Céline Dion, whom you may know from her bedazzled catsuit look, or from the Titanic theme, has got herself a pair of very versatile pants. Just look at them, being spacious and slender at the same time. One side for channeling Diane Keaton, or sitting in relative comfort during a long airplane ride; one side for showcasing a going-out top. These pants are a mash-up! These pants challenge the very idea of what pants should, could, be. And damn, these pants can multi-task.
The jeans, as you may already be aware, come from Ksenia Schnaider, a Kiev-based designer famed for her playfully deconstructed demi-denim — recall Bella Hadid’s jean-shorts-over-jeans look — innovations. Headed for the Cité du Cinéma, Dion paired Schnaider’s skinny-slouchy hybrid pant with a pink feathered ostrich top and fluffy stiletto sandals in a similar hue, a choice I personally did not expect but certainly applaud.
In 2017, winding down the Summer of Céline, Dion’s stylist — Law Roach — told the Cut that the singer’s style ranges between “over-the-top Madame” and “jeans and a T-shirt.” (“That’s Céline off-duty.”) I don’t know about you but I think we’ve found the perfect compromise between those two poles, an ensemble that’s equal parts whimsical and on-trend, and we owe it all to these pants, which can do both. Actually, much like Dion herself, these pants do it all.
