Adele In Valentino Couture - 2013 Grammy Awards

I was very excited to see Adele take to the red carpet this evening in California at the 2013 Grammy Awards for two reasons.

Firstly, Adele is wearing a colour other than black for a refreshing, long overdue, change; and the shorter version of her Valentino Spring 2013 Couture dress works better for me at knee-length.

The original length could’ve been quite unflattering, overly fussy and not really event appropriate.

Save the longer length for Keira Knightley I say.

Her red-and-black embroidered frock with a full voluminous skirt was styled with matching pumps.

A sweeping updo and glossy lips completed her look.

Do you love this departure from her usual style, or is it not working for you?
