In 2019, the Met Gala’s theme–titled “Camp: Notes on Fashion”–encouraged designers to experiment with the unnatural and exaggerated. None did this more than Oscar de la Renta, who designed the dress for Céline Dion. Magazines called it her “showgirl look.”

The silver gown was more a bodysuit that had tassles draping down Dion’s arms and legs. A slit down one of her legs added some figure and dimension to it. On her head, Dion wore a 22-pound feathered headpiece, also made by de la Renta. She was an elevated version of a ’20s flapper.
