Celine Dion says she's building a fashion 'playground' originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
Celine Dion recently said she doesn't like being called the "Queen of Fashion," but it's hard to think of her as anything else -- she just made both People and Vanity Fair magazines' annual best dressed lists.
People calls Dion "The Designer Darling" who turns the streets of Paris into her own personal runway.
"I don’t think Céline is limited to any type of look ... she is able to capture so many styles and own them," said stylist Sydney Lopez in People.
"She can make a T-shirt and jeans look high fashion," said her other stylist, Pepe Muñoz.
Vanity Fair, meanwhile, praised Dion for her "fashion-mad, slightly gonzo embrace of 'extra.'"
She told the magazine that her favorite past fashion moment was that backwards white John Galliano pantsuit she wore to the Oscars in 1999.
She also revealed that, despite reports that she has 10,000 pairs of shoes, she's "not quite sure" just how many she has.
"But I’m building a new home in Las Vegas," she added. "I treated myself to a playground: two stories of archives for all my clothes, shoes, belts. I kept everything. So I’ll be able to count."
Dion certainly has come a long way from her childhood, where she was the youngest in a very large but not-very-well-off family.
"I have 13 siblings, and I was the last. I wore all their clothes," she told Vanity Fair. "My mom didn’t have money to buy it, so she made the clothes."
However, it seems she did inherit her mom's sense of style.
"She was very sensitive to the cut of the moment, if the pants were wide or narrow," Dion recalled. "She was paying attention."
