Céline Dion is on a roll in Paris. A fashion roll, that is.
Last week, the iconic performer was spotted out and about in the City of Light rocking a pink monochromatic look complete with impressive sky-high pink Casedi pumps, and now she’s sporting Kanye West x Giuseppe Zanotti from their spring ’12 collaboration.
On Sunday, the 49-year-old pop star was photographed leaving Hotel Royal Monceau in Paris wearing loose-fitting faux leather Givenchy overalls over a chiffon white blouse, paired with cream pearl-embroidered sandals from West and Zanotti’s collab and sparkling diamanté statement sunglasses.
As always, the legendary star makes bold fashion choices appear effortless, so stay tuned for her fall ’17 collection for Nordstrom come August.
I meet with Giuseppe inside his Milan showroom, located on the Italian fashion capital’s premier high-end shopping street Via Monte Napoleone.Zanotti designed his first set in 1994, that was released the following year. Though he’s among world’s most admired shoe designers today, the former radio DJ had to fight for 7 decades before finding his path in vogue. “My passion for music started around age 14, when I began playing guitar. From the time I turned 17 I started working for a regional independent radio station as a DJ. They allowed me to play with the sort of music that didn’t exist in Italy at the moment. I would play spirit music and jazz-funk, like the Detroit Emeralds, Weather Report, Hamilton Bohannon and needless to say the Jackson 5. These songs were like UFOs in Italy during the 70s (laughs),” the programmer tells me regarding his very first passion.Unfortunately, independent radio did not really pay the bills, and mom and dad weren’t inclined to financially support him. “I loved that job, but it was something that you needed to do for free. My family was very upset, since from the age of 17 until 24 they needed to support me financially. My father thought of me as a loser, ’cause I was not getting paid for 7 decades.” What directed the 24-year-old radio man to the world fashion, you inquire? The identical thing that led him to radio: songs. For an avid collector of LP records – which he would acquire via London’s black market circuit – Zanotti was infatuated from the design of Jimi Hendrix and soul artists from Philadelphia, which he would spot on stated LP covers.
Dion, who’s been working with stylist Law Roach, is set to perform 10 concerts in France, including in Paris, and she has more shows in the U.K. as well as Germany and Switzerland as part of her European tour.
