A Closer Look at Celine Dion's Style

By: Salma Ahmed

Ever since her silver beaded Met Gala gown, Celine Dion has been on my mind.

Two months ago, Dion strolled down the Met’s red carpet in an unforgettable Oscar de la Renta. Paired with a head-turning headpiece and a bold makeup look, Dion’s look was one of the most memorable of the night and one that only got more interesting the longer you look at it.

Dion isn’t someone I usually consider when thinking about fashion icons in the music industry but thanks to an examination of some of her looks I have come to the conclusion that she is one of the industry’s most underrated style icons. Next to Rihanna and Beyonce, Dion deserves a place on the wall of fashion-forward, trend-setting artists.

As of the first Monday in May I have been inspecting the singer’s style as well as her most recent looks and have been blown away with every picture I came across. From fashion events to the red carpet and even regular everyday tasks, the Canadian star doesn’t do anything without a little bit of style and a little bit of bling.

Her ability to drag elegance along with her wherever she goes and with whatever she wears is one of the main reasons that drew me to her. One of her most impressive skills is how she always manages to spice up even the simplest of outfits with over the top accessories and hairstyles.

Even at 51, she is not one to turn away from sporting a risky look or breaking all the fashion rules to ever exist. The 90s icon is still giving us one memorable look after another but we are too distracted to give her the recognition she so desperately deserves. Dion is undoubtedly a woman worthy of our attention, especially when it comes to her style.
