She is the glamorous asset of her ultra-designer wardrobe. Back in pictures on the striking appearances of the British singer in a black dress.

Rarely has a piece so marked the life and career of a personality. Again this month, singer Adele wore two ultra-glamorous black dresses during the same concert, on the stage of the BST Hyde Park Festival, in London. The first, signed by the house of Schiaparelli, conferred an hourglass silhouette on the eternal interpreter of Someone Like You Where Hello. A waist marked by a golden metallic belt, a plunging neckline, elegant diva shoulders: so many structured assets, allowing you to highlight it. Same stylistic construction, except for a few details, for her Louis Vuitton dress, which shone with a thousand lights a few moments later. Adele has found her figure, her favorite dress and she sticks to it.

Adele has been faithful to this look since her debut. For her first participation in the Grammy Awards, in 2009, the singer already wore a black dress with a marked waist, skater style, period requires. She had already won two titles, including that of the best artist of the year.

Since then, like a talisman or a lucky charm, it never leaves her. When the whole world sees her become an international star in the clip Rolling in The Deep, in 2011, she wears it accessorized with an equally black head jewel, and an XXL high chignon which will also be her trademark for a long time. When she posts a new silhouette on Instagram to celebrate her 32nd birthday, it’s shorter but it’s still that same favorite creation. Finally, when Adele reappears after a long musical break during a concert event to unveil her new album, who slips on stage? A stellar Schiaparelli dress in taffeta that wraps the diva. No odds possible: the black dress reassures as much as it makes the singer shine in every important moment of her career.

A diva against the tide

What’s more timeless than a black dress? At a time when the new female voices of pop or rap compete in transparency, colors or daring cuts, Adele has chosen constancy: a glamorous, sculptural dress, but always black. A way to master his classics, but also to establish his style, against the current.
