Céline Dion Shows You Can Wear "Young, Cool Clothes" at Any Age

One could argue that the media landscape has been obsessed with youth since day dot. Even today, when diversity is on the up, it's not unusual to hear about brands chasing teenage YouTube stars or celebrity offspring with a six-figure Instagram following rather than women over the age of 25 with an actual disposable income.

Perhaps that's why the images of Céline Dion, aged 50, lying across the front of her car bonnet in head-to-toe Dior or wearing crystal-embellished £6000 Saint Laurent boots are so brilliant. Women are encouraged to carve a supposedly age-appropriate, different signature style by the time they reach their 30s, but Céline shows that you can have a Rihanna-like approach to getting dressed at any point in your life. Her stylist, Law Roach, who has been credited with turning her into a fashion icon over the past few years believes that's why her style is being so celebrated right now.

"What's really refreshing is everybody is so obsessed with the millennial, and to have her come out and attract as much, if not more, attention for fashion than these people that designers are obsessed with—it's changing the dynamics of who the designers are targeting," Law tells Who What Wear UK. "Because she is proof that a woman of her age can wear these clothes and be cool and sell these clothes just like these young girls. And the bigger difference is that she actually buys the clothes."
