Lebanese designers suit Celine Dion

  • Dion’s Australia-New Zealand tour continues until Aug. 14

Days after wearing a suit designed by Rabih Kayrouz, Canadian pop superstar Celine Dion wore an Elie Saab suit in Sydney, doubling down on Lebanese designers.

The two-piece power suit featured a bold python print, which the songstress paired with sepia-tinged Balenciaga sunglasses, Jennifer Fisher earrings and neutral pumps from Saab.
“Sydney simply ROCKS!!....case closed! — Céline xxx...,” she captioned the image.
Dion recently kicked off her new headlining tour in Australia. She went viral days ago when she posed overlooking Bangkok’s skyline wearing a yellow suit from Maison Rabih Kayrouz.
While the outfit received the nod from fashion police, social media users quickly made it go viral and turned the Instagram post into an Internet meme.
Filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry provoked the Twitter frenzy when he jokingly asked his followers: “What’s the name of this mixtape?”
Celine Dijon,” replied one user. Another said: “Kodak yellow.”
A third added: “Beauty and the Beast Mode.”
One user drew comparisons between the Canadian singer and “Breaking Bad” character Walter White.
Dion’s love for Lebanese designed-outfits is well-known. 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. She has also worn a Reem Acra jumpsuit in Paris and jewelry by Sabine Getty in recent months.
The 50-year-old singer has emerged as a style icon recently, thanks to her stylist Law Roach.
Meanwhile, Dion’s second sold-out show at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday hit all the right notes.
Highlights include her first Australian No.1 hit, “The Power of Love,” her 1996 masterpiece, the Jim Steinman-penned mini-opera “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now,” and Dion’s cover of Eric Carmen’s 1975 soft rock staple “All By Myself.”
Dion’s Australia-New Zealand tour continues until Aug. 14.
Dion was recently in the news for featuring in a sequence where she was serenaded by Deadpool.
She penned the single “Ashes” for the soundtrack to “Deadpool 2,” which stars fellow Canadian Ryan Reynolds as the titular character.
The four-minute music video kicks off with Dion under a spotlight singing: “What’s left to say/ These prayers ain’t workin’ anymore/ Every word shot down in flames.”
Deadpool then joins her on stage and sashays in time to her powerful lyrics.
The video wraps up with Deadpool telling Dion the song is “the most beautiful performance I’ve ever seen in my life” before adding: “We need to do it again.”

Chiara Ferragni soaks up the sun in Oman

DUBAI: Italian fashion blogger and entrepreneur Chiara Ferragni took to Instagram to share snaps from her sunny holiday in Oman this week, giving her followers a good dose of travel inspiration in the process.

The influencer shared a selection of shots, including a visit to Muscat’s Grand Mosque — she covered her head with a black scarf while inside the mosque — a snap in which she can be seen smiling in front of a wall of pink bougainvillea and photographs taken in the 5-star resort where she is staying with her family.

Ferragni is staying at the swanky Alila Jabal Akhdar hotel along with her husband — Italian rapper Federico Leonardo Lucia, known by his stage name Fedez — and baby son, Leone.

The family is in town to celebrate Lucia’s birthday and Ferragni didn’t let the day go by without posting a sweet message on Instagram.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Happy 30th raviolito @fedez

A post shared by Chiara Ferragni (@chiaraferragni) on

“Happiest 30th birthday to my person, my soul mate and my best friend @fedez. I’m so proud of you, our relationship and everything we’ve built together in only three years. Thanks for making me the happiest mama and wife. Thanks for making my dreams come true. Thanks for understanding who I am and always support(ing) me. When I look at you, I can only think ‘he’s my person, I couldn’t have anybody else that makes me feel this way.’ You’re family and you’re home and you make me proud everyday,” she posted next to a photograph of the couple in Oman.

Having nabbed the number one spot on Forbes’ “Top Fashion Influencers” list in 2017, Ferragni is one of the world’s most recognizable social media stars and even launched her own namesake line, Chiara Ferragni Collection, in 2013. Since then, she has expanded into apparel, accessories and children’s clothing and reported revenues of $20 million in 2016, according to the Business of Fashion website.

Ferragni launched her blog, The Blonde Salad, in 2009 while attending Milan’s Bocconi University for a degree in law and went on to collaborate with an impressive clutch of design houses, including Dior, Louis Vuitton, Ermenegildo Zegna, Benetton and Mango.
