The larger-than-life singer is sud­denly the coolest name in fash­ion

The Kit - - Front Page - BY VERON­ICA SAROLI

Phoebe Philo, take note: There’s an­other Cé­line tak­ing Paris by storm. Af­ter Cé­line Dion tapped Zen­daya’s stylist Law Roach this sum­mer, the Cana­dian icon un­der­went a wardrobe over­haul that launched the 48-year- old into megafash­ion star­dom in a mat­ter of hours.

Dion was sit­ting front row at Gi­ambat­tista Valli dur­ing Haute Cou­ture Week in Paris one day (giv­ing a dou­ble-thumbs-up plus stand­ing ova­tion for good mea­sure), then wear­ing a limegreen Ba­len­ci­aga dress be­fore any­one else the next. And she sealed her fash­ion star­dom with a meta-fab­u­lous act: don­ning an uber-cool Vete­ments Ti­tanic sweat­shirt. Yes, that Ti­tanic.

Dion was a pro­po­nent of do­ing her thing be­fore do­ing your own thing was cool and, sure, she’s looked a lit­tle dorky at times, but this trans­for­ma­tion—and sub­se­quent recog­ni­tion—feels equal parts en­dear­ing and to­tally earned, be­cause we knew she had it in her all along.

We charted the chart-top­per’s im­pec­ca­ble fash­ion his­tory. If you’ve ever made a joke about Dion’s style (we’ve all been there), it’s time to eat your words.


Dion re­mained glitzy in an eye-catch­ing se­quined suit for a To­day Show con­cert in July.
