Céline Dion es una de las cantantes más exitosas de nuestros tiempos. Ha vendido millones de discos y es admirada por una gran legión de fanáticos alrededor del mundo por su espectacular voz. Sin embargo, su vida no ha sido tan sencilla como puedan imaginar.

Esta gran intérprete canadiense vivió uno de los peores momentos de su vida cuando debió cuidar a su esposo René Angélil, quien falleció de cáncer en 2014, apenas dos días antes de que falleciera su hermano, por la misma razón. El diagnóstico de su esposo la llevó a un retiro indefinido, mientras cuidaba de él.

Luego de esta etapa tan difícil, Céline demostró que podía seguir adelante con su vida y regresó a cantar en una exitosa estancia en Las Vegas y varias giras, donde sigue deleitando a sus aficionados.

Recientemente Dion realizó una sesión fotográfica para la revista Vogue, donde entre cambios de ropa permitió que le fotografiaran sin ropa, mostrando a sus 49 años un espectacular cuerpo y sobre todo una gran confianza en sí misma..

Here’s a little naked fact to ponder while Celine Dion changes looks between shows: for the past five years she has worn haute couture near exclusively for her own performances (in Las Vegas and on her current “mini-tour” of Europe). She performs a minimum two hours a night, five or six nights a week, dancing and curtseying and generally gesticulating sans abandon, in handmade, hand-beaded delicacies designed solely to walk a catwalk or a carpet (and often with handlers). For Celine’s orders, the houses send teams to Nevada for typically three fittings, before the garments are ultimately finished in her local, private atelier. Armani Prive, Schiaparelli, Giambattista Valli, Versace…only a partial list. Everyone, basically. In Vegas, Velcro panels are added to allow for her ribcage to expand or for a quick outfit change. Micro straps of elasticized chiffon prevent a slit from becoming a sloppy situation mid-squat. Shoes—always heels, never platforms—are ordered one size smaller (she is normally a 38) and refitted with metal shanks. Says Celine, “We have to make haute couture industrial.” And, more enigmatically: “The clothes follow me; I do not follow the clothes.” Which is to say: the haute couture, with all its fragility and handcraft, has to perform professionally for Ms. Dion. And privately as well. Years ago, Celine bought a classic little black dress from the Christian Dior atelier when the house was overseen by John Galliano. It is simple, falling to mid calf, and narrow as can be with just a hint of stretch. It requires a minimum of jewelry, a statement bracelet or perhaps one of the major diamond rings she designed with her late husband Rene Angelil: two pear cuts set in a wide pave band, or two hearts of diamond and emerald abstractly interlocking, on a cushion of yet more diamonds. This LBD forces you to walk one foot in front of the other. This is a dress Celine knows well and clearly loves, the simplest evocation of the private luxury of couture and the total antithesis of the red carpet hoopla that attends the union of fashion and celebrity. It is also the dress she wore to Rene’s funeral. #CelineTakesCouture Photo by @sophfei.

Con esta foto y la forma en que retomó su carrera, tras la muerte de su esposo, Céline nos deja un par de valiosas lecciones.

1. La vida continúa: Sin importar lo grave de la situación, una vez que la superas tienes derecho a seguir viviendo y, además, como en el caso de Céline que tiene hijos, existe el deber de que tu vida siga adelante para poder cuidar de ellos.

2. La mejor medicina es lo que amas: Con apenas 14 años ya Céline se dedicaba a cantar, lo que demuestra cuánto ama su oficio, por ello una vez que sintió que había cumplido con la gran labor de cuidar de su esposo, regresó a ese otro amor para tener fuerzas para seguir adelante.

“What is making the people who are interested in fashion now interested in me when I have always been interested in fashion?” So asks Celine Dion en route to the Christian Dior haute couture show, security guards in tow. She wears a tunic and mid calf skirt, tucked and belted and elevated by thigh high black boots. She has done her own makeup–as is her way–but her precise and dramatic eye contouring is obscured by the massive Dior gold shades selected by her stylist Law Roach (@luxurylaw). (“Why did you make me wear makeup if I was going to wear glasses like this?”) Celine began working with Law a little over a year ago, after her husband Rene passed and she began the long road of living again with great loss of a partner (“an amazing man”) but also the incredible blessing of “the quality of the time we spent together.” More on that later. For now it is enough to know that while Law may have contributed to the answer to Celine’s original question–why dion mania now?–the answer clearly lies with the lady herself. She keeps a master file divided into mini files of pages torn from magazines. She circles looks from collections special issues, turns down pages, and despairs when a look or accessory is not produced and the sample unbuyable. Celine Dion knows clothes. (She is also at a point in her life where she can enjoy them. Going to a fashion show “gives me a bit of freedom when my life has been work, discipline, hard hard work.”) Today at @dior there was a little work (celebrity gridlock in and out, intense heat which is never ideal with leather) and a lot of fun. Celine admires Ruth Bell’s gamine crop (“I really want a haircut like that”), the flatform boots (“the strength today!”), a wool coat dress for day with an open assymetric neckline (“like a calla lily”), the mousseline peering out from the long belted coats. After she said, “I forgot the jungle, the theme, I don’t care. I am not buying the animals, the trees. But the clothes?” she smiles. “I am already broke.” More on that later, and the significance of one legendary CD to another…. #CelineTakesCouture Photo by @sophfei.
