Anyone who's ever seen Adele perform live knows two things: you usually end up crying, and she usually wears a black dress. Aside from the occasional sequin or jewel-tone ensembles, the singer frequents classic onyx numbers when she takes the mic, usually with her signature winged eyeliner and poofed-up hair. However, this week, the LBD fan kicked her monochrome style up a notch while attending Drake's birthday party in Hollywood.
Adele wore a black velvet, off-the-shoulder number to the star-studded festivities, evidenced by a flirty photo she took at the party, which she shared on Instagram last night. Additional images from the function reveal even more details and accessories from her look: Renaissance-like poofy sleeves, a feather bag, a thin belt at the waist, layered jewelry, and minimalist sandals.
"I used to cry but now I sweat #gingermckenna," the chanteuse wrote in the caption while name-dropping Ginger McKenna, Sharon Stone's character in Martin Scorsese's film Casino who also rocked a bouffant and big jewelry. The movie was a fitting source of sartorial inspiration considering Drake's party was mobster-themed, according to Page Six. Other famous attendees included Kylie Jenner, Shay Mitchell, Larsa Pippen, and more.
Adele closed with a sweet shoutout to the now-33-year-old rapper: "Happy birthday to one of the kindest and funniest people I’ve met @champagnepapi." The two are known to be friends, and apparently hit up a vape lounge together in February. #Friendship
