THE STYLE ICON
The 49-year-old is hardly a new celeb, but she is one of the few genuine icons around. She’s been famous for the better part of 30 years, even though her music is the opposite of cool (it’s a guilty pleasure). Still, My Heart Will Go On remains one of the best-selling singles in history. But it’s Dion’s style that’s suddenly got everyone talking. In 2016, she started working with “image architect” (aka stylist) Law Roach, who also works with US singer Zendaya. He put her in a Vetements Titanic hoodie, and a fashion star was born. It turns out that Dion is one of the few women who actually wears couture (she’s done so for every one of her Las Vegas shows for the past five years). Moreover, she’s fun: She was photographed at Couture Fashion Week posing, being silly, draping herself over cars, and then in that amazing Vogue video where she modelled the collections. Also, she seems utterly uninterested in appearing aloof and ice-queen-like, and that’s what makes her cool.
