Naturally, Céline Dion has whipped through a dizzying lineup of extraordinary fashion moments at Paris Couture this week. And while each elaborate confection is more awe-inspiring than the next, her latest look—debuted ahead of the Alexandre Vauthier show this afternoon—caused heads to swivel even more than usual.
At first blush, Dion’s off-the-shoulder ivory gown appeared to cover the lower half of her frame with its extreme draping. But when she lifted her billowy sleeves to the side, the frock’s mini-skirted hemline—and her impossibly toned legs—were revealed to stunning effect. The secret behind her sculpted limbs? At 51, the Québécoise singer and mother of three maintains her sinewy physique by dancing ballet with her backup dancer Pepe Muñoz. “We stretch and we do the barre, we kind of improv,” she explained during a press conference announcing that she was L’Oréal Paris’s newest spokeswoman back in April. “I do this four times a week. I’m working hard, but I like to move!”
Her feel-good workout delivering undeniable results, the French-Canadian superstar has never radiated more confidence. So here’s to more fantastical design statements—and flashes of limb—from Dion as the week continues.
