From the InStyle Archives: Céline Dion Reveals What Makes Her Feel Sexy
Happy birthday, Céline Dion! The five-time Grammy-winning artist rings in her 47th birthday today. With a career boasting countless chart-topping singles, a mega-successful Vegas show in which she headlines, the performer has cemented her icon status in music history. But it's not just her awe-inspiring voice that leaves us wanting more, it's also her signature style.
With a fashion oeuvre that includes form-fitting dresses, pumps, and statement-making outfits on the red carpet, it's no surprise that Dion does not consider comfort a necessity when dreaming up an outfit. "Naked is very comfortable," Dion told InStyle back in 1997. "But my mother told me that when you think of comfort, you're getting old. Believe me, stilettos, push-up bras and tight skirts are not comfy. They make you think differently." She points out that when she wears flat shoes, she feels like a businesswoman. "But if I'm in heels with a tight twinset and my hair up, I mean, I'm going to walk faster. They make me feel sexy."
