Adele has sold millions and millions of records worldwide with her smash album “21″. She has been able to connect with so many people on so many levels, well… except for fashion.
Adele appeared on the cover of the October 2011 issue of Vogue UK. The singer played up her signature big hair, luscious lips, and piercing eyes. She looked stunning but it still wasn’t enough to move the issue off of the shelves. The magazine’s editor, Alexandra Shulman, revealed recently that, “Adele is the most popular woman in the world, but one of the worst sellers we’ve ever had”. So what does that mean?
Is it possible that even though she is extremely famous and makes music that touches the souls and hearts of everyone, she has a disconnect with the fashion world? If you ask Alexandra Shulman, that’s exactly what that means. She explains that she finds that the key to a successful cover is “there has to be a relationship with the person on the cover that goes beyond how they look”. Naturally one would want to jump to the conclusion and figure that there is no connection between Vogue UK‘s readers and Adele because she’s a plus size girl. This is not necessarily the main reason here. If one were to really examine Adele‘s fashions, one would see …she has none. In fact, Adele is one of the most unfashionably celebrities of today. She always wears black, over-sized enables. Even on stage her clothes show no depth or versatility. Her sense of style, or lack there of, is not one that would connect with your average Vogue reader.
The good news is Adele truly doesn’t give f*ck! Adele is a beautiful plus size woman, who has better things on her mind than what season her jacket is and can she find the right Giuseppe shoe to match. A true Adele fan knows that the glamour and high fashions that Vogue provides for their readers, is not what Adele represents. Even more interesting, Alexandra Shulman went on say that in general that music stars haven’t sold at all well… Adele honey you are not alone.
