Selena Gomez Fangirls Over Celine Dion

The person who's been causing the most commotion at the biannual couture shows this week in Paris is not a 21-year-old ingenue or a fashion blogger. She's a 48-year-old, sternum-thumping musical icon who's not too cool to throw a double thumbs-up in the front row. Yes, Celine Dion has taken on couture, and couture will never be the same.
