Entertainer of the Year & Street Style Star of 2017 – Celine Dion

Celine Dion experienced something of a rebirth in 2017, and I think it’s safe to say that we all enjoyed—or were at least entertained—watching every minute of the iconic singer take the stage—both literally and figuratively.

It was a big year for the songstress, as it marked the 20th anniversary of her equally iconic ‘Titanic’ love song, ‘My Heart Will Go On.’

And, because she’s never done things by halves, her style was equally monumental, with a focus on couture.

Early on, she had me sitting up and paying attention with her white Stephane Rolland Couture gown that put any other rendition of bold shoulders to shame. Couture moments from Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad also provided plenty of sartorial eye candy.

Celine Dion rocks Rochas on the streets of Paris

Celine Dion continues to live out a fashion fantasy in Paris, recently making the rounds in two totally different Rochas numbers that, while bold, will be likely considered slightly more tame than her recent Alexander McQueen run.

Thursday (July 27): I did say more tame, but with this Rochas Pre-Fall 2017 python coat and matching Balmain thigh boots, Celine certainly strutted on the wild side last week. Styled with a Wolford dress and a Celine Dion Collection bag, this matchy snakeskin ensemble maintains a certain sophistication for its sleek palette and is another look for the books.

Wednesday (August 2): Here, she really did dial back the statement-making punch in favour of a lesson in pink panache. There was much fashion-y charm in her Rochas Pre-Fall 2017 blouse and silky skirt, which was lovely for its more laid-back yet stylistic ease.

Celine Dion’s street style takes a risqué route in Alexander McQueen

My strong belief is that Celine Dion can do no wrong, and the feeling was not about to change as she left the Ritz Place Vendome in Paris yesterday afternoon (August 1).

Her latest jaw-dropping street style look comes courtesy of Alexander McQueen.

This stunning lingerie-inspired Spring 2017 gown with a risqué corset bodice and floral embroidered tulle might be a step too far for some, but my feeling is she’s just getting started.

Is this her best look to date?

Perhaps not, but I’m far too busy enjoying the pageantry of it all to delve too deep into that.

A pair of cat eye sunglasses and caged heels finished off the look.

Celine Dion rocks Mario Dice out in Paris again

Another day, another bold fashion move from Céline Dion who was out and about in Paris on Saturday (July 29).

There would be nothing simple about this black-and-white Mario Dice Fall 2017 ensemble, as it continued to play into Céline’s dramatic new outlook.

Big, billowy power sleeves; an even bigger gold, power belt buckle; and perky, dimensional floral embellishment springing across the pencil skirt—these were indeed the makings of secretary style gone avant-garde.

Naturally, she would not leave her hotel without a pair of her statement sunnies along with a Chloe ‘Drew’ bag to wrap up the look—although I would have left the tights at home.

Celine Dion serves up a double dose of Gucci in Paris

Paris has certainly given Celine Dion a certain sartorial je ne sais quoi, as she continues to make style waves in the French city with no shortage of fun—often-extravagant, sometimes questionable—ensembles.

Monday (July 17): Fun was certainly the name of her game in this Gucci ensemble that brought a glam, embellished influence to a glorified baseball jersey uniform. And what’s a glam uniform without equally sizzling Gucci sock-stilettos in a sweet, candied-apple red. A topknot and Hermes Birkin bag completed Celine’s unique version of sporty style.

Tuesday (July 18): With another Gucci ensemble, Celine channeled the full-on quirkiness of this Asian-influenced, floral-print dress. It was really the bold, clashing explosion of colours that made the frock such an eccentric, granny-glam look—that, and yet another version of her oversized, retro shades.
