bright yellow dress with an equally standout Saint Laurent leather jacket, Le Silla boots, and an oversize Givenchy tote. This is rock-n-roll chic at its finest.
