WHO WORE WHAT?.....2013 Grammy Awards: Adele in Valentino Couture

Adele chose to wear a Custom dress from the Valentino Haute Couture Spring 2013 Collection (the BEST couture collection of the season!). The dress was shortened to Cocktail length and the top section was lined in black.

While I am a big fan of Adele and Valentino, I can not get on board with this dress. While I like that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli (the designer's of Valentino) shortened the dress and made it more of a bell shape, I think that they should have customized it even more. I feel that they tried to make a pre-designed dress work for Adele, instead of custom designing a dress that worked for her. I wish they would have defined her waist and used less of the lace. Also, by adding the black lining to the top of the dress it just made it heavier looking and took away the light quality the original had.

On a good note her hair and make-up are always flawless; and I love how she stays true to her vintage aesthetic.
