She’s always been notoriously private, so it came as little surprise that Adele and husband Simon Konecki split months before the news was made public. But for someone who was once famed for her down- to-earth nature, former Tottenham native Adele, 31, seems to have gone all Hollywood on us lately.
Last month she stepped out in a Balenciaga coat worth £2.5k and some trendy Louboutin boots. Well, it’s a far cry from her usual high-street brands.
Now Woman can reveal that a flashy wardrobe is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Adele’s new world.
Since shooting to fame
in 2008, Adele’s style has naturally evolved. But it seems that since moving across the pond in 2016 she’s stepped it up a notch. Gone are her former trademark winged eyeliner and beehive, replaced by contoured make-up and a stylish blonde bob.
Adele also used to favour casual, oversized black clothing, but has recently opted for the kind of smart, mega-fashionable looks you’d expect from a diva of her calibre.
In a bubble
A well-placed source tells Woman that the mum-of-one has settled into her Los Angeles bubble, explaining, ‘Adele is still reclusive, but these days she’s more exclusive-reclusive.
‘She loves to throw huge parties at her home and often invites all of her showbiz pals.’
In April last year, Adele became ordained to perform the wedding ceremony of her friend Alan Carr and his partner Paul Drayton in her back garden. It’s thought she paid for everything.
When it comes to commuting to New York – where she was spotted at a recording studio, possibly working on her highly anticipated fourth album – don’t expect to find Adele in economy.
Our source says, ‘Adele takes a private jet from LA to New York and jokes that hopping on a jet is as simple as getting the bus.’
Adele has always been a strong vocal advocate for plus-size women and has often insisted that she’d never lose weight to benefit her career.
But there’s no denying the iconic singer has slimmed down over the past couple of years, and Woman recently revealed she’d dropped around 2st on the so-called ‘heartbreak diet’ after her relationship with her now ex-husband Simon hit a rocky patch.
And we’re told the Hello hitmaker has
a fitness instructor, who’s got her on a pretty strange regime.
Our insider says, ‘Adele is on blended wheat-germ shots for breakfast and is really into yoga these days.
‘She couldn’t be any more Hollywood if she tried!’
Although she’s never been one for the showbiz party scene, it appears that Adele has finally given in and built a circle of super-famous friends. Most recently she enjoyed a night out with Jennifer Lawrence, and these days Adele also counts Emma Stone and Cameron Diaz as good friends.
‘Adele has always chosen her friends carefully,’ our source adds. ‘But it’s safe to say she’s retreated into a world that’s definitely her new “normal”.
‘It’s a surreal LA celebrity world to exist in, but the women Adele socialises with are all smart and self-made, and it’s a place she feels safe. They’ll definitely be helping her get over her split from Simon.’
