Céline Dion Joins Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing for a Night at the Opera

PARIS – Olivier Rousteing has added another mega-star to his roster of celebrity fans: Céline Dion.
The Canadian singer, accompanied by her stylist Law Roach, was among the Balmain designer’s guests at the Paris Opera on Tuesday night for the premiere of “Renaissance,” a ballet by dancer and choreographer Sébastien Bertaud featuring costumes by the French fashion house.
“It’s my first time at the opera,” confessed Dion. “I have never had the time or taken the time. I’m in Paris for three days, I have 83 concerts [worldwide], so I’m very busy unfortunately – but tonight was the right night.”
Though it was the first time she had met Rousteing, whose gang of famous friends includes Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, Dion is no stranger to the Balmain brand. “I am a huge, huge fan. I have enormous respect for their talent. I’ve been wearing the label for a long time. It helps me a lot to interpret my repertoire as best I can,” she added.
The performer, dressed in a high-necked black jumpsuit dotted with metallic studs and a black tuxedo coat from Balmain’s pre-fall collection, did not have time to expound on the launch of her own accessories line at Nordstrom in August.
