I mean, first off, this woman absolutely OOZES talent. She’s what, 22 now, and the proud owner of multiple Grammys? She’s passionate, ambitious, fearless, and absolutely mesmerizing in performance. Her songs are heart-wrenching, her voice is absolutely hypnotic, and her self-confidence is utterly inspiring.
Secondly, I absolutely adore her personal style. Classic, pared-down, and heavy on the retro influence? Yes, please! She’s worn a couple of Barbara Tfank gowns that stopped me dead in my tracks, I’d like to crawl inside her gorgeous hair to LIVE, and although she’s a little color-shy she certainly knows how to pick gorgeous and flattering silhouettes. I would quite happily swap closets with her.
Now. Body image. Adele has made some disparaging remarks about her peer group’s dressing and body management choices that tarnish her star a bit, if you ask me. But when it comes to her comments on her own figure, weight, and body, she seems to be utterly sincere when she tells reporters that, no, she doesn’t feel like she should drop a few stone to conform to some arbitrary beauty ideal. She says she doesn’t even think about it. Maybe she’s exaggerating, but here’s hoping she’s not. Because her unflagging confidence and her refusal to change herself in the face of fame-related pressures make her an anomaly and a potential role model.
At least, that’s what I think. Are you a fan of Adele? Her music? Her style? Her views on weight and body image?
