Adele fans got a major treat this weekend, when the British singer headlined the American Express Presents BST Hyde Park festival for two nights—her first public concert in five years. For the first time, the star performed songs from her album 30 live to a crowd of over 65,000 fans during her two-hour sets. (In October, however, she did play a small secret show at the L.A. Griffith Observatory, which was televised).
It was only natural that the always-glamorous Adele pulled out all the fashion stops for the stage. F0r night one, Adele chose a chic Schiaparelli look. It included a floor-length velvet gown, complete with long sleeves and a halter neckline. She accessorized it with gold jewelry such as a thin belt and statement earrings (one of her signatures, after all). For night two, Adele then changed into a black, off-the-shoulder Louis Vuitton dress with sequin-embroidered ruffles, which shimmered in the stage lights.
Both of these striking ensembles played into Adele’s ongoing style signatures: The singer has a penchant for classic Old Hollywood silhouettes. Her custom Armani gown at this year’s Brit Awards, complete with a tulle train, is a prime example. And after five years of no Adele concerts, her latest timeless attire proved that her spellbinding stage style is always worth the wait.
