Queen of Las Vegas, the Grammys, the Brits, and stunning music videos (of course Adele had to float down a river drinking a glass of rosé in a floor-length Valentino green sequined ball gown for “I Drink Wine”), Adele is in a never-ending glamorous diva era after the success of her 4th album, 30.
Two years since the album’s release, and celebrating her 35th birthday today, we’re left wondering when her next release of lyrical life lessons will be – there’s speculation that a loved-up album is on its way sooner than we might think. What we know for sure, however, is that Adele never stops blessing us with all the style lessons we need in life.
Looking through Adele’s recent looks curated by celebrity stylist Jamie Mizrahi, and it’s clear she’s embraced the old Hollywood glam look for her Las Vegas residency and red-carpet appearances, with floor length sequins, velvet, tulle and lace all taking centre stage. Off stage, on courtside dates with boyfriend Rich Paul, she also serves looks, from double denim to leopard print coats. It was high time we took a look at some of her best fashion moments.
Up the Hollywood glam
While picking up her award for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Easy on Me” at the 2023 Grammys, Adele dressed up as she knows best – in a look that says old Hollywood glamour, with all the modern drama a music icon deserves. For her Las Vegas residency the glamorous theme’s continued, as she’s worn one stunning floor length gown after another, all in black with variations of off-the-shoulder or sweetheart necklines.
If you’re planning an outfit for a black-tie event, let Adele be your inspo. Here are 5 of my favourite Adele-inspired gowns on the high street:
Or style it out in luxe athleisure
“I saw Adele wearing a New Balance tracksuit and trainers, so I bought a New Balance tracksuit and trainers”.
Adele shows us that, yes, we can wear luxe athleisurewear and look chic. Supporting her boyf’s new brand which has partnered with New Balance, Adele’s matching set is only available to buy on the US New Balance website, but, for a look that’s just as sports luxe, here are my favourite sets available to buy in the UK:
Dare to double denim
Everyone’s loving denim for summer 2023, but Adele was ahead of the curve with her courtside double denim ensemble. Her pairing of an oversized denim shacket and straight-fit jeans makes for the perfect effortlessly thrown-together, low-key outfit.
For that slouchy oversized denim jacket look, here are my top picks:
Invest in classic coats
The cool girls will always return to leopard print, from Kate Moss to Bella Hadid, and now it’s Adele’s turn to make a strong case for the maxi leopard print coat. Trust me, they’ll be big news for autumn/winter 2023 so invest now.
Camel coats are a timeless must-have
In the last ever Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, Adele proved the never-ending chicness of a classic trench coat. Adele’s might be Louis Vuitton, but you can steal the look with classic trench coats from the high street.
Keep your cool in a vacay co-ord
Last year Adele’s Sardinian holiday wardrobe hit the headlines, as she stunned in an array of gorgeous outfits. The standout for me was her colourful printed co-ord. Replicate her vibe with one of these vibrant floaty sets from 4th + Reckless, Never Fully Dressed and Nobody’s Child.
