Celine Dion

by

Literally everyone in the audience of Valentino's revolutionary Paris Fashion Week haute couture show bawled like a baby.

For one, the iconic supermodel who has been slaying the game for three decades returned to the iconic house of fashion after FOURTEEN YEARS to close the show- Her Royal Highness Naomi Campbell.

Celine Dion is moved to tears by haute couture relatively often, she's an appreciator of art. However, this show moved both Dion and Campbell to tears for it's celebration of black beauty.

Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli designed the stunning collection, which saw each model inspired by a beautiful flower, and featured bold and bright colours, diversity and petal eyelashes.

Celine Dion is an ebullient presence at every fashion week she attends, giving thumbs up to paparazzi when she's impressed and occasionally jumping for joy.

She couldn't help the tears from falling watching Piccioli's work, modelled by women of every ethnicity, but when Naomi walked down the catwalk in a sheer black dress, Dion WEPT.

It was one of couture's most diverse line-ups ever, with 39 black women walking. Picciolo said of his collection;

“Couture is the way that you can evaluate the uniqueness of life, but it was never meant to be for black women. It was meant for just white women. This is a celebration of black beauty.” 

Campbell wept silently as Picciolo was given a standing ovation at the finale, she has witnessed the inherent racism in the industry since she began.

The iconic supermodel broke down barriers, and was one of the first black women on the covers of high fashion magazines and on their runways.

The billowing gowns were modelled by Alek Wek, Liya Kebede, Adut Akech, Duckie Thot, Akiima, Sabah Koj and Ayak Veronica, among other powerful, high fashion faces.

The soundtrack was soul icon Roberta Flack’s The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face, which matched the emotional ambience perfectly.

The subversion of the racial norm was clearly hugely important to Naomi Campbell, who praised the designer on her Instagram;

“Congratulations on a historical moment, done in such an elegant manner no words needed to be said. Blessed to be part of such an incredible, spellbinding moment.”

Paris fashion week has one of the worst records when it comes to casting diverse models.

Data gathered by The Fashion Spot revealed that just 15.6 percent of models in the Spring 2015 shows were women of colour, making Paris the least inclusive of any fashion week.

It's easy to see why both Celine and Naomi were overcome with emotion, given the immense occasion.

Two of the music industry's biggest voices could be teaming up for an unforgettable duet.

Lady Gaga and Celine Dion may be at different points in their careers, but that hasn't stopped Celine from expressing her desire to team up with the Born This Way singer when she begins her Las Vegas residency later this year.

Speaking during CNN's New Year's Eve Live, the 49-year-old singer admitted she was a huge Gaga fan and her response when asked if she would ever consider duetting with her was a definite yes.

“Oh don’t get me started now. I would love that. I love her so much. I can’t wait. Come on, Lady Gaga, we’re waiting for you!”

With a current residency at Las Vegas's Caesars Palace hotel and a wealth of experience in the city that never sleeps, you'd expect the My Heart Will Go On hitmaker to be full of helpful tips for Gaga's latest career move.

However, Celine doesn't believe she has any advice to offer, saying that the star already knows what she's doing.

“Do I have advice for Lady Gaga? No! First of all, this girl knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what to do. And I will never, ever, ever, in my whole life tell somebody professional, super talented like she is how to do things. I’m going to go see her show. When is she starting?”

Speaking about her upcoming Las Vegas shows, Lady Gaga revealed it was “a life-long dream,” adding that she was “humbled to be a part of a historical line-up of performers, and to have the honour of creating a new show unlike anything Vegas has ever seen before.”

We would give anything to see these two fierce females join forces!

Nick Janevski was dying to pop to question to his long-term love Austin Miller, who is a massive Celine Dion fan.

Taking the opportunity when they managed to wangle a meet-and-greet, Nick got down on one knee as Celine looked on, much to the surprise of both ladies.

“I didn’t even say yes… for like two whole minutes I was just shocked. I just looked at Celine Dion and then we both looked at him … I just kissed him" his shocked fiance told Buzzfeed News.

"@celinedion is about the only person I wouldn't mind photobombing the pictures of our proposal," she captioned a shot of the moment on Instagram. 

Celine clearly could not contain her reaction, looking shocked and delighted in the background as the couple embraced. 

“I hope you have a long and happy marriage, just like I did with my husband,” Dion told the duo, in a touching blessing. 

