Shania Twain, cult look returns to the red carpet (but she’s not wearing it)

Long, white, sparkling: the legendary gown worn by the country star at the Grammys in 1999 this time dresses her young musical heir Kelsea Ballerini. The result is always wow effect.

A fitted dress with a slight train, low-cut and long-sleeved, white and studded with ton sur ton sequins: it was 1999 and Shania Twain triumphed at the Grammy Awards with You're Still The One. One legendary look among many legendary looks by the queen of country music that came alive again on the red carpet of the 15th Academy Of Country Music Honors, held in Nashville, home of this musical genre so beloved by Americans (and underrated elsewhere, let's face it). 

But this time to slip into the beautiful creation signed by fashion designer Marc Bouwer – who, we must admit, just doesn't feel the weight of his 23 years of life, on the contrary… – however, we don't find the legendary performer of That Don't Impress Me Much, but rather the young colleague Kelsea Ballerini. The result is still magnificent. 

The Heartfirst performer received the blessing of Shania – who was present at the event in total black and spotted cowgirl hat – and missed no opportunity to pay homage to her on stage, reinterpreting live the iconic video of Man! I Feel Like a Woman.

The iconic Shania Twain commented, "It's so exciting to see her in this dress, and also the very fact that she wanted to wear it. I just hope it wasn't too dusty after being at the Grammy Museum." Like Kim Kardashian in her Marilyn Monroe gown at the MET Ball last May, Kelsea in fact had to turn to a Museum-the one with the Grammy memorabilia-in order to wear the famous gown: she had only 48 hours, between fitting and red carpet, at her disposal. But despite the short time, everything ran smoothly.

A myth, that of Shania, which dominated for a good part of the 1990s and which, though alive, burns a little more faintly today than in the past. but which the time has come to dust off. Starting with her looks, iconic and – today we can say it – timeless.
