Adele Wears Cardigans for Comfort
Adele adds a cardigan to an outfit to make her feel more comfortable. The singer and stylist Gaelle Paul have worked together for a number of years. She helped create her look for the promo to her single Hometown Glory, in which she wore a simple black dress which was commissioned from Barbara Tfank. It soon became apparent the frock needed a little something extra.
“As the day went on, I realised Adele would need to be comfortable to perform the song in front of the cameras and was thinking, ‘Maybe this dress isn’t such a good idea.’ And then Adele said, ‘Do you mind if I wear my cardigan on top?’ We were already in tune – that was what I was going to suggest,” she told the latest issue of UK magazine Glamour.
Adele is known for her curvy frame but that hasn’t caused Gaelle any problems. Top fashion designers have been lining up to dress the 24-year-old star.
“You look at your resources and think, ‘How do I get what I need, or where else am I going to look now?’” she explained.
“I was in their offices [Burberry and Moschino], pulling stuff out, saying, ‘This is great, can we have sleeves on it? A nipped-in waist? Maybe some embellishment around the neck?’”
