Wigs for days: Eurovision winner Celine Dion closes couture season modelling high-rise hairpieces


She’s the singing wonder woman who gave the sinking of the Titanic life in the 1997 film, lit up the Las Vegas strip with a sensational residency show and followed in ABBA’s footsteps to achieve international acclaim following her win at the Eurovision Song Contest.

And now international superstar Celine Dion has thrown herself into fashion, starring in a visionary photoshoot for Vogue, modelling hairpieces from noted hair stylist to the stars Julien d’Y.

Julien describes Dion as an “exceptional model” and from these sickening snaps we’re inclined to agree.

Taken at iconic locations across Paris, including the garden of the Palais Royal, the river Seine and the Ritz Paris, the shoot shows the “Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi” singer in a range of moods.

Up first Celine favours fashionista femme fatale, rocking a Marie Antoinette ‘do that’ll have the peasants eating cake for weeks.

She follows that up with flower power, modelling a petalled crown and all-around floral look, originally commissioned for Anna Wintour to use on models at New York’s prestigious Met Ball.

Keen to remind us what a kween she is, Celine then rocks a Louis XIV inspired number, glittering in gold like the sun king before her. So far as we’re concerned mama should have considered modelling a long time ago.


The shoot was a part of Vogue’s Couture Week and coincided with Dion’s four-night concert series at AccorHotelsArena in Paris.

The 50-date Celine Dion Live tour is the star’s first large-scale international tour since she took her album Taking Chances on tour in 2008-2009. It may have been a werk trip, but when your werk is performing music you love and modelling looks that leave your fans gagging it can’t be all bad.

Dion hit the headlines in January when it emerged she was among those acts who had turned down an invite to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States.

Are you gagging on the eleganza? Can Celine do anything wrong? Let us know in the comments box below!
