Celine Dion credits stylist with upbeat new outlook and look

Celine Dion has credited her new stylist Law Roach with brightening up her look following her husband's death.

The singer made her first appearance at Paris Haute Couture Week in France since 2007 on Tuesday (05Jul16) and debuted a new chic look she credited to Roach.

"Working with Law Roach is quite an experience to be honest with you," she tells TV news show Entertainment Tonight.

"He brought me out of my closet and now flowers are growing. Even my kids are like, 'We want a bow like this, we want a dress like this' - even if they're boys. They're into fashion, they're into characters, everything they say they like, whether it's for a girl or a boy, they want it."

Roach, who has also styled teen star Zendaya, Ariana Grande, and Ruby Rose, has been a godsend to Celine, whose manager husband Rene Angelil lost his battle with cancer earlier this year (Jan16).

"He brings me the best of what the fashion industry can bring us," the music star smiles.

"I have to say that, coming here after the passing of my husband after not even six months (later), it could have been way easy for me to say, 'You know what, I'm not in the mood of dressing up and having the purse and seeing the fans and having a good time and singing, giving a part of your soul (sic)'.

"But knowing that he (Angelil) loved the industry so much - he made me who I am today since (I was) 12 years old - I went back on stage before he passed, he wanted me to really be the artist I always wanted to be, and I knew that for a long time."

And her fans have really helped Celine get through the lows of the past several months: "They are so considerate for my happiness and my sadness, my good and bad moments, and they are (always) supporting me," she told the outlet. "The fans are supporting not only my music, but who I am. I've been criticised for being an open book for so long, but it's paying off today because they know me well."
