Dion doesn’t do off the rack.
That’s right, the Canadian couture queen won’t mess around with anything less than legendary.
Dressing for opening night, every day of the week, Céline might have stolen the hearts and minds of the French speaking public with her silken siren song, but she’s holding the fashion world to ransom.
A powerful force on the fierce front row circuit, she once famously said, ‘I don’t follow fashion, fashion follows me’ – such a statement could only be uttered by someone who takes sartorialism seriously. A dark horse that works on a first name basis with the likes of Karl and Giamba, when Vogue comes to you for styling tips during Paris Couture Week, well, you can pretty much count yourself as royalty.
Spending nearly 20 years at the top of the pops, red carpet glamour is written into her design DNA. Working every room with a selection of swag that testifies to her legacy as an international spotlight stealer, who else would have the gumption to go naked at 50?
An image that sent her reeling back into the press, the world went WOW as Céline gave us unapologetic sex appeal and deconstructed elegance as part of #CelineTakesCouture.
A bonafide artiste in every sense of the word, for the past five years she’s exclusively worn haute couture for every one of her concerts.
Performing up to six nights a week in a selection of the world’s finest handmade, hand-beaded silhouettes that come with their own handlers, designers will drop everything for Dion. With her own private atelier to transform catwalk classics into stage-ready outfits, Armani Privé, Schiaparelli, Giambattista Valli, and Versace are only a partial list of people on her speed dial.
Now performing sold out shows across the globe, the VAUGHAN girls decided they needed a lesson in stage presence from the longstanding Countess of couture.
Turning functional outerwear into an excuse to turn heads, this leather trench coat is the perfect statement piece for the season ahead.
Taken from one of her favourite designers, this Marni coat is used to update wardrobe essentials that we’re sure Céline would adore. First in line is our classic pure silk Hepburn shirt.
Styled with a pair of high waisted skinnies, we like to wear it with a few buttons open at the collar for a more relaxed look. Accessorize with a pair of ice pick metallic leather boots and a fringe bag to match the heavy metal adornment on the coat, Céline shows us how it’s done with a neat top bun and natural-looking makeup to ensure all eyes are on this killer kerbside coat!
We’re sorry if you have the Titanic theme song stuck on loop right now, so to distract your senses we’ve added a link to Vogue’s Céline homage as the perfect palate cleanser.
If that won’t work, well, just ask yourself, #whatwouldDiondo?
