Not So Mellow Yellow: Celine Dion In Maison Rabih Kayrouz

8 Photos

The singer took fashion to new heights in a Gen-Z yellow power suit

Celine Dion is no stranger to a good pantsuit, in fact just a few weeks ago she was rocking a hot pink Sies Marjan suit. Then, on Monday, while on tour in Bangkok, Thailand, the Canadian singer outdid herself when she posted a photo to Instagram that shows her perched high above the Bangkok skyline wearing an electric yellow suit by Lebanese designer Maison Rabih Kayrouz. Never one to do things by halves, Dion accessorised the look with Prada shoes and sunglasses, as well as a forest green Chloe bag.

While the bright hue (also known as Gen-Z yellow) can look a little intimating, the truth is there’s plenty of ways to wear it without looking like Big Bird. The vibrant shade first made its appearance last September at New York fashion week, where everyone from Self-Portrait and Mansur Gavriel to Carolina Herrera and Prabal Gurung championed the sunny shade’s perennial appeal. But beyond ready-to-wear, the easiest way to incorporate the colour into your wardrobe is with accessories such as bags, hats, jewellery, phone cases and even yellow makeup.
