In 2011, Dion's second residency, "Celine," opened, which drew 4.5 million fans.

Dion also entered a contract with L'Oreal Paris for the brand's Excellence Hair Color, her first-ever beauty contract.
In 2018 she launched Célinununu. In collaboration with Nununu, Célinununu is a gender-neutral childrenswear line that "liberates children from the traditional roles of boy/girl..."
