Celine Dion shines bright in Maison Rabih Kayrouz

  • Dion is currently on the Asian leg of her world tour
  • Her world tour — which has taken the “My Heart Will Go On” singer to Taipei, Manila and Jakarta — is set to wrap up in Las Vegas in January

DUBAI: Canadian pop superstar Celine Dion took fashion to new heights this week when she posed overlooking Bangkok’s skyline wearing a canary-yellow two-piece by Lebanese fashion house Maison Rabih Kayrouz.

Dion, who is currently on the Asian leg of her world tour, pulled a power pose in her sharp outfit, which was accessorized with Prada shoes and sunglasses, as well as a Chloe bag.

“Beautiful Bangkok...unforgettable,” Dion captioned the image.

Meanwhile, the fashion house reposted the image, captioning it: “Legendary @celinedion wearing @maisonrabihkayrouz in Bangkok.”

Dion’s world tour — which has taken the “My Heart Will Go On” singer to Taipei, Manila and Jakarta — is set to wrap up in Las Vegas in January.

The set of gigs in Las Vegas will mark the legend’s return to a city which she has dominated since 2011 with her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Dion is known for showing off Lebanese designed-outfits on stage — she wore a mermaid-inspired dress by Zuhair Murad at the  2017 Grammy Awards and wore a cobalt blue Elie Saab gown at a Bee Gees tribute concert last year.

Dion lost her husband René Angélil in 2016, after a long battle with cancer.

The Canadian entertainment manager, who discovered Dion when she was 12-years-old and drove her career to stardom, married her in 1994 at a lavish wedding in Montreal’s Notre Dame Basilica.

The couple have three sons, René-Charles, 14, and five-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy.

Angélil first met the French-Canadian singer when she was 12 after she sent him a recorded song she had written with her mother.

He agreed to manage Dion in exchange for full control over her career and was said to have mortgaged his home to finance her first album.

When Dion was 18, Angélil instructed the French-speaking singer to remake her image by changing her hair and capping her teeth and enroll in English school so she could record songs for the US market.

Their marriage was initially opposed by Dion’s mother, not only because of their 26-year age gap but because Angélil had three children from two previous unions, the singer told media in 2013.

 “I have to say that for my mom he was not the prince charming — the ideal prince charming. It was very difficult,” Dion told Access Hollywood.com in 2013.
