On her Facebook account, the star wrote: “Alber Elbaz was an extremely kind and warm man, in addition to being a designer who made us shine with his incredible talent. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. – Celine xx…” The Quebec diva, who became a fashion icon in recent years with the help of her stylists Law Roach and then Pepe Munoz, had already had the opportunity to wear creations from Lanvin, during the time when Alber Elbaz was the artistic director; he had slammed the door in 2015.
Celine Dion wore a dress from the French brand on stage at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, back when she was a permanent resident. The interpreter of My Heart Will Go On had also worn a dress signed Lanvin for the advertising campaign of one of her own perfumes, Chic.
