OFFSTAGE: Shania Twain, Her Catsuit and Her Catsuit-Ready Body

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Usually when a star has on some super-glamorous stage clothes, I’m jealous. And I wish I had the same clothes. This time, I’m jealous — not really of Shania Twain’s clothes but of her body. I wish I had a body that would look that good in a catsuit that tight. I mean, look at her in this glittery, sheer and very skintight neck-to-toe Marc Bouwer catsuit . It’s what Twain wore to kick off her string of Las Vegas shows at Caesars Palace this past weekend. Whenever I do any kind of fashion breakdown story, I always try to find out where to get the looks and how much they cost. But this time, honestly, what good would it do? Even if I could afford it, who else could possibly look that good in it? Twain told reporters she’s never had a show this exciting before. “I was a bit worried that we were staying in the same place,” she said. “Was I going to lose that edge?” I think it’s safe to say that as long as she keeps dressing like this, she’ll never lose her edge.
