Celine Dion obviously is not a woman of style. Try to think of a Celine style moment and you won’t be able to; unless you’ve been following Paris Couture Fashion week where she has been spotted in one after another incredible ensemble.
I spent an evening not so long ago bingeing on Celine’s music videos for no good reason. She’s clearly an incredible singer, and has some kick-ass tunes (fun fact: CM and I do one mean version of Tell Him. I’m Babs), but her style is as unmemorable as the shit pre-made sandwich I had for lunch.
I’m not saying what she wears is hideous. In the past few years she’s been doing a good job at rich woman chic: scarves, high-heeled boots, smart blazer etc. etc., and while she looks great, she’s just another yummy mummy who shops in designer stores where all the clothes are nice, and if you’re rich enough, like Celine, you’ll get a shop assistant who won’t put you in the worst things because they resent your riches and know you don’t know the difference.
But even though Celine doesn’t have style, she wants it. And what Celine wants, Celine gets. The newest member of Celine’s probable roster of helpers is Law Roach, who has styled Ariana Grande, Ruby Rose and Zendaya – one of the most stylish up and comers around.
In an interview with Elle, Roach revealed that after Celine saw Zendaya on some kids’ show she stars in, she started following her, noted her style and presumably got her phone minder to discover how she could steal her style(ist).
I like her thinking. Law says: “She started looking at the things [Zendaya] was wearing and basically said, ‘You know, this girl is like 19, but I can wear the same clothes that she wears because it’s so sophisticated.'” Damn straight, Celine!
The ‘style architect’ has been working with Celine as she catwalks around Paris and people are finally starting to notice her for something other than her music. Or her much-older husband/manager. Or her terrible teeth (now fixed!).
Celine’s husband died not so long ago, and then her brother, and with this info I’m making an educated guess that she is silver-lining it and using the sad happenings to start a new, better-dressed chapter of her life.
Celine has got herself a new friend in Law, too; she’s the star of his Instagram feed at the moment, making us want our very own Law in our lives.
It’s not a one sided relationship, Celine is the reason why he sat on the FROW at Dior on ‘one of the best days of [his] career’.
This won’t be the last time you hear about Celaw (I know that’s not going to happen but I’m doing it anyway). Move over Rachel Zoe, there’s a new celeb stylist in town.
