The style momentum isn’t slowing down for Celine Dion! After stepping out with a new, fashion-forward look in Paris — a transformation she underwent with help Zendaya and Ariana Grande’s stylist (and new America’s Next Top Model judge) Law Roach — Dion is continuing her journey to becoming a full-on street-style star now that she’s back stateside.
In less than 24 hours in N.Y.C., she wore a sparkly silver mini (by Mikael D), a colorful matching outfit in primary hues (by Versace), a floral dress (by Delpozo) and more dazzling looks, with Roach by her side; though he was originally just supposed to team with her for her Paris jaunt, they’ve decided to continue working together.
We caught up with Roach at the Today show this morning, where he styled her in a silver sequin suit, white tee and black Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe booties for her live performance. “She likes everything,” he tells PeopleStyle. “She’ll wear anything. Like last night [on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon], she wore this super-tight, super-short bodycon dress. She has no restrictions and nothing that she likes or dislikes more than anything else. She’s fearless.”
When she performs — as she did in a black gown on Fallon or her high-wattage ensemble on Today — Roach keeps the requirements of a performer in mind. “Working with artists, certain things just have to be,” he says. “It can’t be too tight, they have to be able to breathe, they have to be able to expand their ribcage when they sing. She’s very animated when she sings and she needs to be free. So the performance looks are a bit more planned out for that reason.”
Dion clearly enjoyed her Today show sparkle, telling Entertainment Weekly, “My stylist gave me something very, very, very, subtle shiny — shine bright light a diamond,” she says. “It’s 6:00 [a.m.] even, and I’m in silver with bling bling bling bling blang blang blong. I was like, ‘Are you sure?’ I was like, ‘I don’t know!’ So if they didn’t see me out there, they will never see me.” [This has to be read in her voice, so catch the audio clip below to listen to her chat about her look!’

And the way they choose their looks is an organic (and sometimes very last minute!) process. “When I’m working with her, I’m with her,” he says. “I was with her everyday for the entire month in Paris. I was with her the entire day, as I’m with her today. For me, I can’t plan looks — I’m too emotional about fashion. She’ll come down and I’ll just do my thing, and I’ll show her some things and I’ll say let’s try this and she’ll say let’s try that, and that’s just the way it works.”
Or, as Dion would say, “that’s just the way it is.”
