Celine Dion Emerges as the Style Icon of Couture Fashion Week, and My Personal Hero
There is a kind of street style at Haute Couture Fashion Week that is wonderfully wearable and relatable. There are things I see on fellow editors, and even influencers, and think: I could wear that. That's not even remotely what popped into my head when I saw the photos of Celine Dion living her most fashion-forward life attending the shows, parties, and photoshoots in Paris. In fact, I thought the exact opposite: I don't know if I could ever wear that. Where would one have the occasion to go pantless in a coordinating printed leotard and blazer? You might ask. Not in my life have I ever encountered such an opportunity or a dress code — or even dared to dream of one . . . until Celine blessed us with these looks.
She's the Carrie Bradshaw of Couture Week, with a bigger budget (yes, bigger than even Hollywood, Vogue cover shoot, movie-version Carrie), procuring only couture for her couture show appearances and adding to her growing outfit tally every time she steps out in something new and more drama-inducing than her last. With each fantasy-filled outfit change, she's very quickly solidified herself as the style icon of Haute Couture Week, leaning into the Fashion, with a capital "F" and giving us the whole runway right here on the street.
