La cantante canadiense Celine Dion dejó temporalmente el Coliseo del Hotel Caesars Palace de Las Vegas, para llevar su tour a Francia. Su gira por la capital gala justo ha coincidido con la semana de la alta costura y la diva canadiense ha protagonizado una serie de fotos en Instagram bajo el título de #CelineTakesCouture (Celine toma la Alta Costura, en castellano). Las imágenes han sido compartidas en el perfil de Vogue, la biblia de la moda, y una de ella ha causado más revuelo. Sentada, completamente desnuda, con las piernas cruzadas, Dion a sus 49 años se ha dejado retratar por la editora de medios de Vogue Sophia Li.

“Aquí hay un desnudo para reflexionar, mientras Celine Dion se cambia entre espectáculos”, comienza el post compartido por la revista que tiene más de 118.000 "me gusta". En él, además, la publicación cuenta cómo elige la intérprete sus vestidos. "Las casas envían sus propuestas al hogar de Dion en Nevada. Antes de que las prendas estén terminadas, se afinan los últimos detalles en su taller privado. Armani Prive, Schiaparelli, Giambattista Valli, Versace ... son solo algunos de los diseñadores que la visten". Vogue también resalta que en los últimos cinco años, la cantante ha usado vestidos y trajes haute couture en todos sus shows, sin excepción alguna.

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.

Uno de los secretos revelados en este post, es que todos los trajes que las grandes firmas realizan para Dion deben llevar velcro. Esto según explican, permite que cambiarse sea rápido y además deja que su caja torácica se expanda lo necesario.

"Tenemos que hacer que la alta costura sea industrial", dice la canadiense. Y añade: "La ropa me sigue, yo no sigo la ropa". Es decir: que las firmas de lujo tienen que crearle piezas que se adapten a sus necesidades pues ella no será quien cambié para lucir una pieza.

En las otras imágenes de la serie Celine Dion se deja ver saliendo de un coche, saludando a los paparazis en el Petit Palais, en uno de los balcones de Place Vendôme, en otra rodeada de zapatos de tacón y bolsos de lujo, y la última es una instantánea de ella minutos antes de que comience su show en AccorHotels Arena en Bercy.

In the minutes before her show at the AccorHotels Arena at Bercy, Celine Dion is presented with an award by the French division of Sony for her 2016 francophone release Encore un soir. Dion thanks the clutch of executives assembled avec champagne and macaroons in the green room (hell, this is Paris after all) and reminds them quietly that this award means even so much more because the recording was her first without Rene and made during the most raw and difficult of times. Now it is a "diamond," meaning it has sold over 500k in France. Actually it has sold over 800k, and this is at a time when, hello, NO ONE BUYS RECORDS ANYMORE. Except for people in France who adore Celine, that is, nearly 20k of which are soon singing along—every lyric, every song—to their beloved diva. For a stadium show it is an extremely personal affair—everyone cries!—and never more so than when Dion's three sons make an appearance, via projection, during her cover of Michael Jackson's Black or White. Rene-Charles, aged 16, raps the King of Pop's spoken word bits, and when he is finished the twins, Nelson and Eddy, make a smiling cameo. Her children are not in the business--"I am not that kind of mother"--but they travel with her on tour and share some of her passions. Rene-Charles loves music and shoes ("the apple did not fall far from the tree") and, like her, habitually over-packs. On this tour he has brought 70 pairs of sneakers. The 6-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy love to dress up, as kids do, and recently asked to have their hair cut and styled like James Brown. Yes, that James Brown. Tres difficile! Fun fact: It was Nelson and Eddy's love of Disney-era Zendaya that made Celine aware of the stylish teen star. She then clocked Z's picture on the red carpet and in magazines. So she googled "who is Zendaya's stylist," as one does, and found Law Roach. Yes, that actually happened. #CelineTakesCouture Photographed by @denisetruscello
