Adele Adkins. She’s a maverick woman about town, a well of endless beauty across the realms of the visceral and ephemeral, and a force to be reckoned with. Possessed equally of polish and punch, it’s easy to see why the world at large is contentedly doting on our latest crush. She has a voice like a lark and a classically lovely face, but I’ll confess that what has me personally smitten, is her taste in earrings.
Adele’s overall style is undeniably vintage, and in music, maquillage, and general taste, the woman obviously shows a penchant for paired down sixties flare. But it’s what hangs from those petite, pale, and feminine ears that tells the real fashion story. In reality this porcelain princess shows a much more grown up and diverse retro aesthetic than many of her American counterparts, effortlessly incorporating designs that encompass everything from 1940’s to 1970’s, and all gently tweaked with a modern twist.
Perhaps the most empowering aspect of the world’s love affair with the British songstress though, is that in a world where thin is in, she makes no apologies for her vivacious curves, and we couldn’t be more delighted. Fast becoming considered as one of the most beautiful women in music, Adele shows no signs of slowing down, having graced the cover of every magazine imaginable including Cosmo, Vogue, Rolling Stone, More, Out, Glamour, Scarlet, the Gentlewoman, Elle, Q, and more than one issue of Billboard.
So why do we love Adele? Why wouldn’t we?
