Celine Dion has never taken a laissez-faire approach to fashion. And this summer is proof that the “Encore Un Soir” singer is having the time of her life stepping out in elaborate designer outfits in Paris while on the European leg of her tour. So, it’s no surprise that the Canadian songstress, 49, jumped at the chance to play dress-up in six dazzling haute couture looks in a new fashion video for Vogue.
The glamorous two-minute production unfolds with Celine swathed in a frothy ballerina pink Giambattista Valli tulle gown sitting at her vanity at the Ritz Hotel Paris. Celine practices her vocals as a variety of ornate headpieces are placed on her head: “Bring me the good stuff, bring me the big one,” she croons, before settling on a Marie Antoinette-inspired pastel blue wig.
The fashion video, directed by Gordon von Steiner, follows the “My Heart Will Go on” singer in a series of captivating couture looks set against the romantic backdrop of the City on Light. In one scene, the mom of three dons an embellished Rodarte jumpsuit with a lavish floral headpiece. In another, she’s serving up her own fashionable je ne sais quoi, wearing a deconstructed Maison Margiela number in the kitchen.
The high fashion parade comes to a dramatic ending with a Chanel-clad Celine dancing on a boat as it sails along the Seine while the sun sets over the Eiffel Tower.
Earlier this month, the GRAMMY winner bared all, literally, for the fashion bible and opened up about her approach to style.She explained that she loves to play around with her wardrobe because it “gives [her] a bit of freedom when [her] life has been work, discipline, hard hard work." It’s this free-spirited sartorial outlook that has helped the Celine earn her stripes as a new style icon.
