As much as Adele (mom of one) tries to discredit herself as a style icon, she can’t deny the following she has. A quick trawl through Google will throw up tonnes of followers, crediting Adele as their style icon because she is is not teeny-tiny, and she refuses to apologise for it. Adele frequently speaks out on her refusal to diet and claims that anyone who has a problem with her shape can go ‘piss off’. Her ultimate fingers-up back in November, a bare-face front cover on Rolling Stone Magazine:
As soon as Adele tweeted the image, she was applauded for her ‘no make-up’ look and credited for being a ‘bare-faced beauty’. Of course, haters gonna hate and some were quick to point out the work that goes into a ‘no make-up’ look. However, that’s ok – Adele took to her own Instagram account to post two photos of herself ‘au natural’, no signature winged eyeliner, no filters (and she didn’t even feel the need add #wokeuplikethis – now that is class).
Unfortunately, despite her positivity, Adele has had to cope with lots of criticism concerning her body shape, even from her peers. Lady Gaga once famously said (in a “60 Minutes” interview) “I think Adele is really talented, but being fat will only get you so far. Sitting in a chair will get boring after the fourth video, you know? Maybe if she danced her ass off like I do in every video, she wouldn’t be as big as she is” and went right down in our estimation. However, the attack from Gaga (apt!) helped Adele shine more, as she refused to retaliate, stating: “I enjoy being me; I always have done. I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life” and we admire the hell out of that.
Not only does Adele talk the talk, she totally walks the walk by embracing her curves in a confident and inspiring way. The heart of Adele’s wardrobe is mastering timeless elegance of a mostly black wardrobe. It’s chic, it’s easy to coordinate or add accessories, and it creates optical illusions that can serve to make you feel more secure. Adele’s evening-wear game is strongest, rocking both maxi and tea dresses but always with a strong nod to a previous era, an era when curves were coveted.
The Black Dress
Adele favours black and it certainly loves her (she once famously said “I’m like Johnny Cash, I only wear black”). This dress adds waist definition and covers the arms (for anyone lacking the confidence to get them out). Best of all, as a statement it speaks for itself – no need to get fussy with accessories.

Lady In Red
This year we’ve seen Adele in more colour than she has ever worn throughout her entire career! And why not? Red certainly suits her and the low neckline gives her the opportunity to flaunt her best assets.

Tea Length In Teal
Probably the hardest look for us to replicate because there aren’t many substitutes for this Stella McCartney beauty. Adele’s is wonderfully chic because it comes with sleeves, not usually associated with a tea-length dress, but there is always the option to add a pashmina.

How cool is Adele’s dress down look? Rock girl all softened up by the LV scarf. She could have opted for flats but she went for heels because glamorous is just in her bones.

Adele breaks all the moulds when it comes to music and celebrity roles models. Despite her huge success, she has stayed true to herself and inspired countless others along the way.
