Queen of va, va voom dressing Adele was the jewel in the crown at this year’s Brit Awards. Dressed in a custom Armani Privé gown in keeping with the Old Hollywood glamazon aesthetic she and her stylist Jamie Mizrahi have been honing, the powerhouse singer looked every inch the global superstar coming back to celebrate how far she has come on home turf.
It’s been six years since Adele walked the Brits red carpet in a star-speckled sequined Valentino dress. Much has been made of her LA lifestyle, evident in her glowing skin and toned physique, but her glossy caramel blow-dry, immaculate eyeliner and infectious smile, remains the same. Armani, a brand synonymous with classic eveningwear and the enduring romance of TinselTown, was the perfect choice for her homecoming.
As Armani poster girl Julia Roberts once said of the red-carpet original, “I am always very comfortable in Armani and that translates into confidence and ease.” Adele’s Brits red-carpet moment spelled out effortless seductiveness on a night that was about the national treasure stealing our hearts all over again. True glamour of course comes from within – but her megawatt diamond jewellery (that rock!) certainly helped command the spotlight.
