Epic. Celine Dion posed nude for Vogue in a casual shot posted on the magazine's Instagram. Dion, who is also launching a collection of accessories for Nordstrom later this year and who rocked the most wing-like sleeves at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, was snapped backstage in between costume changes.

The post's caption goes into depth about the singer's approach to "industrial couture," how her stage costumes are designed to function, her feelings on haute couture, and how her clothes must follow her, not the other way around. Ultimately, they are performing for her. It also references the Dior LBD, which forces you to put one foot in front of the other, that she wore to her husband's funeral.

It's 370 words that puts the viewer smack dab in the middle of Dion's perspective on fashion, as the singer, 49, sits sans any clothes, with her legs beautifully tangled and crossed, with her hand over her mouth, and a pair of glittery boots laying on their side, by her side.

It's such a simple and sexy photo. Nude photos of celebrities can have many skews, but this one is totally classic and utterly elegant. The execution and end result is likely due to the grace of the subject and it breaks the stereotype that only women of a certain age can be sexy or pose nude.

That's a breath-taking shot,  isn't it? And it's a powerful explanation of how she views clothes. Of course, the Internet was here for it. Below is a sampling of comments on this Insta photo.

Classy. Classic. Casual. And certainly cover-worthy. What strikes me most about this photo is how comfortable in her skin Dion is. There is something so peaceful and confident about her pose.
