They tend to win. And if you ask us, they’re doing so in more ways than one.

Since Hedi Slimane’s debut collection for Celine, the designer’s take on the French fashion brand has received mixed reviews to say the least. But Slimane must be doing something right, and not just on the runway, especially if you’ve been following this awards season closely.

Just this past Sunday, Slimane dressed three household names for both the BAFTAs and the Grammys. Bradley Cooper, who’s undoubtedly been one of the biggest stars to watch this awards season, showed up to the London event in Celine, wearing a classic black tuxedo, bow tie and white shirt. Cooper was nominated for a total of five BAFTAs, taking home the award for Original Music, the accolade he shares with his A Star Is Born co-star Lady Gaga and producer/songwriter Mark Ronson.

That same night in Los Angeles, Gaga and Ronson were also decked in Celine, with Ronson making quite the fashion statement in a double-breasted jacket in white (with the lapels in black), which he paired with a black shirt and trousers, and a white tie. The leather shoes, also by Slimane, were a perfect pair, too. It’s a look that could easily have gone wrong, but Ronson’s risks always tend to pay off.

Gaga, never to be outshone, had social media buzzing as she made her way onto the red carpet – and later the stage – in an entirely silver sequins and pearl embroidered dress. Gaga would walk away with three Grammys that night, including the Best Pop Solo Performance award for her song, ‘Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)’ from her fifth studio album, and two more – both for the A Star Is Born song ‘Shallow’ – and incidentally, one she shares with Cooper and the other with Ronson, the latter who also took home a separate Grammy for a song he produced for Silk City and Dua Lipa.

Still with us? Done counting the awards yet? Call it coincidence, but the point is that Slimane definitely knows what he’s doing, carefully dressing the right celebrities for the right award shows at the right time. What’s a bigger power move than sending a clear, cohesive message consisting of three Celine-clad celebrities dominating two of the entertainment industry's most prestigious awards ceremonies – and on the same night?

Oh, and Gaga would go on to wear a second look by Celine for the after party, of course, though opting for a more casual look: a squared T-shirt topped off with the house's “Bibi” hat.

We see you, Slimane. And we're here for it.
