The country music superstar shows off her creative fashion skills by turning a denim jacket into a minidress
Shania Twain is known for her iconic outfits, but her latest look has a special meaning behind it.
The country superstar, 58, shared a video on Instagram on Friday, telling viewers how she turned a fan gift into a tour outfit. While showing off her prized possession, she spun around for the camera, revealing a collection of patches sewn to a jacket — which she transformed into a dress.
“Now this denim jacket’s been Shania’d,” she said in the video, which played Twain’s classic, “I’m Gonna Getcha Good!” in the background, intercut with footage of her performing on stage. “But a fan did all the patchwork, the embroidery and everything on the denim jacket,” she added, displaying artwork labeled with her beloved songs, from “I’m Outta Here!” to “Not Impressed” — short for the 1998 hit, “That Don’t Impress Me Much."
Twain went on to say she “modified” the outfit, noting it’s now a “minidress” with a green skirt and stylish boots. “I turned the sleeves upside down,” she said. “I turned the jacket backwards, and these are Dolce boots that are also turned upside down.”
“So thank you very much to the fan that sent me the jacket,” she concluded, adding, “It inspired me to get glamorous” for her Queen of Me tour. She then told the crowd in attendance, "I guess you could say I Shania'd it."
In the video and caption, Twain showed that she created new outfits for each show using previously worn attire. She wore a long-sleeve pink shirt with polka dots, black sequin shorts and pink wig while putting on multiple necklaces, including one with a heart where she added black chiffon bows behind one hip and one shoulder for a “little asymmetrical pattern,” she said in the clip. Twain then walked over to a bundle of things and stated, “We’re putting our scraps to work!”

“Wanted to give you all a sneak peek at what happens before each show backstage!” the “Any Man of Mine” singer wrote alongside the video. “Some of you have already noticed, but I’m creating new looks for every night using outfits I’ve previously worn 💖”
She added, ”Some of these items have been over 10 years old!!”
Pushing back at remarks that she should dress more "appropriately" or that she's "not who you used to be," the music icon shared an Instagram photo carousel celebrating her adventurous style along with a caption.
She wrote in the post, "For me fashion is a powerful tool that helps to convey my personality and express my creativity and other than getting to hang out with my friends for the night, it's one of my favourite things about attending award shows! Life is too short to wear boring clothes!! 😘 Thank you to the team behind my @cmt #CMTAwards looks ❤️🔥"
