Shania Twain has often made last-minute alterations to her red carpet outfits.
In a new video for Vogue titled Life in Looks, the Canadian singer-songwriter reflected on some of her most iconic looks from the past two decades, and in particular, paid special attention to the one-shoulder black gown she chose to wear to the first annual VH1 Divas concert in 1998.
However, Shania divulged that she took a needle and thread and stitched up the thigh-high slit shortly before heading to the event.
“I’m very self-conscious at this point about my leg,” she recalled. “It was an open slit, right up, almost to the hip, and I just couldn’t wear it like that. So, I tacked the slit open and I think it looks kinda cool. Looks deliberate. I do tend to take things into my own hands. Make sure I’m comfortable. So, when I work with designers they have to be open to that.”
Over the years, Shania has tried to re-wear or repurpose clothes too. For instance, the star opted to don the same crushed velvet dress she wore in the video for From This Moment On to the 1998 Billboard Music Awards.
“The sheer veil, drape at the back, high-neck. It’s a very similar dress to the one of wore in From This Moment On video. I think it might be the dress,” the 54-year-old clarified.
Elsewhere in the chat, Shania spoke about her longtime love of animal print and pleather trousers. Yet, it wasn’t until the Grammy Awards in 1999 that she felt it was time to start experimenting with sequins and rhinestones.
“This is really where I get excited about being shiny,” Shania said of the white long-sleeve gown she selected for the night. “Country music artists when I was a kid were always really glitzy and shiny and I thought, ‘Well, I want to be more sober than that in my style.’ But once I got into sequins, that was it. Never turned back.”

Shania Twain is adamant attempts to slow down the ageing process are a waste of time.
The Man! I Feel Like a Woman! hitmaker, who is currently in the midst of her Let’s Go! residency show in Las Vegas, admitted during the latest instalment of the LadyGang podcast that she’s too busy to be sitting around and contemplating what it means to be getting older.
“For me personally, I’m sure it’s very different for everybody, but I just started with time,” she said. “Stepping out of battles that I couldn’t win. I mean, you know, ageing is a battle you can’t win. That battle and the focus and energy it takes, is taking up too much space! In my life, my emotional state, my mental state… I’ve got songs to write. I’m not gonna sit around.”
Shania, who released a new record, Now, in 2017, went on to insist her music is her top priority.
“I’d rather dream about songs or dream about other things I want to do in my life, and I want to just daydream. I want to fantasise and enjoy what I do have and just, like, forget about the stuff I can’t change, or that I can’t have,” the 54-year-old commented. “So, I think it’s a waste of time and energy to worry about trying to slow my ageing process down. I’m just going to be healthy, and I’m so much more accepting of the way I look, with or without clothes.”
Elsewhere in the chat, Shania also shared how thrilled she was to be included in the cast of I Still Believe, an upcoming romantic drama in which she plays the mother of KJ Apa’s musician character.
“I was just too busy before. I’ve always found the idea of acting something that I would’ve liked to have done much earlier on, and I was sent scripts and stuff, but I was just so busy wearing so many hats,” she added.
