Céline Dion might just be streetwear’s new hero. The iconic Canadian songstress has literally pulled a “titanic” style maneuver recently, all courtesy of superstar stylist Law Roach.
Dion has gone from her painfully glam uniform of Armani Privé and Versace couture to fearlessly don left-field fashion credentials such as Balenciaga, Vetements and OFF-WHITE — she even stepped out in a Louis Vuitton x Supreme number recently.
Over the course of her three-decade career, Dion has never really been known for her subversive sartorial choices but at 49 years old, the legend is making serious moves to become the fashion world’s new darling.
In an industry that’s openly obsessed with youth, Dion’s new-found style status is a solid affirmation that style and beauty are timeless. She even posed nude for Vogue recently, and it’s a sure sign of progression in the wider industry’s approach to age and beauty politics too.
Dion’s style evolution first garnered mass attention when she stepped out in a billowing Vetements “Titanic” hoodie at couture fashion week last year. It was poetic irony at its finest, given that Dion was the voice behind the movie soundtrack’s smash hit “My Heart Will Go On”.
Since then, Dion’s style choices have been totally dauntless, and while she’s wholly comfortable opting for Gucci miniskirts and Saint Laurent booties, the style siren is just at home in hypebeast mode, flexing Yeezy and OFF-WHITE without a second thought.
Dion’s penchant for eclectic steez is only set to evolve, and she’s recently been spotted out in an edgy mix of high fashion labels, wearing everything from an acid green Balenciaga dress to an OFF-WHITE leather trench coat, all expertly mixed with statement vintage pieces. Slay on, Céline.
To celebrate Céline Dion’s style renaissance and new-found streetwear icon status, we’ve rounded up some of her boldest fashion moments in recent memory.
Sneaker Shopping in Yeezys
While shopping in Vegas, Céline and her 16-year old son stopped by Urban Necessities, a streetwear destination known for its edit of vintage and hard-to-find sneakers from labels like Air Jordan and adidas. No doubt clued in by her young son, she opted for some hysteria-inducing Yeezy sneakers. Go off, Celine.
Fabulously Eating A Hot Dog in Versace Couture
After the Met Gala after-party wound down, Céline took the ‘gram and posted a photo of herself gorging on a street hot dog, all while wearing an epic asymmetric Versace gown. While we’re not quite sure if Donatella would approve, it’s good to know that even Celine isn’t immune to regretful drunk food decisions.
Celine Hearts Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh
Believe it or not, but Céline Dion seriously stans for OFF-WHITE. She’s bopped around Paris Fashion Week wearing one of the brand’s statement trench coats, and even performed in a custom OFF-WHITE denim ensemble. Most recently, she’s indulged in the brand’s more casual offerings too.
Céline Dion Slaying in LV x Supreme
Don’t be surprised at this point. Yes, that is Céline Dion casually greeting her fans in a Louis Vuitton x Supreme pajama set. Dion joins a closed circle of celebs who managed to get their hands on the coveted duds, and the likes of Justin Bieber, Drake, 2Chainz and Lady Gaga have been flexing their LV x Supreme garms on the ‘gram.
Céline Meets Givenchy
A comparably low-key moment for Céline, where she effortlessly stunts in a leather Givenchy jumpsuit, paired with a crisp Céline shirt (obviously) and sealed off with a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti for Kanye West heeled sandals. We’re sure Yeezy approves.
Céline Loves a Balenciaga Dad Cap
Céline isn’t messing around. Here is she posing like the true G she is in some super-sized striped steez, a pair of aviators and a Balenciaga dad cap to seal it all off. Celine has obviously been swiping inspo from the global style set, and it’s safe to say she wears the dad cap as well as any seasoned fashion editor on the show circuit right now.
Céline’s Canadian Tuxedo Moment
The “Canadian Tuxedo” might inspire horror in the eyes of some hardened fashion folk, but when Céline does it, it’s impossible to not bow down. Clearly, Céline is obsessed with Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE, and her stylist extraordinaire, Law Roach, directly approached Abloh to design a custom denim-on-denim piece. The songstress wore the embellished denim look during a live performance and it’s further solid proof that Céline can pull off even the most taboo of trends.
Drake Tells Céline He’s Getting Her Faced Tatted on His Chest
At this year’s Billboard Music Awards, Céline casually caused millennials everywhere to weep with joy when she belted out her iconic hit “My Heart Will Go On” in a striking angel-winged gown by Stephane Rolland Haute Couture. Naturally, Drake, a well-documented connoisseur of streetwear and notable musician, paid his respects to the queen backstage after her performance. Drake proudly tells his fellow Canadian that he’s just one year away from getting her face tattooed on his torso, and we can’t wait.
