Less than a month ago, the only Celine that mattered in fashion was the brand led by the painfully chic, understated Phoebe Philo. But there’s been a strange and unexpected U-turn in recent weeks – enter Celine Dion who has become summer’s most talked-about style icon. Her recent tour saw her in Demna Gvasalia’s Balenciaga; back in May she attended fashion’s big party, the Met Gala; and, most recently, she was seen enthusiastically applauding at the couture shows in Paris. The Dionaissance is real.
As a consummate showgirl, Dion has always loved fashion. In fact, for the past five years, she’s nearly exclusively worn couture for her own performances – from Schiaparelli to Versace. But her status as an avant-garde style maverick is entirely new.
This is how she did it.
She’s wearing buzzy labels
She’s hired a relevant stylist
Fashion loves irony and nostalgia
She’s the smiling enthusiastic opposite of the fashion industry
She is obsessed with fashion
She doesn’t do casual
She refuses to ‘dress for her age’
She’s a survivor