This is definitely a contender for best proposal of the year.

A lesson in how to be a Celine Dion superfan, by Selena Gomez…

Celine Dion took to the stage at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas on Saturday night – for the final time until mid-May – and one other famous singer was there to cheer her on.

Selena headed along to the show at Caesar's Colosseum, and couldn't help but get caught up in the pre-show buzz, documenting the whole thing in full via Snapchat.

First things first, she bought the obligatory overpriced merch:

Then she took a few group shots of herself and her pals:

There was the classic blurry stage photo with aaaalll the emojis:

And one of Selena getting weepy in the audience as she watched her idol:

So far, so normal.

Except, unlike other Celine fans, Selena actually got to hang out with the world-famous singer after her show. For which she ditched the t-shirt, sadly:

Amazing. It's been an emotional few months for Celine, whose husband of 22 years René Angélil lost his battle with cancer back in January.

The musical legend took a hiatus from her Las Vegas residency before returning for a bittersweet first show back at the end of February, which included a gorgeous video tribute to her late husband.

"I might not hear his voice yet, but I talk to him, I think of him all the time," she told the crowd.

"I feel and I know he hears me, one way or another."

Daniel passed away in the early hours of yesterday morning after a battle of throat, lung and brain cancer. He was only 59.

Daniel was one of Celine's 13 siblings. Their sister, Claudette, told Le Journal de Montréal that he was surrounded by family, friends and loved ones, including their mother, during his final hours.

Rene Angélil, the husband of Canadian singer Celine Dion, 47, passed away last night following a lengthy battle with throat cancer. 

The family confirmed the passing of Rene at their Las Vegas home at the age of 73. 

"René Angélil passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer," said a rep for the family on Thursday. 

"The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment; more details will be provided at a later time."

The couple married in 1994 after Celine met the singer when she was just 12-years-old. 

He quickly became her mentor and manager before the relationship became romantic in 1987. 

The pair have three children together, two twin boys aged 5 and a 14-year-old son. Rene also has three children from previous relationships. 

The pair celebrated their twenty-first wedding anniversary just last month.

This is truly heart-breaking. Celine Dion has said in an interview that her husband's dying wish is to die in her arms. 

Celine's 73-year-old husband René Angélil is currently battling throat cancer and his last wish is to be in his wife's arms when he dies. 

Speaking about their conversation Celine said: "And René says to me, "I want to die in your arms." OK, fine, I'll be there, you'll die in my arms."

Although he is extremely sick, Celine is returning to Las Vegas for her residency at the end of August. 

The couple have been married since 1994 and have three children together, Nelson, Eddy and René-Charles.

She added to USA Today: 'Don't forget, he's been the leader of the band all my life. So it [hacks] him off to not see me all day and over here working. But he wants me to do this, do the show, do the interviews. But he freaks when I'm not home with him, too …'

'I didn't want to be here at first, I don't need it. Don't get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities. But René really gave me a gift.'

She explained: 'All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I've got this. For now.'

'When it hits me, it's going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we're fine. I'll take care of our kids. You'll watch us from another spot.'

She is one of the most successful music stars in the world right now, but it would appear that Ariana Grande has another talent up her sleeve – impressions.

The Problem singer was appearing on The Tonight Show last night when she was challenged by show host Jimmy Fallon to give her best Celine Dion impersonation.

Rising to the challenge, the 21-year-old proceeded to give an uncanny – and hilarious – impression of the legendary diva.

Indeed, she had Jimmy and the audience in stitches as she perfected Celine's beloved nasal tone, with our favourite moment coming when she turns to the audience and says: "Shall we go for it?"

Ariana, we have even more love for you after this!

Some songs should be avoided for about two months after a break-up.

They will make you sad and probably make you cry too.

Best not to be reminded. Always pack earphones in case they play in public too. Ugly cry in public? No thanks.

1. Adele ‘Someone like you’
Even Adele cried singing this at the Brit Awards and she wrote it. Rough stuff.

2. Jeff Buckley ‘Last Goodbye’
Oh, the pain in his beautiful voice.

3. Eric Carmen ‘All by Myself’
Do you want to be as low as Bridget Jones was when she sang this? No, no you don’t.

4. U2 ‘With or Without You’
Ross and Rachel’s break-up song. Enough said.

5. Anything by Celine Dion
Seriously.
