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.”

How Chrissy Teigan was inspired by her trips to Morocco

DUBAI: Social media darling, model and queen of sassy clap backs on Twitter, Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram late on Monday to show off her latest kitchenware product, which was inspired by a trip to Morocco.

The model has a cookware range with US retailer Target called the “Cravings by Chrissy Teigen” collection and she just launched the latest product — a mid-sized tagine.

“My new tagine is here!! This is just like a Dutch oven, so you can make stews (or chili — this is John’s recipe). They remind me of my trips to Morocco and look pretty cool in the kitchen,” Teigen posted alongside a video of her cooking chili in the tagine, referring to her husband John Legend.

Teigen last visited the North African country in January and took to social media to document her trip, including a relatable post about her love of Moroccan cuisine.

“Gained seven pounds in 2.5 days. Love you, Marrakech,” she posted on Twitter on Jan. 27 about her 3.2kg weight gain due to the country’s famously delicious treats.

Teigen was in Morocco to take part in a photoshoot for what she described as a “top secret project,” but the mother-of-two and TV show host took time out to enjoy the sights and sounds Marrakesh has to offer.

She explored Moroccan markets, went on a camel ride and indulged in local cuisine.

Morocco has become a playground for the world’s rich and famous, with plenty of international celebrities flocking to its history-steeped cities for high-end holidays.

In November, US model and actress Emily Ratajkowski shared snaps of her holiday in Morocco on social media.

The model was in Marrakech and seemed to have been taken in by the stunning souks and views the city has to offer.

Ratajkowski posted a photograph on Instagram where she is gazing out over the city’s rooftops, captioning it “Marrakech moonrise.”

In October 2018, Halle Berry shared from her stay in Morocco with her millions of Instagram followers, including one snap in which she rides a camel. The 52-year-old posted a string of photos of her time in the country, including a snap of a souk — which she captioned “Khamssas in the Souk” — and one in which she posed with a cat.
