Going for drama, Adele’s look was comprised of an off-the-shoulder black velvet gown with a cascading skirt. The garment also featured short sleeves and a silky sash that hung low on the waist that was embellished with golden and crystalized brooch. The Grammy Award-winner wore bedazzled eye-catching gold jewelry and styled her mid-length blond locks in voluminous old Hollywood-esque waves.

Adele chose comfort and went barefoot for the occasion. When she is wearing shoes however, the “Easy On Me” singer has luxury taste. Her footwear collection includes pieces from Gianvito Rossi, Chrisitan Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, and Chanel. When it’s not high-tag labels, you can also find Adele in affordable styles like from pumps from Aldo and comfortable sneakers courtesy of Converse and Nike.
