File the following under “Words We Never Thought We’d Write.” We have a newfound respect for Celine Dion. No, really. There’s nothing so likeable and admirable as a person picking themselves up and dusting themselves off after hardship, but when she manages to do so in high style? Darlings, we’re so there. What better way to get back into life after the death of your husband than to jet off to the Paris shows and wear gorgeous couture? We should all get such a chance.

That doesn’t mean we won’t judge the looks, though. We are, after all, us.

 

Celine Dion spotted arriving at the Christian Dior Fall 2016 couture show as part of Paris Fashion Week in Paris, France.

It’s all a bit much in a “I was handed everything you see here and told to wear it” sense. It’s a pretty chic and kickass look, but it’s vaguely overstyled, what with the focus-pulling jewelry (which we suspect is hers because it just doesn’t look like something a Dior stylist would’ve picked), leather gloves and Mary Janes. We’d have told her to tone down the diamonds, ditch the gloves (it is July, after all) and stick with a pair of fairly simple booties or plain pumps. The bag is optional. Still, it’s a good look for her.

This one, on the other hand, just screams “I was told to wear this.” The Dior really suited her because if she has a signature look, it’s going to be something with pants. Most of her more famous outfits were suits. The jacket is fabulous and the purse is really cute, but the dress is ridiculously overdesigned and doesn’t remotely suit her. She’s just not a ruffly gown kind of gal. The earrings are pretty, but the necklace is all wrong for that neckline. And she should fire whoever told her to pair brown shoes with a pink purse and a B&W ensemble.

Still, you go, Miss Celine! Nice to see you swimming around in the couture waters for once. More of this, Madame.
