Adele has undergone a major celebrity transformation since she burst onto the scene nine years ago, and you’re more likely to find her in a red-carpet gown than a jumper dress these day.
From age 19 to a new mother, the basic elements of Adele’s look haven’t changed much. She’s most comfortable in multiple shades of black (seriously, we’ve spotted her in colour about five times in the last nine years), with her stylist Gaelle Paul saying saying it reminds the Hello singer of Johnny Cash, who was always seen in the inky colour. Comfort is definitely key, too; Adele has a seemingly endless supply of cardigans, coats and capes.
As her sales have sky-rocketed, Adele’s beauty looks have become more polished; think red lips, a cat-eye flick and sleek waves. There’s been a lot of attention focused on Adele’s weight loss, too. The singer would look gorgeous at any size, but you can’t help but notice her slimmer figure over the past couple of years.
While Gaelle revealed that Adele does wear Spanx at red carpet events to smooth her out, he also revealed she is “ok with how she looks. She doesn’t have that insecurity”. The lady herself says she doesn’t hang around with anyone who criticizes the way she looks, saying “my life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something petty as what I look like. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine”. We hear you, Adele.
More recently, Adele told Sirius XM that “there's bigger issues going on in the world than how I might feel about myself ... mainly there's only one of you, so why would you want to look like anyone else? Why would you want the same hairstyle as everyone else? And have the same opinions as everyone else?”.
From 19 to now, take a look back at Adele’s total style transformation right here.
