These days, Celine Dion is considered a modern fashion icon, with her newfound penchant for edgy labels like Off-White and Vetements. But she was always a fashion risk-taker; after all, who can forget that backless white suit and matching fedora she wore to the Oscars in 1999? Thanks to her vivacious career, Dion has landed herself on red carpet events since the ‘80s and has had more than a few looks that are still referenced in fashion circles today. Few embody what it means to be a star quite like Dion, who seems to make a statement with her fashion choices as often as she does with her emotional songs. From the start, the Canadian singer's signature quickly became sparkle and shine, wowing crowds with less than subtle low necklines and thigh-high slits in her skirt. Even when opting for gowns with less obvious drip-drip, as the kids would say these days, Dion always makes sure to add some element of over the top flair. So while Dion has had something of a fashion renaissance thanks to new stylist Law Roach, here's evidence that she was always a style icon. Here, on Dion's 51st birthday, take a look back at her best fashion moments over the decades.
