If you were hoping you’d be able to pop out and buy a knock-off version of Adele’s Glastonbury dress – or even the real thing, if you have some money to burn – we’ve got some rather disappointing news. Sorry, ladies, but Adele’s wondrous Chloe frock was a one-off creation.
As the UK’s most sweary songstress took to the stage, people watching from the comfort of their living rooms were just as enthralled by her dress as they were her voice.
But Chloe’s creative director, Clare Waight-Keller, took to Instagram to reveal that the dress was ‘bespoke’. Excuse us as we go away to think of a new summer party outfit.
‘So proud – the incredible amazing @adele live at #Glastonburyfestival in @chloe green bespoke beaded dress – with the best performance ever thank you so much LOVE you Clare x’, wrote the fashion boss, under a picture of Adele mid-song.
Not only was the dress specially commissioned for Adele, 28, but it took a whopping 200 hours to make as each bead and button was hand-stitched to the bodice.
The Telegraph reports that Adele and her stylist, Gaelle Paul, wanted a dress that embodied festival culture. Chloe then came up with the design, which has a decidedly vintage look and has been compared to the Seventies hippie style of other musicians like Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac.
During her set at Glastonbury on Saturday night, Adele swore a huge 33 times during her 90-minute show. She also won the crowd over by bringing young fans onto the stage, and encouraging the whole crowd to sing along during her hit Someone Like You.
That’s why we love you, Adele – we might not be able to get our hands on your dress, but we know you’re just like us at heart.
