Academy Award nominee for best original song for ‘Skyfall’ and a performer of the evening, Adele, took to the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Oscars at the Dolby Theater in L.A.

After after a brief trial with colour at the Grammy Awards, Adele opted for her love of black with a dress from Jenny Packham.

I love Adele in a black gown—it looks so lovely against her alabaster skin—especially this beaded embellished design with sheer to-the-elbow sleeves and a perfectly nipped in waist. She looks elegant, confident, and very Oscars-appropriate.

Aside from the sparkle on her gown, Adele accessorized with a ring and earrings from Harry Winston. The singer’s half-up-half-down hairstyle with a little volume and face-framing strands allowed her retro eyeliner to really pop.

Do you love that Adele went back to her signature black dress style?
