Someone Like Her

Artist Profile:

  • Full name: Adele Laurie Blue Adkins
  • Birthday: May 5, 1988 (age 23)
  • Origin: South London, England
  • Genre: soul/blues/jazz/pop/rock
  • Occupation Singer-Songwriter

          In 2006 she released her album 19 which featured some amazing songs, including Chasing Pavements and Hometown Glory. Her sound captivated people and I definitely got hooked. The best way to describe her voice is soulful, she sings and she feels it! Un-like many of the "artists" today, she actually sings and she sounds great! I love 19 and recently she released her second album 21, another amazing compilation of songs about love and heartbreak. Her first single Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You have been playing everywhere for the last couple of months. Adele does not disappoint, she is still going strong and I personally cannot wait until I get the chance to see her live.

          Most people feel like when they talk about Adele they have to mention that "her looks are not what matter because she has talent", which is true, but they say it to explain why they like her even though she does not look like Britney or the rest of the popular singers.  I hate when people do that, why do they have to explain that, "so what!" she is not your cookie cut singer, she is extraordinary! To me she seems like she is not self conscious about her body or weight, she's just content with who she is and her success. She is someone I admire and respect,  I personally think she is a beautiful woman.

          Her personal style is simple, she often wears black tops or dresses with tights, leggings or skinny jeans and a cardigan, coat or sweater. Sometimes she adds a pop of color and uses big accessories. Adele wears really nice eye make up that shows off her green eyes and a muted lip color. She often has her hair up in a bun or pony tail. Her look is conservative, really sophisticated and elegant. I would love to create a collection inspired by her and her music, create outfits that she would wear, romantic and strong, but with a more youthful twist. She probably wears a lot of black to look slimmer, but I think she can pull off other colors as well as different outfits that will show off her curves. MISSION ADELE!!!
