The 51-year-old five-time Grammy winner arrived at the 2019 Met Gala in all her “Camp: Notes on Fashion” glory in an ensemble only she could pull off. It was custom Oscar de la Renta couture with equal elements of Cher, Vegas showgirl and a pearlescent peacock. Needless to say, the elevated bodysuit was a true sight to behold, as is any outfit Dion wears. That’s just who she is.
Dion’s Fernando Garcia–designed number took 52 workers 3,000 hours to create, according to The New York Times, and was inspired by Judy Garland’s costume in the 1914 film Ziegfeld Girl. A more recent zeitgeist comparison is Cher’s 1986 Oscars headdress. Either way, it was a look and a half.
