Celine Dion is running this fashion game.
The five-time Grammy-winning Canadian singer is quickly establishing herself as a fashion icon. Dion, 51, is the cover star of CR Fashion Book‘s edgy new September issue.
Dion tells the publication she doesn’t see herself as the “new queen of fashion.” In fact, “I never really like to see myself as the queen. I’m not playing queen, I don’t want to be the queen,” she says. “I’m the boss.”
“That’s different. I’m the mother, I’m the boss, I’m in charge of my decisions with my team,” she elaborates. “I try to make the best of myself, to accomplish something, to always put the bar as high as I can.”
The “I’m Alive” singer loves the entire process of modelling.
“I honestly love photoshoots,” Dion says. “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 12 and the other is a size 4. It’s very artistic.”
“I’m crazy about clothes,” she adds. “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. So I don’t want to wear gowns on stage all the time. Sometimes I want to be a little bit more edgy.”
The September issue of CR Fashion Book hits newsstands on September 5.
