Céline Dion covers the September issue of CR Fashion Book photographed by Valentin Herfray and styled by Danielle Emerson.
On loving photo shoots: “I honestly love photo shoots, and I love everything about art and making photo shoots,” Dion tells the magazine about modeling. “It was interesting to see myself in this distorted fish-eye [effect], where your head is bigger than your body or your body’s bigger than your head. One foot is a size twelve and the other is a size four. It’s very artistic.”
“I mean, five years ago I would never let [a photographer] near up past my kneecap, you know? Who would go under my tutu? Nobody. I mean, nobody. My husband, that was it. But I was just like, ‘Alright, here we go!’”
On being called the new queen of fashion: “I never really like to see myself as the queen. I’m not playing queen, I don’t want to be the queen. I’m the boss,” she clarifies. “That’s different. I’m the mother, I’m the boss, I’m in charge of my decisions with my team. I try to make the best of myself, to accomplish something, to always put the bar as high as I can.”
On her love for fashion: “I seek clothes that make me feel sexy, approachable, fierce, edgy, glamorous, fun…I’m crazy about clothes. They help me to express myself, as if borrowing characters to help me perform… They’re like songs. I don’t do ballads all the time; I have up-tempo songs as well.”
CR Fashion Book issue 15 will be available alongside CR MEN Issue 9 on September 5, 2019.
