Celine Dion — the queen of music, high fashion and feelings — has been having, as she told the Sun in January 2019, "the best time of my life now" as she embraces her 50s. A large part of that has been because of the joy she's found dressing in haute couture, she explained: "I'm doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy." To celebrate the icon's birthday — she turned 53 on March 30, 2021 — Wonderwall.com is taking a look at some of the French Canadian diva's most stylish moments over the years… starting with this dreamy look. When she attended Alexandre Vauthier's Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week show in July 2019, Celine opted for an ivory bridal-style minidress by the designer that was complete with billowing floor-length sleeves.
