Leave it to the Queen of Couture to slay the Met Gala pink carpet.
Celine Dion’s love of couture fashion week has paid off as the singer stepped out in an Oscar de la Renta gown for this year’s theme of “Camp: Notes On Fashion”.
The show girlesque outfit was inspired by Judy Garland and the costumes of the Ziegfeld Follies.
The dress is made from 18 panels and took 52 master embroiderers over 3,000 hours to create the 22-pound dress.
The Canadian singer told E! she didn’t understand the theme of Camp: “I was ready to camp and sleep all night. They said, ‘Girl, you don’t know what camp is. Oscar de la Renta’s going to show you.’”
She also revealed to Vogue, “Everybody who was part of it put their hearts into it. It was to make it something magical. I don’t want to take it off! I want to go to bed in it tonight.”
